Entre ses mains You'll want to scream but you'll be gagged You'll want to cry but you'll be blindfolded You'll want to run away but you'll be tied up You'll have no way of begging me I'll do what I want with you Submission the controversial novel that according to The Sunday Times London sent tremours through the French establishment is bound to leave American readers breathless Sexual obsession domination and dangerous desire drive the story of Élodie a young married Parisian lawyer who finds herself swept up in a cycle of sadomasochistic lust A handsome stranger Élodie meets in court issues her a series of instructions that she feels compelled to follow He introduces her to sex clubs hidden in dark alleys toys that enhance physical pleasure as well as pain and couples whose appetites are as voracious as his What at first seems out of character for Élodie she has a small child at home after all uickly begins to shape her self identity As the violence of their encounters escalates these acts become an addiction she can't bear But how far can Élodie go and how much of her life will she risk in the process This sophisticated and captivating novel exudes the sensuality that only the French can deliver Never has a book infuriated me with a character until this one Elodie is a complete moron this is not a novel about normal subdom relationships The character in this book is mentally ill and needs help If you want to be pissed off and not turned on at all by her pathetic internal pleadings then by all means read this book If you're looking for a sexy novel on subdom culture and relationships then stay the fuck away Where to startFirst of all this is a horrible representation of a BDSM relationship This is supposedly based on real events but I find it likely that's just to get tongues wagging Seeing as I'm highly interested in the BDSM community and am in a BDSM based relationship myself I can say that this is nothing like what a real and healthy relationship is like There is no discussion of safewords and even when Elodie says she doesn't want to follow through with what 'He' says He makes her do it He beats her He humiliates her He whips her so hard she passes out and leaves her tied to a balcony When she says she wants to love Him He beats her Not once does He ask about her well being not once does He truly show that He cares for her While I place the majority of the blame on Him and I hate capitalising it but that's how he He's addressed in the book Elodie the narrator is also partially to blame She doesn't know Him She lets herself get overwhelmed with Him She says she loves Him but it reads like a sick twisted case of Stockholm Syndrome There is not discussion about what she wants what she can do to get out of it and what He wants from her besides a fuck toy Because that's what she is a fuck toyI felt sick while reading this I told my partner that if he even treated me slightly the way that's represented in this book I would take him to court This isn't a relationship This is abuse BDSM is not an abusive relationship BDSM is not rape This is what leads me to believe that this author Marthe Blau knows nothing about real BDSM relationships has no history of it and sees it as one person using another BDSM is not that This book is disgusting That's it How kinkyVery Oh wow is it kinky It is explicit and descriptive detailing many very kinky practices including orgies extreme violence ownership of a sort and exhibitionismvoyeurism How sexyRather It is in short porn As mentioned extremely explicit and detailed The somewhat staccato delivery can be a bit offputting as I found the lack of rhythm and flow impeded my own er flow The plot was also stop start as it focussed for short periods on the sex and then cut back for longer periods to the protagonist's own feelings her job her friends her own thoughts and her loving family home anti sexy as she is a cheater not poly or consensual cuckolding just plain cheating But the language makes up for many halting sins as it is never shy or demure It uses the words you want need to hear which brings you right back into the swing of things How inspiringSubjective I love reading about this stuff but some of the ideas weren't going to be useful to me personally anonymity exhibitionism orgies etc I got some great fantasy fodder out of it but did it inspire me to copy the book Not as such Inspiring of fantasy only for meus How engagingActually not very It's not terrible but I could easily put it down and come back later I liked reading the short chapters in chunks while in bed but as mentioned the long periods of concentration on plot points other than the central relationship really slowed it down in some parts it was actually boring How well executedWell written but to me it was clear it was translated I don't know whether the text was translated into English from French or if the French writer was writing in English but the language came across as slightly stilted and formal Only slightly though and to a certain extent it adds charm to the writing Overall reactionCute little book Nice size handbag sized and adorable cover art Short bus ride length chapters and gloriously explicit language The only real criticism I have of the book as a whole is the undesirable focus on Elodie's feelings friends vanilla experiences and of course the poor family she is cheating on It makes a lovely and wonderfully delicious porn book into a bit of a moral tale If I wanted my porn tinged with melancholy and misery I'd be reading Story of O In short The plot had a little too much depth for your average porn book but from certain angles could be considered to add an element of evil which some readers may prefer Sad ending made it a bit morbid for me personally YMMV CHECK OUT MY OTHER REVIEWS This book describes the life cycle of one woman’s submissive relationship with a dominant man Her relationship with the man isn’t sexual in the conventional sense though she participates in lots of sex and he commands her to engage in various sexual activities It’s a relatively tame and modern variant of the tale told in the famous “The Story of O” written by another Frenchwoman Pauline Réage aka Anne Desclos While “Submission” is like any number of stories of submissive individuals being dominated by a dominant and or sadistic partner it does carve out a uniue space The female lead is a highly regarded lawyer who is married with a family She isn’t on the weak side of some power dynamic ie it’s not a secretary boss or employee employer kind of tale That’s not that different from “Story of O” in which the lead is a successful photographer but it does add complexity to the lead’s motivation It also makes the story’s main uestion a little bit intriguing That uestion being how long can the relationship go on with the demands on her becoming progressively intense re degrading while the intimacy of the relationship isn’t increasing as she’d like This tension builds to a climax at a point where the man momentarily shifts from the cool dominant to an angry abusive It goes without saying that the book contains graphic sexual scenes and won’t be the cup of tea of puritans or those with delicate sensibilities “Submission” is interesting both as a work of erotica and as a psychological sketch There seem to be many books out there that tell similar stories so it’s hard to place this one I wouldn’t call it exceptional in any way and I found “The Story of O” to be intriguing and intense That said while I haven’t read the “50 Shades” books from what I heard about them this one likely surpasses them in terms of writing and the building of characters of verisimilitude That said the “50 Shades” books have obviously been immensely popular for a reason and that reason—near as I can tell—is they tap into a fantasy in which a man who is extraordinary in every way genius billionaire playboy philanthropist with six pack abs falls for a woman who is mediocre in every way because she submits to his will “Submission” won’t scratch that itch The book is short clocking in at a less than 220 pages It does have a discernible plot though it’s character centric A little depth with the lead character and her dominant could be interesting As it is the reader is left to draw many conclusions about the characters’ motivations—which admittedly has its advantages If you know what you are getting into I’d recommend this book
