This was a good book, but I still wanted more. I eagerly want to read Maupin?s last novel in the series! Sure of You is missing the intertwining of lives that we expect, like in the previous books. Burke returns, to offer Mary Ann a job in New York City. She is forced to decide between her rise to stardom, from her career, or her husband Brian and little girl, ?Puppy?. With the help of Prue, she meets Rand and Chloe, which makes her mind up what she will do. Having really liked/loved the character Mary Ann Singleton from the very first volume, now I want to ground her face into the dirt. Michael and Thack are living happily and well in their own house, and are coping with the fact that Michael is HIV positive. Still, Michael does some more growing up in this book. He is still a very loveable, friend-to-all, and sexy man. Thack is good for Michael, in a way that he gives Michael a way of thinking about things and people that I don?t believe Michael would have considered.

Unsure of Maupin
This book is a disaster. Armistead Maupin's "Tales of the City" were frothy, entertaining and, with a measure of humour, offered an intriguing insight into a world most of us regard with some kind of prejudice -- that of the soi-disant "gay" community. But in Sure Of You, Maupin has gone 'way over the top in his homage to homosexuality. "What did you expect," I hear the author's fans cry. More, much more, from a writer of Maupin's abilities. If he set out to offend the non-gay community he did a great job.
