Warning: this review is explicit. Obviously.

First of all, this book makes '50 Shades of Grey' read like 'Pride and Prejudice'. If the back cover hadn’t revealed who Sasha Grey was, I certainly would have sussed it out after reading just a few pages: the dialogue may as well have been taken straight out of a porn movie. “Your hard cock feels so good in my tight little mouth. It tastes so good. It feels so fucking good, doesn’t it?” This confused me, as I was under the impression that the protag

Sasha Grey writes, "Plot is always subservient to character." Too bad she didn't listen to her own advice.
The Juliette Society is by no means about a secret sex club called The Juliette Society. It is basically a series of diary-like paragraphs from a woman named Catherine, who constantly daydreams about sex, with anyone, anywhere but isn't getting any from her boring boyfriend who I would have dumped by now. The club in question is only mentioned about six or seven chapters in, and is quite fra

La curiosidad mató al gato y con tanta publicidad que le están haciendo a Sahsa Grey, tenia curiosidad por ver si se le da bien esto de escribir, o solo domina la oratoria. Como actriz “convencional” solo me ha convenido de momento en la temporada de Entourage que sale y mas que nada porque hace de si misma. Pero como escritora el suspenso es total y es que hablando mal y pronto, menuda puta mierda de libro que ha colado.

The Juliette Society, straight from its Sade's reference in its title, is the work of someone who knows literature as much as she knows what she's talking about when she's talking about sex and it's hard not to think about a few authors such as Chuck Palahniuk, Bret Easton Ellis and of course Sade himself, when reading chapters in which, for instance, Grey brings her character into some bizarre places where power, sex and violence merge into one. Unfortunately, Grey never manages to take her dis ...more

Since this is the closest I’ll ever come to making love with a porn star, I wanted to take full advantage of the situation, having been introduced to Sasha Grey through the marketing and promotional campaign of The Girlfriend Experience—although full disclosure I never did see the movie. Thank you Steven Soderbergh. And if I can still remember her name years later…well, that probably gives you some indication of why I read so many novels a year. So continuing on in my current erotica experiment, ...more

The Juliette Society is the debut novel of Sasha Grey, a former porn star. For this reason alone it's attracting plenty of attention, although a lot of the reviews I've read (on Goodreads and Amazon) seem to be negative. The story itself is an intriguing proposition: it's about a film student called Catherine, who pursues a friendship with Anna, a classmate who fascinates her; and in turn, Anna introduces her to a secret underground organisation known as the Juliette Society. Catherine is frustr ...more

En varias ocasiones he tratado de terminar este libro, pero simplemente no lo logro.

Si la primicia y planteamiento del libro son muy interesantes, pero el desarrollo de la historia no logra engancharme y lo peor, la protagonista me aburre demasiado.

Pase la mitad del libro leyendo a detalle sus fantasías sexuales pero justo cuando tiene la oportunidad de realizarlas le da miedo y huye, Pffff.

I stumbled upon this book by total chance. I was in Tesco (fellow speed readers from the UK. If you run out of stuff to read go to Tescos.. 3 books for £7 and you can get some pretty good ones on the UK topsellers list!)

Anyway,I had 2 novels picked out,was in a rush and needed another so I thought i'd play a game I never usually play and pick one that had a pretty cover and an intriguing name. So I picked up this. And I got home and it was my day off, and I've read the whole thing in 2 hours.

What can I say, curiousity got the best of me. I'm all about people turning their life around for the better. A porn star giving a go at being a writer. Why not? Go for it!

I couldn't tell you what this book was about. It was all over the place. I gave up at 50%.
So basicly this book is about a heroine who is not satisfied with her sex life. Sure, her boyfriend is great, if only he would spank her once in a while. It doesn't read as an actual book. It's more like a bunch of diary entries, with to

I received my copy from Sphere through Nudge and rated it 3.5 stars.

Every now and again I finish a book and find that I don’t know how I feel about it or what rating to give it. This is one of those books.

