Wonderfully surprising short story

There's so much in this short story that I barely know where to begin my review. It's about the stories we tell ourselves versus reality. It's about love, and avoidance. And it's about escape, and about seeking connection. It's surprising, and wonderful, deep and thought-provoking, and I highly recommend it for a quick read that will stay with you a while.

No beginning, no climax, and no ending.

This was a horribly written story. It is hard to write an accurate review without giving the story away but here goes. The protagonist and antagonist do nothing this whole story. They barely even speak. I did not know what was going on and why they behaved the way they did because the writer had action but not the purpose behind why it was happening. In order to get a whole picture, the reader has to come up with the storyline themselves to have it make sense.

Lesbian fiction written by a man

I don't mean that as a "reader beware" it anything. There were just a number of times during the story where I got taken out of it because it felt like it was focusing on the wrong things. For example, at the end (after what I'd call the climax, but not quite at the denouement proper), Kaat thinks about losing her virginity to a young man and deriving absolutely no joy from the experience. It's not outright distasteful, but it's mostly out of nowhere and feels gross because there's some minor dubcon to it. And the only reason I can imagine the author felt including this at that time (or any time) is their assumption that that moment must have had profound impact upon her life. Perhaps it does for some lesbians. Maybe a lot of lesbians, I don't know. What I do know is that men essentially never need women to be hurt like this in their stories, and yet it seems a curious prerequisite. It's just extra weird in a story about love without men involved. Please stop this. (Again, this wasn't the only moment, but it sticks out the most.)

Most expressions of passion between the two main women worked for me, though. It's wonderfully read, too.

Lush description

So much is conveyed in this short story about love and loss and shifting allegiances. The local color of expats living in Paris and the Belgian countryside flying by on a motorcycle ride already make this story worth the listening.

Don't do it.

This book started off not bad but then it just went down hill from there. It was becoming predictable after it started but the ending was not what I expected. It was straight horrible story telling and completely irrational.

Bikes vs Humans

I guess finding true love on the back of a motorcycle might be a crazy thing to do.
