When I first bought "O" I was unsure about reading it. I was brought up to be a liberated woman and not to be submissive to anyone. But upon my first hesitant glance at it's contents I was hooked. As O found power through surrender so did I and as O suffered I thrived. This erotic masterpiece has forever changed my life and brought a new perspective to my...

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing, 13. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Story of O (Taschenbuch)
This story is well-written from a technical point of view. The language is colorful and alive. It has a nice mixture of drama and psychological revelations about a woman becoming more and more involved in slavery. I use the word "slavery" because this story really is about slavery. It's not a love story and anyone looking for some semblance of love in this story will be very disappointed. Although there were declarations of love by several of the characters in this story, I feel that none of them really felt love. They were tied up in the trimmings of a master/slave relationship, but I feel that they really didn't know or appreciate the meaning of such a relationship. My guess is that this is because the author had not experienced such a relationship and didn't fully understand it herself.
As someone who has been honored by a woman who has given herself to me as my slave, I was upset with the portrayal of the lifestyle in the book. In my view, there was no love and no closeness in any of the relationships in this story. It was more a story of abuse and debasement more than anything else. The physical acts were not intrinsically debasing, but it was the separation of the acts from any sense of love and affection that caused them to be debasing and abusive. The acts of S&M were not used to bring people closer or to let them feel a deeper intimacy. The acts were simply to fulfill some deep need that the characters had for giving and receiving pain and humiliation. I felt as though something which can be beautiful was turned into something ugly. When someone gives their self completely to another as a slave, it's something to be treasured, not something to be thrown away or loaned out to others. I can't imagine that any master who loved and treasured his slave would allow another to do the things to her that were done in this story. People are not like this. If you treasure something, perhaps you want to show it off, but you certainly wouldn't let someone else defile it.
I ended up not liking any of the characters and I feel that this author's talent for writing was wasted on an unrealistic and debasing storyline. This story is much more about slavery than about what most people would think of as a Master/slave or D/s relationship.

As O found power through surrender so did I and as O suffered I thrived. This erotic masterpiece has forever changed my life and brought a new perspective to my sexual desires. It opened my eyes to a wonderful new world and I will forever praise Pauline Reage for creating a world of desire that I envy.

4.0 von 5 Sternen "O" is a most accurate single-text primer on D/s behavior..., 24. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Story of O (Taschenbuch)
IF you only have One text on 'bdsm' behavior in your personal library... this novel should be It! "O" was given to me by Elaine in 1978 without a word of explanation. After reading and rereading it over the years, I am grateful to "E" for introducing me to the "Master James" inside. I have found that simply mentioning "The Story of O" to certain women unlocks a unique door to explore and share their true nature. I believe "O" to be a true cult classic much as "A Boy and His Dog" is to Don Johnson fans, and "The Rose" is to an understanding of love. In the beginning I thought "O" was mere fiction, however, towards the end I began to realize the "Reality" those pages hold for the reader who has an open mind. Over the years I have personally Discovered lifestyles within lifestyles, behavior within behavior, realities within curiosities, Needs within desires. If you read Only One text on the subject of D/s, it has to be "O" which is a 'novel'... or Is it?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beware those faint of mind!!!, 3. Juli 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Story of O (Taschenbuch)
If you are the least bit close-minded, this book is not for you. To appreciate this novel, one must enter its pages submissively with an open mind.
Despite some of the adverse reviews this novel has received, I feel that the persons who delivered those reviews originially entered its pages with an open mind, but through conforming to society's rules, decided that the book was filfth and deviant.
What "O" endures is repulsive and needless to many. But in reality, all of us face what "O" does in our lives. It is within the choices that we make that distinguish us from her.
"O"is given the choice to be free or to be bound; hence, she chooses the bondage and in doing so strengthens her love for Rene. This parallels with the choices we make to remain in our stifling jobs (and our love for money, social status, and physical possessions.) Or how we choose to engage in marriage (which is a union founded in possession, bondage, domination, and submission) and see it through despite our disappointments, outside lusts, and yearning for freedom.
To say that "O"'s motivations are not founded and explainable is ludicrous. Deeply search your life for what motivates you to love, lust, work, dream, and trust and therein you will discover why "O" chooses the path she does.
I believe that "O" is the greatest love story ever written. To truly love someone is to do anything in your power to make that person happy. "O" shows Rene her unconditional love for him by fulfilling his desires and obeying his wishes.
With a closed mind, one would not see this.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Sex as spirituality, 4. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Story of O (Taschenbuch)
This novel could as easily be considered a story of spiritual exploration as that of sexual exploits. Every major world religion considers total submission of the self to a higher power to be a prerequisite to true spiritual fulfillment. Although the pretext for the relationship O experiences with Rene is a love affair, as the novel continues, it becomes clear that Rene is indoctrinating O into another type of existence, one in which how these two particular people relate to and feel about each other becomes increasingly secondary. What becomes primary to the student (who eventually surpasses her first teacher) is the belonging, not the identity of the master. Religions have long equated the relationship between mankind and the divine with the relationship between a woman and a man. The early Christian church was frequently referred to as "the Bride of Christ." And, just as a woman was expected to submit her will to her husband and their marriage, so was a Christian required to freely submit his or her will to that of God. O chooses the same kind of submission, just to a different degree, in a different context, but to the same end. She accepts the first, most basic premise of any religion. One must sacrifice the self, relinquish the entire identity, to something greater than the individual before spiritual fulfillment can be attained. As O drifts further away from what people would recognize as a normal existence, she becomes more ecstatic. She has left behind her old life, with its shallow pursuits of romantic attachments, and has devoted herself wholly to the new life she has chosen. She has been converted. Often, people are drawn to a religious organization by a charismatic individual (a preacher or teacher), as O was drawn to her life of submission by Rene. But as those serious about discovering truth eventually transcend the attachment to any one teacher or personality, so did O finally discover that it was a state of submission and ownership that gave her emotional satisfaction and a type of power, without respect to the identity of the owner.

