Everyday History

Everyday History - Alice Archer
4,5 stars

A perfect book doesn’t exist. A perfect book that readers of various ages, backgrounds, genders, social status, with different tastes in books and genres will find equally well.
I become aware of this fact especially when I come across a book that touched me in a special way, that hit the right buttons and pulled the right strings in my perception of a good read, but I kinda not sure whom I can recommend it to.

Everyday History is one of those books.

Some of you might find it odd and frustrating:

Keyword: Student-teacher-relationship.
Keyword: Changing POVs.

Some of you will love it to pieces:

Keyword: Everyday History's ARTICLES.

I can pretty well understand the both lagers. What I won't be able to understand EVER: if this book leaves you indifferent.

It is a love story, a very intense and sensual love story. And it is brilliantly written love story, and it is an unusually told love story. In spite of the fact that the whole story-line is focused on Ruben and Henry, they are apart for the most part of it. But even if they don’t spend a lot of time together physically and even if there are no detailed sex on the pages, it is one of the most erotic books I’ve ever read.

Reading it was like going through a thick heavy fog of sexual tension...

Reading it was like listening a melancholic beautiful music...

Reading it was like watching in slow motions how a magnificent flower bursts into blooming...

Reading it was like falling in love deeply desperately, madly.

Reading it was like experiencing all these emotions by my own...
