by Pauline Réage (Author), Guido Crepax (Illustrator). This novel, sexually explicit without being crude, is indeed the story of O, a woman whose love for a man leads her to increasingly submissive behavior - allowing herself to be sexually used, violently beaten, and physically mutilated, which releases her independence of thought, and eventually causes her to abandon her individual identity. As O's submission deepens and becomes more extreme, the novel simultaneously deepens its thematic explorations of the relationship between surrender and freedom, the nature and demands of love, and the spiritual aspects of sexual desire.

The final chapters of the Story of O were not originally published. I don't think Reage understands the difference between love and obsession. I also think all her characters have mental diseases. It was only 10 years later that they were published separately in "Return to the Chateau". And I just think it's a bad idea to write paragraphs that are pages long.

Pauline Reage writes very well, the book is captivating and the dive into the mind of our lead character is fascinating. I wouldn't be surprised if the author has some psychology study in her history. Before Fifty Shades of Grey, The Secretary or The Piano Teacher, Pauline Reage, had the guts to write about a taboo subject from the perspective of love and the complete and utter surrender of one's complete self to the person they love.

Guido Crepax, born in Milan in 1933, was one for the founding artists of the legendary comics for adults magazine Linus and became a pioneer in showing comics could be an art form for any age. His staccato method of page breakdowns is a signature element of his work that has influenced many artists the world over. The true identity of Pauline Reage was finally revealed, along with her full story, in a New Yorker article which appeared in 1994.

The Story Of O. An erotic novel published in 1954 by French author Anne Desclos under the pen name Pauline Réage, and published in French by Jean-Jacques Pauvert. Desclos did not reveal herself as the author for forty years after the initial publication

The Story Of O. Desclos did not reveal herself as the author for forty years after the initial publication. Desclos claims she wrote the novel as a series of love letters to her lover Jean Paulhan, who had admired the work of the Marquis de Sade.

Story of O is one of these and starred a nineteen year old girl who was set upon rebelling against her high society family . Finally, a film, The Story of O, was made in 1975 by director Just Jaeckin.

Story of O is one of these and starred a nineteen year old girl who was set upon rebelling against her high society family by appearing in Anger’s movie. Permission to film Histoire d’O had been granted by both Jean Jacques Pauvert and ‘Pauline Reage’ who had requested, as long as it’s like a private thing, for a few people. It is a much maligned but wholly praise worthy film version of the Réage novel with Bond-girl Corrine Clery suffering at the hands of her ‘lovers’.

The great Italian erotic comics artist Crepax then adapted it into comics in the mid-seventies. Eurotica started with this book and sold tens of thousands of copies is a multi-volume edition. 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’s adaptation stands equally as one of the greatest classics of erotic comics.

This is not the book I originally Read. Since the book was banned I think they changed a lot of things. The ending is not what I have .

Painful in so many ways. I read it after reading the first "50 Shades" book (a horribly written, redundant, watered down version of "Story of O") because I was curious to know if the subject matter could be presented in a more mature way. It certainly was in this book. I found myself cringing and ultimately horribly depressed by the character's decisions. Good writing elicits strong responses, and this one had me responding strongly.

The story ends abruptly. A note saying the ending was "suppressed" is printed at the bottom of the page. it also says there exists two endings. What a waste of time and money to read something, just to have to imagine the ending.

Synopsis:

This novel, sexually explicit without being crude, is indeed the story of O, a woman whose love for a man leads her to increasingly submissive behavior - allowing herself to be sexually used, violently beaten, and physically mutilated, which releases her independence of thought, and eventually causes her to abandon her individual identity. As O's submission deepens and becomes more extreme, the novel simultaneously deepens its thematic explorations of the relationship between surrender and freedom, the nature and demands of love, and the spiritual aspects of sexual desire.

The Story of O begins as O is taken by Rene, referred to repeatedly as "her lover", to an isolated chateau in the French countryside, where she is ritualistically and repeatedly subjected to the constant, at times violent, sexual desires of the men there. She is, she is told, being trained in the way of submission, learning how to dress, behave, and react in total sexual obedience as a manifestation of her love for her lover, her trust in him, and her faith that he loves her in return. Over the painful course of several weeks, O is trained physically, mentally, emotionally, sexually, and spiritually in the ways of surrender. Rene eventually returns, tells O that she is to be taken back to their home, and prepares to leave with her. As they go, O is presented with a ring made of iron lined with gold, which she is to wear constantly as a signal to her, to her lover, and to anyone (male or female) who understands the life and teachings of the chateau, that she is sexually available.

