Very masculine coming of age story Aug 22, 2009
I hated this book and actually threw it away before finishing it. It's the story of a man dealing with the grief process who returns to the summer vacation spot of his childhood. He went through his adolescence here and the book explores his thinking. As young men are wanton to be, it tended to be very sexualized, and I didn't like that at all. Perhaps that is my view as a woman, perhaps it is as an Evangelical Christian. In any event, I really didn't like it at all. Perhaps a man would have a different experience with the story.
