    It s not the worst book I have ever read but I must say that it is not part of the good book league too I thought the story was all over the place I really had no idea where Mr Beck wanted to go with the story Too many characters in one go, I struggled really hard to keep track with all the names and it wasn t even a detective story I don t think I ll keep buying his books I don t have the chemistry with him, I guess If I don t have that chemistry with an author s work, I prefer to kee It s not the worst book I have ever read but I must say that it is not part of the good book league too I thought the story was all over the place I really had no idea where Mr Beck wanted to go with the story Too many characters in one go, I struggled really hard to keep track with all the names and it wasn t even a detective story I don t think I ll keep buying his books I don t have the chemistry with him, I guess If I don t have that chemistry with an author s work, I prefer to keep him in the background

    As I m doing some cleanup of my library and have to get rid of some books, I decided this should be one of them so I may as well write three sentences about it To put it straightly this is not a good book It lacks structure, it lacks resolution to most themes and subplots, and even said themes were just there There is some sort of bildungsroman going there but it s really underdeveloped There are very promising ideas in this book that leads to nowhere.So Nick moves out from his parents As I m doing some cleanup of my library and have to get rid of some books, I decided this should be one of them so I may as well write three sentences about it To put it straightly this is not a good book It lacks structure, it lacks resolution to most themes and subplots, and even said themes were just there There is some sort of bildungsroman going there but it s really underdeveloped There are very promising ideas in this book that leads to nowhere.So Nick moves out from his parents of choice after first moving out of his small town where he felt rejected by family and the whole community because of being gay and starts living in a flat shared with three roommates He is also dealing with trauma after 11 9, tries to find his place in the world, navigate friendships with people he s already known and new people who appear in his life, and maybe just maybe find a happy little romance Sounds good Because for me it sounds just like a book I like reading a lot Yet, nothing of it really happens It s there and sometimes it comes to the surface, sometimes the author seems to forget about it altogether The lack of any romance was also a disappointment but I could be absolutely fine with it if the book was about coming of age of the hero But to be honest, I can t answer this simple question what this book was about I really have no idea.So why have I kept it for so long even though I usually get rid of unwanted books immediately Because there are two scenes I absolutely love Especially one, that inspired me to write my own novel that otherwise has totally nothing to do with any of it but that one image To make it funnier, the scenes I loved have no impact on the plot At all I have no idea what they do in this book I have no idea what the author was thinking.Seriously, a little puzzle Completely unsatisfying though I wrote my favourite scenes down That will be enough

    This was a book I was eager to read because in so many ways at least on the surface it very closely resembles the novel I am currently writing Like my protagonist, the story centers around a 19 year old who leaves home because of the rejection and alienation he feels for being gay He moves to a big city in this case Manhattan, in my story Brian moves to San Francisco in hopes of finding acceptance and the chance to be himself and live life fully It also takes place in the recent past so the This was a book I was eager to read because in so many ways at least on the surface it very closely resembles the novel I am currently writing Like my protagonist, the story centers around a 19 year old who leaves home because of the rejection and alienation he feels for being gay He moves to a big city in this case Manhattan, in my story Brian moves to San Francisco in hopes of finding acceptance and the chance to be himself and live life fully It also takes place in the recent past so the prevailing sociopolitical attitudes I reasoned would be similar Eureka was my initial reaction I have found something that should inspire me and stimulate my creative juices.As it turned out this proved to be a very disappointing book The story began promisingly enough but quickly sputtered out I did not find the protagonist or for that matter any of the characters particularly interesting or sympathetic One problem I thought was that the author threw in too many individuals and never really developed them fully Even the story s main characters seemed to be shallow at best In addition I found one part of the story line to be absurdly contrived Nick, the protagonist has 3 roommates, one of whom is a woman named Morgan whom he and his other roommates find quite irritating About 3 4 of the way through the book we find out that a woman whom Nick works for just happens to be Morgan s long lost sister Somehow the reader is expected to find that plausible in a city as huge as NYC Pretty absurd in my opinion.The book seemed to drag on and on and never really took off Even though the book is less than 300 pages it took an eternity to read not because it was deep but simply because it was so vapid The story ends with Nick temporarily returning to his small Midwestern roots to confront his family That part of the story is leftor less to the reader s imagination other than a vague suggestion that Nick and his twin brother may have a shot at finally becoming friends.I was frankly glad to turn the last page of this book and move on to some otherinteresting story with better character development Fortunately the next book I read A Home at the End of the World by Michael Cunningham was very fulfilling and extremely well written

