I'm a little over a third of the way through this. It's taking an annoyingly long time as I find it difficult to get into this style of quite dense writing since I've stopped comuting by tube. Am enjoying the gentle, meandering style, and loving the discussion of architecture vs literature. It's an interesting exercise to read the word blogging every time Hugo writes the word printing. I guess some arguments never get old. I'm especially interested to know how Hugo thought his own worked squared with the idea that the immediacy of literature cheapens it.
Cam and Willow have been best friends since they were children. They have involved in every aspect of each others lives, except for the intimate aspects. Now, after all these years, they begin to see the other in a new light. Repressed feelings and emotions surface forcing the to face the reality of their fate. I thought the story started off a little slow, in fact it was so slow that I put it down for about a month before going back to it. After they reached Cam's parents home is really when the story started to gain some momentum. By the time they were finally prepared to face their feelings for each other, the story was almost over! I loved and hated the tension and sexual chemistry that was brewing right beneath the surface...I was thinking: JUST DO IT ALREADY! Though I liked the book, it didn't wow me-I didn't love it. I would liked to have seen a little more sizzle between these characters because I really felt they had it...lurking just out of reach. ✳✳ Copy provided by the author/publisher for an honest review.
