Read in April, 2010

Obsession, kidnapping, rape, torture, murder, and sexual acts you've probably never dreamed of. Reading this is akin to binge watching every season of Criminal Minds. Without the BAU team or the investigations. Just the crimes. One after the other after the other after the other......

Amanda Harford I started to want to read it after i read "justine" but then i put it back on the shelf. let me know if it's worth reading.

Dan Porter Got through the introduction - which actually introduces the characters and setting of the story in great detail - and I can already tell that the sexual/perversion aspects of this one will be much more "in your face" than those in Justine. Not sure yet if this will contain as much of Sade's philosophy as Justine did.

Jayme Interesting choice. Can't wait to see what you think of it. I think I'd like to try this one day.

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) I hope you write a review of this.

message 5: by Dan (new) - rated it 2 stars

Dan Porter Finished last night. I'll write a review but need a couple of days distance from it before I do.

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) I'm looking forward to it.

Becky Well, you're already far more generous with this than I was. 2 star!
I'd have given it negative stars if I could. Although, my edition was close to 800 pgs (there were other writings included), and even skimming and skipping, it still made me nauseous. Gak!
