I know there's a craze going on right now that was sparked by "Fifty Shades of Grey." I have not read that book, nor do I want to. Knowing that about myself, I probably should have read the book description of this month's BlogHer Book Club selection before signing up to be a reviewer.
This book by Sophie Morgan (not her real name) is supposedly a true story about the author, from an allegedly normal childhood and family, and her journey to realizing her tendencies toward submissiveness. I meant to keep an open mind about this, but I just did not get it. The behavior is abusive, demeaning and cruel. And yet, of all the things she forces herself to do, kissing someone's feet is the ultimate degrading experience?!! I felt like the reader doesn't really get to know the author or any insights into her mind and thoughts. I wondered why she wrote the book, if not to explain behavior that I felt needed explanation. The language is crude and offensive. I know I'm being judgmental, but when you write a book about this, it's open to be judged.
