5.0 out of 5 stars
Intense and well-written, 17 Jun 2001
The first time I heard of this book was when the film was released. Luckily I read it before I went to see the movie. The movie was OK but lacked the intensity and subtlety of the novel. Finally a gay story that's totally different from most of the standard gay fluff. You immediately get sucked into the story only to surface at the end. Amazing!
