Dreary and pretentious,
This review is from: Dancer from the Dance (Paperback)
I'm afraid I can't agree with the other reviewers. I found this book to be shallow, over-written and with characters you learned very little about or cared about. The narrative style was stilted - adopting a literary tone that just felt artificial and flowery. You could read page after page with nothing happening and actually forget where you were in the story - not that much actually happens. The lead characters were very two dimensional and I felt absolutely nothing for them and had no interest in what happened to them. Stringing a series of long sentences together in an apparent stream of consciousness simply didn't work. Try 'Faggots' by Larry Kramer if you want a seminal book about this era.
