What would have made Jason better?
Anyone that has followed LKH this far knows the struggle that readers have gone through in hopes that the Anita Blake story line would return to it's former glory. This short story embodies everything that has gone wrong in the series. Whinny relationship story lines. No detective work. No good vs evil. SPOILER ALERT: It's nothing but a couple of hours of lover complaints and overly graphic group sex. Anita whipping out her metaphysical phallus to make sure everyone knows she's the best at everything, even girl on girl... The story of Anita is lost and as a early fan of the series I'm disappointed.

"Jason" accounts for 4 hours and 44 minutes of my life that I'll never get back. I tried to think of something positive to say about this book and I have come up with nothing. LKH has quit writing adventure stories and completely moved to badly written therapy-porn. If you enjoy amateur sex therapy with clinical descriptions of mechanical sex with multiple partners and no emotional involvement or plot, dive on in. Even if you can stand pure plot-less porn, just be prepared for the sex to stop frequently for lengthy, boring rationalizations and lectures on the benefits of multiple partners. It's somewhat ironic that LKH explains ad nauseum the joys of polyamorism while simultaneously demonstrating how boring and empty it is.
This is the first time in years of listening to audiobooks that my overriding thought was sympathy for the narrator. Not even Kimberly Alexis could save this story but I do hope she was paid well. Simply Awful.
