I got this book for three reasons:
- I love the narrator
- It was super cheap (free e-book + 99-cent audio)
- The title made me go, "Okay, I have to see what this is about."
I was expecting a humorous sci-fi adventure, and it was that. But there was a surprising amount of philosophical musings on things like equality and the role of porn in society. These didn't derail the story too badly, but they did slow things down a bit, which is why I'm giving it 3 stars instead of 4. Though I got the sense that this commentary was most of the reason the author wrote the book. The relationships between the characters were nice.
As a cheap, quick listen, it's definitely worth the read. After the book, there's a commentary by the author on porn, which looks at things from a humanistic/evolutionary perspective. Not sure that part really added anything to the fiction, and the book could have done without it.

Alien Space Tentacle Porn by Peter Cawdron is another book that proves I am on the right track when I follow this great author! This book is a hoot! A regular guy, minding his own business, somehow gets caught up in some craziness. He sees a guy get shot in the head in front of him, the dead guy's sister enlists his help to drag his body around, doing strange things to it, leaves him with a gun after she shoots at the FBI, and on it goes.... later in the holding cell in jail, along with a drunk, the girl strips naked and has him splash soapy water on her so she can slip through the bars all the while the drunk is making comments! It is so funny. The FBI catch him and they think he is an alien, that is so funny too. It is a short book but it is so good. I really enjoyed this clever story.
The narrator was pure perfection! It is hard to do comedy but this is done so well that the narration enhances the humor! Loved it all! Wonderful job!
