The Second Life of Isadora Tooley: New Novel That's Sorta SL-Meets-50 Shades of Grey Romantic Thriller
The Second Life of Isadora Tooley is a new e-book novel by db hobbs, and since it's about an actress with a waning career and a failed marriage who discovers a new (if virtual) world of erotic exploration, I asked the author, "Fair to say it's 50 Shades of Grey meets Second Life?" And author db hobbs answered this way:
"It’s funny that you mention Fifty Shades of Grey. My publisher did as well after reading my book. It's an interesting description... but I think my book is laced with more dark humor than E. L. James’ book. Of course, The Second Life of Isadora Tooley is a romantic thriller which means there’s some sex and violence, but it’s mostly about relationships and musings about the nature of reality set against the backdrop of Second Life. At the same time, some of the imagery is graphic and not for the fainthearted. I tried not to pull any punches."
So, you have been warned -- or enticed, as the case may be. I read the first chapter, and it's a pretty engaging page turner if you're into this kind of thing (and I bet many of you are). The first few chapters of the Kindle edition are free, so why not check it out, and share your thoughts below.
