      Female sexuality is often associated with lasciviousness and motherhood than with perversion This is unexplored territory Explaining why she chose female sexual addiction as a subject for her debut novel, Le la Slimani, the French Moroccan author of the Prix Goncourt winning novel Chanson douce translated into English as The Perfect Nanny Lullaby asserted it was the DSK affair and her bewilderment on how such a strong sexual drive can manage to bring someone down, that inspired her to [...]

      It s been a long time since a book has left me bereft of words For reasons unknown to me, I was immediately drawn to this book from the moment I read the synopsis and as soon as I downloaded it I abandoned the book I was previously reading, hell, I abandoned my life, and found myself immersed in this book, finishing it in one sitting Ad le is, seemingly, the contented wife of a surgeon, raising a son that she adores while excelling at her job as a journalist Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, could It [...]

    3. Warwick on said:

      Slimani claims she wrote this novel after being inspired by the Dominique Strauss Kahn scandal, wanting, she said, to look at the phenomenon of sex addiction through a female perspective I m not sure I believe her And even if I did, I m not sure that would be a useful lens through which to examine this book for one thing, I doubt whether Strauss Kahn was really a sex addict, rather than just a sleazy politician comfortable with abusing his power and for another thing, I think in the DSK case Sli [...]

      Rating Disjointedness 1 star Background insights lacking the what, the why, the how, the what for 1 star Seriously No one ever noticed anything Ouch And she never got any illnesses Not even some mild gonorrhea case 1 star While this is an interesting vignette of a nymphomaniac being her sex addicted self, it s not engaging or giving enough background or even an interconnected plot We got a male parade, which is a chore to read, which is probably the way it was intended to be Rating Disjointednes [...]

    6. Agnieszka on said:

      Strangely disturbing read It deals with sex but it s not a porn though it s no use to seek erotic tension either The main protagonist, Adele, is a young woman Rather unfulfilled journalist, mother of little Lucien and devoted wife to her husband, Richard This is her face she shows to the world Adele is addicted to sex Hotel rooms, stairwells, back alleys, restrooms The dirtier and uglier places the better to get what her body wants The young, the old, handsome or revolting, stranger or n Strange [...]

    7. Roman Clodia on said:

      She wants to be a doll in an ogre s garden An enigmatic book that seems to be re writing Madame Bovary with an eye on the paradoxes and conundrums of a modern woman Where Emma Bovary wants life to be as sweepingly lush as the romance novels she s devoured, Adele desires something far complex, something that she and we are hard pressed to identify and delineate Bored of her bourgeois lifestyle, burdened by a doctor husband she doesn t love, a son who demands things of her she find [...]
