The main character was irritating, whiny, and arrogant, and while I gave the author some slack because I figured it was for character development reasons, but it didn't seem to be--- he stays that way for the entire book and really doesn't seem to have any redeeming qualities at all. In fact, I couldn't even empathize with the secondary characters like Blake.
In addition to that, the entire book is written in a passive, past tense so it seems dull and awkward. I stopped several times while reading this hoping that it was due to some kind of flashback or was essential to the build-up to the story's climax but there really wasn't a major climax so the story just dragged along. There was also no real description; it's straight forward exposition in the most dry way possible.
Other readers mentioned that they found the book to be humorous but it never seemed funny to me, which was an accomplishment in itself because I can usually find something that I like.
The book may be free but don't waste your time on it.
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.
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 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.
