I loved the chapters about Tracey and Noah (I just loved Noah!) and watching their relationship develop, but I found the chapters regarding the wife and especially the headmaster dull and tedious to get through. I found myself putting this book down frequently and then struggling to pick it back up again. I almost made it to the end, but I really couldn't finish the last 10-15%. Other problems I had with this book is that it felt dated to me; obviously, because it was written in the 90s that's not entirely unexpected, but I also felt like it sort of perpetuated the stereotype of gay men as effeminate, promiscuous queens. I love those kinds of characters but in this book, every gay man we meet fell into this stereotype so I found it almost offensive. Also, I didn't mind this because it was fictional, but just be warned that Tracey and his friends were basically hebophiles, obsessed with 15 year old boys, so if you're offended by that then you should probably pass this up.
