Book Review: Green eyes: An Erotic Novel (Sort of). Michael Ampersant.

Reminiscent of Douglas Coupland, green eyes is humorous, thrilling and erotic. It is the blending of genres. I like the style that this is written in. It’s quite absurd and our narrator, John, seems to be either poking fun at himself or the author Michael Ampersant (or the author poking fun at John) The tenses seem to be all over the shop and I are not sure if something is happening in John’s mind, that of the writer or in the reality of the book. I like how this flows. It is like drops of water falling on one another, joining and bursting. It’s languid. This is also a book about blogging. There are some witty and intelligent observations on this subject. It’s almost a resource for how to start a popular blog. It is brilliant how this is used in the book for criminal baiting.
The bringing together of the end of this book is great fun. Almost like the writer realized he was late for something and had to have it wrapped up quickly in a few sentences. The last chapter is poignant.
This is a perfect book for any adult reader, who’s looking for something other than the usual.
