Chapter 1: Α different attractive novel that does not let you breathe...
"One of the most Erotic subversive Novels on 2014-2015"
The Portrait of Eve is a deep, profound and intense love story. As a novel it literally rivets the reader and brings to light hidden human aspects in the name of love and eroticism that escape the confines of the ordinary.
James is undoubtedly playing with the psyche of the reader as he or she is engulfed in the same uncontrolled emotions as the protagonists.
A sad and tragic love story is certainly not uncommon, but the love story told through The Portrait of Eve is totally different. Jacques and Eve could be the people next door but experience situations far beyond the ordinary. The story takes place in the two most romantic cities in Europe, Paris and Venice.
You will be transported there as you enjoy and endure the happiness and anguish of Jacques and Eve.
