The notorious novel of dark obsession

How far will a woman go to express her love? In this exquisite novel of passion and desire, the answer emerges through a daring exploration of the deepest bonds of sensual domination. "O" is a beautiful Parisian fashion photographer, determined to understand and prove her consuming devotion to her lover, René, through complete submission to his every whim, his every desire.

It is a journey of forbidden, dangerous choices that sweeps her through the secret gardens of the sexual underground. From the inner sanctum of a private club where willing women are schooled in the art of subjugation to the excruciating embraces of René's friend Sir Stephen, O tests the outermost limits of pleasure. For as O discovers, true freedom lies in her pure and complete willingness to do anything for love.

Not much of a novel: more like the last quarter of one, at best. Very little characterization, not much plot, not much meaning either. Starts off with a chapter that is all bondage and masochism, and ends, with pretty much the same thing.

I found this novel disturbing and quite frankly, disgusting. "O" has no concept of her self worth or self respect. I found this narrative denigrating and dehumanizing. Not an erotic tale at all!
