Simply amazing! I fell in love with this short story! It is so realistic and the sex is so real! I cannot believe that a woman had written such eloquent and exquisite lines almost sounding like poetry. This is what a good gay story should be written. It kept me interested all the time and there are no stupid and unwanted parts, Everything was simply amazing. The money I paid for it is definitely worth all and I am so willing to pay for more if this kind of writing is used in a novel or a longer [...]
Nice little sip of a story--would love to read a sequel to see where the relationship goes between Ste and Danny.
3.5 starsIt took me a bit to get into this one. Danny’s world is so gray… for one thing, it rains a lot, but he’s also so deep in his downtrodden and frustrated thoughts. He has a metaphoric cloud looming over him. Moving from the city, back to his small home village, back in with his parents, is not what he had planned for after getting his college degree. He was hoping for bigger and better things, in a more accepting setting. Small town minds have a hard time embracing the gay.When Dann [...]
A really good short story which included issues such as coming out, dealing with small town homophobia, friendship and the frustration of unemployment. I enjoyed the contrast between the thriving gay community life in the big city and the isolation, homophobia and the need to conform in the small town. What really interested me in this story was the class differences and the way in which Danny had changed and out grown his home town, his school mates and even his family in some respects. The onl [...]
I really like it when Kate Aaron is writing about real people and real live. She's a master in finding the right words for that kind of stories - you just have to read "The Rest of Forever" to believe that. Reading her stories reminds me on the atmosphere of some of the best movies of New British Cinema like "Full Monty" or "Beautiful Thing". On the other hand Ms.Aaron is also a master of 'short', so I'm sorry to say that this time it's just too short. It's more like a spotlight on one or two sc [...]
Ok short m/m romance about a guy who can't find work after university, so returns to the small town where he grew up and runs into his homophobic former best friend. While I quite liked the story, the pronoun confusion was extreme and frustrating.
Where the heck is the rest of it? What happened to them? Did they tell Ste's father? Did they move away? So many unanswered questions.
