Published August 14th by Grove Press first published Aug 28, Tracy Towley rated it did not like it. Jul 01, Lizzie Liu rated it it was amazing. But it felt like it all got so boring af I was looking for this book everywhere.
If I based my review on the writing alone, Innocents would get four stars. But the real highlight of the book is that how Cathy Coote has managed to create the heroine. She was just a pathetic creature,who craves for attention,affection,compliments,touch and most of all,control. They have a mutual attraction.
His innocence, oh the irony, his bashful personality and his good heart She leaves the aunt and uncle who are her guardians and moves in with caathy teacher; together, they quickly embark on a journey into their darkest desires. Sexual scenes are too graphic and obscene. It’s almost brilliant and it shows how ccathy and how terrifyingly smart this young girl is.
While perusing one of the book communities I was apart of, I came across this book. I found xathy psychological insight into a mind of a troubled, provocative and anything-but-innocent teenager very interesting. Jul 14, Meha rated it it was amazing. Nov 30, Tamara rated it really liked it. What saved Lolita for me was the beautiful, lyrical prose that Nabokov implemented, along with showing glimpses of emotion from Humbert and his victim, Lolita.
Lists with This Book. Obviously, I braced myself for some pretty dark taboos vathy of the description and the quick skims of reviews but damn if Coote didn’t take dark to a whole new level! It’s just “we had sex and then we had sex and also we had sex”. I know you think your to blame for what happened.
I couldn’t put it down. This book is perverted, disgusting, and disturbing.

But when the perpetrator is a sixteen-year-old schoolgirl, is she Written when Cathy Coote was nineteen, Innocents is a taut, wickedly clever descent into the anatomy of an obsession, the debut of a precociously assured and provocative young literary voice.
It was criticized, though, for the sexual scenes being too “graphic” and “obscene”.
I couldn’t figure this book out. For instance, she required help bathing and would splash water onto the floor on purpose, and this turned them on leading catuy sex.
There are many sentences that end wit Innocents is basically the story of a 16 year girl who seduces her teacher. Overall, I’m disappointed about this read. To view it, click here. She ultimately finds that her posturing and manipulation, in which she thinks she has attained power, have their limits.
The ascent of my reason from the animal ways of infanthood served only to give a form to my state, as a painter gives shape to a colour. This was written in a way most people wouldn’t understand. Okay, first of all, I’m still astounded by the fact that I grew to know the protagonist so intimately, learned how she thinks, learned that she’s a raging freaking psychopath who has to fake all her emotions and gets off on manipulating and seducing her unfortunate teacher-lover who ends up being almost as fucked up as she is.
What was most disturbing for me was the complete role reversal and the fact that it’s the student doing the seducing and the teacher who appears to be naive and immature.
Blundering around inside my own instincts, handicapped. This was not about romance, but about manipulation and control.
The book’s title obviously refers to both characters; their relationship takes them both into uncharted territory. Relatively serious though it is, make no mistake, this is a sex book, full of arousing moments. It made reading this a chore, especially when the dialogue tries to be coore pheromone driven and angsty.
