Definately something to treasure.

Cold, smooth walls you are rammed against. Or are we still forced to hide our animalistic tendencies more so than man, conforming to some draconian myth what a woman is? Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. That makes it even more difficult to take, though of the two books, I liked With My Body better, at least I felt more emotion for the nameless heroine in that book.

She has discovered a forgotten Elizabethan manuscript that dares to speak of what women truly desire, and inspired by its revelations, she tastes for the first time the intoxicating power of knowing what she wants and how to get it. But the diary reveals a secret self, one who’s discovered that her new marriage contains mysteries of its own. They have complexity and nuance which ring true. OK, so I should have known from the blurb.

Born in Wollongong, Australia, she now lives in London.

Dare I say that many people, for many years, who may be women, who may be married, who may live in suburbia have had the ability to shop fre I read this book because I was interested by all the hoop-la about the author wanting to remain anonymous and the media hunt to expose her identity Her work has been internationally critically acclaimed and translated into many languages.


Jul 20, Peppermintyrose rated it did not like it. There’s a lot more going on hemmell This is an ambitious and affecting novel and I don’t know how I missed all the hype about it when it first came out. From that moment on Muito sinceramente nem sei o que dizer acerca deste livro.

Things are good, he is quickly learning but soon he wants more, he wrecks things, this is meant to be a second life, nothing more. I was quite surprised to see this in the Daily Mail’s list of 30 most titillating books of all time today. I think it is a little too wild and out there so that kind of bummed me out, and the strange “Elizabethan” quotes thrown into the the book made me roll my eyes every single time. Your name spoken aloud just before he comes.

I didn’t really find the structure of this book that appealing. At the end, we learn that she also gave the impression of taking her baby son probably her husband’s, not her lover’s with her in death.

That could be another reason I don’t fully understand how much love could be there or how great of a wife she nijki really be. All of that adds up to a presumably good read. Very quickly, the woman tells of her dissatisfaction with her brand new marriage. However, there is one sexual reference that I didn’t like nor did I understand it’s point within the book, and Bemmell doubt that many if any women would be able to empathize with this part of the story.

For the love of plot, woman, why on earth would the police close the case? Discovering and then re-discovering identity in the face of and in reaction to other people’s expectations.

But that’s not what happened. She was an effervescent woman looking for something more, that elusive high that kept the bar being raised so much after every encounter. This type of writing technique would not be easy to pull off but desspida did it wonderfully. I was emotionally affected when the main character was, at least until I started hating her, hahaha. It’s extreme in places, but there is a truth in the prose. I read this, while I had time to waste, and before it was tossed into a skip.


Lots of “sexy sex” I imagined.

A woman finds her voice and leaves behind a book of lessons. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. It would be more plausible if she faked a jump from a cross-channel ferry, but even so, eventual recovery of a body is likely.

The Bride Stripped Bare

It’s the great novel of female self-discovery she’s been working on, forwarded to a publisher by her mother, a year after a ‘suicide’ which looks a lot like a thinly-disguised child kidnapping. I just get more and more frustrated with the heroine. She is The best second person narrative I have read, ever! To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign depsida.

She wants sex on her own terms and finds herself giving lessons to an inexperienced man. Sim, gemmll nem o final eu fiquei a entender muito bem. But in the areas that really count for something, it uses brazen sex to shock and blind the reader to the fact that it has absolutely nothing to reveal about personal responsibility, relationships, love, marriage,and growth.
