When I first opened this book, I was wondering what I had gotten myself into. This Master/Pet relationship was much more extreme than I had ever before been exposed to. This is what I, as a Dominant myself, would have considered a Master/Slave relationship. But after getting into it, I realized that it was like my own previously submissive relationship with my Dominant. Carrie and I were often feeling the same things, thinking similarly, very often. The detail in the sexual scenes made me cry and cringe and giggle and, well, other things were included that I don’t need to make obvious to all of you. There were times where I felt uncomfortable and exclaimed “PEOPLE REALLY DO THAT?!” because I had only previously been exposed to the idea of things in a blog I had read long ago. And then it was over, but I found myself satisfied with the ending, though I was hoping for so much more. I hope that the next book leaves me feeling much more satisfied than this ending did.
Carrie's Story is regarded as one of the finest erotic novels ever written- smart, devastatingly sexy and, at times, shocking, Molly Weatherfield has penned a book that is standing the test of time alongside The Story of O and Justine. in this new era of "BDSM romance," a la 50 Shades of Grey the whips and cuffs are out of the closet and "chateau porn" has given way to mommy porn. Carrie's Story remains at the head of the class, literally.
Imagine the Story of O starring a Berkeley PhD candidate in comparative literature, who moonlights as a bike messenger, with a penchant for irony, self-analysis and as well as anal pleasures. Set in both San Francisco and the more chateau-friendly, Napa Valley, Weatherfield's deliciously decadent novel takes you on a sexually explicit journey into a netherworld of slave auctions, training regimes, enticing "ponies," (people) preening for dressage competitions. Desire runs rampant in this story of uncompromising mastery and irrevocable submission.
