    "Certainly not a Mills & Boon" A book about love. I thought "here we go", but it came to me recommended by a friend of a friend, so I thought it was worth a try. The story hit the ground running, and drew me in almost immediately. It kept me hooked with the seedy elements to the storyline. Before I had realised, I was mostly through the book and actually had spent some time contemplating some of the arguments presented on the central theme. Well worth the read, I enjoyed it.

    "A good read - atmospheric and thought-provoking" Here is a story written by someone who thinks a lot, but is also a born storyteller - which is much rarer. Rarer still, and somewhat disquieting, is how he gets into the minds of insecure young women. (Or maybe that should just be "young women", as we are all insecure around the subject of the men we love and whether or not they love us.) His understanding of the female psyche is uncanny, and often more than a little embarrassing. But to get back to the story: it grabs you from the first chapter and bowls you along on a wild ride, some of it probably against your wishes. Our hero may have great insight into the female mind, but he's also a regular guy, and doesn't cope well with sudden, unexpected grief. He does the guy thing and runs from it like hell, including a tour into the twilight world of not-quite-sanity, which is assisted by the fact that he chooses to fall apart in Amsterdam. Lucid enough to be tortured... More > by what he remembers, he drifts from hash joint to seedy bar in the sleazier parts of the city on the canals - and duly gets himself into even more trouble (as one does). Hemingway-esque barroom types provide a deliciously authentic atmosphere. In the meantime, his attempts to understand the nature of love - and whether it exists - continue. By the end he has more information and more insight, - but to find out where that gets him, you'll have to read it yourself.< Less
