I like J.M's writing 3. I ABSOLUTELY HATED this book.
The following section contains spoilers, but I wanted the above comments to be visible.
This book is about a young man, Trin, who hero worships a gunner, Gerrick, from afar. He will go down on anyone who will tell him a story about his hero. When he finally gets to meet Gerrick he is really excited and sleeps with him that night. He is convinced that he is in love and that Gerrick is sleeping with him and him alone, despite the warnings of his brother and best friend. A couple of days after Gerrick arrives Trin finds him in the shower with another man. He is distraught, and ends up throwing a temper tantrum that almost completely distroyed the work that he had been doing on Gerrick's truck. He fixes it again, mostly anyway, with the help of a lot of tape. Gerrick leaves after words with Trin, leaving him heartbroken. But later that day, the gunners return with Gerrick, who is very badly hurt. Trin ends up looking after Gerrick and basically settles down with him. This Book makes me want to scream. Trin is so... pathetic, Gerrick is a bastard, I hated both of them! And the ending was terrible, Trin basically giving up any chance of being happy with someone else and settling down with Gerrrick because he feels guilty. Despite how much I hated this book, I don't regret the time I spent reading this book. It wasn't boring or poorly written, simply extremely aggrevating. ...more
