MILK is a well-crafted story about Becky, a young girl struggling to cope with tragic and difficult changes, and the thirty-something Mike who drives his car to her rescue in the very first chapter. The writing is superb but refrains from condescending to the reader. It has a sense of minimalism to it that I enjoyed. Every scene, event, and exchange between characters feels vital to the story. You will not find any deadwood in this tale.
To be honest, I don’t particularly enjoy the company of teenage girls in real life. The ones I’ve encountered tend to travel in packs, shriek for no apparent reason, and have no qualms about jumping the queue for the bus. Having said this, I grew to like Becky. At times, she comes across as wise beyond her years. And then you’ll turn the page and discover she is contemplating something endearingly juvenile. She is clever and quite funny. Following her train of thought was an experience I won’t soon forget. I’m certain even the most cynical and hard-hearted readers will find themselves warming up to Becky when they get to know her.
There is a moral in every good story. The moral of this story can be summed in in a quote from the author himself, "Love not, lest ye be loved." It asks some tough questions about relationships and romance, and it compels the reader to ponder the consequences of allowing oneself to fall in love.
Bottomline: MILK is a 5 Star novel.
The story roped me in quickly, mostly, I surmise, because it is so easy to identify with the insecurities and problems that plague Becky. My curiosity remained high throughout. There are some very minor mistakes in grammar and punctuation (but probably no more than this review contains), and the page formatting is a bit odd, but nothing that would impair your ability to read it. Love stories are absolutely not my genre, but I really enjoyed this one. Overall a highly-recommended book.
