The Princess & The Penis Review
The Princess & the Penis by R.J. Silver
Satire in the form of a light princess tale! I love it! This isn't a thought provoking satire, but it is a fun story that touches upon innocence and shielding children from the world. I really enjoyed Silver's take on a typical princess tale that features a penis, or a lump in the rump.
He blocked all love songs fromm reaching her ears, all romantic stories from passing before her eyes, and even made it a crime to discuss such matters with her.
Whimsical Writing Scale: 4
The characters are outlandish and fun to read about. There are characters that are showcased in most fairy tales- protective father, a queen who is there, but not really there, a wizard, a priest, and a prince disguised into something else because of a curse.
Character Scale: 3.5
This plot was fun and I highly recommend it because penis innuendos are funny. Plus I giggled quite a bit. This is one of those books that I wouldn't have discovered if it wasn't for Goodreads. Plus it's free and under 100 pages. A perfect read for a rainy day.
Plotastic Scale: 5
Cover Thoughts: The cover is horrible, but the title is definitely going to drawn people in.
This book is free on Amazon and I highly recommend purchasing it.