    The collaboration of the four authors who write under the pen name of Timothy James Beck built a strange New York series all the spectrum of gay experiences and this time was the time of the young adult, self discovery journey of a young gay man dealing with the traumatic experience of the after 9 11 At the beginning of the novel, the reader, or at least me, has the impression that Nick is older than he really is He has a job, he is noa student, he lives alone, better he shares a two The collaboration of the four authors who write under the pen name of Timothy James Beck built a strange New York series all the spectrum of gay experiences and this time was the time of the young adult, self discovery journey of a young gay man dealing with the traumatic experience of the after 9 11 At the beginning of the novel, the reader, or at least me, has the impression that Nick is older than he really is He has a job, he is noa student, he lives alone, better he shares a two rooms apartment with other three roommates, and he seems to have a whole lot of experience behind his shoulders but little by little we discover another reality, Nick is only 19 years old, a drop out from college, and he has just left the safe shelter of his uncle Blaine s posh apartment in lower Manhattan Blaine and Daniel are the main characters of other two novels by Timothy James Beck, and supporting characters of all the others too Nick s story is not displayed up front for the reader, but we rebuild it piece by piece during the length of the book When he was only 16 years old, Nick decided to leave his homeland little country town to go live in the Big City with wealth and gay Uncle Blaine From Nick s perspective, it was the only choice he had to escape a life of harassment, it s was not a dream comes true, buta punishment for the reader s perspective, and also for Nick s relatives in Eau Claire, it was like winning a lottery, Nick was going to live an artsy life in one of the most challenging cities in the world It can be sound strange, knowing how big New York City is, but Nick was searching for a safe shelter, for a place where to hide in security, a place where him being gay, and an artist, was not an oddity that made him being pointed out in the street New York City gave him the anonymity he desired, but also a new family to look after him, Blaine and his lover Daniel as step fathers, and Gwendy and Gretchen his mother s cousins as step mothers Nick had to renounce to his real family, but he was happy all the same 9 11 destroyed his security and his new found make up family Two years later the New York City which was his safe shelter is now a place full of scaring things, Nick is scared by the subway, by the skyscrapers, but the fact that everyone around him was in someway affected by that tragic event And Nick has only a solution for that running away another time, leaving behind all the people who love him, searching another safe shelter in the anonymity Maybe since the previous novels I read by these authors were basically romances, I was expecting also for this one to be, and I was probably expecting that Nick s solution to his troubles would have been to find love And instead this is a classical self discovery journey, and the solution is not to find the courage inside someone else, but inside you And so yes, Nick has relationships, and some of them are also quite nice, made me wonder if it wouldn t have been nice for them to developed in something , but in the end, they were not the turning point of the story Before being able to really fall in love, Nick has to learn that running away it s not the way to resolve your trouble.http www. dp 0758216866

    Author Timothy James Beck, helmer of such gay page turners as Someone Like You, He s The One, and I m Your Man, has introduced yet another displaced Midwestern teen, Nick Dunhill, in his latest novel, When You Don t See Me.Shunned by his family members, including a twin brother, Chuck, who would rather see their kin sent away than accept his being gay, Nick takes off for the Big Apple to live with his Uncle Blaine and Blaine s partner, Daniel An appreciator of all things creative, Nick graduate Author Timothy James Beck, helmer of such gay page turners as Someone Like You, He s The One, and I m Your Man, has introduced yet another displaced Midwestern teen, Nick Dunhill, in his latest novel, When You Don t See Me.Shunned by his family members, including a twin brother, Chuck, who would rather see their kin sent away than accept his being gay, Nick takes off for the Big Apple to live with his Uncle Blaine and Blaine s partner, Daniel An appreciator of all things creative, Nick graduates from a high school for visual arts and enrolls in a renowned New York City college for aspiring artists As his sopho year approaches, much to the disappointment of his uncle, Nick drops out so he can experience life on his own terms, and moves in with high school friends, Kendra and Roberto, and fourth roommate, Morgan.What follows is essentially a catalog of events, typical of any coming of age novel, especially one where the teen is trying to get by on his own for the first time in New York City Keeping each of the characters and their traits straight proves to be a bit of a challenge for the reader but it is precisely that which makes Nick s story compelling He fights with Morgan, overcompensates for Kendra, worries about Roberto, ignores his uncle, lusts after his friend, Fred, and envies Blythe, a former classmate who has become a successful artist.All the while, Nick has his share of sexual dalliances, loses his job and finds another, and touches base with his immediately family only whenever it is deemed absolutely necessary Nick s story may be too involved and a bit jumbled, but it s easy enough to follow, and what one expects of a directionally challenged 19 year old It would be accurate to call Nick an underachiever, yet the author somehow manages to make him the envy of all of us who wish they could turn back the clock, even just for one day

