5-0 out of 5 stars For all OtRFK fans.
First of all, I'm very disappointed with DMP's editing of the context... So many missing quotation marks... and some lines that are supposed to be /thoughts/ aren't even italicized or anything. Some of the translation was a bit rough and awkward in diction as well... but, that part I can excuse since they try to translate as literal as possible. Please keep in mind that English and Japanese writing styles differ, and it is impossible to translate so that it fits the English reading mind 100%. I do wish they keep honorifics though... One mistake they're still repeating is the placement of the illustrations... sometimes they appear few pages before the scene actually happens, and sometimes after it happens. At the very least, I was hoping the layout be correct, but apparently not.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great story, but...
...DMP needs to proofread their novel translations!Geez.I can't tell you, since I actually lost count, how many easily identifiable mistakes were in this printed novel.I actually think this one had more than the first novel for this series.It wasn't that there were mispelled words, no.I'm sure DMP ran MS Word Spellcheck on it at some point, but that seems to be where they ended.There were words that were obviously meant to be other words and numerous mistakes that I could believe someone who did not read and write English as a first language would make grammatically.I would hope that a major publisher of yaoi manga in America would hire someone to do the job of an editor and fix these kinds of things, though.The translation was a little awkward, but I'm not about to blame the fact that English and Japanese are such different languages on the publisher.I can however complain that the writing style in the translation lacked cohesiveness.Sometimes thoughts were in quotations, but often they were not, and as the reader I had to spend more time trying to figure out who was saying what, or if they were saying it at all.It also seemed that in a number of the instances where thoughts were not quoted, that they originally had been, because the first letter in those thoughts was still capitalized.There were also a lot of punctuation mistakes.Some of them were unfinished sentences, and a few seemed to be the result of a paragraph or sentence being broken in the middle, but the punctuation to correct this not being added.

5-0 out of 5 stars real people with dirt on their feet
If you're sick of cute little stories that follow some godforsaken formula, you might get some juices flowing with this book. I can count on my fingers all the books I've read that resulted in what I would call "an experience." This is one of them.

5-0 out of 5 stars An unforgettable reading experience...
Upon being assigned this novel to read as part of my undergraduate coursework, I of course rolled my eyes and sighed...naively assuming that this too would be another boring and mundane reading requirement. Never could I have imagined that not only would I NOT be able to put this book down, but I would also be pleasantly haunted by this marvelous novel.
5-0 out of 5 stars An Eye-Opening Life Story
Before Night Falls is provocative, engaging, and eloquently written. The beginning is a harsh introducion with Arenas near his death bed, then starts from his earliest childhood memories in Cuba and moves forward forty years to his life in New York. Style-wise, I love the way this book is composed in fragments. Some of them resemble traditional chapters, but other take on a single subject, such as "the earth" or "witches," and briefly examine his relationship to that subject. Different lights are shed on his identity throughout the book: his sexuality, his politics, and his art. Of the these three factors, politics seemed to be more of a backdrop; an ever-looming presence that was out to combat his free spirit. Arenas's life was one that lacked routine, which is likely one reason this is a captivating autobiography. Aside from his work at the National Library, there wasn't a daily agenda of hopping from one institution to the next, as seen in American life. He followed the heat; he chased his passions.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this book!
I'm a college student majoring in Theater Design.I had to read this play for one of my classes my freshman year.So I sat down expecting to plod through a story that I'd never read again.Boy was I shocked!I loved it!I couldn't put it down until I'd read the last page, and then I got right online and ordered the sequel.Honestly, I'm not as big a fan of the second book.I haven't read it in a while, but from what I remember it's more offensive, and honestly, a little more like smut.There's an angel with 7 vaginas and it has sex with one of the characters...one of the gay characters..go figure.The second book also seems to take more pot shots at God, which I didn't appreciate as a Christian.Anyway.This is a review of the first book, not the second.(just reminding myself!)I have 7 big bookcases of books at my parents' house, plus my dad is a librarian, so I do a LOT of reading.This book is ALWAYS one of the few "Chosen" books that I take to college with me to keep in my dorm.And just as a side note, I'm not gay, so this book is NOT just for gay people like some of the people whom I've talked to seem to think.BUY IT! You'll be enlightened and inspired to think. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't Be Afraid of the Subject Matter
This book appears at the right time - 25 years into the epidemic, addressing a subject that has been singularly overlooked.There has been so much focus on the dead and dying, little thought has been given the survivors.And yet, when I picked this book up, I hesitated and left it to buy another time when I might feel more brave.I'm trying to get past my grief, after all, not dwell in it.But on a second trip to the bookstore, perhaps feeling more confident, I bought it.I read much of it on DuPont Circle, where much of the action in the book takes place.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Gift to Literature
As we age, as we move beyond the terror of AIDS, what lies in store for us afterwards? For many of us, the 1980s brought a reign of horror in which friends died with the days, and the liberating lovemaking that defined us began to attack us. The immediacy of the pain of the now filled our hearts; but as the unnamed narrator claims in Andrew Holleran's new novel, Grief, it was for a time the disease du jour, and now we, as a nation, have moved on.
1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointment
After hearing the NPR review of this book I raced out to buy it.How disappointed I was when I read it.Although easy to read (Mr. Holleran has a lovely style) it was essentually empty of emotion.I felt nothing.I wanted to say to all of the primary characters "Get over yourself".All of the main participants were beautiful, clever, intelligent.Well, fine.Just come to grips with your lives.Stop whining. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A Classic of its Kind
Artistry in rope and the male figure.
5-0 out of 5 stars Bondage and Male Architecture
There will be those who purchase this fine book hoping for only the prurient. That's not only unfortunate but an insult to a brilliantly conceived and executed volume. Van Darkholme knows that a man is a systematic construction of parts. The use of rope serves to identify and isolate the body, rather as an architect plans floors for a structure. Each has a purpose, each has an access. In this process of isolation the photographer asks that we see what he sees and succeeds. From the exoskeleton of a building, we see the flesh and how it is supported by the rope/girders. It is as if man becomes the Pompidou center, all the disparate parts shown and their intimate connections revealed. Finally, the last few scenes are a mute testimony to tragedy. The collapse of the coherent to the cruelty of the people who would criticize that which they refuse to understand or accept. It is not only art observed, but art as applied.
4-0 out of 5 stars From a Master of Creative Arts
As any industry matures, we begin to see a certain craftsmanship that just didn't exist before.In the adult industry, such is true, and adult media is rarely considered "artful" or even "Avant-garde."

