Publisher's Summary

We all dream of the forbidden, but some of us make those dreams come true....With the same mystery, menace, and intensity as her Vampire books, Anne Rice's Exit to Eden explores the forbidden by taking us to The Club, a vacation paradise where no aspect of sexual pleasure is taboo. Just as The Story of O shocked the '60s by speaking aloud about what had only been whispered, Exit to Eden gives voice to the sexual secrets of the '80s.

What the Critics Say

"Bold and erotic, laced with luxury, sexual tension, music...dazzling in its darkness....There are times when Mrs. Rice seems like nothing less than a magician. It is a pure and uncanny talent that can give voice to monsters and angels both." (The New York Times Book Review)

butchered the story

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I've loved exit to eden for a long time and after listening to the preview of Gillan Anderson reading it I was happy to buy it. But then I started to listen to it. I was disapointed to find that any of the S&M parts seems striped from the book, any thing that wasn't conventional boy girl vanilla sex had been cut from the story. Why did they bother making an audio book? I was fine with a few things being shaved off, it was abridged, I hoped that meant they would focus on the main romance, I didn't relies that meant what washing over the really good bits! So disappointed.

Took too much out.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

They took too much out in making this abridged. It seems to skip and just becomes a romance novel.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Can tell the storyline was good, but again, too much missing.
