The characters were unique personalities. You couldn't help but hope it would all work out. Though this isn't what I would call a feel good romance...it was a romance, just more of a realistic one than most of the people like me enjoy.
If your looking for a good book filled with realistic angst that keeps you wondering where things are going then this is a good book. If you want that feel good. "ahhh" romantic buzz as you drift off to sleep, maybe not so much.
overall it was good...not great,not fantastic, but definitely a good read. then again I like my "ahhh" factor.
1) odd how the 2 guys just had this intensely bizarre bonding conversation over matrixes and Supermen vs. Batman, etc. those 3 pages just left me scratching my head, saying, "what was that all about". 2) the sister's reluctance to be tied to the tutor had potential...reminded me of the movie "parent Trap" when the kids do silly things to get the potential step mom to leave. But, sand in the gas tank? Calling cops to falsely report your brother driving erratically? This boarded on criminal behavior, and I just thought it was extreme in relation to the plot at the time. 3). Neil calling someone he has not seen in 10 years to follow him to the mansion to drop off the drunk car owner, just so he has a ride home? Did not make sense. Call a cab! The drunk friend lives in a mansion and can afford it! So, I hope this review makes sense. I think the writing and plot had potential, but I couldn't see continuing on when certain story lines were too extreme.
My only criticism is that once or twice Neil launches into a detached, clinical analysis of his relationships with the characters. While this may be in keeping with his personality, I felt it reduced some of the emotional impact events in the story may have had.
I do wonder how accessible the book is to those who don't share some of the same experiences as the characters. I myself am gay, struggled with the same financial issues, and have a love for both the internet and classical literature, so the story pushes all of my buttons.
Lastly, the book is free, and I can't say no to a free book anymore than Neil probably could. Definitely recommended.
I agree with another reader that this book was not a light, breezy read, but a more realistic telling of the stops and starts a relationship can go through. It wasn't always a comfortable read, but I stayed interested and by turns rooted for each MC and was torn about which direction they would/should go.