2-0 out of 5 stars Okay for a quick read
I myself work in a juvenille boot camp and found this story very unrealistic and it danced the edge of inappropriateness. First of all, a juvenille with the record such a Grace's would never comply so easily and secondly a youth would never be permitted to stay in a counselor's living space for such a long period of time.
5-0 out of 5 stars Dynamic! Outstanding!
Graceful "Grace" Waters is an angry and beligerent 17-year-old. Chock full of attitude and bucking authority at every opportunity, she soon finds her smart-mouth landing her in front of the same judge for the umpteenth time.Patience worn thin, the judge sentences Grace to Sapling Hill - a place specifically designed for Grace's brand of attitude.

All the books in the Provincetown series are entertaining. But I found the the first two to be very average Radclyffe fare which relied too much on her usual formula and stock characters.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rewarding
Yes, the text is dense, but it is no more so than the tradition the author is working within.Edelman's use of Zizek to critique the dominant ideology of futurity / the symbolic child expands and redirects queer theory.The book is written for specialists.If you're interested in the field but are struggling with the text, first read Zizek's "The Sublime Object of Ideology."
3-0 out of 5 stars Important, but...
Lee Edleman's book poses important questions for all of us about "queerness" and resistance to our presumedly "normal" cultural investments in a redemptive future figured most vividly in the notion of the "child."I admire the work being done here, and in particular the intellectual chutzpah it takes to dismantle this dominant ideological framework while taking on Baudrillard, Butler and other formidable thinkers.It is, however, unfortunate that Edelman seems to have become enchanted as much by his own linguistic cleverness as by the important ideas he sets out to explore.

5-0 out of 5 stars Unparallelled subtlety of observation
Hollinghurst's unparallelled subtlety of observation was almost physically hurting me as I was reading this great novel and that is something I have never experienced before. Apparently, this is literature that reaches places other literature does not reach. I am very much in awe of Mr Hollinghurst's uncanny art and the negative reviews I found here on Amazon prompted me to write this review. Highly recommended for the maybe more experienced reader.

2-0 out of 5 stars Well....
The writing is very good, but the true and simple test of a novel is to ask oneself these questions:Do I care about the characters?Can I stop reading this book right now and never wonder about how it ends?If you answer no to the first question and yes to the second, it is not a good work of literature.The Line of Beauty is, unfortunately, one of these novels.Tedious, overly mannered and stifling.

