Edi's journey in love doesn't happen overnight, it goes through some stages, like the moments of the day: dusk, morning, noon, afternoon and dawn. The choices he makes, his stubbornness and also his caring soul shape him to be a wonderful character.
Even though I didn't like the relationship between Edi and Robert (well, I didn't like Robert very much, though I felt sorry for him), it seemed very real and you can feel (or even know) this is a story that happens in real life too.
This being said, Alina Popescu managed to capture and translate into words the precious moments of a lover's journey, with all it's ups and downs, happiness and heartbreaks, clearness and blindness.
I thought this would be a sweet story. Two kids who grow up spending their summers together and falling in love, but I hated Robert. He was a complete Douche! He was so mean, spoiled and selfish. I loved Edi, but I couldn't decide between feeling bad for the way he was treated or being angry at him for continually putting himself back in this situation over and over. I understand loving someone, but making yourself their doormat is a completely different story. In the end, I'm not sure either character has redeemed themselves.
This was a well-written book, but the time periods are very jumpy. It would have worked better if the author had made it clearer as to how much time was between each time change. Either a year at the top of the next scene/chapter or the number of months/years it had actually been.
I loved the secondary characters. The kids from Edi's grandma's small village, as well as his friends from back home. I hope to see more of them, especially Sebastian in the future. I wasn't sure what to make of the ending, but I'm looking forward to seeing where this series goes and hoping everything will get resolved. This was a great, but honestly frustrating read, as they tend to be when you want to kill a MC or two, but still, highly recommended!!
As for Edi and Robert...Robert is a prick, but love is blind. And I know, know, that this reflects a reality a lot of us are very familiar with.
The only thing that I would have liked better would have been a HEA, instead of a HFN, but that doesn't take anything from the pleasure I got from reading this.
Not everyone will like the story, and there are a few taboo in the story, but I felt that damn roller-coaster all the way through and that, to me, makes a book great.
Now that you've read it, take it to heart for it's telling of what this read is all about. A journey two boys take as they grow into themselves. Their life begins on that first meeting, Dawn, and this installment ends when things are seemingly okay but one is left questioning, Dusk. A journey of falling in love, getting heartbroken, and falling in love, or back to love, again.
These lovers' journey takes time to read for it has this tendency to bring back memories that may hurt, or may make you laugh. It calls on emotions similar to elation but at times, anger when things don't go the way they should.
I don't like to spoil the details, for the title says it all. The events that unfold, they begin when Robert and Edi are young and they think and act as young children do. As they grow up, they question their feelings and doubt the sanity of it. Experimentation, questioning, doubting, they go through the gamut of emotions. They hurt, they heal, they are molded into who they are as they finally reach that point in life when they face reality and learn to accept.
This was a difficult read at times, but I love Alina Popescu's style. she always manages to put a twist there somewhere, a change from the norm that makes you cock your head and wonder where she's going to lead us.
As usual, her writing is a joy to read, the question comes in for I don't know where this will lead me, when the next installment comes in. This book ends at dusk, that uncertain time of our lives where it's neither light nor dark and the anticipation for something bigger hangs in the air. What the future brings, well, I'm sure that's going to be another journey we'll have to look forward to.
