    Kindle franzbielmeier.de ↠ My Policeman PDF/EPUB ´ policeman pdf, My Policeman PDFI was both fascinated and immensely annoyed by this book The blurb describes it as a tragic love story of a man and a woman both in love with the same man in a time the 1950s when it is safer for him to marry the woman and maintain a front of respectability As a longtime reader of LGBT fiction it sounded like exactly the sort of book I would loveI didn't In the spirit of fairness I should list its good points 1950s Brighton is beautifully vivid and the prevailing attitudes of the time are well captured Patrick and his mother are wonderful characters Julia a relatively minor character yet an important one is great and the relationship between Tom and Patrick feels era appropriately dangerousHowever Marion the main protagonist is an out and out bitch I don't use that word lightly but honestly I don't think I've hated a female character this much since Mary Anne in the Tales of the

    Kindle franzbielmeier.de ↠ My Policeman PDF/EPUB ´ policeman pdf, My Policeman PDFThis is well written and certainly captures the feeling of living in a time and place when homosexuality was illegal and when anyone who didn't avoid any connection with it was liable to pay a heavy price As a story it'sfine It's a perfectly good book But I felt that there was always something there just out of reach something a little deeper a little hard hitting something that could grab the reader if only it was said And that something never really showed up Not chick lit because well chick lit doesn't usually hit this kind of subject matter But it does feel a little like chick lit which isn't necessarily a bad thing because every genre has its place But I wa

    Kindle franzbielmeier.de ↠ My Policeman PDF/EPUB ´ policeman pdf, My Policeman PDFSad sad sad Such a beautifully written book one that really got inside the hearts and minds of the 3 main characters Fabulously set in late 1950s and present day Brighton this book was totally compelling and very telling about how difficult it was being gay or indeed a woman in those times I was struck by the sadness of each of the characters in this book and the way most people in the story both primary and minor characters had such empty and wasted lives Ms Roberts' descriptions of lives led without much meaning cut deep This was a story that will linger with me for uite a while It calls to mind the Thoreau uote the mass of men lead lives of uiet desperation My Policeman is highly recommended and I also think it would make a great movie

    Kindle franzbielmeier.de ↠ My Policeman PDF/EPUB ´ policeman pdf, My Policeman PDFI can't even begin to describe how distressing reading this book was semi spoilerThere were no happy bits and from the get go I knew how much of a btch Marion was going to be I felt for her in the beginning and her feelings were valid but not valid enough to destroy someone's life like that for a person that didn't even want her as bad as she did them There was something about her character that was so discouraging and everything she said just irritated me I felt nothing for Tom but felt everything for Patrick He was the only character I actually tolerated Nonetheless this book gave an engrossing view of how lives were destroyed because of bigotry and ignorance
