The opening was intriguing with a splash of humor to enliven things. Overall, this is yet another story about beings who require sex to stave off “madness”; they are the bred. It’s the bred vs the born, with the born running things. Eventually, there are also cyborgs. They all live in a world created “after the world stopped spinning.”
The narrator takes a bit of getting use to. She is so mild that it can sound like she’s unemotional. But she isn’t—exactly. Her mild tone sorta adds a hint of romance and sincerity and reduces the rawness of explicit terms (i.e. pu**y) in a good way.
Sex, as full intercourse, was rare, so the story had a plot and purpose. In fact, it dealt with some meaningful issues like freedom, oppression, and selfhood. The story included about 2 acts of female masturbation, 1, barely detailed, male act of masturbation, one act of oral sex male-on-female, and several times sex was talked about as a past act and sexual desire spoken of. And intercourse occurred near the end, when there were about 45 minutes left. I liked everything except the end where it turned into this Aesop’s fable sort of thing with an afterlife agent telling the h about a lesson she needs to learn. And the epilogue opens the door for a sequel, though this book, thankfully, has a closed ending.
