Review & #Giveaway - The Kama Sutra


ABOUT THE BOOK:

A gorgeous deluxe edition of the world's most celebrated guide to life, love, relationships and pleasure.

Little is known about Vatsyayana, who is reputed to have composed the Kama Sutra "while observing a celibate's life in full meditation." In Sanskrit the word "kama" means desire, especially for sensual pleasure, and its proper pursuit was considered an essential part of a young, urbane gentleman's well-rounded education.

Untold numbers of readers are curious about the Kama Sutra but put off by its clich├ęd image as an erotic Oriental curiosity. This elegant edition offers a compelling modern translation of a classic Indian masterpiece-and a wry and entertaining account of human desire and foibles.

MY THOUGHTS:
The Kama Sutra is a widely popular book of love.  I had heard numerous things about the book but had never actually sat down and read it before.  I received a review copy right around Valentine's Day and decided it was the perfect book to read during the holiday.

I was surprised by how well the words seemed to flow.  It definitely brought out some emotions and made me think, which is the whole reason that I love reading.  I feel like I can connect on a deeper level and for that I am grateful.

If anyone's desperate to read this book, public domain copies of the Kama Sutra should be online.
