So this morning when I woke up, head angrily pounding away, I sighed, took meds, and pulled out my Kindle. I'd downloaded "Man Enough" a few days ago and, having finished another book last night, this one was next up in my reading list. And I spent all day with such a delightful story that I very nearly forgot I was supposed to be suffering. Now, I figured I knew what was going to happen, and for the most part I was correct. But the ride was so enjoyable that it mattered not I knew its destination. Ms Burnett has written characters so full and rich I felt like I already knew them. Their dialog was believable, and though they were witty and often funny, they didn't suffer from that modern affliction of being Clever Clever: you know, those impossibly witty characters who speak so brightly that you'd never meet anyone like them in real life. I found myself highlighting several sections that I particularly liked until it seemed like half of the book was yellow. The plot was one I had not read before and I was delighted to have this new window on life. It brought up difficulties many don't consider, and was so sensitive in its handling of the story that you can't help but really feel for everyone involved. Well, except for a couple of side characters (2 Dicks and a Dickless) who you are not supposed to like anyway, and even they were (unfortunately) believable. That she was able to capture that heady feeling of falling in love, especially those early days when you aren't sure what's happening, is remarkable.
My greatest disappointment was when I got to the end of the book only to see that this is Ms Burnett's only book. Ma'am, if you see this, when can we see more? I think you may be my new favorite author.
Daveys character was sweet regardless of what some of the other reviewers proclaim. She had a different upbringing, like most of the characters in the book. But yes, I truely loved the relationship she shared with Andy - a very sexy butch. They were friends through and through. She was also a true friend to her mother (Leah) and Lynne even though they were not the easiest people to live with.
Everyone needs to be seen for who they are personally, not their gender. Isn't that what we all want anyway?
Great read - I highly recommmend.
The reader watches as a new relationship unfolds. The main character, via first-person voice - conducts a perfect stream of consciousness. You know Davey quickly as she attempts to sort out her complicated life.
Davey is a straight LGBT staff member with liberal views. She began likeable, and soon became loveable. Witty and engaging, she collects wonderfully zany friends. Her eccentric mother, Leah, also provides humor that is relatable to us all.
The characters mesh with their own crisscrossing clarity. Each contributes to both the dramatic segments, as well as the easy-going conversation. I enjoyed them as their playful dialogue moved the story along. Davey's love interest - Danny; her best-friend - Andy, and her assortment of off-kilter friends are endearing and believable.
Through the twists and turns, I found the book to be educational. Burnett deftly dealt with complex subjects in a thought-provoking way. She expressed everyone's view point, while she brought knowledge with each opinion.
It is a fun read, yet it also explores a serious social topic. I applaud Burnett for writing a book that presents a different perspective of love.
