5.0 out of 5 stars shocking or arousing?, 13 July 2004
This review is from: The Animal House (Nexus) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the first erotic novel I ever read - I never used to be interested in that sort of thing - but this Animal House sounded intriguing. Having recently divorced and needing a 'pick-me-up', I read it very quickly a month or so ago and it certainly had the desired effect!
I have now started reading other books of the same type but none so far are as shocking and arousing as this first one. Though perhaps that is simply because I am new to erotica and the first one is always the best in your memory.
But there were several scenarios in The Animal House which made my jaw drop. For instance, the young heroine - staying in a French chateau run by a male dominant - is tied to a water wheel and dunked like a witch for being disobedient. That seemed too cruel a punishment, at first, but the book got worse. Or perhaps I should say better?
The plot was quite simple. The heroine's mother is a film star-cum-prostitute, as I understand it, and the 'hero' of The Animal House is obsessed with her. So he invites her daughter to his chateau and tortures the unfortunate girl until she admits to being as submissive as her mother. This torture is very real, believe me, involving whips, clamps, and even a medieval Scold's Bridle!
I am not sure that such things would be arousing in reality - too painful for the woman, surely? - but as an innocent male fantasy in a novel like this they work extremely well. Though on that note, I would be interested to know whether the writer 'Cat Scarlett' is truly a woman, since she seems to enjoy subjecting her heroine to so many torments!

5.0 out of 5 stars Close to the Bone, 22 July 2004
This review is from: The Animal House (Nexus) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is an entertaining take on 'dungeon' literature, and quite well-written. The heroine protests a little too much at times - I prefer books where the girls are more up for it than the men - but she improves as the punishments accumulate.
As mentioned before, the water wheel scene is very close to the bone. But the hunt at the end is my personal favourite. Almost poettic, the way it's written. Hounds baying in the darkness, the poor heroine unable to see where she's going because the eyeholes in her mask are too small, and the men chasing her through the forest like a pack of starving wolves. You just know she isn't going to escape!
Perfect reading for the train!

5.0 out of 5 stars pushing the limits, 17 Mar 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: The Animal House (Nexus) (Mass Market Paperback)
THE ANIMAL HOUSE is a racy and impressive read. It constantly pushes the limits of consent, the heroine being forced into punishments and erotic situations she does not agree to.
There is a surreal and 'forbidden' edge to the book because of the use of animal masks by the main characters, moving into dangerous territory at times without actually involving genuine bestiality.
Worth buying if you like your action raw and your heroines on the feisty and reluctant to cooperate side. Made me have to pause for a breather occasionally!
