Introduction tomy american readers. Chapter I. Now this is an episode in a young man's life, and has no realbeginning or ending. I feel now, when my "Three Weeks" is to be launched in a new land,where I have many sympathetic friends, that, owing to themisunderstanding and misrepresentation it received from nearly theentire press and a section of the public in England, I would like tostate my view of its meaning.

The first part of this story--when the romance between Paul and his mystery lady unfolded--was quite interesting. I enjoyed the rather subversive quality of having the woman be the aggressor in the relationship, the one making the gather-ye-rosebuds-while-ye-may speeches. But somewhere along the way, the over-the-top prose and the repetitive nature of the story started to wear on me. Maybe it wasn't a cliche then to have a character stretched seductively on a tiger-skin rug with a rose in her teeth--who knows, maybe Elinor Glyn originated that particular image--but it's not just cliche now, it's pretty hilarious cliche. And the way the heroine was constantly undulating and writhing over the hero began to seem a bit bizarre, although I appreciated that the author was surprisingly frank about the sexual relationship Paul had with his enchantress. I also appreciated that good came out of their love, and not just punishment, as was the case in the more moralistic novels of the time. But overall, I found the book a bit of a slog. Once they were together, and subsequently when the three weeks were over, the novel really dragged for me.

I purchased this book because my mother used to refer to the works of Elinor Glyn. This is the sort of romantic potboiler that used to be read by flashlight under the bedcovers by young girls back in the day. Way back in the day. A little bit of spice, but nothing explicit. (Think "The Sheik") I'm very appreciative that through Amazon Kindle some of the older novels are now available to contemporary readers. This one made me smile, but one will be enough.

I was curious to read this book (as this was when it was released in early 1900s a scandalous book); but I am not sure if this edition consolidated pieces but the plot does not flow well. I am familiar with Elinor Glyns' screen plays that featured Clara bow and Rudolph valentino. their were some parts of this book that the writing was good but overall plot didn't seem cohesive. I will read other books of hers but this book wasn't to my liking. I don't hate it but don't love it.

Once I got to the part where the heroine was rolling around in a purple negligee on a tiger skin ... with a rose clenched in her teeth .... I had to quit reading. No, I'm not kidding. It's really in there ...

You must read this book with the knowledge of the date Miss Elinor wrote this book. Carry yourself back into time; read this book as you would read during her time period.
This is a book best read in the quiet, undisturbed. Take the few hours, lock yourself away on a rainy day, or find a place of complete solitude and read Three Weeks. To much will be lost if you try to read it in any other way. Then find the book Lady by Thomas Tyron....

A young man becomes involved with an older woman and loses her, after becoming intimate and experiencing seeming bliss. He is devastated when she leaves him and can barely function in life. This story went nowhere....disappointment.

In the words of the famous doggerel:

Would you like to sin
With Elinor Glyn
On a tiger skin?
Or would your prefer
To err with her
On some other fur?

This is just a plain guilty pleasure from the Elder Days, and proves that a Canadian authoress can be racy. I'm glad to have hunted this particular tiger down on the Amazon.
I recently saw 'It' & wanted to read more by & about Elinor Glyn - I enjoyed this novel even with its old-fashioned, old-world approach - an engaging read that shows how relationships have changed but the 'it takes the right woman to make a real man out of a boy' message is still in films to day.
