    There has recently been a sudden interest in the subject of Hysteria, and the methods used to treat such conditions during the Victorian era with the introduction of a medical instrument in 1870 known as a vibrator. A film about it's invention is currently being made starring Maggie GyllenhaelAugust 29 2010A free read on Eva websiteSo called medical treatments and cures in the past were I think debatable sometimes based on notions rather than any credibilty.cially for those 'considered' unbalanc [...]

  • Ƥʋиʏα [Punya Reviews...]

    My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the bookOk have to admit the whole premise of this novella sounded weird to me but it was because I had no idea how a patient of hysteria was treated back in the middle or late 19th century. I haven’t read a review for this before reading, so I went back to and this is what I learned on female hysteria and it’s treatment:The technique was difficult for a physician to master and could take hours to achieve "hysterical [...]

    1.5 Stars, at most.Not sure what I was expecting from this, but this definitely was not it. There wasn't really much story or romance, almost pointless AND plotless, lacking any real character development of any kind or any progression of story The only thing that was interesting enough were the sex scenes, although, I can't even say those were all that memorable or engaging either. What a pity. That description sounded interesting enough, but boy did it fall short in execution.

  • Yvette

    At first, you think her mad.Then, you find her loveless.When the pity's worn off, you feel much better, but you are not left without little aches and pains.For this is still a daring tale, and a slightly sad one too.Sad in the way that only old-time medicine can make you go mad - if you need a guide, just think of good 'ol Dr. McCoy! MCCOY: Assassins! Murderers! Murderers! Assassins! You! What planet is this? (he drops the bottle) No! Don't run! I won't kill you! It's they who do the killing! Do [...]

  • Phoebebb

    Hysteria, also known as Wondering Womb, was a diagnosis that fit almost every ailment and was made exclusively in women. The uterus was believed to be a living creature that wandered throughout a particularly passionate woman's body. Treatment for most women was manual stimulation of the genitals by their doctor, or pelvic exam, until she experienced hysterical paroxysm; otherwise known as orgasm.This is definitely a subject I have never run across before in fiction, and besides a few editorial [...]

  • Dana

    even though this was a short story (57 pages on my nook) it drew me in, I have read about the treatments for women of the past, and this was told from the woman's point of view, I enjoyed it and thought it was over too soon, the author Eva Gale should try her hand at longer stories, I would read them.

  • Tara

    Appalling. If I could give this book negative stars I would. It is a poorly written attempt at 19th century pornography.Worst birthday gift ever.

  • Eliza

    intresting topic but the story was too short to develop the characters. I had no investment in them and couldnt careless about their "Illness" or the ridiculous treatments.

  • The UHQ Nasanta

    2.5 starsWhen I first started this, I did not know about the historical background of Hysteria and the treatments that had been recommended until I'd read a couple of reviews and looked up the information online. It enabled me to look at it from a different perspective, and made it a better reading experience. I liked this story. The HEA was rather sweet although it was too short to show why and how Dr. Drake and Constance fell in love. It was also a bit uncomfortable to read and I wasn't certai [...]

  • BookNerdette

    I knew it would be on the erotica side when it says for ’18 and Up’. But I admit I didn’t realize the diagnosis and the treatment were the… um, erotic part.It is a short story which is fine, I have found they are a helpful boost in helping me keep my book numbers up so I tend to grab one here and there. With my Nook it is easy as I download their free B&N copies as I find one of interest.Well when I was finished… I sat briefly Huh?Crazy daddy, horrid mother, doctor that fondles her [...]

  • Wicked ♥(Wickedly Bookish Reviews) aka Bat-Jess

    This was a Barnes & Noble ebook freebie. I enjoy these short little stories that I can read when I'm in the mood for one and Hysteria is a bit better than the average. Hysteria creates an erotic story around the 19th century method for treating madness or "hysteria" in women. Pretty creepy when you think about it, but this short story manages to make something erotic out of it. At first you think the main charcter is an insane person recieving weekly "treatments" however, you later ocme to f [...]

  • Noelle

    If I could discribe this book in one word it would be "mehh". First, this one is in first person wich I hate but I read it anyway. Second it's a REALLY short novella, not much time to develope ANY of the characters and Thrid, just plain boring. IMO.Constance (h) is a 25 year old spinster that lives with her mother. She goes to the doctor for "treaments" for her hysteria. She secretly really loves her treatments and can hardly stand herself in between doctor app.Doctor Drake (H) knows that Consta [...]

