The book does have its mix of happiness and sadness. This time of year is tough on me and reading how Tommy misses his mom just makes it all that more profound. I did smile and laugh when Tommy & Ignacio were in PVD and Johnny talked about the river. The watershed that works to maintain this river is where I work. The book also left me longing for friends like Rico & Carlos.
Cannot wait for the next one!!
The light, airy tone of Diaz's latest remains consistent with those previous works, but there's an evolution to the storytelling that reflects the progress by the LGBT community over the last few years -- particularly as it relates to marriage equality. And as I stare down the barrel of forty, the growth of the characters in that regard is also very refreshing.
Diaz once again revisits characters from previous novels. As the reader, you welcome them back with open arms and look forward to updates about their lives since their last appearance.
And as is always the case with Johnny's novels, as soon as he's finished with one -- I'm already bugging him about his next one. So if you're looking for good gay fiction, I highly recommend "Six Neckties". If you're looking for a gay author to read, I highly recommend everything else by Diaz.
I enjoyed watching Tommy follow his heart. Reading this book makes me want to spend more time in OGT. Johnny's writing is always full of andenture and heart.
I was surprised to read that Rico was married. I suppose there is someone for everyone - even the self absorbed. At least she doesn't have to weed out the bar flies and house cats anymore.
