[REVIEW] Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx
Brokeback Mountain - Annie Proulx

A sad, heartbreaking story with vivid imagery. My poor little heart.

 

The narrator was fantastic and his different tones of voice for Ennis and Jack made me fall for the characters even more. Now I just need to nurse my sadness.

Brokeback Mountain
Brokeback Mountain - Annie Proulx This book is super short and straight to the point. No floweriness and fillers. I was shocked by how much it made me feel with just these few pages. The way it's delivered makes it so real.

Annie Proulx need to let it go as readers would come to their own conclusion anyway
Brokeback Mountain - Annie Proulx

Read this article, "Annie Proulx regrets writing Brokeback Mountain? She needs to let it go" and I agreed with the conclusion that she has to get it over herself.

Once a book is written, how it is being read or interpreted or being remembered, it is really up to the readers. It might not be the writer intend that it turned into a tragic romantic story between gay men, but that would be all the gay readers like to see it. So be it. 

 

Who wouldn't want a nice ending, giving us the warm and cozy feeling that love wins in the end.

 

So, let it go and there is no regret getting all that cash from the book sales and movie deal.

Zero at the Bone ~ Jane Seville
Zero at the Bone - Jane Seville

Jack Francisco was happy with his life as a maxillofacial surgeon until the day he'd witnessed a hit mob. Now he has a new name, lives in a new town, and has been put into protective custody until he can testify. As though he thinks his life couldn't get any worse, a hitman is coming after him.

 

D. is that hitman. He is being blackmailed into killing Francisco. But even a killer has their morals. Normally D. doesn't finish people off who don't deserve it. (If one could tell, that murderer, rapists, or bandits deserve to die.) D. is weary even before he has to stand vis-à-vis with Jack but after one look into his blue eyes D. just can't finish him off. So, they become unlikely alleys on the run from various opponents like the mob, the infiltrated witness protection program and those guys who seem to be after D.

 

If that isn't enough, the alleys start reluctantly to become friends, and then something more is growing between them. But what is going to happen when they give in to their attraction...

Brokeback Mountain
Brokeback Mountain - Annie Proulx Beau, simple, sans fioritures, très brut à l'image des deux protagonistes. Une histoire d'amour qui va au delà de l'orientation sexuelle, touchante et triste à la fois.
