Without a doubt "The 120 Days of Sodom" is a beautifully written book... only if you can stomach it's content. Enticing though grotesque; picturesque though disturbingly so; this is an exhaustive piece of fiction, most definitely. It provides some sort of enjoyment, and in lack of being able to describe it in a better way... here's a try: after I choked through it, I enjoyed defacing it's pages by shredding them even more. I did however, keep it's introduction and aftermath intact; also it's tattered pages in an ice-cream gallon bucket underneath my bed as a guilty fascination. Though I can no longer read it, I can keep it's pieces in a safe place like keeping it's perverted contents in my mind. And again, though unhealthy, it's simply and purely fascination. As a writer, the Marquis De Sade has accomplished the creation of the most deformed characters known to anyone. "The 120 Days of Sodom" certainly doesn't disappoint in regards to such a statement. Nothing is sacred in this book. All it's innocent individuals are nothing more than disposable cartoon characters, forced to entertain the Four Lords of Sodom as called for. All the young men and women that are kept against their will in the chateau of misery can only expect complete and total humiliation and pain. Anything from turd manias, incest, rape, murder only for the intent of masturbation, the amputation of breasts and serving them as delicacies, sodomy and rape involving beasts and the ingestion of baby fetus happens in this tale; leaving absolutely no one/nothing untainted and/or deformed in some way. I do not recommend this book to anyone. But, at the same time I feel selfish because of it. It's as if I have suddenly acquired some disturbing intelligence that I don't want to share with others. So in order to disclaim any self-centered feelings I have towards this book: read at your own risk, your own disclosure and your own frame of mind. ~Good luck.

A very disturbing tale.  Not for the squeamish.  This book was also made into a disturbing movie that stays true to the books contents.

I saw the movie so had to read the book..yes im somewhat of a sadist in my reading and film choices hah. Anyway..book is very very drawn out..a lot of detail. The old men are portrayed as extremely horny and very sadistic which i suppose is how they are supposed to be portrayed. The prostitutes tales are very interesting..although at one point i decided to stop reading them..just too many. I would like to try reading this book again.
