but is reposted here in accordance with the Hydra principle Let me start by presenting the review itself An Uncommon Whore Or, The Story of Goodreads Acquisition by by Belinda McBride Goodreads Author FLAG I am actually quite enthusiastic about reading this one it looks enjoyable but I really couldn t resist using the title for my own sordid little joke Mark encouraged people to flag his review, and I enjoyed doing so I pointed out that it violated Article 2 vii of the ToU, since it contained incorrect information An Uncommon Whore, I went on to say, is about someone who gets fucked up the ass for money, and has nothing to do with the acquisition of Goodreads byIndeed, Goodreads is not even mentioned.In case anyone missed it, that was ironic Mark s review was funny because, at a non literal and metaphorical level, there are indeed meaningful parallels between the acquisition of Goodreads byand getting fucked up the ass for money I can t resist the temptation to elaborate.The received wisdom, at the moment, is that it is wrong to treat people as sex objects But, speaking from personal experience, it isn t always bad to be treated as a sex object it can indeed be very gratifying to feel, briefly, that you are merely a thing that your lover is using to obtain sexual pleasure Many people enjoy playing this kind of game, and when it is done in an intimate, consensual way I do not see that there is anything wrong with it The problem is that it shades over into behavior that becomesandclearly wrong The tension between these different ways of looking at the issues are what this book is about.A couple of other books come to mind here In Musical Chairs , Jen Knox gives a frank account of what it s like to be a stripper To my surprise, she says that it is in some ways an empowering experience The performer, taking her clothes off on stage, has an undeniable power over her audience But Jen also shows how it is ultimatelydegrading than empowering Even though the audience may show their appreciation by putting ten dollar bills in your G string, you feel after a while that this is a compliment you would rather not receive Jen describes how she got out, which was difficult but worthwhile.A still clearer example is Paul Theroux s underrated novel Doctor Slaughter Lauren Slaughter is smart, beautiful and insolvent She is overflowing with self confidence and unsqueamish about sex, so, when she is offered a job as a high priced call girl, she takes it She is soon making a great deal of money getting fucked, up the ass and elsewhere, by a variety of men She thinks she can handle it she feels nothing but contempt for the majority of her clients, she makes friends with a few, she develops a strange, almost loving relationship with one older man who uses her services frequently But as the book progresses, she comes to understand that she has misjudged the situation She is not able to keep her feelings outside it She is just a whore, even if she s an unusually smart and pretty one.So what parallels with GoodreadsI have worked in a Silicon Valley startup myself, and I know the system from the inside A group of people with a common dream put something together and hope they ll make money out of it Sometimes it works Most often, it comes to nothing You generally discover after a while that there aren t many options if you want to see a return on your investment The easiest route is definitely to sell out to one of the multinationals.If you re approached by a big player, your first reaction is likely to be pleasure and relief It was possible, indeed likely, that you were going to get nothing, and now you re looking at millions of dollars Unfortunately, whatever your acquirer may say at first, it usually turns out that their idea of what to do with the startup is rather different from yours At this point, it often dawns on people, particularly the engineers who did the grunt work, that they have given up their dream for a financial reward which seems quite insufficient Comparisons with stripping or prostitution don t appear completely inapposite So, in short, I think I was wrong to say that Mark s brief review was factually inaccurate, unless you take an extremely narrow view of what factually inaccurate means In the language of this book, Goodreads has shown itself to be an uncommon whore.This work by Manny is

