Slave To The Machine is a novel by Aishling Morgan aimed squarely at the male market, and young males at that. Itâ€™s full of all the things that make your trousers stir, page after page of it.
It quickly becomes apparent that it is set in a virtual world where nothing is quite what it seems and the individuals that the bookâ€™s central character â€œMelodyâ€ encounters are there as part of a machiavellian plan formulated by an unseen puppet master.
Because the scenario is both fantasy and not even bound by the laws of the real world the author, Aishling Morgan, is able to take liberties with the behaviour, morals and physical appearance of all the characters. Luckily, apart from the obscenely single minded â€œTeddyâ€, that doesnâ€™t get in the way of a series of utterly filthy scenarios that follow each other thick and fast as the book progresses.
As each chapter goes by, Melody is submerged deeper into the world she has been forced to inhabit. Her virginity juxtaposed against her artificially increased sexual desire is used throughout the book to ensure that vaginal sex is not an option and masturbation, oral sex and anal sex are all employed as Melody preserves her hymen against all odds.
The variety of scenarios is good, only limited by the progression of the story and the scenarios that are introduced through the bookâ€™s 250 pages. There is an overtone of BDSM with a repeated use of spanking scenarios which become more intense as Melodyâ€™s vaginal virginity faces increasing risk of being taken away from her.
The story overall is a great vehicle for a novel and one that has been used pretty well. Although fantastic in nature this facilitates the story, making it possible to construct the very naughty situations that Melody is put in by her invisible captor, rather than jarring with the reader. The resolution owes much to Vanilla Skies and Phillip K Dickâ€™s “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale” (Made into the 1990 film Total Recall) but it is not unsatisfying and I felt myself envying Melodyâ€™s final fate.
As for the bookâ€™s ability to arouse, apart from â€œTeddyâ€ it presses all the right buttons. You can read Slave To The Machine a few pages at a time for swift gratification, or in longer sessions and, let your mind imagine what filthy scenario Melody will encounter next.
A very good horny read.
