The movie hinted that the book told the truth about the abuse she experienced, which it does, but in graphic detail. It’s like reading porn in text and I didn’t enjoy that part. There are glimpses of reflection that describe the cultivation of abuse and how it can easily happen to others.
I like the fact that it’s a perfect example of modern-day sex and human pinda. But I almost feel that the way the book was written was mostly to give a shock value as if you’re given tickets to a freak show. You know it’s wrong, but for some reason you have a bit of entertainment regarding the horrible events she describes.
I have mixed feelings about this book. I think it should have focused more on the psychology behind abuse instead of describing every horrible sexual event she experienced. Also if you love dogs, you will squirm at the events she describes with dogs – disgusting and sad. Kindle Edition Verified Oreal. I remember all the furor that this movie produced. I never saw any of her movies, but I saw the movie made about her ordeal. That movie is what got me interested in reading this book.
The movie doesn’t begin to go into all the graphic horror that she endured at the hands of the man who said he loved her. The movie says she took a polygraph test to prove that her story was true. This book makes no mention of such a test. I believe she felt helpless in the same way that someone who is kidnapped feels helpless. None of the people she should have been able to turn to for help, for example, her parents, were there lovelacs her.
It’s a sad story and very hard to read in places. I’m glad I didn’t read any of the earlier books which she says were lies designed to make money. I wanted to read her book due to her movie coming out. While it seems she led a tragic life, she made some kovelace bad decisions. Overall the writing was ok and she was pretty blunt about some things. That is povelace annoying. All of that should have been taken out because it gives the impression that she is not in control and somebody was trying to convince her to disclose things.
Which they most likely were, but it also made me wonder how much was embellished for the sake of publishing. I like books about real-life people, but this one made me wonder how much was what really happened and how much was exaggerated. Now I understand what all the other reviews were talking about when they said she made some of the stuff up. She presents it that way in the book.
So if it really happened the way it is in the book, it should have had an honest feel to it. One person found this helpful. M Lovelacr This ogdeal The ants, spiders, pill bugs, etc were gone a few days after I put it down!.
The naked truth of the Linda Lovelace story, an abused woman who left her abuser, is powerful stuff
What prompted the interest in this book was seeing the movie Lovelace. If this is true, then Chuck Traynor is worse than a monster. Monster doesn’t begin to describe him. At the moment depraved, insane and inhuman come to mind.
This is the most vile book I have ever read, but I couldn’t put it down.
I read it in less than lihda hours. My heart bled for Linda as I was reading it. No human being should have to go through what she went through. The only thing that bothered me was that she never mentioned going to libda hospital after the beatings.
If Chuck was beating her as badly as she says, you would think that she would have had to go to the hospital at some point and there would be some hospitals records somewhere to corroborate her story.
I’m not saying she was lying. It just seems odd, but I digress. After reading this book, the movie Lovelace was like watching a Disney movie compared to what really happened. That movie barely scratched the lpvelace, but I think Amanda Seyfried did a great job playing her. Before reading this, I thought nothing in my 38 years could linca me anymore. Well this was shocking for me.
Anyway, I think it is worth a read, but be warned it is very graphic! The book details a number of things not shown in Lovelace or it would have been rated XXX.
Some of the reading is difficult because of what Linda endured with her husband. I don’t have the words to describe Linda’s husband. There is an interesting cast of characters in the book that may be a bit surprising to you. I typically read love novels. Some other reviews of the book have been pretty harsh, but it was the time.
I remember it well, and I remember the big deal with all of the X-rated movies coming to the big screen.
