Welcome to the Naked Reader Book Club!

Carrie's Story
An Erotic S/M Novel

by Molly Weatherfield


"I had been Jonathan's slave for about a year when he told me he wanted to sell me at an auction. I wasn't in any condition to respond when he told me this..."

So begins Carrie's tale of uncompromising sexual adventure. Imagine the Story of O starring a Berkeley PhD in comparative lit (who moonlights as a bike messenger) with a penchant for irony, self-analysis, and anal sex. Set in San Francisco and the Napa Valley, Carrie's Story takes the reader on a sexually explicit journey into a netherworld of slave auctions, training regimes, and human "ponies" preening for dressage competitions.

******

Molly Weatherfield's S/M novel Carrie's Story has become a classic erotic tale, often compared to The Story of O and Anne Rice's Beauty trilogy. Readers and aficionados of sadomasochistic literature frequently list Carrie's Story as one of the most original, intelligent and authentic novels ever written on the subject. Susie Bright calls Molly Weatherfield, ""My favorite neo-Victorian erotic romance writer..."

What is it about Carrie's Story that makes it such a standout in the genre? What is the appeal of S/M fiction from the submissive's perspective? Is there such a thing as an authentic S/M story when experience and sexuality is so personal and individual?

If this is the first erotic novel you've read, what did you think? Was it more or less enjoyable than the erotica anthologies we've been discussing in recent months? Were you able to identify with Carrie better because of the length of the story?

As always, everyone is welcome to join in the discussion, whether you've read the book or not! If you are curious about S/M fiction or an expert on the genre, come by for a fun and lively chat that is sure to leave you with a list of must-read books and a smile on your face!

I loved this book, and I found it much more enjoyable than the anthologies.
What I liked so much about this book was actually the brevity. I'm a huge fan of the Beauty trilogy, and in a way this reminded me of a 'modern' version of Beauty. HOWEVER, those stories are long, complex, and rather drawn out. I loved the 'crisp' feeling of Weatherfield's storytelling.

I haven't read the book yet, it is on my to do list. I've read reviews on it and the interview and it has my interest caught. Sounds like a book I would enjoy reading.

Hi all you early birds! Welcome back to the Naked Reader Book Club and hello to our new guests!

Tonight's discussion is about Molly Weatherfield's wonderful S/M novel Carrie's Story. Molly might be joining us for at least part of the discussion, as well!

So... who read the book and who wants to kick off the discussion about Carrie, Jonathan and their particular brand of S/M?

Hi, all! I'll be back and forth a bit as well - I'm on toddler patrol tonight. Also, if I suddenly leave, it's because we've lost power/internet...we're under a tornado watch and we've had power interruptions a couple of times.

Looking forward to the discussion as well!

Oh, that would be awesome!

I have to say, I haven't enjoyed a novel like this in a long time. It's one of the few I've read where I was thinking about it a lot afterwards. I really, really liked it
