A good read!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Latter Days : a Novel, Based on the Screenplay (Paperback)
The story is set around two central characters; Christian, the LA pretty boy, who is seen as 'perfect' by everyone around him, and Aaron, a Mormon missionary who moves in near to Christian.
The twist being that Aaron is gay, but because of his upbringings, and his religious beliefs he won't act on any feelings. Christian, not been someone to be turned down, and a $50 bet riding on him, pushes Christian to keep trying.
Without spoiling the story, I'll just say that things progress quickly.
A lot of the large story arcs are packed into a relatively short book. The interesting characters, and the basic yet enthralling plot are the reasons I've given this book 5 stars.
The only real drawback for me was that there were a lot of plots that seemed to be only looked at briefly before being left behind. This book could have been three times as long, if the major dramatic parts of this story were explored in greater depth.
Still a worthwhile read.
