INCAPITATED is a haunting, sexually graphic novel about sex, power, money, and control. It's the story of a young, beautiful Ivy-league graduate who is emotionally and sexually paralyzed by the vices of one of New York City's wealthiest bachelors, an oddly compelling man more than twice her age. Seduced by Mitchell's copious wealth and mesmerized by the power he wields, sh...more

Dark and angry, twisted and sick, abusive and misogynistic, helpless and afraid....this book had all of these elements. A chronicle of time spent traveling the globe with an abusive partner, "Incapitated" is not for the weak. I wondered WHEN the main character (whose name is not made evident right away, so she is an anonymous character throughout) would stand up to Mitchell, her user and abuser. He starts by simple name calling, then denigrates her further by making her find women for the both o...more
I really enjoyed this book by Evelyn C. Dahab. It was quite an adventurous storyline for a new author to tackle, but I feel she did a great job. It was raw and explicit in a way that you feel the shame and humiliation the main character must be feeling. This novel was captivating and you just have to find out how it ended. Does she get away? Does she let it all consume her and die? Does she find strength and fight for her life on her terms? It makes me wonder how many women are in relationships...more
All I cant think to say is... wow. This was definitely the most aggressive and disturbing book that I have read this year. It literally drags you through the destruction caused by an abusive realtionship.
An absolutely mesmerizing read from this talented first time author. She takes you into a world which most of us will never know - an off-center relationship based on control, sexual deviance, extravagant and spontaneous travel, decadent and over the top eating and drinking. I could not survive more than a week or so at this level of indulgence. The protagonist is a young, beautiful Ivy League grad - you are left wondering why she finds this aberrant and debauched lifestyle so seductive. I absol...more
The descent into truth, the confusion that dominates our emotional lives, and the emptiness that leaves us searching for ever more meaning, truth, connectivity and partnership, these are the subjects of Evelyn Dahab's fearless and breathless tale of personal subjection. Not subjugation, but subjection. The becoming of a thing in another's dream. The protagonist's willing suspension of disbelief at the heart of this tale mirrors the reader's own, but the willing suspension of self-control which d...more

One of the most gripping, jolting and powerfully erotic books I have ever read, Incapitated takes you to the edge of each horrifying experience and you find yourself actually seeking solace in the strength and fortitude of the heroine as she employs a clarity and odd reconciliation with the events that beset her. A novel to be read and read again just to register with the odd predatory nature of Mitchell and the almost routinely failing mental health system that is revealed. The potential darkne...more
I got this book for free and I'm glad it was or I would have been pissed.
Just because the current genera is sex and domination and people are reading it like crack doesn't mean EVERY book needs it to "make" the book. This book was not good. This was more about mental illness than living the life style of domination. If you want to read a book about people not in the right mind abusing each other then this is the book for you. The only part of this book I enjoyed was the middle when it had nothin...more

Incapitated is one of the most intriguing books that I have read. It captures you immediately and will not let you go. You keep reading, demanding to know what is going to happen to each of the characters. Amazing to think about what makes them tick. The emotional feelings for the female character, “she”, makes you want to reach out and hold her.
It is a very moving book that makes you pause and think about life, trust, good and evil. I hope the author writes another.

i gave up midway! there is just no logic to what is happening in the book! no development of characters, no reasoning behind their characters! i gave up on about 35%! i skipped to the last few pages, wondering if there was any kind of redemption of the story i would be missing out on but nope there doesnt seem to be any!

i am not rating the book at all! i dont think i can.

One of the best reads I have had in a long while. My hat is off to this new author. Her attention to detail is "Clancy" like. I felt so powerless at times, a remarkable story of the best and worst in humanity. I cannot say enough, except that I wish you didn't live the life experience necessary to write it.
This was an amazing book. It pulls you into the pages and makes it difficult to come out. Dark and adventurous, it will keep you mesmerized from start to finish. It gives you a glimpse of how there could be so much more behind the people you see on a daily basis.
