This is one of my favorite books of all times. The Marquis never bores you in this book. This book is basically an encyclopedia of erotic monsters and perversions. My favorite character in the book is Minski 'The Hermit of Appenies' he is a Russian cannibal that lives alone in a fortified castle deep in a forest by a pond. He reminded of a mix between the witch in 'Hansel and Gretal' and a more demonic Hannibal Lecter.But there other characters that are just like Minski-such as Cordelli the Italian necrophiliac who abuses his own daughters corpse and another one of my other favorite characters is Madame Durand. She is a sorceress and poisoner. She has the power to raise the dead form the grave and cause disesaes to entine citys. This book is nothing like a Harry Potter book if thats what your thinking. This book is laced with such taboos as feces-eating, bondage, murders of familys, arsons on hospitals and in one scene in the book there is an orgy with an entire family and also an orgy with an entire asylum of loonys. Its a great read. One of Marquis De Sade's best.
This book will open your mind to a totally new universe. This masterpiece was written by a genius.
