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.
