5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous! Just what I've always wanted!!! 23 Jan 2000
This is brilliant. Geoff Nicholson knows how to turn himself into a true foot-perv. The atmosphere of foot-eroticism is pretty-much perfect here. Some of these scenes are unspeakably arousing. I won't pretend there's any point to the plot, such as it is, nor the character development. What this is is fodder for those of us who understand what real love is!!

5.0 out of 5 stars An eye opening classic 7 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book in Uni originally, and bought it again recently (second hand) to re-read. It's a real eye opener, a compelling and entertaining read - you'll never look at shoes the same way again. In the era of Shade of Grey they really should reissue this book to the now eager audience looking for their next fetish-based read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Spiked Heel Diaries, the book. 18 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on
This is quite a delightful little book. Despite what some of the reviews might say, it's very humerous in a generally light and almost chirpy sort of way. The hero remains likeable and upbeat despite whatever pervy behavior he might be describing and his great lady friend is, despite some initially sinister intimations quite the sanest and most reasonable person in the book. The author, Mr. Nicholson, has obviously done his research on the subject and provides such a detailed account of the vagaries of foot love that one begins to wonder about his own proclivities. The only problem I have with the book is that Catherine is a little flat and underwritten.
I have heard that the book has been optioned for a film but, seeing no reference to it on the IMDb, I wonder how true that is. I could quite well see a film of this being made which, if cleverly cut, could easily pass for an R if not an NC-17 rating. It would be something like Crash, but a whole lot funnier and more fun. Biggest problem, though, would be the casting. Ralph Fiennes and Catherine Keener would be great, but I doubt they'd be caught dead peforming any of the books various, um, activities on film.

2.0 out of 5 stars Should have been called Shoelover 21 Feb 2003
By John Howard - Published on
I finished this book after many trips to the library on my lunch break because I was too embarrassed to check it out and have people I know see me with it. Despite a lot of lip service that the protaganist pays to being a "foot and shoe fetishist" and not being interested in the shoes without the feet, his actions make it clear that it is the shoes that are the focus of his admiration, and the feet are not much more than a means to display the shoes he finds so compelling. I mean, he has an entire collection of shoes, he steals shoes from women who leave them in public.
What plot there is in the book is flat, very poorly developed, and all too conveniently wrapped up. While there is much exploration of the main character and his interests and motiviations, there is little or no depth to any of the other characters in the book, especially Catherine, whose feet the protaganist is smitten with. However, that may be intentional by the author because it is her feet, and nothing else about her that so transfixes the protagonist (I don't think I ever caught his name). Also, there is a lot of historical garbage about feet and fetishes that is superfluous, and often simply disgusting. There is a very small twist at the end that I thought was fairly interesting, but it didn't make up for the near complete lack of any attention to plot development.
All in all, if you have a shoe fetish, you'll probably find this book very compelling just because of the fetish aspect. If you have a foot fetish, you'll probably find it interesting for the same reason, although it's probably not exactly what you might expect. For anyone else, you'll probably just think the whole thing is strange.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable reading, a page-turner 14 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on
A witty and sober view of the balance between sexual needs and social normalcy. The narrator is constantly conscious about the balance and conflicts between the two. A fine work with a kinky overtone. Taught me everything I ever need to know about foot fetish.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must for anyone who's into female feet 17 Dec 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Excelent. I had to read it all at once. A very good example of the foot fetishist as well as an interesting set of thoughts about the subject. I guess I could see myself in the shoes of the main character, so much that it could be a description of myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some people are soo insecure 3 Dec 2005
By Beautiful Dreamer - Published on
I have to admit it was quite a few years ago that I read this book but it left a lasting impression on me. No, I have yet to develop any sort of foot fetish but i recall the heightened awareness of never looking at another person's feet quite the same way again. In fact, i would have to say it instilled in me a deeper appreciation and adimiration for the human foot and the process of buying a new pair of shoes has never been quite the same. Afterall, what does your shoes say about you?

Not for the faint of heart, Geoff Nicholson promises to drive you deep into the world of fetishism. Embrace the journey, because allowing yourself to enjoy this book doesn't make you a sicko.
