. My problem with Freedom Angst is that I never really felt the lust part. It felt a bit forced, and the only character that really matched the lust was the Intendant, but even that fell flat.
I really don't understand this criticism. Is it possible that so many people have a completely different understanding of the word 'lust' than I do? Oxford dictionary defines it as 1. strong sexual desire, 2. passionate desire for something. What exactly is 'lust', according to you, and what did people expect to see in a story about lust? People having orgies?
I figured it would have been either, to be honest.

But I never felt the "passionate desire for something", even. Maybe it's just me.

In fact, the story seemed quite...mechanical.
