This book was amazing, and it barely has a plot. Isherwood's writing style is superb, obviously. He has a way of articulating the thoughts and passions of a character with authenticity and empathy. I think I found a part of myself in each of the characters, or at least their experiences.

My only criticism is how the sexuality of Stephen is portrayed - specifically, his affair with Michael Drummond. They seemed to genuinely love each other, at least for a time. It's almost as if Isherwood has trouble committing to this idea, despite his flair and talent for depicting gay relationships.
