      Three Women
Desire as we ve never seen it before a riveting true story about the sex lives of three real American women, based on nearly a decade of reporting.It thrills us and torments us It controls our thoughts and destroys our lives It s all we live for Yet we almost never speak of it And as a buried force in our lives, desire remains largely unexplored until now Over the past eight years, journalist Lisa Taddeo has driven across the country six times to embed herself with ordinary women from different regions and backgrounds The result, Three Women, is the deepest nonfiction portrait of desire ever written.We begin in suburban Indiana with Lina, a homemaker and mother of two whose marriage, after a decade, has lost its passion She passes her days cooking and cleaning for a man who refuses to kiss her on the mouth, protesting that the sensation offends him To Lina s horror, even her marriage counselor says her husband s position is valid Starved for affection, Lina battles daily panic attacks When she reconnects with an old flame through social media, she embarks on an affair that quickly becomes all consuming.In North Dakota we meet Maggie, a seventeen year old high school student who finds a confidant in her handsome, married English teacher By Maggie s account, supportive nightly texts and phone calls evolve into a clandestine physical relationship, with plans to skip school on her eighteenth birthday and make love all day instead, he breaks up with her on the morning he turns thirty A few years later, Maggie has no degree, no career, and no dreams to live for When she learns that this man has been named North Dakota s Teacher of the Year, she steps forward with her story and is met with disbelief by former schoolmates and the jury that hears her case The trial will turn their quiet community upside down.Finally, in an exclusive enclave of the Northeast, we meet Sloane a gorgeous, successful, and refined restaurant owner who is happily married to a man who likes to watch her have sex with other men and women He picks out partners for her alone or for a threesome, and she ensures that everyone s needs are satisfied For years, Sloane has been asking herself where her husband s desire ends and hers begins One day, they invite a new man into their bed but he brings a secret with him that will finally force Sloane to confront the uneven power dynamics that fuel their lifestyle.Based on years of immersive reporting, and told with astonishing frankness and immediacy, Three Women is a groundbreaking portrait of erotic longing in today s America, exposing the fragility, complexity, and inequality of female desire with unprecedented depth and emotional power It is both a feat of journalism and a triumph of storytelling, brimming with nuance and empathy, that introduces us to three unforgettable women and one remarkable writer whose experiences remind us that we are not alone.

    What even is this book Broadly, it follows the desires and sex lives of three women but it feels like a novelizationthan reportage Ten years of following these women went into this book but the author seemsconcerned with transcription than any sort of thoughtful analysis She draws no significant conclusions on the nature of women s desires Also, the title could be Three White Women, as all three women chronicled here are white There is nothing wrong with that but it is such What even is this book Broadly, it follows the desires and sex lives of three women but it feels like a novelizationthan reportage Ten years of following these women went into this book but the author seemsconcerned with transcription than any sort of thoughtful analysis She draws no significant conclusions on the nature of women s d...

    It wasn t regular, what you did, and now here I am Look at me I put this war paint on, but underneath I m scarred and scared and horny and tired and love you. I can understand why many readers were disappointed with this book Luckily for me, it was recommended to me the right way by a friend who painted it as a juicy and compelling portrait of three women s sex lives Not as some amazing non fiction project that contains the secrets of female desire.If you came for the latter, I think It wasn t regular, what you did, and now here I am Look at me I put this war paint on, but underneath I m scarred and scared and horny and tired and love you.

    Audiobook read by Tara Lynne Barr, Marin Ireland, Mena Suvari, and Lisa Taddeo I ve listened to 3 hours so far of the 11 hours and 24 minutes Dave Eggers said I can t imagine a scenario where this isn t one of theimportant and breathlessly debated books of the year Well let the debates begin I don t feel this book is worth the praise it s getting at all My thoughts so far.Honest thoughts I think very little of it The concept might have been a great idea.But 8 Audiobook read by Tara Lynne Barr, Marin Ireland, Mena Suvari,...

    This is quite a perplexing book as I m not sure what Taddeo s intentions were She takes three American women and tells their stories of failed love, disappointing marriages, unmet or unfulfilled sexual and emotional needs In some ways the stories are different and, almost deliberately echo themes covered in recent fiction Lina, in a sexless marriage, falls into an affair with her high school boyfriend Maggie is groomed into a sexual relationship with her high school teacher Sloane This is quite a perplexing book as I m not sure what Taddeo s intentions were She takes three American women and tells their stories of failed love, disappointing marriages, unmet or unfulfilled sexual and emoti...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here TLDR I hated this book so much that I m genuinely angry Advertised as a non fiction book about women s sexual desire, I chose this as my Book of the Month pick expecting stories of women exploring what it means to confidently own their sexuality in a Virgin Whore patriarchal society What I got instead were three stories in which women s exclusively hetero sexual encounters were graphically and sometimes awkwardly Cadbury Cream Eggs are ruined for me forever relayed as a backdrop to what was TL...

    Yawn This book about three damaged women and their sad sex lives was not for me I feel sorry for all of them especially Maggie who was totally screwed but I found the book tedious and pointless Eight years of research for this

    I did find the stories interesting to read, but I have a myriad of issues with the book.1 This book is marketed as a book about women s sexual desires, but of the three women s stories, only Lina s is about her sexual desire Maggie s story is about how she was groomed by her male teacher, and Sloane s is about how she has sex with other men because her husband likes it, even if she doesn t like or find those men attractive Those two stories aren t about women s sexual desires they re about I did find the stories interesting to read, but I have a myriad of issues with the book.1 This book is marketed as a book about women s sexual desires, but of the three women s stories, only Lina s is about her sexual desire Maggie s story is about how she was groomed by her male teacher, and Sloane s is about how s...

    For a long time I didn t read a nonfiction and after reading intriguing and provocative blurb and some mixed reviews I wanted to jump in without thinking any further.I loved to see those three women early lives and their experiences, bad and good doings, suffering from all those hypocrisies, unfair verdicts, and judgmental looks They might be abused and exhausted after carrying so much emotional pain and burdens but they are real survivors Mostly three of them could be easily sympathized For a long time I didn t read a nonfiction and after reading intriguing and provocative blurb and some mixed reviews I wanted to jump in without thinking any further.I loved to see those three women early lives and their experiences, bad and good doings, suffering from all those hypocrisies, unfair verdicts, and judgmental looks They might be abused and exhausted after carrying so much emotional pain and burdens but they are real survivors Mostly three of them could be easily sympathized Especially my heart broke for Maddie and her story I couldn t say the same for Sloane But I do understand her and her motives and thoughts beyond her actions But what I didn t like about this research We don t get a proper analysis after reading the transcript We didn t get the emotional approach about those women s suffer even after the revelation of injustice I can understand maybe the author chose the stories speak for themselves but I still wanted to read something summ...
