    "Δεν μπορεί κανείς να φανταστεί σε ποιο βαθμό, ο άνθρωπος τα ποικίλλει[τα πάθη], όταν φλογιστεί η φαντασία του. Οι διαφορές ανάμεσά τους, υπέρμετρες σ’ όλες τις άλλες τους μανίες, σ’ όλες τις άλλες τους πράξεις, μεγαλώνουν ακόμη πιο πολύ. Όποιος μπορ [...]

    Zelmire is an exceptionally beautiful name. It’s a shame I’d never be able to bestow it on my daughter for fear of her asking someday where I got the idea

    You can buy this 2009 dramedy used from THE for as low as $1.65! You may be saying "What a deal! But what is it all about?" Well, I'll tell you! LOL!This is the story of a boy who works for a successful greeting card company. One day, his boss hires a new assistant named Sodom who, in typical MPDG fashion, has decided that she doesn't believe in love anymore, and that Frank Zappa's classic song Any Way the Wind Blows is her life philosophy, because she likes subversive Psychedelic Rock and sure [...]

    ***3" FUCKED UP x's INFINITY " STARS***Marquis De Sade described his novel as "the most impure tale that has ever been told since our world began". . I know I've said this numerous times but I've never meant it more than I do right now. THIS. STORY . IST. FOR. EVERYONE. It's obnoxiously repetitive, gruesome beyond belief, and just plain disgusting. With that said, the authors imagination is disturbingly fascinating and surprisingly comical **don't judge me!** De Sage managed to make me gag, chuc [...]

    I have to say that when I say this book was an amazing read, I am attempting to indicate that I was amazed in the real sense of the word - I was astounded by the gravity of the text I was engulfed in; darkly enthralled by the sheer disgust I felt. I have never in my life been more horrified and strangely captivated by a book and although it was not a pleasure read I feel it was an important book to explore, although not one I would rush to read again.

  • Anthony Gramuglia

    I am not a prude. I am not the type of person who will hesitate from delving into works others might find dark. One of my favorite novels is the Exorcist, commonly regarded as one of the most terrifying books ever written. I have pictures on the push-pin board in front of me while I write this containing images from Silent Hill, Audition, and other really gruesome stuffof course, next to that I have pictures from It's a Wonderful Life and Aladdin, but that's not the point! Point is, I have no is [...]

  • Emily May

    Well, what's to like? The part where a grown man (view spoiler)[shoots his load over a "little girl's" face? Or the bits where people urinate on each other? And those are the nicer parts. (hide spoiler)]

  • David Acevedo

    One of the things that I like most about good literature is its ability to break the confines of conventionalism. Literature, in that sense, is tantamount to being a libertine. This novel takes the reader to the darkest of the darkest corners of possible, degrading, violent, scatological behaviour. And yet, the fact that it creates a certain fascination that will not allow the reader to halt his or her reading the text, is an achievement in itself. The 120 Days of Sodom is a voyage of cruelty, t [...]

  • Deniz Balcı

    'Sodom'un 120 Günü' birçok kez okuduğum kitaplardan bir tanesi. Yayınevinin tam metni, 200.yılı şerefine yayımlayacağını öğrendiğimde bir kere daha okuma kararını vermiş, uygun bir zamanı gözetmiştim. Sadizmin babası olarak anılan M Sade'ın eserlerini böyle kısa bir yorumda anlatmak ne yazık ki pek mümkün değil. Zira kitapların içeriği ne kadar sert ve aykırı olursa olsun, Sade her daim alttan altta felsefi sorgulamalar içindedir. Ben şahsım adına bunları [...]

    I must confess, even as a very avid consumer of literature, I have never before been compelled to actually write a book review – this one did.This book explores the absolute depths of human corruption, and is the most depraved piece of text I have ever read. Unlike many of the reviewers here, I endured the whole, and reached the end – day 120. This sordid 450 page tome is divided across four stages or ‘passions’ equating to the level of depravity the libertines are allowed to explore: on [...]

    Okay. Good lord. Where the hell do I start.I hesitated before reading this book because I despise the concept of Libertinism and saw myself throwing my iphone across the room. I do like Sade's views on homosexuality and women's sexual freedom. But the rest of his work is just a clusterfuck of coprophagia, pedophilia, homocide, incest, sodomy, torture, sacriligion, disembowling, rape, orgies, spilled seed and horribleness.With that being said, I read both 120 Days of Sodom and La Philosophie dans [...]

  • Sofia Rodriguez

    I honestly don't know if I can finish this book. I was recommended this book after reading "American Psycho". I was looking for something that would feed my craving for a gore fest thriller. I don't know what this is. The first couple of pages left me questioning my sanity as to if I should finish it (a question that I thought would be a clear NO for someone who was mentally healthy). But I continued. I bought this book about a year ago and am still grappling with how gross and utterly dehumaniz [...]

  • Britt

    A word to those who put this on their to-read list: I'm fairly certain this version of the book is the watered down version. If you want to read the original, there's an e-book version floating around online. That's what I read.Of course I didn't like it. This was the most disgusting book I've ever read, and I doubt there is any as vile out there in the world. For grammar and wording it would receive 5 stars; de Sade is certainly intelligente more to fear him.The book is about four disgusting me [...]

  • Joe

    This book taught me that I am still capable of being offended.120 days of Sodom is the ultimate "boot-camp for the psyche" experience. Rating this monstrosity was extremely difficult for me because, although it was the most atrocious thing I've ever read in my life, it affected me significantly. It did not affect me in a satisfactory way, rather it affected me in the sense that I need to scrape my brain to rid myself of some of the imagery and ideas painted in this sacrilege. Ultimately, I decid [...]

