The BookViral Review:
An unexpected rush, the urgency of brilliance. THE OMNIPOTENT is so boisterously entertaining you may want to read it again and again!
A novel that is less about plot than it is about character, and the twisted logic of screwball humour, in which everybody acts the craziest just when they’re trying to make the most sense, there’s nothing tired or formulaic about Anderson’s writing.
The Omnipotent isn’t just a cracking head trip and bitingly funny (especially if you like your humour politically incorrect). It’s richly detailed, written by an author with a license for flamboyance who not only knows his material inside out but knows how to turn it into a good yarn to boot. In short, Anderson’s novel is one of those rare novels you read and are actually worth remembering!
The main strength of Anderson’s novel is the incomparable Treyton Templeton. He’s such a wonderfully vivid character, capable of holding the reader’s attention whilst delivering wholly sublime one-liners, that it is near on impossible to tire of him. Intent on the completion of his “Around The World In Eighteen Slays” it’s not at all hard to imagine Anderson allowing himself a dirty giggle as Templeton moves from one colourful character to another in pursuit of his goal whilst refreshingly sidestepping anything that is politically palatable!
But what makes The Omnipotent so special is the absolute precision of Anderson’s writing, which manages to both follow the formula of a murderous crime romp but stays true to the Gay Fiction genre.
Simply superb, with appeal far broader than its genre, The Omnipotent proves a refreshingly original and highly enjoyable read. It is unreservedly recommended!
