Your enjoyment of this book will ultimately depend on your life circumstances, your tolerance for having your intelligence insulted and your reason for reading it. If, for example, your are a purveyor of homosexual adult films with a penchant for wacky science fiction, a dislike of large, multisyllabic words as well as a yearning to deliver an important social message about equality (who is looking for an idea for a film), then this book is for you. It has many elements which I imagine would make an adult film very successful, i.e. lots and lots of cock. Set in a futuristic, off-world, all-male society; it pits slaves (Nakeds) bred for their ability to work (read: be physically unable to disobey commands) against Freemen (who are seriously rapey). Somewhere in the background there are also Junglemen (who have a fantastically laissez-faire attitude towards sex and body hair). 75% of the book is spent either describing various sex acts, various penises (and other gems of male anatomy) or the creative use of exotic vegetation as sex-toys - all in very simple and easy-for-a-six-year-old-to-understand language (God, I even feel bad about mentioning six-year-olds in connection with this book). Hell, there's even a penis montage (I'm not joking) and a massive climatic orgy (pun absolutely intended). As a porn film, it makes so much sense, but as work of literary fiction, er, no. So if your reason for reading it is to enjoy a racy book with an interesting plot and a bit of social commentary (which was my reason), then I'd suggest giving this one a miss. But like I said, if you make porn, then this is freaking golden (I can just see the DVD cover - well-hung hunks obscured by the strategically placed leaves of alien plants. Maybe with some galaxies in the background? A phallic spaceship or two? The dual globes of the twin moons? No?).
