Green Eyes or Brown?
2% of people on this planet have green eyes.

Seeing this Fact, I wondered how important it was for authors to specify their characters’ eye colour, so took a look through TSL’s books to see what our authors have done. The result is below. Do you think it’s important to specify eye colour or should that be left to the reader’s imagination?

In a break from green eyes, brown eyes are mentioned in The Stillbirth Marriage in The Roots that gave Birth to Magical Blossoms by Nuna Agib (Bit Nafisa)
Doris Lessing’s lead character in The Summer before the Dark has brown eyes.
