Story of O by Pauline Reage
Story of O

Olthia, September 6, 2006

This book has me reeling. It is a horrific yet romantic story of O, a beautiful French photographer and her lover Rene. To demonstrate her love she undergoes sadistic torture and humiliating sexual abuse, all to prove her submission to him and her desire to please him... it speaks metaphorically to any person who has been in love so deeply and without restraint that nothing seems enough to prove its extent. Not for the faint-hearted but definitly a work of immense passion.
