    One thought on “Girls' Dormitory”

    1. More thoughtful than sleazy, Girls Dormitory tells the story of rich college girl Peggy, her money hungry roommate and lover Helen, who is also a prostitute, and horny Jerry the pimp and dormitory handy man who makes time with several of the rooming guests possibly impregnating one of them. The writer really stirred the pot with multiple plot lines and the female character's shifting sexuality, however the pacing is strong and the story kept my interest. Sex is only implied and never described, [...]

    2. It was an OK read. I found the same intentions applied to everyone pretty far-fetched but it is what it is. My gripe also came in the shape of Helen never finding her 'reformed whore' stage, like everyone else did. Did I want her to clean up her act and get off the streets? Why shoor, but only if she was ahead of the game & in control.Meanwhile, I totally could have seen Harry & Jerry finding everlasting lust if everyone in the book hadn't had some sort of sexual renewal. XD

    3. In terms of plot complications and complexity of character interactions and the handling of multiple viewpoint narration, this is one of the better Orrie Hitt books that I've read. Also a lot more edge to the dialog and some good character scheming. Overall this deserves less stars, but considering the era, the readership it was targeting, the form to function fit, as I've said in other reviews of Hitt's books - and also ranking it amongst the Hitt oeuvre - this gets a four (but only on my Orrie [...]

    4. Pre-Reading (8/13/15): You had me at pulp fiction with a "lesbian" boarding-school theme. Don't worry it's college not high school. :P

    5. I love old pulp novels---this one started out strong but petered out toward the end. Still an engrossing read though.

    6. This is neither about lesbians nor decent storytelling. It's an ego-stroking fantasy for only the one who wrote it. They just had to leave their cancer out for the world to see, didn't they? This thing sickened me. Spoiler, which is good for you, fellows who intend to take a look at this effortless piece of crap: The pimp gets the girl, whose interest in women is just a passerby in her life. Now pimp gets to live off the treasure of main girl's rich dad, all thanks to curing the disease of women [...]
