A Gay Classic!

The story is timeless in it's depiction of coming out and finding your own niche. Set in WWII the story of Laurie, a young man out of the army, wounded and coming to terms with his new physical body impairment as well as his sexuality. He breezes from the hospital to a party where he finds another group of like-minded men who round up the characters to be in Laurie's life. I found it interesting that different "types" of men still exist in gay society today. I really enjoyed the narrator who handled each voice well; never too over the top. This novel is a great representation of first loves and lasting loves. Highly recommend this book to young and old gay men of today for a bit of history on how it was like for us back in an earlier time and how some feelings stay the same when it comes to love.

A struggle at first. But then it pulls you in.

Amazingly well done. Psychologically comparable to Gone w/the Wind in many ways. Truly exceptional!

Heartrending History Lesson

This is basically the intellectual missing link between the modern gay identity and the it's the-old cultural heritage which is the subject of so much debate both within the gay community and in academia. It's also the sort of timeless, intimate human story that, in its universality, reflects parts of yourself that seldom see the light of day.. or maybe it was just super relevant to my own life in weirdly specific ways.. but either way, it's beautiful and deeply informative, in true Renault fashion.

I think I’ve seen this episode

An enjoyable book, the WWII spin on a love triangle. Nail biter happy ending. Not a war story. It gets a little soapy by the 3/4 mark but still a worthwhile read/listen

Emotionally Sharp

This is one of those works that sneaks up to leave a reader almost shaken by it's humanity as the last words play out. The first half so thoroughly intertwines the reader in the routine of bruised souls, that as the story picks up velocity in it's closing chapters you become as emotionally wrenched as the characters. Great story and top notch narration!
