    It s been a long time since I ve found a book that s so compulsively readable There are certainly a few minor flaws namely a tendency to rush, through necessity, over a 12 year arc A couple of times, the author could have inserted dialogue to show rather than tell some particularly important scenes, especially in one blistering argument between two of the main characters.However, Something Like Summer is a treat of a romantic novel By telling the story from the point of view of a seriously flawed lead, in the form of temperamental and vaguely obsessive Ben, Bell manages to pull off a nuanced storyline that unashamedly puts romance at its centre.Tim was, for me, the most intriguing of Bell s characters, but the supporting friendly figure of Allison was a joy Bell also deserves points for his attention to detail and for capturing the disconcerting lunacy that comes with falling in love.A pleasure to read in the two days it took for me to devour it.

    One of the very best reads I have had in a long time, full of wonderful characters and emotions, this story and it subsequent ones, covers almost every aspect of the human condition, love being the strongest, and it is employed with great sensitivity and observation, could be taken from true life as perhaps these stories have been, a wonderful journey for all to discover

    This story is entertaining, very well written and, ultimately, moving The characters are generally funny and complex and it is the desire to find out what happens to them that keeps the reader engaged in the story.However, there is one huge flaw in the work, namely that a lot of the snappy dialogue is lost in the second half of the book in favour of a narrative style This makes the second half of the book far less compelling and also means that the reader never really gets a real emotional sense of Jace, the third main character The result, for me, was that I didn t really care what happened to him, leaving most of the latter part of the book feeling flat Also, the major events at the end of the book, which redeem the story somewhat, are outlined in a few paragraphs, but should really have been dealt with in a less rushed way.Overall, although it is a very enjoyable read, it falls short of being great.

  5. Michael Wild Michael Wild says:

    The first half of the book is stronger, heartfelt and moving The second half is a patchwork, the various scraps only and the strength of the characters, that is so well developed in the first half, is diluted.The writers skill throughout is a bit shaky the bad framing of sentences is a particular weakness throughout the book.Not great, but nevertheless an entertaining read.

  6. Geoff Flint Geoff Flint says:

    Perhaps Something like Summer IS a little fanciful and not every young gay lad is able to creep into his boyfriend s home undetected by the sleeping parents but it makes a good read and could encourage others to value themselves as gay and o.k.Jay Bell tells the story of the developing relationship with gritty realism laced with self doubt and teenage pain Something like Summer isn t just another tale of teenage angst and sex behind the bike sheds The characters really do develop into young adults, with successes and failures in their lives as well as in their hearts Worth reading For teenagers certainly, for older readers the story makes one realise how many kids struggle to find themselves in a world which even now can be cruel and vindictive to anyone a bit different Happy ending SURE

    This is a book that has everything, from teenage love to heartbreak It covers so much about 2 people from different religions and upbringing How they meet, the list, thenll the loss Then the start of a new relationship for Ben and the years that follow, then the meetings again and the losses.Won t tell the whole story otherwise you would not read and like this novel as much as I did.Well worth reading and I hope the rest of the books are as gr8.
