character portrayal about two men and a woman they love...interesting and provocative
This is a powerful novel about two young men from diverse backgrounds that become friends while attending college. A contemporary coming of age story exploring the relationships between friends, parents and siblings. Demonstrating how ultimately good fundamental values can help one overcome most obstacles in life. It reminded me of F. Scott Fitzgerlad's writing.....lyrical and moody.
This was a great book, well-written and interesting to the end.
A really fine novel, with marvelously complex characters. It's a story of loyalty, friendship, & betrayal--and loyalty in spite of betrayal--and, finally, a story of learning to love and be loved, of learning to be bound to those you love, of learning to be surprised by life, of learning character.
I loved this book when I read it but now it's a little fuzzy. I know my friend let me keep her copy b/c she wasn't as into it as I was.
