No Eyes rides on to a roadhouse where, unable to find a prostitute to his liking, he hits the road again. In the middle of nowhere he finds a gorgeous woman standing in a trance. He gives her a lift and it's love at first contact. They have sex, get married in Vegas and have more sex. The woman escaped from "white slavers" and I was kind of hoping they were hot on her trail and I would get to see our hero emptying their eye sockets or at least kicking the snot out of them. This story was pitched to me as an action-adventure by the author, after all.
Nope, onto a commune and then a guru in Los Angeles. Not much happens except for some expositional passages on politics, religion and the author's beliefs regarding science. We also learn that No Eyes' motorcycle Pegasus (good name for a bike)is an incredible alien-built vehicle which came from the UFO that crashed in Roswell, NM.
The religion espoused is an amalgamation of all the major religions--those on the highest plane of consciousness realize that Jesus is really the same as Allah, Buddha, the Hindu gods and all the rest. This used to be called New Age but I'm not sure what the current label is.
It wasn't clear until at least 2/3rds of the way through that this is set at some point in the future. The war on terror has been going on since before No Eyes was ever born (he's in his 20s, I'd guess), and will probably never end. There are some Orwellian undertones...at least if Orwell's works were rewritten my Michael Moore and Janine Garafalo. But aside from the bike (which doesn't really count, since it is of ET manufacture), there were no other technological advancements to make it obvious this was a futuristic tale.
The haphazard switching between present and past tense in the narration was distracting. In places, the prose uses texting shorthand. R U serious? The absence of conflict throughout is also a problem. I guess you could argue that a road trip is an adventure, but there certainly was no action.
The author requested I read and review this book, and provided a free copy for same. As much as I empathize with other indy authors, I am honest in my reviews. This story was not my cup of tea.
Shady Patron 1: Who's that guy?
Shady Patron 2: They call him No Eyes because he cuts his enemies eyes out with a ice cream scooper.
OK, so it's actually a grapefruit spoon. While I admit that's a pretty tough thing to be known for, that little exchange is the closest we come to seeing No Eyes in action as he promptly hops back on his bike and self-righteously sets off on his adventure to... well, nowhere. His lack of a clearly defined goal is probably the story's greatest downfall. The book could best be described as experimental fiction, as it lacks the basic structure associated with conventional storytelling. Because of this the story is quickly lost in the lack of a plot. The book, like his flying motorcycle, goes nowhere fast.
the entire book and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for something differnt, unusual and very entertaining. In fact, loved it!Jennifer's Choice
Stopped at a Po-lice roadblock by a vicious, enormously fat hog-faced Sergeant with a mouth like a giant ass-hole, No Eyes makes a fool of him, and then soundlessly rides off.
No Eyes has good cold beers and lukewarm conversations with three faded stinkweed flower females of easy virtue, at biker hangout Mom's Place. Nothing happens, but before long he meets beauteous Terra, rescues her from white slavers, and takes her with him. They fall in love, become lovers, and No Eyes realizes he has found what he has always been looking for. And more.
Next it's on to Reverend Love's Las Vegas Chapel Of Love, where they get married. The bride and groom kiss, and then keep on kissing, but it's all right now, because they are married.
The ebook cover shows beauteous Terra, No Eye's lover and wife, and Pegasus, his hitech fire-engine red motorcycle.
Night blooming Jasmines perfume the air as they effortlessly cross the desert under Luna's silver light, locked tightly together on Pegasus, like God and Goddess in Heaven.
Morning finds them in California, the golden state, where oranges grow like weeds, and gold can still be found, on their way to all green, free love Morningstar commune, for rest, relaxation, and more loving.
Wow! Thinks No Eyes in the commune, if I had known married life was this good, I would have tried it sooner.
The California adventures continue on. No Eyes meets his spiritual Master, and finally there is a wonderful surprise ending.
This ebook by experienced author and editor Phil Duke is very well written. The prose flows smoothly, characters are well developed, and the exciting adventure and romantic actions take place in fascinating American locations.
If you liked the Adventures Of Indiana Jones, you will love The Adventures Of No Eyes. I highly recommend it, and give it Five Stars.
