Maria has several experiences with young love but her true love never appears, leaving Maria to believe that she is destined to live without that most important element that she believes most people find. Maria is different from other girls in her town in that she craves adventure, but it is not until she has graduated and has worked two years in a draper's shop that Maria can save enough money for a small vacation. Maria goes to Rio de Janeiro, where she is approached by a Swiss entertainment businessman and is coaxed to fly back to Switzerland with the man and work in his nightclub as a samba dancer.
Immediately upon her arrival, Maria learns the truth about the arrangement and will receive much less money that she had hoped, forcing her into a lifestyle much more restricted than the one she had imagined. When the man discovers that Maria has dated a man she had met at the club, she is fired.
Fortunately, the man helps Maria get a generous severance package and Maria is able to live for awhile while she looks for more work. Maria signs up at a modeling agency and meets a client to discuss a fashion show, but Maria ends up sleeping with the man for money.
This is the beginning of Maria's career as a prostitute, something she does because it is good money for relatively little investment. Maria works as a prostitute at a club on a street in Geneva, which is famous for such places. She has many clients and makes a lot of money, which she plans to use to fly back home to Brazil in a year's time.
Nov 05, Leajk rated it did not like it Recommends it for: no one ever ever, especially not an acquaintance of the opposite sex Recommended to Leajk by: an acquaintance I no longer have any contact with Shelves: rubbish So while living in Switzerland, I had this book recommended, nay practically forced upon me by a male acquaintance the book was put into my hands at a party and he told me that I should borrow it. Not having read anything by Coelho previously, though with a vague remembrance of my high school teacher violently hating the guy, I set about politely reading it.
Imagine my surprise when I found out that the book was about an immigrant sex worker in Switzerland. It made me more than a little uncomf So while living in Switzerland, I had this book recommended, nay practically forced upon me by a male acquaintance the book was put into my hands at a party and he told me that I should borrow it.
It made me more than a little uncomfortable, not because I have anything against sex workers, but because I was also an immigrant living in Switzerland and I was in fact looking for a new job at the moment, and this guy knew that, and well, it wasn't really what I had in mind. I'm guessing or hoping that my friend's intrigue was with Coelho's general pseudo-philosophy and that's why he recommended it.
I'm hoping that he wasn't really fascinated and wanting to discuss the plot. The lovely plot of how Maria, the sex worker, has to choose between two of her millionaire clients; one who's a sadistic bad boy and one who is more into delayed sexual gratification or even abstinence if I remember correctly but kind of complicated and hard to get close.
The reason for posting this review now, besides being reminded of it while I was reviewing a streak of horrible books, is that I suddenly realised that there was actually already a BDSM-story from a very popular author way before Fifty Shades of Grey.
Or rather, from what I've read about Fifty Shades, it's about BDSM only while suggesting that anyone who's into it is really a depraved lunatic.
In the end of this book spoiler! Maria denounces her previous wicked BDSM-ways and chooses the right man! I'm actually thinking about writing an analysis on the whole phenomenon of writing detailed descriptions about BDSM, while at the same time denouncing it.
It is really about trying to have the cake and eating it at the same time.Paperback Brand: Find out more about OverDrive accounts. Search inside document.
