4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read..., 18 Jun. 2012

This review is from: Adam: A Sensuous Coming-of-age Tale (Paperback)
This book is very well written, but if you don't understand French have a French to English dictionary to hand as there are a few short dialogues from time to time in French without translation.

Based in France, this follows the story of an English secondary school student, Adam, who lives in France temporarily due to his fathers work.

Adam is a very relatable character for any gay teenager growing up with the confusions, realisations and explorations of their sexuality. His infactuation and adoration of Sylvain, a slightly older lad who leads a simple life, is very well expressed through the authors articulate writing style.

It is a very gripping read, and the erotic scenes are intense. This was a book that was very difficult to put down at times, so I would highly recommend it. Sometimes a little far fectched, but it is fiction after all. The only disappointment is the ending, which I found quite bland and lazy, but I suppose seemed a realistic end to an unrealistic coming-of-age tale.
