Not that I have a whole lot of experience with the culture, but I have enough to know that they were awfully violent for emo kids.

Meanwhile Spencer's mom has come across a picture taken the night of Spencer's suicide and it looks as though Adam was actually with Spencer that night. At varying times throughout the 416 page novel the plot gets put on hold while he delves for a page or two into the life and times of Character X, Y, or Z. I've read quite a lot of novels with gay men as the main protagonist but this book was in a class of its own. p. 139) He recognizes it in his neighbor Susan and thinks, even though he'd never do anything with it, "if you didn't recognize it for what it was and realize that it was there, it could be even more dangerous.I suppose that's okay, but for me, without a more attractive premise, you'd better bring something besides twenty pages of explanation at the end of the journey to make up for the desert that was the first 9/10 of the novel. There's some good material in here about the love lives of gay men before the Kinsey Report, before the Mattachine Society, and certainly before Stonewall. At times hard to read, because it's raw and crude--fitting to the story--but it makes you feel a bit of a voyeur (also fitting to the story).

This book deals with present-day technology and the ethics surrounding that technology, but it also imitates the language and values of the present. I enjoyed those parts a lot, even though that wasn't at all what drew me to the story in the first place. All that being at least sort of the case, I’m delighted to note that precisely the opposite obtains with regard to Christopher Bram’s first two novels.Mike's professional partner Ilene Goldfarb confronts Susan to find the Lucas’s real father, as he could be a potential kidney donor. And whn an unidentified Jane Doe is beaten to death not far away, those connections threaten to turn this quiet community upside down—and force these desperate parents to decide whether there is any line they won’t cross to protect those they love most in the world. He now lives in New Jersey with his wife, Anne Armstrong-Coben MD, a pediatrician, and their four children. Yeah, I know, I harp on such matters excessively, so when I’m presented with a quality presentation, I’m duty-bound to note it! Bram's novel Father of Frankenstein, about film director James Whale, was made into the movie Gods and Monsters starring Ian McKellen and Brendan Fraser.

As I said, reader response to this novel is all over the spectrum, and it does rub people the wrong way.

Is the “generation gap” the main reason why it’s so difficult for most parents and children to relate to one another? The story deals with problems of parental controls, teenage suicide, children independence and abuse of prescribed drugs. Coben gives the reader a glimpse of the effects this event has on both parents as well as the character's best friend. As the lives of these families collide in tragic, unexpected, and violent ways, long-hidden connection in their small suburb begin to work their way to the surface.
