The story is based on some true historical facts. Those are very well described through the story.
I love the erotic and sensual atmosphere through the story.
It's very well thought.
mother and a Belgian father.
The meshing of the contemporary story of Johan and the life in Bali in
1906 may confuse some readers. This story has a supernatural twist
which turns out to be quite funny.
The history of Bali is well treated in this novel but I have also
learned a lot about contemporary Indonesian culture.
It is the story of coming to terms with oneself, as well as accepting
those around you for who they are.
This book is a wonderful example of Justin Sanebridge's considerable
skill as a master storyteller.
The ear fetish reminds me of the Japanese writer Murakami’s book, but
Sanebridge expands on it and makes this ear fetish not only sexually
interesting but intriguing and funny.

For the careful reader there is much to enjoy not least a healthy contempt for authority, the hedonistic lascivious enjoyment of life’s sexual pleasures through an ear fetish, the celebration of life’s many colourful characters and the acceptance of one’s destiny which in this case takes Johan the central figure in the story from one world in the establishment circles of Belgium to the oriental Indonesian life in his mother’s ancestral home of Bali.
Karma plays its part in directing a well-established, highly successful self-made lawyer from Belgium to the exotic Far East with its cultural richness – a parallel historical struggle in 1906 against Dutch domination and suppression – as well as contemporary corruption and the failure of human efforts at justice only to be redressed through karma.
I couldn’t put the book down which says a great deal about the author’s story telling skills and polished delivery of amazing characters, flawed individuals and the common denominator of the human condition be that in the heady heights of the Belgian establishment at one end or the Balinese Indonesian struggles across and between the caste system of Bali at the other.
