It's an interesting story of a woman who became one of the most known sex educators in the world. While it did not fully captivate me, I was still left wanting to know more, not only about her, but also about other people in her life, and her relationships with them. After the long excursion into the origins of both sides of her family, the chapters often seemed like teasers, only skimming on the surface of the story with the promise of something deeper, that unfortunately was left out to allow another interesting part to unfold. I have a feeling that I would enjoy a slower paced, more in depth look into Susie's life even more.
One of the big pluses of the Audible edition is the interview that was added at the end, that spiced up the whole thing and added some more interesting details, making me wish that the author would elaborate on her life even more.
Susie Bright is one of the best narrators that I had the pleasure to listen to.
I have several erotica collections, and this is my favorite: bold, unpredictable, and dealing with very, very risky territory (let me give you a hint: the theme is "youth"). From beginning (a retelling of the Genesis myth) to end (a delectable feminist's nightmare), this volume packs more controversy than you thought you would be able to find in a single volume. It made me a fan of the Best American Erotica series. You will be aroused and shocked-and shocked to be aroused. Go straight to Dennis Cooper's excerpt from The Sluts and Trebor Healey's "The Pancake Circus" and you will understand what pushing the limits means.
