    One thought on “Affection”

    1. Richard tied me to a pole because I asked him to He used duct tape and and he secured my wrists with it The mattress was within reach but only close enough to rest my head on There was something strangely domestic about the morning He filled up the sink and I could hear the clatter of plates in the soapy water I imagined that he would look up from the dishes and watch me I wondered if I looked ridiculous in submission, if he was grinning with the humor of it all Perhaps he watched impassively, c [...]

    2. A pleasurable book of many unusual excellences The promise of sex drew me in, yet, although there is perhaps sex in this book than most and of delicious, though not exhaustive, variety , it is not really a work of erotica The smooth writing kept me reading There are some lovely developing metaphors, e.g I hold her delicate fingers and smile, and I think about how deeply she could reach inside me with those elegant hands A wriggling fish of thought, fleeting, gone in a second, but there will be [...]

    3. This memoir was so intense I m not sure what word to use I was expecting something sexy and risque These pages were filled with her finding and becoming these sexual realizations, urges, explorations, not only with herself but with other people I found it so interesting that she explains at such an early age younger than 10 but she was raised SO sheltered There were parts that had me to grossed out that I gagged a little As she grew into her womanhood, it seemed like no holds barred and she had [...]

    4. Read my full review at Book ThingoSometimes you find a book impossible to put down, not because of what it says about the world, but because of what it knows about you Affection is that kind of book.Who might enjoy it LibertinesWho might not enjoy it PrudesAffection is, at times, almost unbearably honest And yet Kneen s lyricism dulls the edge off some of the darkest parts of the book depression, attempted suicide, homelessness Worst is the emotional cruelty Kneen endures at the hands of careles [...]

    5. Affection follows the path of Krissy Kneen s life journey, from the compulsive sexual self exploration of her childhood to her experiences as a young woman for whom the world is a sexual playground Brave and honest in her assessment of her own sexual addictions Bold indeed, comes to mind when I think of Krissy, even in her fear I admire the raw exposure of inner most feelings, thoughts, and details Intimidating and liberating Her story gradual drags you into the deep trenches of her insatiable l [...]

    6. Krissy is a great writer the prose in Affection reminds me of an Olympic gymnast, so fluid and natural with seemingly no effort behind the easy flow of the words.The subject matter is at times confronting The world Krissy depicts in her book is a world few of us will have experienced and she is immensely brave to allow us to delve into her most intimate moments, from the sweet interactions with her family, to the humiliating encounters with Brian We see Krissy at her most vulnerable, such as in [...]

    7. This book has been on my radar for a while It s the story of Krissy s exploration of sexual desire Kneen is a great writer who tells her story of sexual exploration and acceptance with great honesty and forthrightness There are moments of great eroticism as she lays out her sexual adventures and revelations Kneen has also written a book of erotic short stories and I ll be following this up.

    8. I have a personalised signed copy of this one A beautiful memoir from the first time published Brisbane author I met her at a book launch and she is every bit as open and sincere in real life as she comes across in the book.Needless to say I recommend this book, but it will not be everyone s cup of tea.

    9. A fantastic read Looks deeply at the issues of intimacy, commitment, relationships and lust I found it to be an interesting look into the psychology of someone addicted to sex rather than it coming across as an erotic book, even though it definitely is in parts.

    10. Truly struggled to read this book through It is supposed to be a story about a woman s discovery of her sexuality but honestly it reads like a story of sexual abuse I found it difficult to read as I thought this woman remained disempowered by the way she even wrote this book

    11. Brutally honest Raw Beautifully written Hard with a sweet, soft centre Definitely a read for those with an open mind If only we could all write this way.

    12. Affection follows the path of Krissy Kneen s life journey, from the compulsive sexual self exploration of her childhood to her experiences as a young woman for whom the world is a sexual playground Brave and honest in her assessment of her own sexual addictions Bold indeed, comes to mind when I think of Krissy, even in her fear I admire the raw exposure of her inner most feelings, thoughts, and details Intimidating and liberating Her story gradual drags you into the deep trenches of her insatiab [...]

    13. I liken reading this book to confronting modern poetry you know, the type where words are splashed on the page in strange combinations, and those in the know will tell you that it s wonderful, even brilliant Unfortunately for me, I have never gotten modern poetry And I didn t get this book It felt like the author was trying to be fancy, but, then, given how retarded I am in the appreciation of modern poetry, I concede the same thing might be happening here I found myself skipping whole sections [...]

    14. There were times reading this book when I wanted to give the author a big hug and tell her things would be alright There were other times when I thought she was foolish and immature and I wanted to tell her to grow up and stop letting people take advantage of her I admired her honesty and despite the graphic content thought her depiction of her feelings and emotions at the time were insightful For any person who has struggled with their own sexuality it s a great read.I look forward to reading [...]

    15. A beautiful ending, but on the whole this is quite a depressing book She s just such a sad and forlorn character However, I really admire Kneen s writing style she captures sensations so well humidity, rawness, desire, obsession This should be 2.5 stars, I guess.

    16. Close to being a 5 star The cover doesn t do it justice in fact those looking for straight normative hetero erotica might be rather upset A full and intriguing character development.

    17. This book made me feel really sad I wanted some depth and introspection, some redemption and gratitude All I found was a pile of old mechanics and a bit of self pity.
