The Toy

The Toy

"The Toy is about sex, only sex, and just sex... ...and also about love and obsession and manipulation."

The Toy (second revised edition)
Set in the Seychelles, the exotic paradise where ordinary mortals hardly ever set foot, a young Czech woman describes her life within the luxurious environs of an exclusive private resort for the rich and famous. There she meets the man of her dreams and embarks on a passionate and intense relationship, bordering on obsession.

"The Toy is about sex, only sex, and just sex...
...and also about love and obsession and manipulation."

Sylva Lauerová’s literary style is very distinctive with her modern approach to language; her style is very suggestive, impressively-paced and retains elements of authenticity. The rawness of the sex scenes and the straightforward openness with which the author depicts the thought processes of a sexually-liberated woman give this book an exceptional perspective on an intimate expression of female emancipation, extending beyond the boundaries of normality.
