You're either going to love this story or hate it. I doubt there will be any middle ground. Why? Because the basic premise of the story, a rape that goes right, is so politically incorrect as to drive bonkers those that subscribe the politically correct Ardent Feminist's (AFs) rabid foam-at-the-mouth screech about man's enslavement of women.
Couple that with a story that is just plain uproariously, rib ticklingly funny and you might understand why I consider this story to be underrated by at least 1.5 points (currently at 7.78). And understand that I don't like rape stories. Especially if it projects violence against women. Those type leave me almost physically ill. Even if the women aren't battered, however, a story about forceful imposition of will upon an innocent victim just doesn't resonate well with me.
"You Want To Do What?" is neither. It is a well paced story about 4 souls (2 main and 2 minor pairs) that society seems to have forgotten about. The characters, to me, are somewhat memorable, especially the female protagonist. Why she felt the way about herself as she does is a mystery to me. And something that I suspect the author deliberately engendered. Brilliantly so if so.
As stated above, the story is well paced. The main characters are really well developed; the minor characters, even though one appears only briefly, are almost like you can understand them. The dialogue is absolutely, positively, 100% hilarious. As I wrote the author in a private email, the last paragraph in the story saw me spitting out coffee on my keyboard because I was caught unaware while reading. Almost ruined it. The keyboard, that is. And the proofreading was flawless. Grammar was perfect; diction ditto; homonymic errors non-existent.
There is a whole lot more that I could say, but it would be a spoiler and I don't want to do that. Read it instead. And enjoy. Especially those of you who, like me, enjoy flipping the bird to AFs.
