There was so much that I liked about this book. The main thing that I did appreciate, was that the story is told in a sort of blog/diary format. Because of this, we are able to truly read and hear the raw emotions from the main character because this writing outlet for her is her biggest confidant. While I did really like this book, I have to say I have never been so floored by a book before reading this. There was so much left up for interpretation that it left me feeling very hollow and even kind of depressed once I finished reading it. This book has many different outcomes and takes many alternative directions than other books that are similar in this type of genre. I think it is well worth the read.… (altro)

Burnett's debut novel introduces us to us a most interesting protagonist - B. K. Troop - a heavy set, less than aesthetic, aging homosexual man who becomes obsessed with the title character. Christopher is young, handsome, naive and painfully straight. Despite the seemingly hopeless situation, B.K. believes that he can still turn the boy into a conquest by taking advantage of his delicate situation. Christopher is a freshly divorced English teacher who has run away from the pain of losing his ex and suffering his overbearing mother has put him through, in order to write his long suppressed novel. Burnett takes us on a bumpy ride as the relationship develops and changes throughout the year 1984. This character-driven story pulls the reader in, as we start out disgusted and then fascinated by the workings of B.K's mind and his less than savory tactics to reach his goal. Burnett uses the flamboyance of his narrator's personality to embellish his prose with quips and high-brow remarks, making it not only an intelligent read, but one that sparkles with wit and humor.… (altro)
