India as a character was incredibly attractive to me. At first she seems standoffish; which she is, but eventually she warms to Tegan in spite of herself. I think I just loved India because there was so much more to her than what see during our first impressions. By the second half of the novel I don't think there is a lesbian on the planet who wouldn't want to be romanced by India.
The thing I am most impressed with in this novel is the treatment of Tegan. I've read a few other authors who have courageously attempted to give their characters some kind of condition that limits their ability to function in the world. Very few have dived in quite like this. Due to an accident she had as a teenager, Tegan requires crutches to walk. If she isn't careful she could be laid up in bed for days or worse, the hospital. She spends most of her time writing romances and dreaming of something she never expects to have, a girlfriend who stays the night and is there everyday.
This was awesome. I really felt Tegan's pain and admired the strength and humor in which she approached life. At first glance I thought that India would intimidate her, but that never happened. She more than held her own in all of their interactions.
There was plenty of great dialogue in this novel. As a reader I love well written dialogue and have to applaud the author for writing several great scenes. On top of that there are quite a few rich secondary characters who each had just enough personality so that you could get a sense of who they were and what their relationship with India is like. Also...I thought the naming of all the characters was great. :)
Editing was a small issue in the book. A few mistakes like missing the letter 'T' in the word 'the' would pop up. Its a minor complaint because I was never taken out of the story. I also could have done without the major threat that was presented in the second half of the book. The first half was light hearted and fun, while the second half was darker and I felt like the two halves were slightly disjointed. I kind of wish the laughs had continued.
Still this is a 5 star book for me. I really loved the sweet relationship between India and Tegan and I think without a doubt that I will read this author again.
I'm usually pretty lazy about writing reviews but since I found the reference about reviews hilarious in the book, I just couldn't resist writing one. I hope that doesn't mean that I'm acknowledging I'm a "monkey with a computer".
I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved the story and the dynamics between the main characters, India and Tegan. It's great to come across characters that are not portrayed as physically or emotionally perfect; this doesn't remove anything from the "romance" aspect of the book.
Although there're some emotionally heavy parts in the book, there's this sense of humor that just had me laughing most of the time. I also liked learning more about some of the challenges involved with writing novels and surviving as a writer- I'm pretty sure this is one of those books I'll end up reading more than one time.
Looking forward to reading other books by this author.
I would love to go on and on, and give you descriptions of the characters and funny little thoughts about this book. However, I am NOT a writer. I do dabble, but I would never dream of writing a review that is wholly worthy of this creative masterpiece. This book is definitely worth small price. It was something that I didn't know I had been looking for until I began to read it. I would recommend this book above almost all of the others I have ever read. Seriously, it was that good.
If you love books, lesbians, writing, or are just wanting something a bit different, in a good way, I highly suggest you make this purchase.
My only hesitation came with the sprinkling of typos that made it to ePub. (Was like watching a perfect 10 performance in figure skating fall to a 9.7 because of a slight technicality.) However, I'll stand by the 5 star rating and will seek out more of KJB's work.
