    The Love Between Us

    A very different romance than I had expected. The two main characters are both conflicted about who they are and how to open themselves to others. Joe joined the Marines to become a man, but finds that he's drawn to another soldier who he doesn't know how to approach, or engage in any romantic way. He's now returned to civilian life and has again lost what he hoped would be love to violence, when he encounters Tom. Tom really doesn't know who he is. He's put on the persona of the tough macho jock to protect himself from the pain of his past. When things get tough Tom gets violent. His tendency to violence gets him into trouble and he ends up in Chicago working on the receiving dock at the same factory as Joe.  This unlikely pair are drawn together by adoration and circumstance. When violence seems to have taken Joe away Tom is finally broken and only then begins to know who he is and what the love between them is. Certainly a very interesting story and at times difficult to read through the violence to see who lies beneath.

    Beyond erotic literature

    A book about the almost impossible love between two men (could have been 2 women as well) in a still homophobic society. We live in modern societies proud of civil liberties and human rights, but prejudices are still deeply burried in our subconsciousness by conservative cultural norms and values. It's about people outside the mainstream heterosexual cast striving to discover who they are and to live their life accordingly. There are some intense erotic scenes, but there is definitely a literature value to this text. Some philosophical questions of life arise and answers are given. The characters receive thorough descriptions and you surely will get to love them. In the end my rating is 4,5 stars, not 5, because the author opted for too much violence. He could have given colour and depth to his heroes without resorting to so many scenes of quite extreme violence. Characters with such cruel destinies probably do exist but it is not required to expose the reader to descriptive extremes, which I perceived as a written form of torture and abuse.
