This now classic audiobook of erotica is, alongside Story of O, the most famous French underground novel of the late twentieth century and a work of seductive literary merit. Written by the wife of a diplomat in the French Foreign Service, it takes the form of an autobiographical novel, which it may or may not be.
As the story opens, Emmanuelle is boarding a plane in London to rejoin her husband in Bangkok. She finds herself powerfully compelled by the overnight passenger seated beside her, and before she has landed, her irrepressible sensual nature has begun to open wide vistas of sexual possibility. As the novel continues, she moves easily from the waiting arms of her husband to intimacies with the wives of his business associates to further explorations and experiences in which the subtle aesthetics of eroticism are expounded - and enacted - to their fullest.
Emmanuelle, which has sold hundreds of thousands of copies since its initial clandestine publication in France, relates the movement of a woman from an unconscious to a profoundly conscious sexuality.

Godawful “Italian” accent
As a fan of 70s cult movies, watching and being a fan of the Emmanuelle movie is only natural for me. In this audiobook I enjoyed the narrator’s English accent at the beginning and thought the French accents she did were fine as well until she played the Mario character.... that Italian man accent first sounded like a Russian accent until I realized she was trying to be an Italian man. It was the most annoying hours of my life to listen to this til the end. I wish they would’ve just had a man try to do it if anything. It bothered me so much that I couldn’t really get into the story because of it.
