Wonderfully broadening and insightful

The review of Belinda, a book which I must have read 4 or 5 times, is particularly broadening and made me realize why I enjoyed the novel so much. The comments on Exit to Brooklyn are right on the button. (well, they turned it into a comedy to make the bondage more commercally palatable). The Beauty Trilogy I found a bit too detailed in some parts, but Anne Rice's elegant writing style carries it through. When I do reread the three Beauty books, I'll certainly have RisiaSkyes's appraisal in mind. Thanks again for broadening my outlook and making me see more into my favorite stories!

An excellent review...

I'd read Sleeping Beauty so just scanned over that, but I think I may have to find and actually read my copy of "Exit to Eden". You've made it sound very appealing. A nice concise review of Rice's erotica.

Great Review

You actually reviewed all of the Anne Rice books I haven't read, but I will be sure to check them out. I love her writing, and it is nice to see another fan out there giving an honest and well written opinion of her erotic works.

dead on

You actually hit Ann Rice's Erotic novels dead on. Maybe with the exception of Exit to Eden. The movie had nothing in common with that comedic farce that was the movie, except maybe the relationship between the male lead and the female dominatrix that claimed him for "training". Ms. Rice has certainly explored all realms of sexuality in her novels and these erotic novels of hers are no exception. I have read them all and still have the Beauty Trilogy in my collection.

I've always loved those works, and I find it a shame that Anne Rice no longer feels that they are novels she can be proud of. I think Exit to Eden is her most honest piece of literature. Or perhaps I'm biased, as it's my favorite novel of all time. No matter how many times I pick it up, I come away with something new.

Exit to Eden has the burden of being "about" BDSM, even though it isn't. It isn't an instructional manual. I think it probably introduces many readers to the lifestyle, or a peek at the lifestyle, or a peek at the lifestyle as Rice imagines it. No matter. Exit to Eden is a love story and more essentially than that, a story of a woman's journey of self-exploration. Aside from the hot sex, it's not much different in that regard from Eat, Pray, Love.

I'm also less inclined to even put these 5 novels in the same genre. I would argue that Belinda and Exit to Eden belong in their own category...a middle ground, if you will, between the sensual (but not necessarily erotic) vampire and witch tales and the pornographic (and sometimes erotic) Beauty Trilogy. But then, I do have a line in my head on either side of which erotica and porn fall, respectively, both having their place, as I believe, but not being the same creature.

Thank you for posting this. It was an interesting and thoughtful read.
