As a previous reviewer said on here, a book can sometimes push just the right buttons with a reader. This is one such book. It starts out as a what may seem like the usual case of unrequited love with Andrew trying to work out the age-old 'is he or isn't he' of his friend Sean. But this story then goes way beyond that; I lost count of the many 'wow' moments as the next parts of the plot unfolded.

Set in a brutal era some time in the future where the softness of love is intertwined with the harshness of slavery it managed to bring a whole host of feelings to the fore. There is the odd moment of titillation, then those where you feel as though you shouldn't really be titillated; then some graphic descriptions of acts of inhumanity that some readers may wish had not been laid out quite so clearly but, in the end, this is needed to wrap you up completely in the story you are being told. Nothing, in my opinion, is redundant.

As for the final chapter, I was at a bit of a loss at the start (you'll see why if you read it but to tell you now would be a spoiler) but I just had to work out what it was all about. And then the final 4 words - wow.

I really enjoyed this book. I wish I was just starting it.

A DISH SERVED COLD is one of those stories that can push buttons with the readers. For me it pushed all the right buttons. At the foundation of this world there's a slavery system that is born from trying to do good but gradually disintegrated into a full-fledged game of corrupt power play. It challenged my morals, it engaged a spectrum of emotions and from start to finish the author held me riveted to the pages what was to befall the main protag; Andrew.

Andrew was a normal teenager of fifteen years old; hormones raging, spending all his time with a few good friends and living a privileged life of the rich. Even though it all started a bit as an easy-to-read coming of age story where crushes and struggles were the main events, it slowly turned more serious and edgier. Andrew was confronted with problems that challenged his own outlook on life and I was fascinated by the internal dilemma's it presented. As the story progressed he grew in to a character of depth because what was right and what was wrong? I love complex characters or situations and Andrew Ashling definitely searched for the boundaries.

Personally, I don't think I will forget chapter ten anytime soon. In it a conversation took place that conveyed such details that it shocked my emotions in an uproar of anger and fear. I was preparing for a lot but the author managed to deliver a surprising plot point which kept me on the edge of my seat. The authors writing and characters kept me immersed in all that was going on and felt. Because, whether friend or foe, each character added a distinct voice to the overall story.

I thought the budding romance intense and in the end well rounded but I could have used more one on one time between Andrew and his love interest.

Okay, let me be blunt. This is a trashy thing to read... In the best way possible.

Believe me or not, this is up to the reader. Do not read if you want pure romance, as it gets relatively smutty without being a porno read.

This book deals with several issues, although most are not present in the real world as we know it... But nothing stops issues such as these arising.

Enjoy this as a piece of pure fiction. For the price, just enjoy it. Not Shakespearean, but doesn`t pretend to be.

So badly written as if the writer had just left school and was trying their hand at a porn novel but had'nt grasp the basis idea of characterisation and colour. Spiritless prose that is mundane and has no sparkle. There is no enlargement of the characters so the end result is a lifeless, dull story that does not encourage any further reading. If this is meant to be absorbing then the writer has failed, a zombie could have written a better book. Regretably the is my second bad experience of Kindle books, not very encouraging. Am seriously considering if I should bother anymore?
