That's how it went for me, I wasn't able to see how good the book was, as I was angry at Marion for obvious reasons and even slightly upset at Tom.
You want these characters to be happy, you want them to be honest with each other, and more importantly, you want them to be true to themselves. BUT NOOO.
We follow Marion as she retells the story of how she met and fell in love with Tom.
We follow Patrick as he meets and falls in love with Tom.
And, we never get to read about how Tom felt. Tom's feelings are entirely dependent on what others think about him.
Marion, oh Marion... I lost years of my life to this woman. I wanted to punch her, so desperately. She did the unthinkable and didn't give a second thought to the consequences.
What she did was just awful, and I couldn't understand how naive she could be, thinking that would be a solution. She was terrible and didn't care about anyone else as long as she got what she wanted.
OFC, I think Tom should have told her and not assumed that apparently she knew and was ok with it. To be honest, if he did tell her the truth early on as he did with Patrick, she would have said yes anyway. This is how blinded by love she was. (But there's no need for my wishful thinking).
A couple of things that I really enjoyed reading were the parts that dealt with Tom's relationship with his mother and the relationship between Tom and Patrick that felt era-appropriately dangerous.
But that ending, that ending was all kinds of heartbreaking. When Marion finally came clean about her actions, of course, she disappeared and leaves them to deal with it. (Marion is a true jackass until the end). Even in the end, she had to address decades of loss, pain, and fear about her own guilt and redemption. *rolling my eyes until September*
It really annoyed me that years, if not decades, slipped by without being acknowledged. Consequences of revelations that weren't explored.
And most importantly, we never know how Tom feels. We can only guess, based on what Marion perceives. The majority of those are probably incorrect since she tends to focus on herself. *BYE MARION, BYE*
I wouldn't consider this a gay romance, nor an exploration of the difficulties of maintaining a public face and an illegal private love. This is because we mostly read from a straight women's perspective, and most of the time it's just plain awful and difficult to empathize with her.
