non-judgemental, coming-of-age, seventies
the setting of this story, 70's suburbia and NYC, and the release of taboo, AIDS and forbidden love, from an adolescent's view point that is not too loaded with other baggage to cloud the issues and themes makes it a fresh read, alarming too, in that a girl is heading into the unknown in the city....
She does flesh out the main character nicely.
a teen dealing with death is especially hard, not that it's ever easy. Emotions then are so amplified then it seems.
an enjoyable listen, that seemed to fit the changing of seasons, now to cooler, darker fall.
intriguing soul search
Harold who tried to make amends after such a long lapse of time...
I loved his reading (and all his acting). there was an element of 'sympathique', warm, personable, that his voice lent to the character.
Journey to the Center of Harold
I trek long distances myself and the mind does interesting things, deep things surface when untethered. Good book!
