What the community says about Mind Fuck (The Administration)
- "Mamma Francis’ Mind Fuck fits my interest in LGBT genre fiction that features gay characters but isn’t solely about LGBT life in the present or recent past. This is the best example i’ve Seen yet of a gay novel set in a rich, immersive dystopian setting. Francis’ dapper secret policeman Val Toreth, member of the blandly names but terrifyingly brutal and ruthless Investigation and Interrogations division (IOD) is a fantastic example of a gay character who is not JUST a gay character, and who provides a rich view into the kinds of compromises and mental gymnastics many real humans face, especially in authoritarian countries. As a hard-core Cold War history buff, I have spent a lot of my life reading about secret policemen of one type or another, and it’s clear that Manna Francis put a lot of work into Val and the IID. New London, capital of the European Administration, is a richly layered dystopian setting that feels both imaginative and at times disturbingly familiar. Watching Val and Keri navigate both their growing feelings for each other and the dangerous, complicated dystopian world around them was hugely entertaining, and I will eagerly await any future stories in the same universe."
- "Val Toreth works for the Investigation and Interrogation Division, and is defined at the outset as "one of the worse guys". Keir Warrick is a tech entrepreneur and a natural opponent, but they find themselves attracted to one another as the story progresses. It's a dark setting but one that makes for an exciting read."
- "The reason that I read this book is that I just like different fiction books than the ones that I generally read. Although this book has some gay erotic romance in it, it is not disturbing at all if you are not into these topics. I would recommend if you are looking for a different romance book."
- "I'm not sure it really fits into this category, I mean I don't think the book is really centralized around gay romance. There are a few erotic scenes, but I wouldn't really call it romance. I think the book is more of a mystery type thriller. There is so much going on in that society, it is a different world. I think it was pretty good, and the sex was more of a character development then some cheesy romance."
- "I loved this exciting dystopian adventure, and I especially loved that it had a gay protagonist. Finally, we get the chance to see some representation in a standard, love/hate relationship."
