Venus in Furs

Book Info
Author: 
Leopold von Sacher Masoch
Rating: 
7/10

After seeing Jess Franco's movie of the same name, I noticed that this ebook was available for free at Amazon. The book and the movie have nothing to do with each other. This is the story of a man so devoted to a woman that he'd rather be her slave than ever be apart from her. I guess this is where the term masochism comes from? It's not as dirty one might expect. Instead its a surprisingly engaging and well-written tale that is, however, completely unbelievable in its premise.
