Publisher's Summary

Before we go any further, let's get this out of the way. I want you to do three things for me.

One. Do not be offended by anything you read beyond this point.

Two. Leave your inhibitions at the door.

Three, and most important. Everything you see and hear from now on must remain between us....

Catherine, a film student whose sexuality has been recently stirred, finds herself drawn into a secret club where the world's most powerful people meet to explore their deepest, often darkest sexual fantasies. But even as these new experiences open intense new pleasures for Catherine, they also threaten everything she holds dear.

Let Sasha Grey take you inside a private, high-profile sex society where anything and everything can happen.

A little weird

A little astonishing, a little shocking, a little boring even. I could have done without, though.

Not so great

Would you try another book from Sasha Grey and/or Sasha Grey?

No I would no. Sasha Grey only mentioned the Juliette Society a few times in passing. It did not seem that the story line was thought out.

Would you ever listen to anything by Sasha Grey again?

Probably not. There was no depth to the story. I would not anticipate her stories would improve based on how poorly this one was written.

How could the performance have been better?

The story could have been thought out better. It seemed very repetitive.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

This book sparked absolutely no reaction in maybe. Well maybe boredom. I would expect a former porn star to be able to write a better book about sexual escapades.

Has Sasha Grey lost her passion or sex?

What disappointed you about The Juliette Society?

Everything. The story was incoherent and the main character was insufferable. The titular society barely even shows up and the sex is so clinical and uninspired that it makes me wonder is Sasha Grey has lost all passion for the act.

Would you ever listen to anything by Sasha Grey again?

Narrated by? Sure. Sasha has this abbrasive New York-eque accent that would lend itself to certain characters pretty well. <br/><br/>Written by? No. This book just made me feel sad. If this is what sex and eroticism are like for a pornstar then so much for my day dream of making that my 9-5.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sasha Grey?

Dr. Stephen Hawking? Someone less robotic who knows when a scene requires emotion. Sasha conveys asking a guy for anal sex, asking after a missing friend and discussing the weather in the same dull monotone.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Sadness. Usually a poorly written book that doesn't deliver on the description from the book cover makes me angry but this just gave me such a depressing insight into Sasha Grey's attitude towards sex that I couldn't feel angry.

Any additional comments?

Perhaps I seem to be acting like an armchair psychologist here but I'm not JUDGING Sasha Grey...I'm acting like the main character of this book a pretentious film student who sits around idly psycho-analyzing people.

It's kinda boring and monotone

If a professional voice actor was the narrator it would probably be a lot more entertaining.