5.0 von 5 Sternen PLEASURE IN PAIN, 20. März 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Story of O (Taschenbuch)
At the innocent and naive age of twelve, I discovered "The Story of 'O'" lying on a dusty shelf in an old bookstore much to the dismay of the bookstore's owner. As soon as the old man warned me that the book was filled with "bad things" and "wasn't appropriate for a young girl of my age" I knew I had to possess it. From the first reading of this intriguing and passionate novel, I knew that my innocence and naivite was no more. And every year since my "sexual awakening" I have read "The Story of 'O'" Even now, 12 years later, I find myself coveting this tale of sexual domination and submission. To some, "O" endures only pain, but it is this very "pain" that she treasures. And after all, isn't pain merely pleasure from a different perspective? Though "O" is offered her freedom on several occasions, she chooses the physical bondage and torture over this freedom-perhaps her release comes from being dominated. Readers will experience an intense intimacy with "O". For aren't we all in some form of psychological, physical, or mental bondage in our lives? "O" teaches us that to accept this bondage is to receive unbountiful pleasure, but to deny our environment is to suffer unnecessarily. Those readers who are not stimulated by this novel are deaf and blind to life (or simply do not understand the novel itself.) I highly encourage you to read this novel. It will change your life and most assuredly alter what you consider pain and pleasure.

1.0 von 5 Sternen YOU PEOPLE ARE ALL SICK!, 1. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Story of O (Taschenbuch)
I can't believe that people consider this trash a classic. This book is demeaning, degrading, and absolutely horrifying, especially to someone who's been in a relationship that, while not as physically corrosive as O's, left indelible emotional scars on the soul. The very fact that O is simply O, instead of having a real identity, shows that Miss Reage, if she is really a woman, is not attempting to show a deeper side to erotica but simply writing a chauvinist-booster. O always wore very anonymous clothes before she entered her prison, and she hardly ever speaks through the book, except to ask for more beatings and sex, tell her lover that she "loves" him, and to once, ONCE, voice herself about something, an "I can't" that she takes back later. What kind of message does this send to men? Yes, okay, control us, we have no problem? How can this book exist in 1998? What is wrong with a society that raves about this kind of pornography? (Of course, The People vs. Larry Flynt was a huge success at the movies, go figure.) I'm sorry, all you weirdos who liked this, but because of my experience in extremely dominant relationships, and those that threatened to turn physically demeaning and not just emotionally demeaning, and that caused all sorts of emotional problems for me, I just can't be an advocate of something like this.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "A change of lifestyle book!" by Chris McDonald., 10. Dezember 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Story of O (Taschenbuch)
I read the Story Of O when I was in my early twenties, ( I'm now 46). It was to change the whole way I thought about myself. Since I was a child I had been fascinated by stories involving war and, more specifically, torture. I looked for that theme wherever I dwelled in fantasy story-telling land. I had always thought of my appetite for pain and suffering (in others, as I am a true dominant) as being sick, depraved, non-conformist(?) evil. Then I read " O " It taught me that pain and pleasure can, and do, exist side by side. That love can, and often should be, physically painful. That: because it is sexually stimulating to whip, or bind, chain and humiliate the one you love it does not mean that you hate them, or wish to somehow make them suffer for pain that you have felt; but rather that you love and trust them enough to share your innermost desires.
I have been fortunate enough to teach the secrets of dominance and submissiveness to the woman I love and we now share that most precious of gifts: Trust. She knows that for every stroke of the whip or crop, there will be a lingering kiss, a breath of passion to quench the fires of stinging pain. All because I read The Story Of O. Thank you Pauline Reage.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fades Off Into The Sunset..., 9. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Story of O (Taschenbuch)
I read "The Story of O" upon the recommendation of a friend of mine and found it very enlightening. I can easily understand why she had the feelings she did for both Rene and Stephen, and why she endured the things she endured for them. It was in her nature, plain and simple. Those who thought it was a violent book obviously do not understand the mindset of the kind of people involved in this lifestyle. Anyone who has read the book should note that O is never, ever held against her will and is free to go whenever she chooses. The same thing goes on around us everyday, although most of us will never be aware of it. It is very fulfilling for those of us who choose to live this way. "The Story of O" could very well be a basic primer for anyone who is interested in learning more. The only problem i found with the book is the ending which just, as i said in the beginning, just fades off into the sunset and is never resolved.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Oh look, she's getting gang raped - *again*, 5. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Story of O (Taschenbuch)
My fantasies tend to be of the very perverse and violent nature, so I was looking forward to reading L'Histoire d'O. I had a long plane ride, and was hoping it would help me while away the house.
Alas, O proved to be boring in the extreme. My thoughts were pretty much "Oh look, she's getting beaten again" and "Oh look, she's getting gang raped again" and "Oh look, she's being sodomized again." How boring. How dull. There was no tension at all in the book, because there was no conflict. O just accepts everything that happens to her. In order for a story to be interesting, there must be some sort of conflict that needs to be resolved. There is none in this novel.
It seems to me that the author tried to get by on the shock value alone, which is not enough in and of itself to make a book worth reading. Plot helps, too.
