    Story
    "Ridiculous teen boy's fantasy"
    What would have made The Ultimate Aphrodisiac better?

    If the story was written from a different perspective rather than an immature surfer "dude".


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robert G. Barrett again?

    No. I was looking for something different or unusual. Although, I suppose this did fit the bill. Just not in a good way.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I kept listening with the hopes that something good would evolve from the story. However, it felt like I was trapped in a teen boy's fantasy. The story revolves around free marijuana, unending perfect waves for surfing, pet sharks, hot and easy native women, and annihilating the US military. Oh, and I nearly forgot the ancient aliens that left the spaceships behind.The vocabulary was dreadful ("wanker" and "Nub" for female and male genital respectively really "dude") and the "lame" story went from silly to absurd.


    Any additional comments?

    If I had not paid for this audiobook I would NOT have finished it. Although, if I was a stoned teenage boy I might have loved it.
