Easily accessible, a pleasure to read

This story takes place in a Montreal backdrop from the sixties to today with realistic characters who come alive on every page. The author writes in a clear and simple style which keeps our attention right to the end.

A group of friends who were college radicals of the 1960s find themselves together once again, meeting at a senior citizens' center. Old flames are reignited. Old wounds reopened. In the midst of this, the daughter of one of them is murdered and one of the friends is asked to help solve the murder. I enjoyed the story, being an old 1960s radical myself. The story was solid, the characters interesting and the resolution reasonable. Not the best story i've read, but pretty good.

New Fashioned Whodunit

It is bittersweet when you find someone you have loved all of your life—your first love. Over 50 years you have loved her, but she has been unattainable all those years. It is even better when both of you are now free, even if one of you has a spouse who had a stroke and is now called a vegetable.

I don't know if I liked it or not

I struggled through it, trying to remember who the characters were. I read about a grandfather who was asked to take care if his granddaughter for his lesbian daughter, Sue. He smoked a joint every day with Barnie, his paraplegic friend. He lay in bed listening to her having sex with Jack, a French guy who, on a scale of 1 to 10, was a 9. Grandpa's job was to translate a novel from English to French. It was pretty boring until it reached the pornographic bit, and

Peter Foster's third novel is perhaps his most nuanced to-date, as well as the only one written in the first person. As you turn the pages, you will journey into the character's past, as well as that of Montreal during the turbulent '60's. Foster, as always, writes in clear and compelling prose, and with his trademark wit. The city of Montreal is, in itself, one of the book's main characters - which makes this a fascinating and informative read. It is difficult to assign this novel to any specif ...more

Never Saw it Coming

Couldn't put this book down. When I did, the story stayed with me throughout the day.

This book has real-life experiences, family dynamics, life in the 60s, regrets, hope, and betrayal. Guess I'm trying to say that this is an absolute MUST read.

There weren't any explicit or graphic scenes. Clean, well written, the ending was as good as the beginning.

Seemed to drag on.

Book stated Good Of but dragged on with the same situations over and over throughout chapters. Almost gave up on it but stuck it out.

Not a bad read.

Got to admit, at times it seemed like it was being written by a teen-ager, but in the end, it turned out to be a decent read.
