This book is a must-read for anyone who loved The Story of O. It takes O's character down paths that couldn't be predicted by where we last left her, and it gives the reader an in-depth and compellingly sexy look into a world that was only really glimpsed previously.
If Story of O represents the best in erotic fiction, Return to the Chateau represents the most mediocre of the genre. It may be a sequel to Story of O in plot, but it is a far cry from the original. Where O's plot flowed, Return to the Chateau stumbles. Where O captivated, Chateau bores. At the end of the day, I felt this to be little more than a morality tale of what happens to wanton women who pursue their desires rather than live a life of proper chastity.
This book was certainly a wonderful read. It was compelling, and sucked me in like a vacuum. I couldn't put it down until I had finished, which didn't take very long. I was a tad disappointed in the lack of sensual detail during "scenes". I had hoped for something a little more erotically intense.
