Publisher's Summary

If you've ever been curious about where the term "masochism" comes from, you will find it laden in the pages of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's masterpiece, Venus in Furs, for whom the term was named. Drawn in part from his own life experiences, Sacher-Masoch's novel develops an eroticism unlike any other. The book's protagonist, Severin, is so infatuated and obsessed with the object of his desire, Wanda, that he asks to be her slave. Although hesitant at first, Wanda's treatment of Severin becomes more and more depraved, fueling Severin's own desires for cruelty.

    "Great Classic Erotica, Terrible Narration"
    Would you try another book from the authors and/or Patrick Downer?

    Author yes, Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, Voice no Patrick Downer. The short historical intro was very good!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved and hated them all :) The characters were great and terrible at the same time. the writing of this classic is amazing and to prose to die for.


    What didn’t you like about Patrick Downer’s performance?

    Whiny over acted voices. I had to buy a physical copy to make it through the text. this was one of the worse voice acting jobs I have heard. It was accurate and well pronounced but detracted from the story.


    Do you think Venus in Furs needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The author is dead!


    Any additional comments?

    Please rerecord this classic with another narrator and comp it to me over this rough version.

    "stupid and boring."

    this was rediculous. I fast forwarded most of it, then deleted all together. Going from chapter to chapter, story never changed

    "Waste of time"
    What aspect of Patrick Downer’s performance would you have changed?

    It was uncomfortable to listen to well-known celebrity voicing this type of content.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't imagine anyone being entertained by the content here
