I thought this would be a sensual read, but it was so matter of fact in description it was spoiled. It is also about a teenage girl who has sex with anyone - servants, family members etc. The author tries to imply that incest and child abuse are quite ordinary events in the education of children as they explore sex. I found it repulsive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Poor girl needs to come up for air! 15 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This also was my first try at reading erotica. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had previously been told that male erotica writers aren't very good, so I was very leary of reading this.
Eveline is the account of a young female's (18+) sexual encounters and deals with many issues that, though I don't agree with, find highly arousing. Some of the issues are incest, rape (though she seemed to enjoy it, so is it truly rape?), voyeurism, plus more. The most arousing thing about this book for me was her taste for big men. She has a variety of lovers with an age group ranging from young to old.
I would like to have seen more detail and feel that romance books are more to my tastes, because they put more feeling into the act. Eveline, on the other hand, was more of a nymphomaniac that wanted it from whomever and whenever she could get it. To each his own...thank goodness, huh?
I am now reading MY SECRET LIFE by "Walter". It is a wonderful story and I am learning quite alot! Check it out, as well!

3.0 out of 5 stars Victorian era nymphomaniac? 9 Oct. 2000
By Rudolf Spoerer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Eveline is a 1987 reprint of a 1904 book of the same name published by Grove Press and now part of the Blue Moon series ....
I only give it 3 stars since it is a very erotic account of the life and mostly erotic experiences of a Victorian lady. The book is written in the first person and generally sticks to Evelines feelings and thoughts and the development of her character ....
To say that she has her mouthfull thru most of the book would be an understatement as Eveline manages to seduce pretty well all the men around her.
Also, the differences of this book and others that are in my library is that the sex is pretty straight by erotic standards. has little same sex escapades and almost no S&M of any kind ...
As a first book into the realm of erotic writing I would recommend it highly ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Eveline, the Seducer 4 Nov. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Excellent. This book, without the first "F" word, gets to you right in the crotch. The sequel is even better.

4.0 out of 5 stars good erotic book! 2 Aug. 2010
By the teacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Not for the faint of heart! This book must be read with an "open mind". It is a good erotic story and can be re read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 30 Mar. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the first time that I have ever read erotica. I thought that it was pretty good, certainly a page turner. Some of the situations that Eveline was in, I found outrageous but I guess it's all fiction anyway. A good, fun read. I especially liked the way it ended.
