This review is from: The Sexual Life of Catherine M (Paperback)
The concept behind the book is intriguing in that it is about a woman's multiple sexual partners. However, the actual content is quite disappointing and fails to deliver an interesting and constructive discussion on the subject.
The initial part of the book was actually quite titillating but after about 20 pages of Ms Millet's confusing narrative about her fantasies and what really happened, it became boring and repetitive.
I found the content very shallow and not very constructive. There appeared to be no conclusion or even a point to the book at all except that it is fundamentally a medium for Ms Millet to "brag" about her past experiences which really are not particularly fascinating or novel.
To sum up, I am actually enraged that Ms Millet is making money from this poorly written book when there are plenty of very talented unknown writers out there that could do a far better job. What is even more annoying is that I bought the book on the pretext that it would provide an intelligent viewpoint on women's sexuality.
