“Epic tale of a mysterious man in search of peace, love and eternal…”

ChameleonChameleon by Layden Robinson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the third finished publication of Layden Robinson’s I have read and it has now become even more clear to me that this author’s imagination is roaming free on every topic. I won’t go making any other assumptions here, but I like how every line, every paragraph, every page and every story has a contradicting aspect of beauty and ugliness, of realism and fantasy, of philosophical ponderings and point blank vulgarity.

Here’s a sentence I really liked from “Chameleon”

Nothing comes from destroying sandcastles of solace that were created as a symbol of love. Nothing comes from negativity. Nothing comes from wickedness.

Sure, the themes and style might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but in “Chameleon” I felt as if I was taken on a strange journey. The writing appealed to me in so many ways, even if it did make me uncomfortable and cringe- I still felt as if so much of real humans was put into each idea by doing some close observation. Not to mention the fact that when surroundigs were described- yeah, I could totally picture them, live into it.

If for no other reason, if you’re afraid of taboos- let this story pull you in for the sake of experiment. I doubt you will be bored! 🙂

  1. Oh man, these books keep getting more and more promising! You made me so curious now that I will try to fit in one of his next week (this schedule thing is practical, but really gets in the way of spontaneous reading bursts!), seeing the books are relatively short, right? 🙂
