5.0 out of 5 stars Addicted to this series By ocmd VINE VOICE on July 3, 2015 Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase I loved the first two books in the Harem Boy s Saga and I devoured book three just as eagerly. Debauchery is a seamless transition in the author s amazing journey, and I admit I am now addicted to this series. Correspondence in 2012 supplements the story as Young relates his experiences and feelings in 1967. He was a young boy when he flew to London to meet his beloved Valet, Andy. They d been apart for eight weeks, and they missed each other desperately. Once they were together again, they could not wait to give in to their passion. Their reunion captivated me. I became totally involved with the characters and emotionally invested in their story. The journey moves on to the French Riviera, and other exotic locations that are so well described, I felt like I was there. Young and Andy become part of a royal household and all the joy and sadness of their taboo lifestyle is related with honesty and in a wonderfully engaging style. Knowing the story was true only made it more compelling. There was no way I could put it down. Kudos to the author for letting us share his journey of self-discovery. --Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5 stars Sexuality infused with spirituality! By Bella Swann Erotica on July 25, 2016 Format: Kindle Edition A remarkable tour-de-force erotic novel by Young! This is not a truncated erotic short story but a full-blown erotic bildungsroman in which the main character, Young, travels all around the world, as a member of a secret society called E.R.O.S. Young has many sensual and explicit erotic encounters as he is also exposed to literature, art, philosophy, and spirituality all at the same time. This memoir juxtaposes the past (1967) with the present (2012-13) as the narrator contrasts his experiences as a naïve young man with the older and wiser adult he becomes. Each chapter begins with a thought-provoking epigraph that gives a general sense or feeling to what the story within that chapter connects back to. This novel takes the reader on an erotic experience that is savoured and enjoyed not rushed through prematurely. Young's words have an ethereal and lyrical quality to them even in his descriptions of explicit sexual encounters. I am truly impressed by the quality of this erotic novel and absolutely recommend it to those who wish to read explicit erotica interwoven with a metaphysical consciousness. --Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars By J Phillips on January 28, 2016 Format: Kindle Edition Wow. I wasn't quite sure what to expect with The Harem Boy's Saga series, but I'm quickly liking what I'm reading. Young offers a tale inspired by his own youth, and the adventurous perils of various Middle Eastern Society Harems. He started out privileged, then being accepted into the Arabic elite, to find love in curious places. His tale is and was controversial in and of its time and reveals a world unknown to most Americans like myself. I congratulate author Young for his work. 5 stars. --Amazon Reviews

Young alias Bernard Foong is, first and foremost, a sensitivist. He finds nuance in everything. To experience the world, he inhabits is an adventure which is mystical, childlike and refreshing. He has a rare ability to create beauty in a unique fashion. His palettes have been material, paint, words and human experiences. By Christine Maynard (screenwriter and novelist).
