Having read the other books in The Carnal Set, when we got an email from author Lottie Winter to say there was another instalment in the Victorian Dark Erotic book series, I felt compelled to read Lizzie too, and I am pleased to say that one again Lottie really has a grasp of the Victorian era taking great pride I am sure in researching her use of words to fit perfectly.
As with all Lottie Winter Carnal Set books, Lizzie is classed as erotica with a story, this time telling the tale of Lizzie a women who has strived hard to pull herself up from the dredges of poverty by using the only valuable assets she has, namely her looks and body. The story follows her life as she recounts her life in one of London’s most exclusive brothels, and the eventual meeting of two very distinctive gentlemen! The crux of the story is the bond that from with all three of them, a bond which is mutually beneficial to all.
Or perhaps a more apt title would be Who is a Celebrity? It used to be an easy question to answer – there was a simple alphabet of celebs – with the A listers at the top and the Z listers way down below. The A listers were the movie stars, the Hollywood movers and shakers and all celebrity flowed from them, everyone on the celebrity bandwagon knew that they were the ones to emulate, it was their stardom that was ultimately sought. After the A listers came everyone else, from successful TV actors and personalities, right down to a has been who had a small part in a movie once and who then spent the rest of their lives attempting to prove to anyone who would listen that they really were a celebrity and that turning on Little Bocking’s Christmas lights was proof of this.
Money doesn’t the hit make! We love a web series here at Razberry Towers, regularly trawling the world wide interweb in search of some original fresh entertainment, and Geek & Sundry, the home of the excellence in web comedy that is The Guild (arguably the funniest web series ever made – unless you know of something funnier….), and Space Janitors, has the best credentials and something that most don’t – money!
So when we saw that there was a new offering from Geek & Sundry, co-written by Felicia Day, who is our absolutely favourite internet celeb (she kinda oozes – “well bugger it, I will just do it myself then”) we were rather pleased and almost excited to have a watch.
It was the summer holidays and I was about 10 years old (so we are talking rather a long time ago), together with my Mum, and my sisters we were in the toy section of our local department store, armed with summer holiday pocket money, saved diligently for months (or at least weeks!)
