This review is from: Jumbo (Kindle Edition)
A story of a guy with a tiny dick and a complex about it is not the stuff gay wet dreams are made of. But this story is a winning one because Jumbo, its unlikely and sarcastically named hero, is a real human being and his mixture of self-confidence as a successful swimmer, and insecurity because he is not well endowed, is entirely credible and portrayed with sensitivity and an acute observation of human psychology. The story is a love story but, if its ending in inconclusive, that too is no more than a reflection of life. This is a snapshot of the lives of late teenagers and the mix of testosterone, cockiness, lust - and insecurity - as well as the interface between the teenagers and their equally (and credibly) dysfunctional adult relatives, are memorable.