  • Lisa

    **Spoilers ahead**I know, how could this book have spoilers? Well I'm listing most of what the books covers in case anyone is dying of curiosity to read it, and upon getting the gist will maybe decide it's not worth the time.The book covers incest, pedophilia, shit (more than anything else, shit), vomit, piss, sodomy, rape, gang rape, whipping, bondage, forced orgasms, humiliation, prostitution, kidnapping, burning, dressing up like animals, bone breaking, bestiality, drugging/poisoning, sexual [...]

  • Svenja

    Repugnant. Disgusting. Shocking. Extreme. No-one can mix eroticism and horror like Sade, and here he is at his best. Definitely not for the faint of heart. So appalling you can't put it down.

  • Annie

    WARNING: This review talks about some very gruesome things but if you’re considering reading this book, you’d best be ready for gore. First- can we talk about the fact that in the edition I read (Wilder Publications 2008), there’s an amazing offense warning on it? Why is it amazing, you ask? Thanks for playing. Because it reads as follows:“This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with their [...]

  • Mizuki

    What should I say? Oh yes I bought this book, I haven't yet read to the end. But it's a thought provoking book, and Marquis de Sade's great sense of humor and satire is quite charming.Well, if you don't want to chew through the full 1000 pages of this thick book, at least try Salo or The 120 Days of Sodom!! A "fearsome work of art" it is!

  • Caleb

    this book is fucked up. it is profluent the way true crime is profluent. I would liken it to Butters' (South Park character Butters T. Stoch) "The Adventures of Scrotie McBoogerballs." Only it was written 240 years ago. The only way to really accept this narrative is to think of the main characters, the 4 Lords of Sodom, as cartoon characters. Their primary attributes and motivations and countenances are very cartoonish. The most interesting parts in here were Dulcet's anecdotes. When people rea [...]

  • Amy (Other Amy)

    I decided on pure whim to make a go at this and Justine last year. (They're both on that silly 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list I'm sort of picking off of.) Honestly, I didn't make it past the opening with this. I got to the guy who had (view spoiler)[several inches of filth caked about his nether regions due to hatred of bathing (hide spoiler)]*, gagged, and quit. Didn't even make it to the torture.While researching some banned book issues recently, I came across this from :Beginnin [...]

  • Yomna hosny

    Okay so I labored through the first 100 pages of this book and other than "eww" and "yawn" I don't understand how this is considered "literature" ?? It's not even that well written. It takes a while to get used to the "jargon" (maybe it was just the translation?) and then you have to filter through all the inconsequential annoying details. Seriously, people have been describing their food since waaaay before instagram came around.This probably makes me a horrible person but honestly all I could [...]

  • Kaitlin

    Actually one of the most boring books I've ever read. Well, mostly read. I skimmed some of it. It was that bad. I can't fathom how a book so full of depictions of grotesque and degrading sexual abuse managed to be so dull. After the pushing through the initial revulsion of the premise (it IS repulsive), I found the rest repetitive and unimaginative. The assault scene in Blindness by Saramago, in a few pages and with a fraction of the violence, made me want to vomit. But this? If you want to be p [...]

  • Ashlee

    I was pleasantly surprised.For one, I wasn't nearly as disturbed and disgusted as I was expecting to be (although, to be fair, I had heard many things about how horrid it was. How anyone can be shocked when there's such a to-do about something, I don't know.)For two, it is by far the most interesting book I have ever read. Everything about it was interesting: the narrator, the kinks and fetishes, the discussions that the characters had, the word choice, the fact that it's a rough draft (and even [...]

  • Lucy

    I have no idea was star rating to give this so for now I'm leaving it starlessThis was the most disgusting, disturbing book I have ever read. This is not erotica, it's a horrorshow. Seriously, this book is nasty and not the good kind of nasty. I am totally fascinated by the author and his life so god help me I might even read some more of his work.

  • Gavin Armour

    Eigentlich ist es ein Fehler, einzelne Werke DeSades zu bewerten, es ist das Gesamtwerk, das sein Schaffen wichtig macht. Vier Sterne sind deshalb so etwas wie ein Kompromiß: Will man DIE 120 TAGE VON SODOM als Buch/Roman beurteilen, käme man wahrscheinlich auf maximal 2 Sterne, da es schlichtweg langweilig ist. Kaum Handlung, null Spannung, eine Aneinanderreihung von Perversitäten und Ekligkeiten ohne dramturgischen Aufbau usw. Doch das wäre ein fataler Fehler, da DeSades Werk ein philosoph [...]

  • Joe Thompson

    It’s very hard to know where to start. Obviously this is not a book for the feint-hearted, and I would find it hard to recommend to anyone. However, there are important aspects to it, even if they do get somewhat lost in the increasingly repetitive violence and general unpleasantness.There has been some really vitriolic criticism of this book, and I can understand why. But the novel is deeply allegorical, and it is important to see this book not just as a fictional story but as a social critiq [...]

  • Šarlo

    Sade's life-work is a systematic destruction of church-imposed values, symbol against symbol. His work holds no pretense / birthright to a sacred value (despite being historically and culturally invaluable), determined to act itself out objectively, purely, mathematically, like a law of nature, i.e. an instinctive, yet intelligent, utterly human revolt against opressive control. From one angle (that we would probably call terroristic by modern standards), it is the sort of self-negating material [...]

  • Louize

    On my first attempt to join our GR monthly group discussion, I read this book. Truth be told, I did not finish reading this. I went through half of it, or so, then gave up. That’s okay, go ahead, and call me a prude; but I cannot force myself to go on. This book is perverted to a ridiculous point I felt like I am being polluted from the inside; a moral vacuum of some sort. There are things that may stay with me for a long while, though.It begins with 4 high-classed libertine males who are seek [...]
