Taboo leaves a haunting thought on love..,
By A Customer
This review is from: Taboo (Mass Market Paperback)
Although the plot needs a few details to enhance its credibility, the entire story is beautifully presented to its finale - love that is so painfully beautiful that it is a sin to love as much. It leaves a slightly disturbing view of what is left of us when loves consumes so much of us that there is little left when it's gone. This is the kind of love many of love yearn for in love, willing to exchange to have it. Life may very well be the price to pay to have it. This is all states beautifully with the quote: "When love comes, you plunge without thinking. You see that your life was an empty shell before love came, so you turn your back on the past without a second thought. And then, when the world comes back to claim its own, there's no way to fight it, because you have no heart to endure loneliness anymore. You've thrown it away, like a child throwing away a paper toy." Again, Gage has written something of a fiction that is a little beyond just a story.. always nice to have something to think about after reading a book.
