Trentacinquenne londinese, la protagonista di questo romanzo è considerata una brava moglie. Fedele e innamorata, vive in modo consapevole la nuova vita coniugale con i suoi alti e bassi, mai però dimentica del passato da single. Ma un giorno la brava moglie incappa in un sospetto. Un sospetto indicibile, che fa crollare in un soffio le certezze conquistate a fatica e il legame ventennale con la migliore amica. Passo dopo passo, sino a quel fondo che molte donne riescono solo a intravedere, seguiamo la protagonista nelle sue tappe più scabrose. Ammette di non aver mai raggiunto l’orgasmo col marito, di essere stata pavida nelle scelte professionali, di considerare il proprio compagno un uomo ordinario e un po’ noioso, rivela di sognare un amante che la leghi al letto e donne che la tocchino, si tuffa in una relazione con un ragazzo più giovane… Un romanzo che esplora l’universo femminile nelle sue pieghe più segrete, dando voce a quello che molte donne non riescono a dire, nemmeno a se stesse.

This book was basically irritating. It starts off with a letter from the anonymous author's mom to the publisher saying that her daughter disappeared, with her infant son, and her car/baby's stroller were found atop a cliff but no bodies were found. She found this manuscript though. So does the manu Leggi tutto
I know there’s a lot of controversy around this book. Firstly, let me just say – this book is not about sex, it is about sexuality. It is not about the act; but instead, the thoughts behind it. Yes, this book contains explicit scenes – but unlike most general fiction novels (cough, The Bronze Horsem Leggi tutto
I absolutely hated and possibly despised this book- so much so that I will have to re-read it to reassess my harsh judgement of it (in the hopes that I was just being a young, inexperienced and intolerant sod at the time). What I find appalling (gee that's a strong word) is that the book sells itsel Leggi tutto
Raw. Painfully honest. Unflinching. Unbearably beautiful. I devoured The Bride Stripped Bare by Nikki Gemmell in one day. Since this is my first foray into erotic fiction, I had very little idea of what to expect. Lots of "sexy sex" I imagined. But The Bride Stripped Bare absolutely floored me from
This was the first book with any type of erotica theme that I'd ever read. I remember being absolutely scattered as I followed this woman's journey of her seeking something that was just so simply destructive. She was an effervescent woman looking for something more, that elusive high that kept the
é simplesmente horrível, 320 de pura agonia...odiar, fica muito aquém daquilo que sinto por este livro...cá vão os motivos porque o odiei: - a fala ser toda seguida (olá, saramago fêmea -.-''') - a personagem principal ser uma mulherzinha completamente frustrada (penso que a autora também o seja) - par Leggi tutto
Whilst my initial expectations behind the concept of this book were that it promised to be a revolutionary and original chronicle about a women's journey of sexual awakening, I was very quickly disappointed, and amazed myself that I managed to persevere until the end, considering that turning every
The best second person narrative I have read, ever! This is languid and beautiful and biting, tragic and edge of your seat. I started the book and within the first chapter I was committed. The litany on loop in my head? "This can't end well." It is the story of a woman's search for herself. Discover Leggi tutto
I found this book kind of confusing. I had trouble deciding what it was supposed to be - erotica? chick lit? mystery? And yet it didn't seem to be quite any of those things. It wasn't erotic enough to be erotica, had too much sex to be chick lit, and wasn't mysterious enough to be a mystery. There we Leggi tutto
Oh my. First off, I had no idea that this book was basically written porn. I usually base my book selections on covers, descriptions, and a page or two of the book. This one has an odd cover. Or, I should say it had an odd cover. The newer editions seem to have more flesh. The description included so Leggi tutto