Upon returning to her life in Paris, O finds herself transformed. Not only does she dress differently (in a much more sexually available fashion), her colleagues at the fashion magazine where she works as a photographer comment on the change in her attitude and presence - she seems, to them, to be calmer and more peaceful. At the same time, however, O is thrown into a sexually charged turmoil over Jacqueline, a beautiful model who, in O's eyes, may or may not be flirting with her. One day, O is surprised and shocked to discover that Rene intends to share her with a man who is, in many ways, an older brother to him - Sir Stephen, a British businessman and aristocrat. Sir Stephen, O soon realizes, is to be her sole master - Rene, out of respect for him, cedes more and more sexual and physical control of O. For her part, O is at first determined to remain as emotionally faithful as she can to Rene. As time goes on, however, O becomes more and more deeply devoted to Sir Stephen, coming to think of the brutal way he treats her as a sign of her worthiness to be cared for. Eventually, Sir Stephen takes O to meet Anne-Marie, the woman who, O learns, will arrange for Sir Stephen to mark her with the ultimate sign of that worth: branding with a hot iron.

Following her acceptance of Sir Stephen's brand, O returns to her life in Paris where she is told by Sir Stephen to do whatever it takes to bring Jacqueline under his control; the goal of which, he says, is to get Jacqueline to the chateau. At first, O refuses, having fallen in love with Jacqueline herself. Later, however, when she sees the merciless way Jacqueline treats Rene (who has fallen in love with her) and when she (O) also realizes that her devotion to Sir Stephen is now so complete that she will do anything in order to please him, O manipulates Jacqueline into at least considering a trip to the chateau. O also becomes involved with Jacqueline's half-sister Natalie, who seems much more eager than her sister to follow O's path. Just what that path involves is made clear to Natalie when O, following the directions of Sir Stephen, is put on as a nude, silent, sexually titillating display at a party. The action of the novel concludes here, but an epilogue reveals that upon returning to the chateau, O was abandoned by Sir Stephen. The epilogue also suggests that there is an alternate ending to this story - that upon learning that Sir Stephen was to leave her, she begged to be allowed to die rather than left alone. Sir Stephen, narration reveals, gave his permission.

Opinion: The author gets a little tedious with over attention to detail so some pages pass slowly but the plot moves along quickly. Some readers may be repulsed by the subject material so please know before buying that this is the story of a "vanilla" being converted into a slave.

I have read this book many times over the years. I have a habit of lending it out and not getting it back so I decided to add it to my kindle library. Pauline Reage writes very well, the book is captivating and the dive into the mind of our lead character is fascinating. I wouldn't be surprised if the author has some psychology study in her history.

Before Fifty Shades of Grey, The Secretary or The Piano Teacher, Pauline Reage, had the guts to write about a taboo subject from the perspective of love and the complete and utter surrender of one's complete self to the person they love. Not filthy, not smut, but a believable dive into the mind of master and slave, love and obedience (please know I mean this only from the main character's point of view) and the sacrifice of giving all or too much and losing yourself in the process. I always recommend this to anyone who shows the slightest bit of interest in pondering why people do what they do in relationships, whether it be psychological or physical abuse (pleasure), however you choose to view it. I'm not one to judge just a curious observer to the possibility that my ideas are no better or worse than those of anyone else so long as all participants are willing players in the game.

Great read, every time for more than 20 years. Well-written, captivating, interesting, original and intriguing. I think I like it.

Thank God for "Story of O" loooooooong before "50 Shades" became the laughing stock of the BDSM community. O possesses all the beauty and heart of the ideal sub/bottom and transitions into her different relationships with a certain finesse. It's the book you end up loaning away again and again to spread the good word...and clear up the residual stupidity and Disney one-liners left over from "50 Shades".

So dark. So weird. So delicious. So, so French. This is erotica, not erotic romance. It's sinister and strange and shocking, exactly what I want erotica to be.
A classic D/s novel which I have read several times over the past forty years. Still as entertaining today as when I first read it.
