REVIEW: The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice

Make it consensual or do not write about it at all, and definitely do not present that as sexy. I said, well, look, try this. Despite my usually high tolerance for kinky stories, I struggled through this book, with my teeth clenched and my fists balled zleeping anger.

The book closes as they are sent across the sea to serve in the palace of the Sultan.

REVIEW: The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice | Reading in Bed

How scandalous for a year old bbeauty read that book, lol! And I was left going, another fucked up character. The Queen sends him off to get raped repeatedly by abusive morons. View all comments. The sexual situations in this book are anything but consensual. The feeling was tormenting and scary and thought provoking I think.

Those dleeping people will have a hard time comprehending that there are many women who have a deep desire to be dominated and there’s even those who have rape fantasies.

A.n.roqeulaure don’t expect this book to be romantic. And, having had worked in a bookstore for many years, I can tell you — lots of people come in to buy these books not really knowing they are erotica. The BDSM life that they lead there is basically a rite of passage for most before they become full noble men and women. I did not heed their warnings because I was too curious. They had the backing of a major mainstream publisher, yes, but the publication, though dignified and beautiful, was relatively quiet.


Certainly no one is killed. It was as if this strange relaxation were softening her all over. Infinite Jest broke my Kobo. She kind of remind me of Judith McNaught novels with added dark side and erotica flavor on it. Now, if you’re into love games and clakming fascinated by mild or not so mild pain in an erotic setting – you’ve got the right book.

Want to Read saving…. Page – end: So, how should I start this review ranting of mine? I love a good smut novel, and not just those PG Danielle Steel novels either. There are always some people objecting to what I do. I could already imagine all that the p A princess is inflicted with a curse. There’s a reason I don’t want to watch movies like “Hostel”, and also a reason why movies about sex trafficking haunt me.

Or perhaps I have not had a relationship with that kind of flavor to it since the 80’s so I associate such attitudes with a time long long ago? Nor does it have anything to do a.roquelaure awakening someone’s sexuality.

I wanted to really delve into intense sensuous pleasure but put a gilded frame around a safe place for the reader from which he or she could go and come with ease. A drinking game with taking a shot every time spanking is mentioned would not last long that is, unless you have truly remarkable alcohol-digesting enzymes and a I want to bleach my brain after reading this.

But I wouldn’t continue Beauty’s story. Moving on, the reason I read this book is merely out of curiosity. Nicholas is moved by the answer and, after a frantic intercourse, confesses to him that he is in love with Tristan. I can’t believe there are 3 more books in this series. Each chapter contains a delicious sex scene, and most are GAY! There are very detailed descriptions of physical interaction and response; but the fairy-tale spell is sustained. I do love dark erotica and am currently reading one.


It took me forever to figure out how to rate this book because I couldn’t even figure out how I felt about it when I finished. Am I supposed to be so hot and bothered from reading this so that I don’t notice elementary mistakes? It’s been touted as great BDSM fic, an erotic fairytale and a great read.

Why in the world do people LIKE this book? In the first chapter of the story, Beauty is awakened from her hundred-year sleep by the Prince, not with a kiss, but through copulation, initiating her into a Satyricon beautyy world of sexual adventures.

She felt as if someone were pressing her there, trying to enter her, as if her navel had become a vagina The main character is 15, and it is understood throughout the a.nroquelaure that all the slaves are teenagers and the masters are adults. To me, consent is rooted in the present tense.

So my new eyes with a much stronger perscription glasses spotted that this book is pretty dated.
