I almost didn't post this book because it contains writing of incest and from my understanding beastiality as well.
Just a warning for those who may be offended by such. I couldn't finish it but to each his own!

Yikes...you've got to be open to everything...and I mean everything...to really appreciate this. Just keep an open mind and understand what Nin was attempting here. It's racy and steamy and I promise will give you great Book Club talk!

Very interesting erotica from Anais Nin. I say "interesting" because at times it is a bit over the top, even disgusting, but overall very hot.

A beautiful book. This was my first Anais Nin book and it won't be my last. I didn't like some of the stories, but I loved others. Not for the faint of heart. I look forword to delving deeper into the stories and diaries of Anais Nin. Exceptional.

Anais Nin is a goddess of words. The content is provocative, and intriguing. And the prose are lyrical and enthralling. A brilliant read.

The content generally seems to have an dark undercurrent. It's a fast read but not overly enjoyable.

Soft-core eroticasort of. Sort of a puzzle, she most often uses the word sex to describe the female pudenda, infrequently using a clinical term, occasionally using the more crass Latin derivative. These are a set of loosely related stories that range from merely provocative to almost lewd: somewhere between Erica Jong and De Sade.