A few weeks ago I read an article about Sasha Grey and she fascinated me. She started a career in adult films shortly after turning 18 and turned herself into one of the world’s most successful porn actresses only to shoot her last pornographic movie when she was 21. Not surprising, when someb

***Review based on audiobook***

Let me break from tradition a bit and start with the narration instead of the story/plot. Sasha wrote this novel and, presumably, she cared about it but none of that comes through in her narration. She's dull, robotic and clinical except when she does a character. When she speaks the words of a character she seems almost mocking...although that may just be her accent.

Now onto the "plot" such as it is. The character (who's name doesn't matter as I'll explain in a mo

If you're ever interested in reading a porn movie, this is the book


I thought I was heading into a world of Juliette by Marquis de Sade. The title sounded interesting, some kind of a secret underworld club where sophisticated and other important members of the society meet to have unrestrained sex. Perhaps some cultivated type of perverted sex. Instead I met this Catherine, struggling to get shagged by her hard-working boyfriend and sets up for a journey of sexual encounters and fantasies, but wa

Δεν καταλαβαίνω για ποιο λόγο εκδόθηκε. Στην Αμερική το καταλαβαίνω γιατί η συγγραφέας ως γνωστή πορνοστάρ θα είχε το κοινό της. Όμως για ποιο λόγο να το μεταφράσει ένας ελληνικός εκδοτικός???? Το μόνο που μπορείς να πεις για αυτό το βιβλίο είναι πως είναι καλογραμμέ

I was so conflicted in rating this book. On one hand I honestly really enjoyed it. It was unlike any other *erotic* novel I have read. There are some one liners thrown in here that are seriously laugh out loud funny and the insight into Catherines mind is written in a really original and intriguing way with a voice that is shockingly honest and vivid.

But I found myself lost at times having to re-read some paragraphs to try to decipher if it was really going on or if the last three pages were jus

Otra vez vuelvo a llevarle la contraria a Goodreads y al mundo porque a mí este libro sí me ha gustado.

A ver, no me ha encantado ya que me esperaba una castaña pornográfica importante y ha resultado ser una novela interesante (e inquietante a veces). Podría decir que me ha sorprendido positivamente.

La verdad es que, por las reseñas que había leído antes, me esperaba un "50 sombras de Grey" (es decir, una mierda superultrahipermegamachista) escrito por una actriz porno, pero no. El libro es...

mmmmmmmm... that was... something.
This is a clear lack of identity from the writer. The novel was weird and all over the place- it doesn't seem to know what genre it is either. Murder mystery? erotica? pop culture essay? sexuality study? NA novel?
no idea.
It was okay. The voice was very hazy and unbelievable. Wouldn't recommend.

Lo primero que me compré en la tienda Kindle México fue La sociedad Juliette de Sasha Grey. Una compra de amor. En el fondo, tenía grandes esperanzas, pero no me lo decía para no parecerme cursi.

Desde el principio se nota que la Grey ha leído a Palahniuk: oraciones cortas, reiteraciones, posibles diálogos con el lector, puntos y aparte que funcionan. Y, claro, personajes más o menos cuarteados. Sólo más o menos. Tristemente, las cuarteaduras llegan a convertirse en errores de construcción.

The Juliette Society by Sasha Grey was her debut book in the literary world. First and foremost, the simplicity of this book cover was something that caught my attention. I loved how it makes readers guess what the author is trying to portray like there is some secret awaiting to be unfolded. As for the book itself, I enjoyed The Juliette Society.

So yes this book is good, and very well written, bit god has it made me feel tricked! I picked it up because I loved the the synopsis: “A secret club where the world’s most powerful people meet to explore their deepest, often darkest sexual fantasies.” But it really is just that. She does nothing to portray this secret society, or how she managed to get in there - okay, she does, but it really is disappointing. It was through her friend's friend, Bundy. A guy who runs se

Sasha Grey sabe escribir.

Seks je moć. Ili, bolje rečeno, seksualne su igre ujedno i igre moći u kojima je netko uvijek potčinjen, a netko je drugi, samim time, dominantan… Bar nas u to žele uvjeriti mahom autorice sveprisutne erotske (da ne kažemo porno) literature. Dragi muškarci, ako ste mislili da će za vas nastupiti svijetliji dani kada žene, željne „nečeg novog“ umjesto za savjetima iz ženskih časopisa posegnu za savjetima porno dive, prevarili ste se.
