This story is so incredibly confusing. Mostly because it is all about lies. Most stories, even if they feature lying are still filled with a hint as to what the truth is. This tale doesn’t have that hint of sanity about it. It’s just a mess of insanity and craziness. Something in which I just couldn’t figure out what was or wasn’t happening.
This short story kind of ruined Tarzan for me. It was disturbed, kind of disgusting and really, really weird. Not something that I plan to ever read again. Not the kind of story that I would allow my children to read. But also way more realistic than the Disney version I know (I haven’t got around to reading the classic yet). Which is probably why I found it so sickening – the realism made me go “huh” this is what probably happened, not the nice version with Jane.
Everyone’s first time is memorable. I just hope that it’s not memorable like this… because this is just downright, horrifyingly disturbing. Makes me incredibly glad for my awkward, uncomfortable “first time”… at least it wasn’t like this!!!
This is my first ever hive mind story. And one of the most intense and kind of insane stories I’ve read in a long time. Thoroughly enjoyable. Impossible to forget. And a great introduction to the genre of speculative fiction. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into more!!!
This is so completely disturbed. And I LOVED it. There was this wonderfully sassy, sarcastic and fun voice to the narration of this story. One that helped make this feel a little less disturbed, and a little more plausible. It was still incredibly disturbed, and I still felt slightly dirty for even reading it. But I also loved that it had me laughing out loud because it was truly out there.