    3,5 stars First of all don t judge this book by the title or by its cover This jumps straight into the action and just keeps going Considering the short length a LOT of things happen, and I just allowed myself to get swept away with it all.A prince is rescued, old love is rekindled, new friendships are forged and a kingdom lost in space finds their king again In an interesting mixture of Star Wars and Game of Thrones the author takes us to a different universe where wars are brutal, whor 3,5 stars First of all don t judge this book by the title or by its cover This jumps straight into the action and just keeps going Considering the short length a LOT of things happen, and I just allowed myself to get swept away with it all.A prince is rescued, old love is rekindled, new friendships are forged and a kingdom lost in space finds their king again In an interesting mixture of Star Wars and Game of Thrones the author takes us to a different universe where wars are brutal, whoring seems the norm and grouchy aliens are plentiful.Helios, Lio, is at the centre of the book It is his journey of finding out who he really is, what he was before and did, and what his future holds for him I kind of liked his snarky style of telling his story I liked HIM because he felt genuine and honest particularly with his feelings for Grif the man who finds him The immediate bond between them, right from the beginning, should have felt off, but it didn t Of course we find out later why, but I never doubted the love and sexual chemistry between Grif and Lio The writing style could be criticised for a lack of finesse, but somehow it fitted the story and supported the fast paced action And I enjoyed this fun mixture of science fiction and myths view spoiler and the idea of a remote controlled cock ring had my mind boggling g hide spoiler enough to go and read book 2 now Thanks Katerina

    2.5 Needed More Chastity Stars Space opera The ultimate space opera was the only place my head went only in this rendition Han and Luke would get it on It started off so good We meet Pasha and he s a slave to U shma Slave boys don t get to have erections They are to serve the customers so you know what that means Chastity In case you don t know, I m a fan of chastity A big un Pasha s working one night when the rakish Captain Griffin Hawke He looks like a pirate with the eye patch all 2.5 Needed More Chastity Stars Space opera The ultimate space opera was the only place my head went only in this rendition Han and Luke would get it on It started off so good We meet Pasha and he s a slave to U shma Slave boys don t get to have erections They are to serve the customers so you know what that means Chastity In case you don t know, I m a fan of chastity A big un Pasha s working one night when the rakish Captain Griffin Hawke He looks like a pirate with the eye patch all black leather outfit thing going and he s not very verbal I m dig dig digging it There s some sort of strange connection between the two and the pirate enters into a wager with U shma to win Pasha for 24 hrs Turns out they know each other and Pasha has an odd case of retrograde amnesia About two whole seconds later the chastity came off pause Why is the chastity ALWAYS the first to go WHY I will say the chastity got replaced by quite a bit of frottage so I can t be too fussy Still huffs The space opera begins and there is a ton of world building Several characters are introduced and I ve since learned this is a book one in a series the foundation book Many of the characters seem promising, but I found myself getting increasingly bored as the story progressed Honestly, I think it s a me problem rather than a book problem The writing s good as the story of Helios Pasha unfolds and he gradually regains bits and pieces of his memory Ordinarily, I like anything even remotely having to do with Star Wars but this just didn t resonate with me as much as I was hoping it would

    Don t judge a book by its cover and its title , because this one harbors a surprisingly sweet and engaging story Pasha is a sex slave with no recollection of his past He doesn t know who he was, who he is or who he is going to be, but he does feel there s somethingfor him out there And when a stranger walks into a bar, he knows not to let him slip away And so begins the story of Pasha Helios and Griffin I liked the world McBride created and the plot was engaging and layered The sex Don t judge a book by its cover and its title , because this one harbors a surprisingly sweet and engaging story Pasha is a sex slave with no recollection of his past He doesn t know who he was, who he is or who he is going to be, but he does feel there s somethingfor him out there And when a stranger walks into a bar, he knows not to let him slip away And so begins the story of Pasha Helios and Griffin I liked the world McBride created and the plot was engaging and layered The sex was hot and romantic Plus it served a deeper meaning in establishing the roles in the characters new relationship The best part of the book, however, were the characters themselves Griffin was a great secondary his internal turmoil was palpable and I felt and fell for him But Helios oh my His matter of fact tone in which he relayed his thoughts and actions were fantastic I found him to be very endearing and loved him instantly.A well written and sweet little story I m hoping for a sequel

    This was a really well written story with characters that I felt invested in The sex was awesome and I kept wanting to turn back to the cover to see them there, which doesn t always happen with books For once the descriptions built a picture within my mind that matched the beautiful artwork on the cover Although the ending was a little sappier than I would like, I am excited to hear that there is going to be a second book.