    I feel like this was a bit of a miss for me The story was essentially a year in the life of the main character Although we tried to learn as he grew and became his own man in the big city nothing really felt complete He had issues with his roommates never really fully resolved It was hintedandthe trouble with his family and it seemed like he just started trying to heal from that His gay family felt shunned or rejected by him when he seeks his independence or thats what we ar I feel like this was a bit of a miss for me The story was essentially a year in the life of the main character Although we tried to learn as he grew and became his own man in the big city nothing really felt complete He had issues with his roommates never really fully resolved It was hintedandthe trouble with his family and it seemed like he just started trying to heal from that His gay family felt shunned or rejected by him when he seeks his independence or thats what we are told but we don t get dragged through the emotions and turmoil they seem to talk about So either the character is just completely self centered and really doesn t care about anyone around him or we didn t get the depth of character development that we could have had A lot of times, conflict and plot points seemed kind of haphazardly thrown in to spice up the plot with out any real foreshadowing or powerful ties to the stories There were a lot of characters who some times only popped up a few times and were quickly forgotten until they randomly popped up again in all, it felt like a jumble, but it never made me groan or roll my eyes and it did make me want to finish it, thus three stars But when i did finish it, my response was just this is it seriously, where is the rest

    At first, I thought the book was going to get off to a good start but I got rather disappointed as I read it.The main character Nick is a 19yo transplant from the mid west and his life in the big city I found him dull and uninteresting I also found his situations and interactions with the books other characters to be rather clich The author had a real good opportunity to delve into why Nick seemed so ambivalent to love, career or life but chose to write about mundane scenarios in Nick s At first, I thought the book was going to get off to a good start but I got rather disappointed as I read it.The main character Nick is a 19yo transplant from the mid west and his life in the big city I found him dull and uninteresting I also found his situations and interactions with the books other characters to be rather clich The author had a real good opportunity to delve into why Nick seemed so ambivalent to love, career or life but chose to write about mundane scenarios in Nick s life that really seem to go nowhere.The book nor the characters really moved me I also had trouble seeing who this book would appeal to

    Read But abandoned.I m all for gay novels, but this story about a self hating gay boy who is searching for love and an apartment in New York is just not getting any empathy or interest from me Maybe it s just that I m not there any.Make the protaganist a mid 30s suburban housewife, and I d be all over it.

    changing my rating from 3 to 2 starsTW talk of and recovery from the 9 11 terrorist attacks STDs, HIV and AIDS an HIV positive side character who gets outed on the internet without his permission.The book is set in New York City in 2003 and is actually the last in a series about gay men in NYC, which I didn t know until I d actually finished the book Am I interested in reading the books previous to this one that detail how the older men in this book got together Not really, tbh The writing changing my rating from 3 to 2 starsTW talk of and recovery from the 9 11 terrorist attacks STDs, HIV and AIDS an HIV positive side character who gets outed on the internet without his permission.The book is set in New York City in 2003 and is actually the last in a series about gay men in NYC, which I didn t know until I d actually finished the book Am I interested in reading the books previous to this one that detail how the older men in this book got together Not really, tbh The writing just isn t my cup of tea.This book is basically a coming of age story for Nick Dunhill not a coming out story, he did that already and had to move in with his uncle after his parents flipped as he tries to support himself in NYC while living with 3 roommates and dealing with a shitload of repressed emotions stemming from the trauma of the terrorist attacks on 9 11 and from a difficult past with his family where he always felt like the outsider.There s so many side characters in this book, and there wasn t enough done to distinguish them all that they sometimes blended in together, or I d forget exactly who was who You don t remember everyone but you can group them into roommates family work colleagues college artist friends.It was published in 2007, way before YA even took off, and the writing definitely reflects that view spoiler There s this moment in the book where Nick meets his sorta estranged mom for dinner, and Nick assesses the attractiveness in her appearance, and that did not sit well with me at all Why would a gay nineteen year old think that about his own mother I guess the most likely answer is that this was written by a male author who wrote in a casual misogynistic view of women without actually having the self awareness or perspective that it is in fact misogynistic AND In the second half of this book there s this huge reveal where a side character makes a SERIOUS DICK MOVE where Nick and co find out their friend Fred has been writing about them on a public blog, and he s exposing all these personal secrets about them that no one with any sense of decency should, like how Roberto is HIV and half in love with Nick He jokes about a daisy chain of desire, where he knows that Nick wants him Fred but he doesn t want him back, so he pretends he doesn t know, just like he pretends he doesn t know that Kendra, Nick s roommate, is conning him out of money that s supposed to be used to pay their bills Also, he knows that Nick is traumatized by the 9 11 attacks to the point where he s scared of flying, elevators, taking the subway and tall buildings, and he thinks Nick has an eating disorder because he s so thin, a.k.a the reason the gave Nick the pseudonym Stick on his blog hide spoiler So that was a bummer Not entirely bad, but not great either
