"'A rare thing, a pornographic book well written and without a trace of obscenity' - Graham Greene
‘A remarkable piece of work’ - Harold Pinter
A highly literary and imaginative work, the brilliance of whose style leaves one in no doubt whatever of the author's genius...a profoundly disturbing book, as well as a black tour-de-force - Spectator
Here all kinds of terrors await us, but like a baby taking its mother's milk all pains are assuaged. Touched by the magic of love, everything is transformed. Story of O is a deeply moral homily - J.G. Ballard

“Sorry, I just don't get it...”
Possibly the worst book I've read for ages...actually I haven't finished it. I didn't find it erotic; it was more brutal than tantilising. I found the story weak and the plot-line virtually non-existent.
