Seven Types of Ambiguity by Elliot Pearlman, Book Review

Sherwood Forest Bed and Breakfast Book Review

Seven Types of Ambiguity by Elliot Pearlman

Michele's & Sue's book of the month is Seven Types of Ambiguity by Elliot Pearlman. Australian writer Pearlman sets a high bar for himself, and the result is a relentlessly driven story. This is an epic novel about obsessive love in an age of obsessive materialism. The basic thrust of the story is about a man who has never gotten over a woman who left him 10 years before and kidnaps her son. The book is segmented in seven parts, each narrated by a different player in the unfolding drama, with sections and scenes overlapping. The characters are similar and yet different being incredibly insightful, bright, and in tune with the human condition regardless of age, sex, or social standing. This book has awesome magnitude and scope of what is a phenomenal piece of literature.
