4.0 out of 5 stars Shockingly brutal 24 Jun. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As love stories go - and this is without doubt one of the most notorious of love stories - there is none so brutal. Of course this is no surprise given the subject matter and it's significance as a work that defines masochism itself, but nevertheless the thread of devotion that is woven through the brutality is absolutely key to its success.

If you are looking for titillation,look elsewhere unless of course the subject matter is itself the source of your titillation. It is though a worthwhile read for those with more mainstream tastes, giving as it does an insight into this fetishistic hinterland.

Having known about this publication for years, I'd never read it, but am glad I did. Considering it was first published in 1870, much of the content seems to influence everything that is written since then about a male wishing to submit to a female. For me, this book defines the basics of such relationships and serves as a warning to men who have similar inclinations. Excellent read as far as I am concerned.

I bought this after it appeared in a list of Top Kinky Books.... (that wasn't the actual title, but close enough) and so I was disappointed. Perhaps if I had had different expectations I might have enjoyed it more. It is an interesting look at the darker sides of S+M personalities.

This is an intensely irritating book. I suspect one would have to be a masochist to enjoy it. I really struggled to get to the end of it and many times felt like whipping the protagonist myself and telling him to grow up and get on with it.

Good read, it's free and I would recommend for some of my friends who enjoy this kind of thing. I'm still halfway throught the book and haven't noticed much typos etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as it should be. 22 May 2014

Let the degradation commence! Severin could use a thrashing anyway as the accumulation of scars on his back *may* just provide him with some spinal fortitude...

3.0 out of 5 stars Venus In Furs 13 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well written, not especially erotic. I was more interested in the author's biography.

So this is the book that defines masochism. It's a very interesting to read but I cannot apply the terms like or dislike to it.
