Only a couple downsides: Lisa's tragedy seemed to be almost a minor blip in her life. I can't imagine anyone having that same reaction or thought process in real life. Also, Sir is a bit too perfect, if that's possible. Although, I guess that's part of the magic of this story. Overall, it's a wonderful live story with a twisty twist - I highly recommend this!
The author manages more serious themes such as BDSM, divorce, and abuse in way that is relatable and draw the reader in.
Steamy erotic scenes increase, for the reader, the intimacy of Lisa and Sir's relationship.
A highly compelling, exciting, and unforgettable read.
'Entropy' affected me deeply, and I connected on several levels, save the age part. I'm a long way away from middle-age. For me, Lisa represented a woman who had done her bit, as a wife and mother, and was ready to take control of her life — to define herself on her own terms. Interestingly, she is able to do this by giving (gifting, if you like) control to a Dom (referred to as Sir in the book) she meets on Twitter. As a Twitter-crazy chick - one who has made wonderful friends on the platform, I could relate to the connection shared by Lisa and Sir, in spite of the distance between them. Funny, I also read it in the light of my relationship with my partner, whose attitude is somewhat similar to Sir's. (I even wanted to serve this Sir - if anything is going to make you buy this book, that is it.)
In this book, the author writes beautifully and intelligently about sex, BDSM, and the blurred lines one might encounter in the Life. One question explored by the author is this: Where do we cross the line between consent and abuse (or manipulation, in lighter terms)?
Read this, because it is brilliantly written (even the sex scenes).
Read it because it will introduce you to new concepts, especially in the way that the title is linked to the story.
Read it because it will blow your mind.
Just read it.
You need this in your life.
I swear you do.
Lisa is definitely a flawed heroine. Her life, while seemingly perfect from the outside, is anything but. Loneliness and longing send her looking for something she didn't really know she wanted. What starts out as innocent fun and excitement quickly turns into something much deeper. When she is hit with a series of sometimes improbable trials and tribulations she seems to deal with her pain by exploring a side of her sexuality that excites her and scares her and brings meaning to her life. She seeks comfort through sexual release in a world of BDSM and a dominant submissive relationship.
The subject matter is at times uncomfortable. How far would you go to satisfy your desires? What truly makes you happy? Is it possible to live happily outside of societal norms? Where is that line between pain and desire? Love and fear?
Knowing that this was the author's first novel, I honestly went in with low expectations. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of writing and the depth of the storytelling. Not only does he do a fabulous job at accurately portraying complicated relationships and deeply intimate encounters, the writing is also intelligent and witty. I'm already looking forward to reading what else he has to share.
It's very different and unique from most books I read. Not typical at all, and I found it strangely interesting. So if you want something a little out of the norm, take a chance on this one, but beware you will probably need to get the next book.
