Has anyone read..... Marquis de Sade

The chief of perversion and a different shade to the world of literature. His novel Justine and 120 days in Gomorrah are good romps i've heard.

Re: Has anyone read..... Marquis de Sade

I've never read any books by him. But there's a .pdf available online right now. Grab it if you're curious, because books by de Sade don't seem to last online.

I'm skimming over it right now. I wouldn't call it a romp. It's ponderous.

Edit: I skipped about 300 pages and skimmed the last pages. It ends with the descriptions of a few hundred fantasy murders. Still not a romp.

It's not a masterpiece because Sade adopted it from real events though.

Started reading Juliette but was so put off that gave it up right there and then. And haven't picked up a book by the author ever since.
