Publisher's Summary

Open All the Way marks Sadie Smythe's foray into long-range storytelling. Most well known for her outspoken commentary on her blog, about relationship paradigms and the navigation through her own alternative arrangement with her husband Scott, Sadie is very excited to offer her loyal readers a larger-lensed view into her openly married life. Each chapter of Open All the Way is an individual story in itself. But the combined ensemble compellingly chronicles her journey. Sadie, in her straightforward style, discusses openly and honestly the numerous pitfalls she and her husband encountered along the way while intellectually and entertainingly supporting her choices. It's sexy, smart, and provocative prose; a full, fascinating glimpse into an untraditional relationship.

Couldn't get through it

What disappointed you about Open All the Way?

This book is awful. I read a lot and have a high tolerance for a large variety of styles, but this is just terrible writing. On top of that, the author reads it herself and her reading style is completely annoying. I mean every minute of it is annoying. She uses the "F" word constantly. Now I'm not offended by the "F" word; I use it a fair amount myself. But now I know why talented writers don't use it much in their books. It lowers the quality of the writing by several degrees.

I was very interested in the topic: open relationships. But I can't recommend this book at all.

Has Open All the Way turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, not at all. This is simply a bad writer.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sadie Smythe?

I'm not sure, but she definitely should have had someone else read her book. Usually I like when the author reads, but not this time.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

Don't waste your money. I'm returning it.

Memoirs of a Sex Addict

I thought this book might provide some insights and thoughts on open marriages. Not so. This book is a detailed and often graphic description of the authors various sexual adventures, punctuated by some of her thoughts on the subject of open marriage.

Unfortunately, while it gives plenty of details about the various sexual acts and some details about those involved, little or no voice is given to the authors husband and who, appears almost coerced into the open marriage by his sex addicted wife.

It also, offers little insight into what drives the author in her relentless pursuit of extra-marital relationships. At times, I almost felt sorry for her, as there appears to be some deep unfilled need inside her. But unfortunately, this is never really explored in depth.

This is easy listening, soft porn, but offers few insights.
