It is a shame that Anais Nin is far more significant as an author of random proverbs and quotes than of novels. She is most famous for the notes she made in her journals. Her novels lack coherent plotting and engaging character development. The characters in this novel remain quite vague and unrealized as concrete creatures throughout, and the plot is almost non-existent. People who say they love Anais Nin almost always mean they love some of her wonderful one-liners.
