    One thought on “The Butcher, The Baker, The Candlestick Maker”

    1. Dear Penthouse Forum. That's how this book should have started out. It was labelled as erotica but pretty sure it should be labeled as fiction and poor life choices. It's the tale of a woman who finds her sexy fun times with her husband non existent so she has an affair with a married man, gets divorced and then sleeps with half of London. I felt sorry for her kids who got used to her parade of lovers. Have as many lovers as you want but think of the children!!! To sum up, not erotica, not even [...]

    2. This book was not as sexy as I had hoped.It's supposedly a true story. The authour has a lot of sex, but not enough of it is described in graphic detail. Most of the book is really about the series of BAD relationships she was in after her divorce. Even when the sex was good, the relationship was usually bad.It kept me occupied for several nights in a row.

    3. A fun frolicsome trek through Suzanne's quests. Light and an easy read. Made me feel like I wanted some of her action too! Much fun :0)

    4. The Butcher, The Baker, The Candlestick Maker was previously published in 2006, and is recently reissued to capitalize on the popularity of EL James's Fifty Shades Of Grey. This one isn't one of the 50,000 spades of copycats, though, as this one is billed as a "memoir" of the author - a 41-year old owner of a PR agency with a freshly slimmed down body and pendulous breasts (her words, not mine) - going through men like water in search of pleasure and more pleasure after her divorce.Well, this on [...]

    5. THE BUTCHER, THE BAKER, THE CANDLESTICK MAKER, by Suzanne Portnoy.The author is absolutely true to her pen name. Mr Roth would be proud of her. The subgenre is the once-popular ‘Confessions of a Rake’ but with the interesting twist that the protagonist is a modern woman who objectifies men just as much as men are accused of doing to women. She ranks her sex partners by the sizes of their equipment, their looks, their oral skills and how well they speak, in that order. Personality comes in a [...]

    6. Öncelikle son zamanlarda çıkan erotik aşk romanlarında çok daha farklı olduğunu söyleyerek okuyacak herkesi uyarmam lazım çünkü kitabın içerisinde aşkın zerresi yok diyebilirim. Aksine bir kadının hayatı boyunca yaşadığı tüm başarısız ilişkileri en gerçek yanlarıyla acımasızca inceliyor ve bunu yaparken gayet basit ve akıcı bir dil kullanılıyor. Kısacası pembe pofidik yatakta dalınacak şirin hayallerden çok uzakİlişkiler üzerinde yapılan analizler ç [...]

    7. Although it was a little difficult to like the protagonist because she is so hard-nosed about her life, or for that matter her lovers, because they were almost mechanical in their attractiveness, it was impossible not to be carried along with her adventures. She sails very close to the wind and is totally shameless in her encounters and the sex she has, but I wonder, could there be a bit more subtlety in the sex. I mean, fucking all day and all night? There wasn't much in the way of sensitivity [...]

    8. Right from the first sentence, I was drawn into this storye author's voice flowed effortlessly throughout. As told in a memoir style, The Butcher, The Baker, The Candlestick Maker is a story with a boldness and erotic edge not many authors can achieve half as well as Ms. Portnoy has in this book. It's honest and blunt, and holds a deep and exploratory concept. At the beginning, I didn't much care for her or many of her choices, but kept reading because Ms. Portnoy has a knack of making each page [...]

    9. This is very different than a typical memoir. We don't get to know much about her day to day life, and get to know quite a bit about just how many men she's hooking up with. At times, it would have been nice to get a bit more detail as some of the incidents seem glossed over as unimportant. Certainly more sex than some erotica, though not always as clearly described. It seemed to end quite abruptly, no doubt to set up a second book.As others have mentioned, at times it appears to be embellished [...]

    10. Supposedly a true erotic memoir; erotic, yes, memoir, not likely - well, maybe but a fictionalised one for sure. It was erotic in some parts but was also focussed on relationships and how they, in Suzanne Portnoy's case (or in the case of her character in the novel) failed. Lots of eroticism, it has all passed me by and I mustn't have lived! Mildly entertaining for a light read, no Portnoy Complaint!

    11. This really is a great book, everything I wanted Belle de Jour to be, wonderfully explicit and naughty and free thinking. The prose is very easy reading and not at all clever, preachy or pretentious like this sort of writing can be. In this day and age, its great to know that there are nice, happy, horny people out there just enjoying themselves in a safe and healthy environment. If more women were as open and free thinking as Suzanne, the world would be a much more peaceful and happy place.

    12. This book has been quite an interesting read for me! I haven't read an erotic noval in quite some time, so I have been having fun getting back into it! This woman's experiences make me sad for her, but also make me wonder why she continues.

    13. Overall, the character is annoying and not believable, other than a woman trying to gain attention by obsessing over her love for the male genitalia. Perhaps I'm wrong, but my experiences tell me her audience doesn't include me. Not really

    14. I read the sequel before this, and found this one slightly disappointing. Nowhere near as good or funny as the second one! none the less an entertaining read.

    15. Don't know how you can get away with call this erotica, infact in some chapters (namely the third) it stomach churningly revolting!
