Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sensual I went into this book liking erotica, but never having read any by Anais Nin. I was pleasently surprised! The ideas she is capable of coming up with are amazing, if not a but perverse sometimes. I couldn't tell if some of the stories were true, or if all just a figment of her imagination. Either way, this was an interesting read. Anais Nin is able to put alot of detail about the smaller things into the stories, without making them become boring or dragged out. With alot of the stories I wish they wouldn't have ended so soon, but that's part of why they are so intriguing, it leaves you wondering about what could have been! Very well written as a whole, and hard to put down. Anyone who appreciates erotica should read Delta of Venus!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seriously Sensual This collection of 15 erotic short stories was very delectable to read! It covered a wide range of sexual proclivities, so I'm sure any reader would find Delta of Venus enjoyable. Some of the topics covered were quite taboo and even a little disturbing; however, the eloquent beauty of the words and the almost poetic flow draws one in enough to keep them reading. The lengths of the stories are varied. The shorter ones are perfect for reading to someone special. *wink wink nudge nudge* I found Delta of Venus to be genuinely erotic. The stories are refreshingly original, and they inspire the imagination of the reader. I often found myself wondering and imagining what happened next for the characters of each story after the story ended. The settings and characters are varied, but all are described in a lush, inviting, and salacious manner. Anais Nin has a way of making the reader long for these fictitious lovers with her sensual words. I would definitely recommend Delta of Venus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tantalizingly Erotic and Fun This is a must read, better than any modern romance novel. Anyone lacking in marital lust should have their partner read this, it is amazing how a woman during her day could write such a piece and not suffer presecution for it. This novel is crude yet sexy and draws the reader into the moments. Definetely not for the faint of heart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good read I was first incited to buy this book when I caught the first 1/2 hour of the movie, which was very erotic, and used such beautifully rich language, that I couldn't wait to read the original book. I had assumed that the book would be an erotic novel. OK, so I was disappointed. But only because my expectations were so high. My main disappointment was that the book is a collection of short stories. Anais Nin is credited with being one of the (if not THE) first American women to write erotica. This is beautiful erotica, written in a woman's style. The dances of romance, of pursuit and capture, and of seduction are all played out in these pages. I am over my initial disappointment, and am thoroughly enjoying the book.
