HASH(0xaa9c3048) out of 5 stars Beyond Expectation July 7 2006
By Aspire Behr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I can't say enough good things about this novel. As I read I was transported back in time by both the story content and Raiment's style of writing. The vocabulary he uses as well as the style of punctuation and grammar serve to hold the reader in the Victorian era. It is a wonderful story with some very interesting twists and you are left to wonder, even hope, that it actually is a true account of one woman's great life adventure.

Beyond the story itself, you also sense the author's strong feelings regarding the make up of today's society, the unwritten rules of our culture that often limit us as human beings. He offers up an idyllic alternative to tease your imagination.

In my opinion this novel is destined to become the "Fanny Hill" or "Lady Chatterley's Lover" of our time. A book not to be passed over.

HASH(0xaa9d1318) out of 5 stars Aphrodite Overboard July 10 2006
By Cliff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Is this fiction? The way the story is told, in that lovely "bygone English" - it makes it all seem so very believable and real.

"Erotic" appears in the subtitle and erotic this novel is! Sex in all its lovely forms. Heats the blood and gets it headed to all the right places ......... it did for me. 170 pages of delicious eroticism: kinky and straight but always beautifully handled. Susanna is sweet, Susanna is insatiable. Sinful (and beautiful) writing Mr./Ms. Raiment.


P.S. Are drawings available for that chair? Nobody's 'playroom' should be without one!

HASH(0xb5a7ba44) out of 5 stars Brave new world! Dec 20 2015
By Terrance Aldon Shaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Drawing on the great classic shipwreck/castaway narratives for inspiration, Richard Raiment turns the well-worn scenario on its paternalistic, male-chauvinist head to dazzle readers with this stylish, thoughtful, imaginative, and surprisingly entertaining yarn of a beautiful, free-spirited late-18th-century English noblewoman who finds herself washed up on a far-distant tropical shore, being worshiped as a fertility goddess by the natives. What could easily have devolved into just another raunchy, exploitative softcore romp is here masterfully elevated into a work of literary homage at once strikingly authentic and intriguingly original. Delving the story's erogenous depths with a marvelously literate gusto, Raiment portrays his characters as fully-formed, healthily self-aware human beings, introspective, sensitive, joyful and abundant, striving constantly for a deeper sense of mutual understanding and soulful connection. The evils of colonialism, racism, and triumphalist sectarianism are trenchantly observed while never distracting from the compelling action of the tale or ever seeming too anachronistically preachy. Few writers ever manage to hold so consistently to period-correct stylistic conventions through the entirety of a novel-length narrative, but Raiment here pulls off this amazing feat of literary legerdemain most elegantly without ever seeming stilted or forced. I am now very much looking forward to reading his Islands, which offers yet another take on the castaway adventure narrative.

Simply brilliant!

HASH(0xaa9dd708) out of 5 stars good book Feb. 6 2010

Love the descriptive scenes in book, had to get past the victorian english. But overall a very good book.
HASH(0xaa9d1060) out of 5 stars A little gem April 10 2010
By Richard V Raiment - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this as a gift for a lady friend who had never read erotica before, and she loved it. If the Story of O is your thing, if you find the pain and humiliation of others a turn-on, then Aphrodite Overboard is NOT for you. If you'd like to imagine love and sex in a tropical paradise where the prejudices of the 'civilized' world are unknown, then this is, indeed, a little gem.