1-0 out of 5 stars ????????
i liken this book to fitzgerald's "tender is the night." and that is not a good thing. people of no substance plod through hundreds of dull dull pages. are people really this shallow? this empty? probably. but, my god, do i have to read about them? no. i do not. i simply could not finish this book (and that is rare). i wasted valuble reading time for about 300 pages, then had to admit it just wasn't working. because of all the critical acclaim this book recieved, i was very much looking forward to reading it. what a major disappointment! i am truly puzzled by the positive response this thing gets from so many people. great writing? really? i just did not see much of that here. shouldn't a book have at least one interesting character in it? it seems that dullness is making a comback in critical circles these days. too bad. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A honest and spiritual book.All Christians should read this.
Stranger at the Gate was the firstbook I had ever read dealing with the struggles of a gay Christian.It is a touching,wonderful, difficult story about Mel White's struggle to come to terms with his sexual orientation. Anyone who is open to the idea that God loves everyone and deals with people through grace will appreciate the honesty of this book.It makes one think and re-examine old prejudices.Those who are close minded and unable to listen to a viewpointthat may be different from the traditional thinking will find this story offensive. Whatever your thinking, this is a fascinating story well worth reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for those questioning gays and christianity.
Stranger at the Gate is an excellent read for those who are gay, and have a Christian upbringing. The first person narrative about how a gay man comes out of the closet, and how he reconciles the homophobic stance of the conservative, fundamentalist Christian church is eye-opening.
3-0 out of 5 stars homophobes are bigots
That is the message of tolerance from many of the reviewers. The premise being, if you are a Christian and believe the Scriptures that were given by God that plainly teach homosexuality is sin, not an "alternate lifestyle," you must be a homophobe. So, I am not tolerant when I call sin sin, but a sodomite is tolerant when he calls those who disagree with him bigots and homophobes.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great comfort to trans people and/or loved ones of people who are transgendered.
I believe being born transgendered is not a lifestyle choice, but probably coded in DNA somewhere.This book factually and carefully outlines the facts of life for transgendered people and their loved ones.These short stories will take the reader through a multitude of emotions, but end at one great and comforting thought...the issues can be dealt with and the transgendered themselves, as well as family and friends can come through this with grace.I ordered my copy through PFLAG T-Net and the author herself, sent me a personal note.I am a Christian, but a welcoming Christian who believes that all humans were made in His image. Because we are lucky enough to have come after Jesus Christ AND live at a time of modern medicine, the condition of being transgendered can be treated medically.While I am not transgendered myself, I have a loved one who I think is.I plan on keeping this book in my library and give it to that person when and if the time is right.A must have for anyone who is, cares about a trans person or who is curious about trangenderism.

3-0 out of 5 stars Too short to provide real insight
Although some of the real life stories contained in this book are interesting, there is not enough detail to really help families work through these issues. It more of a "there are others in the world going through this" type of book, rather than providing any special insights.

4-0 out of 5 stars The number one first book for families of transgendered
This compilation of40 accounts by the parents, spouses, children, and friends of transgendered individuals (and a few TG themselves) describes reactions from family members as they take the road less traveled toward acceptance of their gender variant relative or friend.Each story is brief - usually only a few pages - but expresses the thoughts and experiences of the individual author.The book is edited by the Chair of the PFLAG Transgender Network, Mary Boenke, MSSA, MA, and mother of an adult FTM transgendered son. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, and extremely well written
To say the least I enjoyed this book tremendously.Not only for the story itself, but because of the creativity of the writing.The way the story was told it is as if I had stood next to these characters throughout their lives and lived with them through their journey. And it is a journey we all have faced at one time or another. I have become a fan of Mr. Perronne, and the way he made his creation become a treasured part of my collection of books. I can't wait to read more from this very talented writer. A job well done!

1-0 out of 5 stars a work at a very middle-school/high school writing level.....

5-0 out of 5 stars Insightful and moving story of growing up gay in the South
As a straight female from the midwest, I was not sure I could relate to a novel about growing up gay in the South, but Perronne does an amazing job of making you care about his protagonist, Mason. Universally, teenagers face the challenge of discovering who they are, but Perronne brings to life the special problems of a gay teenager. One of the things I liked best is that not only does Perronne deal with Mason's sexuality, but he also shows that many of Mason's concerns (whether to go to college, relating to his sibling, etc.) are those of every teenager. Perronne also does an excellent job of bringing to life the eighties era in the tale. I would not say the interest in this story is limited to gay people - it brings understanding about the tribulations of growing up gay, as well as simply being an engaging coming of age story. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars EXCITITING, HILARIOUS, EMOTIONAL AND MYSTERIOUS!
Shame on it all sent me into a world ofromance, emotion, and seduction. It sent goose bumps up my back as I read words that were put together I didnt even know could combine! The feeling I had after reading Shame on it all waselectrifying! The ending itself could have been a whole story. While reading the book I could almost never put it down. There were emotional moments, hilarious moments, and down right too hot for literature moments. I definitely need to start a Zane collection!

5-0 out of 5 stars The most fascinating non-fiction book I've read in years.
Told with compassion and complete objectivity, Colapinto does a fantastic job of revealing the grief experienced by David and his family, a solid understanding of why decisions were made as they were, and why those decisions should never be made in the same way again.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Agony and the Ecstasy of Psycho-Social Politics
Well researched and well written page turner.Dr. John Money's theories run counter to his own research for his doctoral thesis.But they brought him a lot of research money and acclaim.They brought his victims a lot of heartaches.What the arrogant pride of one research has done to so many children and their families ought to be criminal.Not to mention the gratuitous sexual posturing to which he subjected his young patients.
4-0 out of 5 stars A compelling account...
"As Nature Made Him" is a good introduction to intersex issues. I was only vaguely familiar with the term when I picked up the book. After reading this and Jeffrey Eugenides's "Middlesex" I feel much better informed. "Nature" tells an engrossing story about twin boys born in Winnipeg in 1965, a time when transgender issues were seldom mentioned. One of the boys, Brian, is steered to gender reassignment surgery after a botched circumcision. His parents fall under the spell of Dr. John Money, of Johns Hopkins in Baltimore,who at the time held largely unchallenged beliefs that gender was purely an environmental construct.
