Review: Story of the Eye

Crítica de los usuarios  - Henry Martin - Goodreads

One of the most bizarre books I have ever read, The Story of the Eye kept me torn as I kept turning the pages. Torn whether to repulse or whether to admit excitement. This book was unlike anything I ... Leer comentario completo

Crítica de los usuarios  - Graham Scala - Goodreads

What a thoroughly fucked book. I completely hated the book for the first chapter or two. There was some decent writing that was marred with the clumsy insertion of sexual elements that might ... Leer comentario completo

Review: Story of the Eye

Crítica de los usuarios  - Leo H - Goodreads

Beautifully written, but at several points you will need to put it down to 'come up for air', as it were. Gleefully disturbing, a key text of surrealist literature. It's influence on writers such as JG Ballard and Bret Easton Ellis is obvious. Leer comentario completo

Review: Story of the Eye

Crítica de los usuarios  - Lillian - Goodreads

This is a novel that explores "the dark side of the erotic". He writes with a psychotic intelligence. Refuses to let life alone but must interrogate it, rip at it, and turn it inside out. The most grotesque and animal impulses are served on a plate with eggs, eyeballs, and others. Leer comentario completo

Crítica de los usuarios  - Brianne - Goodreads

This book was extremely hard to rate. On the one hand, the writing is excellent and you get a solid look at the twisted mind of a sexual deviant. On the other hand...it's revolting, and definitely not ... Leer comentario completo

Review: Story of the Eye

Crítica de los usuarios  - Pranaya Rana - Goodreads

This book is pornography. There's no denying that. It doesn't hide its sexuality, instead displays it for all to see. Bataille was writing porn, and I'm very certain he knew it. Along the way, he ... Leer comentario completo

Review: Story of the Eye

Crítica de los usuarios  - Stephen - Goodreads

E-fricken-gad. Those French! I defy anyone to name a book of comparable renown that features the words "jerk off" (or "jerking off", "jerked off", etc.) as are found in such dizzying abundance and ... Leer comentario completo
