  • Pale Winter Sun
    Intriguing, unique, distinctive
    4.4 stars
    Mick Collins' book Pale Winter Sun synopsis from Good reads:
    Isolation in the cold of winter. That's all Mark Jensen has as he fights to survive.
    Living in the small Mormon community of Grason, Idaho, Mark and his best
    friend Trevor have no one but themselves. Both are shunned from their families
    for simply trying to live open and honestly as homosexual. Cold and queer, the
    boys make do with what little they can, counting on no one but themselves in
    the stark Idaho countryside.
    Mark's struggles increase when he becomes afraid of confiding in his last
    friend. The growing realization that he is bisexual confuses and conflicts him.
    It leaves him feeling more alone than ever. Friendships are redefined and
    stretched to the limit as the two young men scratch by and they ask
    themselves; can they survive each other?
    It is very rare to read a book that strays from the normal plotline. Collins' book
    was definitely different from what I normally read, but it was a breath of fresh
    air. The daily struggles the characters face places ideas in a new perspective.
  • People in similar situations as the characters share the same feelings and
    conflicts. To be able to experience that through the characters was intriguing.
    For the most part, people do not realize the struggle that comes for being a
    homosexual. Collins' was able to show the internal conflict not only between
    the character relationships, but also the individual themselves. The atmosphere
    of the book (winter, cold, isolation) compares with the feelings of the two main
    characters. They are considered queer, people are cold toward them, and they
    feel isolated from their community. The storyline was unique and it made it
    stand out. Mark was a strong character in the book. He stayed true to himself
    and it stood out throughout the book.
    The reason it did not get 5 stars was due to the writing itself. The writing style
    was not as refined as some other books, but there is emotion and the message
    is clear. If the writing style was more fine-tuned, then the book would have
    been even more captivating.
