terrible book, no real story line at all, and possibly the least erotic 'erotica' I've ever read. thank goodness it was only a penny to buy!

The strapline at the top of the cover of this book reads "An erotic bestseller". I cannot find an iota of eros in the book.

Never mind - what is it like as a read?

It may be that it suffered from the translation process because there was scarcely a sentence in the first 40 pages that did not contain a word that did not fit the context. Some of the jarring malapropisms consisted of contradictions with previous statements, so they were not all accidental, but perhaps in the original language they create some picture of the character of the protagonist.

So you have to be determined to read beyond the first section of the book.

And then the authoress describes the most obviously dysfunctional 'relationship' I have ever read; entered into with the protagonist's insight flagged up in advance. This is the event that propels her into her experiences in a brothel.

If you are still with it, the book then becomes a better read (in the last quarter). There is still no eros, but descriptions of personalities which are quite coherent and writing that at least makes sense.

I have not finished the book but am now engaged enough to want to know how the story resolves.

She wrote much better books later on but at the end of the day it is a pleasant and easy book to read. Gets better as the book progresses and eventually captivates one's curiosity.
What baffles me, assuming that all that was written in this book is true, is the lucidity with which the author narrates it all.

Dull, dull, dull! If you're after a book with a hint of eroticism then this is not for you! After reading 'The Butcher, The Baker, The Candlestick Maker' I thought this may be in the same vain but how wrong was I?!
This is not erotic and is hardly even 'sexual adventures' as the title suggests, it is mind numbing drivvle (she compares her orgasm to fusing with the Cosmos for goodness sake!)
If you want a page turner and something to increase your heart rate even slightly then I do not recommend you buy this nonsense.

"Insatiable" is a rare treat in the fact that it has a good story but it's not totally unbelievable. It kept my eyes glued to the page, to say the least. The adventures of such a younger girl might make some cringe, but I thought it wasn't all that unrealistic.
If you are looking for a good read that will keep you turning the pages, "Insatiable" could be it. Other suggestions: "A Hundred Strokes of the Brush" and "Take Your Shirt Off".

Need an erotic read with a thoughtfully written believable story about real life with detailed sexual encounters? Then this could be what you are after

Easy reading for bedtimes, evenings or holidays.

As long as you know what you are getting (don't expect this book to challenge the literary greats) Then this is the book for you

(on a similar level i would recommend Melissa P 100 strokes...)

"Insatiable" is a story about love, courage and the human condition. The authoress is an example of freedom use of female sexuality and a brillant mind who can make easy deeply reflexions about what we are. Two inches over the floor she seems be outside of the moral rules and social hypocrisy. Very recommend book and very recommend woman. I have fund her personnal web: [...] Good complement at the book.

This is an amazing account of a girls life.
Once i had got a quarter of the way through this book, i not only couldn't put it down, but I was sat on the edge of my seat to see what happened to her next.
The books draws you into it as if you are apart of it.
Although this book was quite tame in its accound of what happens to girls who choose prostitution as a way of life. I can recommend this book to anyone who wants an insight into prostitution.
