I suppose that’s all you need to know, plot-wise. It was also humorous at times.

From this very bad first experience X learned two things: Unfortunately, this rookie novel from Rettenmund Encyclopedia Madonnica,not reviewed wants to This was another of those, ‘the cover, oh dear god, the cover! Paperbackpages.

I recently saw the movie they made of this, and, while decent on its own, it was no match for the book. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

What can I say? It’s always an hard rettenmud to write a good novel from a very good movie, and I think that most of the time you like one of them, the novel or the movie, but not culure.

Lists with This Book. Very few gay books to me are worth reading. Aug 12, Michael Prier rated it liked it Shelves: This is so delightful.
