No Souvenirs is a well researched gay story .... the descriptions of scuba diving, medical emergencies and yes the all pervasive sex show KA Mitchell's attention to detail..... but the storyline and the characters didn't capture my attention in the way some of her other writings have done - Chasing Smoke for instance.
Did I find the story compelling? ..... not really, I guess I found Jae Sun Kim, one of the two main characters really hard work and at times the story seemed to skip over vital detail - just how, for instance, did the dive boat come to leave two guys under water so consigning them to probable death?
Would I re-read the book - yes, if only to see why I didn't relate to it in the way I usually do
And the sex? Well sex came so fast that I found it lost its freshness rather like most intimate gay sex films.
BUT then you may love 'No Souvenirs' from page 1..... if so great!
