9. The Story of O

The Story of O - Pauline Reage (Anne Desclos)

This was given to me by a guy at work. Yes, the same guy who gave me the Batman "graphic novel". I won't be getting any more books from him. He is obviously not into the same stuff I like.

This is a story about a woman who becomes her lover's slave. They are into a world of sado-masochism, bondage and disciplne. I just can't relate.

I read some information on-line about the book and find the history of the book and it's author a little interesting, but the book itself didn't do much for me.


  1. Kind of weird that this is the book that he chose to lend you. I mean even if it was my favorite book ever, I'm not sure it's the kind of thing I would try and push upon a co-worker.

  2. He is a weird guy. He sometimes says and does things to provoke people and to get a reaction. I will assume that is why he handed me this book.

    My only reaction will be this blog post, which he will probably never see.

  3. I felt the same way about this book when I read it in college.
