The final chapters of the Story of O were not originally published. Jan 08, Ruth Coleman rated it really liked it. Apr 07, Ali rated it did not like it. Some paragraphs I read were accompanied by a disgusted cringe on my eighteen year old face. For those in the ‘lifestyle’ this is one of those books that has great meaning and is l an integral part of stofy modern history where literature is concerned. Coming from the 50’s this book seems pretty daring.

Bisogna perderci tempo, bis L’ho divorato in 40 minuti. The story of a beautiful Parisian fashion photographer who, out of love for her man, is willingly blindfolded, chained, whipped, branded, pierced, and taken by many men in all ways, O is one of the all-time great classics of erotic literature and Crepax’ adaptation stands equally as one the great classics of erotic comics.

Sep 15, Giulia Comerio rated it really liked it. She’s enjoying it, of course, and the cartoons are a delight. This is not to say that I am attacking the entire erotic literary business and all, I am a big fan of Anais Nin and have thoroughly enjoyed her books, however The Story of O is pathetic, abusive, and not the least bit entertaining.


The Story of O: A Graphic Novel

At first it is hard sotry accept that any woman would consent to such abuse and subjugation, and I was waiting for the turning point where O comes to her senses and realises she is being used like a whore by stoory pimp. It helps to know that the book was apparently written by a woman who wrote BDSM type stories for her boyfriend who wanted such a relationship with her. Jun 23, Kristen rated it liked it.

Ultimately it was boring and I wouldn’t recommend it. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

It is disturbing and confusing. Reading it is no less than a psychological rape.

The Story Of O

The story ends spoiler comingwhere we see that O has become the ultimate sex object, in a literal sense. Book ratings by Goodreads. Two adaptations of erotic characters into comic strip form. Sep 06, Sharon Walker rated it it was ok.

The Story Of O : Guido Crepax :

I can oof why it was banned, as it has highly questionable content Eurotica started with this book and sold tens of thousands of copies in a multi-volume edition. Sure, I get the concept of total submission, but there was never any respect given to O as a submissive. The art wasn’t bad, but it certainly wasn’t a style that I can fully appreciate. I found it disturbing. The narrator completely drew me in to the mind and emotions of “O”, as she teIls the story from “O”s point of view.

It lets readers see that there’s not just one dynamic, but many. It drove me that crazy. It is overrated, silly, and inhumane. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. The idea of letting the mind go completely quiet seems While the story was well written, it seems near unbelievable that an educated, beautiful woman would let herself be just an objectified sex slave being completely used by random men for the sake of the love of another man.


The Story of O: A Graphic Novel by Guido Crepax

Being a woman herself, I don’t know what the hell Anne Desclos was thinking as she wrote this. Miquelet rated it it was amazing Oct 12, Aug 21, littlelaura rated it did not like it. I don’t crdpax if it’s because of bad translation or the style of the writting, but I found this book is boring and exploiting violence too much. Much more true to the subculture than Fifty Shades. I found this dark tale fascinating as well as titillating. Yes, O is debased and beaten, but it’s clear that she takes pleasure from it and she is reminded over and over again that she can choose to leave.

Would this woman truly feel she had no self worth as to sink so far into crdpax depth of depravity? The Best Books of I may have missed something by finishing about halfway though, but I doubt it. It’s just not that simple. At first it is hard to accept that any woman would conse I found this dark tale fascinating as well as titillating. I can’t say I’m happy to have read this, but I can appreciate reading it for its place in history.
