    Mystery, love story, travelogue ?
    I had a very difficult time with this first novel. The plot is convoluted to the point that I had a problem trying to sort through all the main characters. Each chapter brings another element into the plot with expansive, even rambling description that does nothing to move the story along. I felt I was being exposed to the author's diligent research. I would not recommend this book.

    The Fisher Boy
    I normally don't read mystery books, but thought the description of this one sounded like it would be a little different, more fun, in a way.

    I was also not prepared for how much of the book was about gay people/being gay/gay issues. I found that I had a hard time getting into the whole premise, and I really didn't like any of the people in there much either. I have nothing against gays, I just don't find it interesting to have a book go on about it that much. For some reason, the story never grabbed me and I just didn't care about the characters or their situation, which to me is an important part of whether I like a book or not. So I must say that overall I was disappointed by this book, even though it did have some fun moments now and then.
