Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I have very mixed feelings about this book. The story starts with Candace, a lonely and bored housewife who wants to have a baby - with someone other than her husband. He's dull in life and in bed, unable to satisfy her physical or intellectual needs...not exactly the genetic material she wants passed on to her child. She wants the father to be strong, powerful, rugged, possessive, vibrant. That's when the alien senses her heat and comes looking for her.
The set up is very well paced, from the way the alien makes sure Candace is suitable to the moment Candace is claimed. It's a wonderful blend of the anticipation you get in a horror / sci-fi story combined with the erotic thrill of experiencing such an unusual, powerful lover.
The final portion of the book feels very incongruous. What starts as a very enrapturing and personal encounter quickly breaks down into a bad hentai, complete with terrible dialogue and a flimsy rational for the creatures being there. Had the story ended with Candace and a hint of the other creatures behind the scenes, I think the story would have been much better. And the author's ending could even work - had she spent more time putting it together instead of tossing us randomly into a new scene and circumstances while putting us through some rather painful cattiness and conversation.
Would you ever listen to anything by Sonia Robinson again?
I think I'd give her another chance, especially with the solid introduction of this story.
What three words best describe Katherine White’s performance?
Alluring, hungry, enticing.
Did Tentacles Pump the Wife inspire you to do anything?
The first half, absolutely. The second half? It made me more upset than anything.
