Who is Lisa Tuttle and why is she such a pervert? We may never find an answer to that second question. After all, what drives an author to write some of the most psychologically harrowing, squick-inducing, “find your soft places and dig in with my fingernails” mass market paperbacks of the 1980s? Why does she seem to delight in our discomfort? But maybe the answer is easy.Why is Lisa Tuttle so perverse? It might be because her books taste better that way.Especially this one.Get squicky and read the rest of this review.
I removed the review just because. Basically. Apparently there's loads of books with the situation in this book that I didn't really like ... that was sure news to me. In a nutshell, in its entirety, I am not a fan of this book, nor am I feeling the urge to seek out her other novels. Up until the last couple chapters, before the part that made me dislike the story, the story was pretty interesting. So to be fair, awhile after I originally posted the review, I'll give it that much. My original review also may have seemed harsh since apparently literature like this is legal. I'd reckon the reason I reacted to this book the way I did was because I seriously had no idea that novels like this were in print. Be that as it may, other readers may read her, but I still don't feel compelled to seek out her other books.
