It is important to go into Story of O
aware of the intense level of surrender and submission that the main character will experience; for some this is extremely hard to digest, and thus will make it a difficult read. The story was both haunting and intriguing to me—following a character so lost in her love, and so willing to give anything to show it. What moved me most was the character's voice throughout, and I found myself reading in a sort of erotic cloud that was hard to break from because it was so entrancing, even when I did squirm and flinch at what she experiences. The ending (missing chapter?) is unfortunately too abrupt, but the passion and surrender exhibited by O is a voice you'll never forget.
