The author takes the reader through the problems faced by Britain in the 70s and takes a woman spy Serena Frome (rhymes with plume) as a lead character, in an era where women struggle to move into the ladder (forget up the ladder).
It seems like Serena has a taste for odd men. And those men causes her life to be, what one can say, not a plain and boring one. Though she herself doesn't understand the influence these men have on her, until it is too late.
I finished the book and felt little dazed, trying to replay the entire story in my mind all over again. The last chapter has an interesting twist to the whole plot. Though I felt number of episodes in the book fell flat, the last chapter provides clarity to the lose ends of the story. And it does get boring sometimes that I did skip few pages and didn't miss a thing of the plot. But I didn't skip the stories written by Tom (one of the characters) because I found the stories dark and gave a whole new perspective of Tom's character and the influences he was drawing upon.
Sweet Tooth is an interesting one-time read, with an unusual narration.
