Could you stop after reading these five sentences?

Say what you like about Harold Robbins (and we had some of his books at my house when I was growing up, along with The Sotweed Factor and The French Lieutenant's Woman), the man knew how to hook readers with a certain lively tawdriness. Like this:

My mom calls these kind of books fudge books. They go down easy, but later you feel kind of queasy.
