Book Summary of 3
Maya and Ilan have an unusual marriage: Maya agrees to tolerate Ilan's chronic infidelity as long as she can participate and he will never stray without her. To her surprise, she finds their threesomes as arousing as they are disturbing and, for a while, everything seems fine. But as Maya's writing career takes off and she becomes more independent, Ilan feels threatened, and opts for another kind of sexual experimentation - one that plays on Maya's fear and ultimately threatens her life.
Meanwhile, Maya is drawn into another relationship with a fateful third character. When her new liaison begins to mirror her marriage to Ilan, Maya discovers that her lover, seemingly a stranger, knows far more about her past than she has revealed.
A compelling chronicle of obsession and power, 3 brings new immediacy to a timeless question: what is the greatest sacrifice you would make for love?

I've just finished and 5 stars is the only rating i can even consider.The blurb on the back of the book more or less tells you the storyline, but what it doesn't tell you is this is written in first person POV which makes everything starkly intimate. The writing is lyrical and sparse not over lac...
This book is both beautiful, and disturbing. I will tell you up front that this is definitely not for the faint of heart. Most of the depictions are extremely graphic, which makes the gut-wrenching scenes even more so.There are two central themes here, and they are sex and obsession. The title im...
It's a very nihilistic take on Story of O.The lead character, Maya, was never truly invested in what was going on b/w her husband and her. She just floated along until her husband committed suicide.Yet, even her husband's suicide did not immediately "activate" her "awakening". It takes her to alm...
