Amazing mix of Romance, Passion and Social/Political issues, March 17, 2010
Ines Ross (London, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Way We Almost Were (Kindle Edition) Sometimes I read a book I like, I love or I'm passionate about. And sometimes a book just lets me speechless, so happy and satisfied, and fulfilled, that I loose my words. This book by Ryan Field is one of them. I don't know what to say about the book if not that it is AMAZING. I read "A christmas Carl" by the same author and I loved it. But this book, "The way we almost were" is by far the best of Ryan Field's books. Thi is a book about two men who met in college, and the love they have shared for each other over the years. It is also a book about the importance of living one's life honestly and to the full. Or, it could be about the importance to be real, and honest and fight for what makes your heart bit, wether it is your love or a good cause. In this book, Ryan Field manages to mix romance, sensuality and serious social/political issues very tastefully. The story is at the same time light, entertaining, romantic, sensual, and deep and thought provoking. If Ryan Field was a cook, I would say he is a chef; not the fancy type, but the type you find in an excellent family owned restaurant, where food tastes like very, very, very delicious homemade meals. This book made me think of "Harvey Milk" (gay political activist). Dear Ryan Field, you just made a reader very happy today. Keep writing, please?
