I don't understand why reviewers are calling this sexual abuse,

I don't understand why reviewers are calling this sexual abuse, rape etc. The book describes a lifestyle that is not led by most. The situation we find O in, is very extraordinary. However we all need to keep in mind that the acts committed are done by consenting adults...

Digital version is sloppy

The spelling errors, editing errors and dropped paragraphs spoiled this digital version. The last pages are missing. Are the nook books even reviewed after scanning them in? The frequent errors took away from my reading enjoyment.

    WHAT????????

    I have to say that this book was so very disappointing. I usually finish a GOOD book in a day. I just couldn't get into it. I kept finding myself putting the book down and struggled to finish it only because I had already purchased it. Pleasure enhanced by pain and total submission is one thing, but what was going on in this story? It was just pain, pain, and you guessed it, more PAIN, both physical and emotional.

    disappointed..

    It seems as if everyone puts so much into this book. That 'story of O' is the story to read. That its good and blah blah..I personal don't think this book was porngraphic at all.I found it kind of boring and short. Maybe it wasnt detailed enough? because at the end I felt lost and cheated. I would not recommend this book to anyone thats looking for something hot and steamy or to have peek into someones elses lifestyle. the book was lacking.

    I sat down with The Story of O with the idea of enjoying some erotic fiction, especially after the light mommy porn that 50 Shades and Bared To Me provided me. And even as far left field the Sleeping Beauty trilogy by Anne Rice was, I enjoyed it (a little blushed) but it was well written. However, I, like the others, felt The Story of O was borderline rape and what creeps must do to the women (young and old) in the sex traffic business. I could only stomach so many pages, trying to give it the benefit of the doubt, before I turned it away. I felt grimy and disgusted. This wasn't about doms enjoying the pain/pleasure of their subs; it was about doms strictly enjoying the pain/torment of their subs, especially with more than one master. I felt the pain, humiliation and the abuse within the first few pages that I wanted to rescue "O" from the monsters she was decieved by. Classic, cult fiction or extreme BDSM, I think I'll pass, thank you. If you are looking for BDSM-style reading, then I would suggest The Story of X by A.J. Molloy in addition to a few other authors.

    Good story / Nook version horrible!

    This was my first Nook e-book purchase. I love the story but the editing in the e-book is totally unacceptable. There are tons of misspelled words, running sentences that don't make sense, and even a bunch of missing pages!!! I had to go to Amazon and buy a paperback just so I could read it. I'll never buy from Nook again.

    Europen

    All I can say is this made me want to cry and puke all at the same time. I wanted to read this because so many other books I have read made a reference to this book. It was a mistake I will not read this again. O is beyond any sub I have read about she want to please her dom so badly that she allows him to do whatever to with no regard to any type of morals.
