The Princess and The Clown by Ian Thomas Malone
Goodreads Rating: 2 stars
I was given a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
This book is an erotic satire, of which, I have never read before. I found it difficult to get through. I thought the relationship between Ralph and Jules was…toxic and interesting.
The sex scenes were a bit much, even I could hardly tolerate them. (and I can tolerate just about anything). The satire stems around the fact that both Ralph and Jules are “trailer trash.” Both are deadbeats with no future.
I learned that you can use hot sauce for anal lube. Which is weird, and I am not certain how that is okay for anyone to use. I actually had to stop when I read that to see if that was really a thing. It was definitely new to me. I still cringe thinking about it.
I wasn’t quite prepared for this story. I am sure there are people out there who will find it entertaining. I really enjoy erotica, so I feel this book was kind of a kick to the face and it didn’t make me feel happy. I didn’t connect with the grotesqueness of the characters.