  • Sibel Hodge

    First of all, when I read this, I wasn't aware of the "treatments" for hysteria given to women in the 19th Century, and it's pretty creepy and freaky to think this actually went on!I'm not in to erotic romance really but I have to admit the writing sucked me in. It's very eloquently written and pretty powerful. But I was disappointed with the ending which happened too quickly and gave no real reason or explanation for it. I think the short story could've been expanded on to make for a more fulfi [...]

  • Michelle Birbeck

    This is the second of Eva Gale’s short stories I’ve read, and I loved it. I’m not one for history, but the occasional historical novel I do enjoy. This is one of those. It isn’t the hot and steamy erotica that 101 Degrees Fahrenheit was, and was more along the lines of The Seduction of Gabriel Stewart, in its slow build and fantastic finale. The only complaint I had, in fact, was that, as with the other stories by Eva Gale, the ending seemed somewhat rushed. Overall though, five stars, a [...]

  • LastBreath

    Uhm I didn't expect that.Ok bizarre medical practices aside this didn't really read like a short story. As harsh as this may sound it came across like a middle of the night quickly written draft. The characters are all disconnected, it didn't have a decent plot and neither was their any romance to qualify the end result. So why 2 stars? Because this is first historical - hysteria - erotica type that I've read. It's kind of hard to judge when I've never picked up a similar one. Suffice to say I d [...]

  • Kristi Etherton

    I must admit that I rarely find heterosexual erotica any good. I'm a lesbian, so the whole concept of this erotica shouldn't have been my type of read. However, the premise to the story was interesting enough for me to decide to try this story.The writing is dirty, but in an eloquent way. I didn't see much of the main character being particularly hysterical, but it was well written and I did enjoy it.

  • Shanon

    I have always had a fascination with the treatment of mental illness in days long gone. In this short story our main character, Constance, has been diagnosed with hysteria. Her treatment is unusual to say the least. I wasn’t sure how much of this story could be based on fact but a little research on I found it to be fairly accurate.

  • Darcy

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this one, it was a freebie I picked up a while ago. So when I started to read it and realized it was from the time when women went to Doctors and were treated with orgasms I had to laugh, not what I expected at all. This "old maid" was starting to live for her treatments, although things changed when her doctor changed from an old man to a young man. The ending had me laughing even more and was about what you would expect.

  • westernway

    Was interested to read this book, as remember enjoying the film of the same name which stared Maggie Gyllenhaal. However I do feel that it was too short and because of this the story felt a little rushed, with no real build up of the relationship between the characters. Would have liked to see how the people in this story coped with the aftermath of what they had done.

  • Sunsette

    Quite an erotic little book. By the description I wouldn't have guessed it. This is a good candidate for "never judge a book by it's cover." It isn't something I would have chosen to read had I known what it is about. I don't really understand how hysteria came into play, and I have never heard of it being "treated" in such a manner. It left me a bit befuddled.

  • L. Neal

    What a creepy, dark short tale. I learn something new everyday, never knew this went on.I was actually wondered who condoned these treatments. Medicine has come very far in the modern world, thank God. I enjoyed this short story. Hoping the author gives us a full novel.

  • Sherry

    I'm amazed so many people said this story was not what they were expecting. Wow! They never hear of female hysteria? Check out YouTube for a new movie trailer Hysteria romantic comedy about the invention of the vibrator.

  • Gerri Watkins

    Its rare I give a story five stars, this one rates just that! The mental health of Constances mother and the quack older doctor, its a wonder this young woman made it through to adulthood, let alone happiness. I enjoyed this short story in one sitting, just could not put it down. Well done!

  • Erin

    My friend asked me to read this because she disliked it so much. It was a decent and quick read but I thought it was poorly written and lacked substance. I had no idea that they used to do this type of treatment back in the day.

  • Carrie

    This story was "ok" at best. It was a quick read that killed some time, so for that, it's worth two stars.

  • Julie

    Not what I thoght at all, I didn't finish reading. I was think more of insane crazy people needing help, not people having sex addicitons. If this book gets better I have no Idea.

  • Taylor

    Short Story. Erotica. This was not what I expected at all. But, it was okay for a short read.

  • Destiny

    Erotica isn't really my thing, but I enjoyed this short story.

  • Katie Harris

    This would have been pretty good as a developed, full-sized novel.

  • Claire

    It's crazy to believe that hysteria was a real "thing" so long ago. If you ask me, though, it was just an excuse for gross horny old doctors to get into the pants of young gullible women.
