Well I finished Chapter 3, or was it 4? I lost track.
A boring book, with boring characters. Yes the main character is boring. His sex is boring. The author doesn't even describe it. Definitely not a romance, definitely not Gay Adult fiction. Just boring, very, very boring.
I'm off to read another novel. Thankfully this one is free. Now I know why; it's extremely boring.
Did I say it was boring? Yes, very (yawn) boring.
The book is well written, no grammar errors to speak of and the details of the setting were good. I could visualize most of it. That's why I'm giving it one star.
But the character of Stephen was self centered, vain and lacked no real commitment to his long time boyfriend. He could only admit that he loved Blake after Blake left him for an older better hung neighbor. Even then it wasn't about losing Blake, it was all about Rick being better hung than Stephen that he focused on. So it was still all about him.
If you don't mind wasting your time reading a story that goes no where with a MC you aren't going to feel any sympathy for then this is the book for you.
The characters were unpleasant, surface and had no redeeming qualities whatsoever.
Usually, readers prefer to have some sort of sympathy or empathy for the characters of a book, but "Time to Upsize" had NO such characters in it. They were unfailingly whiny, bitchy, unfaithful, and preoccupied with sex.
I had hoped to find some merit in this LGBT-subject matter book, but unfortunately this one sank to the low level of petty sexual exploits, predictable gay themes and characters without development, all couched in very flat, uninspired writing.
I wish I could retrieve that wasted hour reading this thing. I can only hope that Graeme Aitken's other books are better. But he lost me on this one and I won't be reading any of them.
I now know to read reviews before downloading.
My major complaint is that for all the sexual endeavors there was a huge lack of sex scenes. I don't want to read sex sex sex but it would be nice to read a good scene or two (or four :)).
Now, the upside. Characters reacted and spoke believably for the situations they were in. The author actually did plot and character, without resorting to the cheap trick of sex scenes. The use of English was generally good (except that "discrete" was wrongly used for "discreet", many times). I was invested in the characters enough to want to know what happened next.
There's nothing wrong with trilogies, but each volume has to reach some concluding point. (This is why /The Lord of the Rings/ is not a trilogy; it's a three-volume novel.) The abrupt stopping of /Time to Upsize/ left me with a bad taste in my mouth, too bad after having enjoyed what came before.
