My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Hmmm, this was totally different from all of the books written by Mary Calmes that I had read. The writing style is the same, the talent of dishing out a story is still brilliant, and yet...?
Varro Dacien spends his life riding toward the next adventure. Brian Christie, his best friend and touchstone, the one person who’s always truly seen him, plays sidekick on these madcap adventures and subsequent trips to the hospital until he can’t take it anymore. While Brian can see Varro, Varro has never caught on that he’s breaking his best friend’s heart.
Without Varro, Brian builds himself a life that’s all about just getting by, doing his best to ignore the hole in his heart and his life. Without Brian to balance him, Varro pushes harder and takes more risks to reach that ultimate high. His job racing high-octane bikes on suicide-level courses makes it easy to get that rush… until it’s no longer enough and Varro realizes it’s not the race, but who’s waiting at the finish line that truly matters. Now he just has to convince Brian to be there.
I don't know? But I felt that the whole story was pretty strange? It is a very intense story and there were some parts I was uncomfortable with - stalkish - well sort of.
The love? I don't know - this type of love I would not want to even be involved with as it was fatalistic in a sense.
Strange and brilliant. That is all I can say.
