Was hoping a tad more for descriptions of Sri Lankan landscape and amena, though.
Recommended to anyone interested in reading about lust, love and the the thin line between the two. An excellent exposition of the inner workings of the human mind. This was first book I read that was about erotica.
I know there is another book in market on the subject called Electric Feather from same publications. Based on few paragraphs friends shared, I decided that book was not for me. But I know erotic stories can be good, I remember I judged a short story contest for Blogadda, it was an erotic story that won since it was so well-written.
I went through lot of dilemma about reception of such a result but since Blogadda guys gave me free hand, I stuck This was first book I read that was about erotica.
I went through lot of dilemma about reception of such a result but since Blogadda guys gave me free hand, I stuck with courage to go with it. This book I picked up, since stories were from Sri Lanka. Well, Sri Lank is exotic to me.
Now, characters were in sarong or osari. Different Sri Lankan exotic words slip in. There are stories about straight love, getting laid, gay love and lesbians in love. It wasn’t awkward to read any one of them, thankfully. Though not all stories weren’t great and poetry was simply passable.
Yet I liked it, since stories were a breeze to read and some of them did rise to occasion.
Interview with Ameena Hussein | the good book corner
There were two writers who contributed two stories each. Tariq Solomons and Sam Perera – both stories contrary in outlook, one is about a straight couple and other about a gay couple.
Chinaman writer Shehan Amerna has also contributed a story, though a sad one. Stories I liked were: No, The Proposal and Bookworm. I think Undercover too deserves a mention. Aug 28, Helmali rated it it was ok Shelves: Well have to give some credit for publishing erotica in Sri Lanka. Good attempt, but could’ve done with a better collection.
Blue: Stories for Adults
Some of the stories were too abrupt. I only liked Shehan Karunatileke’s story out of the collection.
Husssein 08, Nilu rated it it was ok. I would like to think of this collection as a bunch of poems and stories with a strong influence of sex. Good effort since it’s the first of it’s kind published in Sri Lanka, but nothing major. Jun 25, Kaushalya rated it did not like it Shelves: Except for a few stories that are interesting, it is not good. Dec 08, Himmilicious Himmilicious rated it did not like it. It didn’t appeal me.

What struck out the most was the inculcation of lesbian and gay themes and the issue of rape in one of the short stories. Except for stories, most of them seemed a little abrupt, more focused on the depiction of sex rather than a smooth progression of the narrative.
The poems in particular were simply not up to snuff. Overall, it’s not a bad read. You can probably finish the book in a single sitting but just don’t expect anything “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” and yes, that’s not a madeup word!!
Google it if you don’t believe me ; out of it. Jul 22, Dilipickle rated it it was ok Shelves: Shehan Karunatilaka’s story and Coomerene’s poems are memorable.
