О книге

Это история о современном Казанове, жизнь которого — затхлый пруд, ставший шумным водопадом, когда его объявили в розыск. Мечась по улицам Парижа, он обдумывает свою жизнь и пути в нее не вернуться. Этот поиск сталкивает его с такими же беглецами, как и он сам, и обнажает его беспринципность и незрелость, которые он еще вчера называл мальчишеством и шармом. Он листает свое дерзкое прошлое, одновременно пополняя скомканными, а вскоре и пропитанными кровью страницами историю своей любви к жизни. Книга была написана и опубликована на языке оригинала 2013 году на Amazon, спустя 6 лет ее наконец-то перевели на русский язык.

Книга публикуется в авторской орфографии и пунктуации

https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R2GNIY9TJYTEGN/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00ECJH0US February 6, 2013 Shocking? At times. Controversial? You bet. Based on real events but with a plot full of improbable twists and turns, this book is organically contemporary. Nowadays, when thanks to certain bestsellers, phrases such as «Whoa» and «Holy cow» have become the new language of erotic expression, this author deserves recognition for his bravery and audacity in exploring the darker side of human nature with wit, humor and ability to engage. Hats off to him for taking this sexually charged mischief to a higher literary level. A modern fairy tale this is not. This page turner is a provocative satire on sex, relationships and life’s curve-balls.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R3KKRUK3XI2Y3Y/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00ECJH0US February 6, 2013 If you are a contemporary thinker, open minded about your sexuality...this book IS for you. As a former Dental Assistant, I roared my way through the similarities of the offices I worked in for over 33 years, and Oliver Pearl’s story. Filled with interesting analogies, this book is a must read for the contemporary, sophisticated reader. I highly recommend it for everyone in The Dental Field, and ALL who want to tap their deepest inner feelings. Oliver Pearl has the great gift of keeping the reader from wanting to put this book down, before completing it. I love this book to the core. The fact that it is going into The OSCARS GIFTING EVENT 2013, tells me everything I need to know. That in itself is a hard Kudo to come by...and moving onto THE EMMY’S GIFTING 2013, totally solidifies that honor.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R16D87X85D9V5Y/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00ECJH0US April 4, 2013 Whenever an emerging author releases his or her first novel, inquisitive readers’ ears perk up with interest. We never know who will develop into the next popular, prolific story weaver. People are now watching author Oliver Pearl. Supposedly based on actual events, this book comes forward from the avalanche of new novels entering the market, and the author has high hopes that Suggestive Books can give the book a boost in the market. Whether the book becomes popular or not, the author has achieved a noteworthy debut. Judging any author by their first novel seems like skating on thin ice because time may prove that the book ultimately fails to reflect the author’s talent or style. Many authors would dearly love to rewrite (or bury) their first published work, depending on how their careers pan out. Their feelings also sometimes colored by reader feedback. What they write about and their wordsmithing have everything to do with the public’s opinion. Pearl opts to enter the publishing world by delving into the Fifty Shades of Grey milieu with what he describes as «an erotic novel that offers plenty of laughing gas.» Yet, few people were laughing when The Last Gentle Dentist was chosen to be part of the Oscar gift bags and autographed copies were given away to over 200 Hollywood stars, producers, and directors on Feb 22, 2013 in the 85th Oscars gift suite. Pearl’s publicist literally reached for the stars with that promotional coup, and there’s little doubt that a story about a modern-day Casanova wandering the streets of Europe and invading the lives of lovers steeped in drugs and illicit sex will strike home with Hollywood denizens. Pearl deserves one star for completing the task of writing a book and pushing the project through the myriad hoops required to catapult from PC to publisher. He earns a second star for snagging a well-designed front and back cover. He receives a third star for writing with generally good grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and spelling. He gains a fourth star for constructing the story in well-defined, easy to follow chapters. He wins a fifth star for tailoring a tale that will be appreciated by some readers of his niche. THE LAST GENTLE DENTIST may not appeal to everyone. The author seems to reach too quickly for the worst kind of profanity, which — arguably — may befit the wanton type of characters his protagonist encounters, but which will be a turn off to many. The author sometimes hits yet sometimes misses proper comma use in serial sentences, and he often elaborates into extremely long run on sentences. On the other hand, he has a talent for reaching for extraordinarily expressive words and word phrases. The author’s first person present tense writing style takes some time to grow on you, if you can embrace that trendy style that always makes a book read like a screenplay adapted into a novel: «I walk into an alley. Thorny with stabled scooters, it leads into the predatory drone of Champs Elysees. Second hour into the night, it is full of strollers, mimes, Eastern European beggars and Middle Eastern thieves moving away and toward the sea like schools of horse mackerel, fished out in numbers by kiosks, restaurants, and street acts. That’s the place to be, the place to flip high the coin of petty anxieties and never catch it again, the place you can choose to leave or avoid, but once caught by the glimpse of its cockeyed smirk will be deprived of your volition and thrown into its heathenish mirth.» Few writers can control first person present tense writing without veering off into minutia that detail what the main character does and thinks every minute, which also causes a problem with the story’s pacing. You also highly suspect that authors writing in this style might be writing about their life as they wish their life had unfolded, and so they drown the reader in trivial points that mirror their self-fascination. We sometimes wonder why emerging authors so often reach for gimmicks that are all the rage, such as profanity, gratuitous sex, and odd writing styles. Perhaps they are merely trying to draw attention to themselves with shock values. Yet in most cases — as with Pearl’s — these cheap devices are entirely unnecessary. He has obvious talent, a genuine propensity for imaginative visualization, and a penetrating insight into characterizations. In conclusion, Oliver Pearl’s THE LAST GENTLE DENTIST falls short of being a great book, yet makes for a good first effort. We can expect more from him, and we can probably anticipate that he will gravitate toward more uplifting themes. I suspect that he has in him the aptitude to produce a timeless classic one day.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R3PDULARUXXPOF/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00ECJH0US January 11, 2013 From the clever pen of author Oliver Pearl comes The Last Gentle Dentist which is a very good debut novel in the erotic fiction genre, (a genre which is mostly populated by female authors.) Refreshingly enough, the book speaks more to a male audience than female audience. (It’s time men got their own Fifty Shades…) and takes the reader on a wild romp that starts in San Francisco and leads the reader thru the narrators somewhat raunchy and sexually explicit life — the fact that the book is based on true events made it hard to put down and made me wonder where the line between real life ended and fiction began. The book is well written and I can’t help thinking that its the kind of book most men would find as a satisfying read. The ending leaves the door open for the sequel and it will be interesting to see what Mr. Pearl does for his second act.
