Atom Heart John Beloved

Atom Heart John Beloved - Luke Hartwell


But it is the most useless and the most helpless review you could find. So, skip it.

I'm not going to talk about this book.

Because I just don't want. It'll stay with me.

I'm not going to share. I'm selfish.

Besides, I'm not able to deliver well structured and reasonable reviews. They are too emotional and totally meaningless to be good.

Just a few words:

It is about Nathan. The best friend of John. And it is about John. A lot of about John. And about some other bad and good guys. And about the world, family, religion, sex, lust, church, friendship, belief, music, life. And love.
Ah, forget it, actually it is about much much more.
Told from the John's POV. He is chaotic, narcissistic, illogic, infidel and loyal, inconsistent, extremely conceited and intense.
He is just John. Most of you will probably hate him. But not me.
"John's narrative voice is one of the most unique in gay literature."
(That's not from me.)

And so is the story. It's just like a real life. And it has a HEA!!!


And here is my soundtrack for this book:
Why? Because
"Nathan liked music from all different decades, and he'd broadened my musical takstes and knowledge in ways I could never fully thank him for."(John)
and because Nathan's musical taste is very similar to mine. It's why I like him even more.
