Editorial Reviews

Review

Graceful, smart, soulful and sexy, Indigo’s novel would surely top Oprah’s Book Club list...if her list included steamy erotica. -- Toys in Babeland

I felt that I'd found friends, lovers, and teachers in the characters who populate these shimmering tales. -- Clean Sheets Magazine, February, 2002

These were my bedtime stories every night for two weeks ... -- Erotica Readers Association, March, 2002

This is one of those books that writers like me crave - the kind of book where you're marking pages and phrases, and getting inspiration and ideas all the time. I don't write erotica, but if I did, this is what I'd want to write. Sexy, spare, meaningful, humorous, and with a flow that makes you want to re-read it as soon as you're finished.

What a great surprise this book was. Not just sexy, but deep and smart and even funny. It is so far from normal 'erotica' that it's hard to describe, but I'm recommending it to everyone. It really should be on mainstream reading lists, in spite of all the explicit sex.

I bought this for my wife, because I heard that it was the kind of erotica that both heterosexual women and men would like, together. After looking through it, I had to read it first, because I couldn't wait to share it for Christmas. It's very elegant and classy, but still down and dirty. The women are strong and smart, the men are honestly drawn and appreciative of women who are strong and smart, and they're all having the kind of exploration of sexuality that I would like to have in my life. 5+ stars for entertainment and enlightenment!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Author Susannah Indigo has written much more than an erotic novel with "Oysters Among Us" - although it will certainly awaken sleeping libidos! It disturbs me no end that this book is defined and marketed as "erotica" and limited, as such, to a smaller reading audience. While there is nothing wrong with erotica, per se, there is so much more than sex with a superficial plot in "Oysters." And the narrative is composed of just plain good writing...magical prose! Pleasure here is not limited to flesh alone.

Set at the beginning of this millennium, the novel consists of thirteen interlocking stories about a group of characters who are either family, friends, lovers, and the children of the above. Most live in Boulder, Colorado. A few live in San Francisco and travel to Boulder, or visa versa, to be with their loved ones. Together they explore their lives, loves, fantasies, dreams, (one of the characters is a psychotherapist), their potential for joy, and the limits of desire. These people just shimmer with life and together they celebrate the human identity. "The most important sin I observe every day," says Madelaine, "is the failure to imagine and live out your very own life as it was meant to be." Pain and regret often accompany delight and pleasure, and Ms. Indigo explores the darker side of the human experience also.

Graceful, quirky, poignant, funny, very sensual, at times perverse, the stories just flow. Their very structure is fluid, and they will catch the reader up from page one. The characters are wonderful, unique/unusual, and well developed. They all interact throughout the book, no matter who is primary in the particular tale or chapter.

This is a very entertaining book! It's very different from other erotica books. It's more like a real novel about real people, except that theres lots of great sex in it! My favorite story was 'Blue Rooms' about the couple who meet on-line and then she hides in the closet. I wished this book never ended and want to read more!!

My girlfriend gave me this book for Hanukkah, saying she loved it and it had a really sexy Jewish guy in it. And it did, bless the writer's heart! Middle-aged Jewish sexy guy even..... it may just be the season, but I found this book to be the most joyful bit of sex-writing that I have ever read. I see other comments here that people read it twice right away, and so will I, because I'm sure I missed thinmgs. This book is just ...glorious in its inspiration, sexiness, and the ability to share the parts of it with a woman.

I love these stories, especially the ones featuring the lesbian couple with the girl who was afraid to swim until she was naked at the mall enough, and the Barbies around the equator, and then I cried at the 'Sex Quest story. A very beautiful and touching book.

This is a gorgeous, unique book, full of sex scenes and real people, friendship and dreams, sort of a Sex & the City but with real types of people. Highly recommended
