Absolutely BRILLIANT 35 StarsAsshole characters exert a strange fascination on me They are a weakness and a guilty pleasure But they only appeal to me when there is lots of grovelling involved until they finally redeem their selves The Price of Dick Different Class didn t turn out the way I wished It s not that kind of Romance There was no grovelling let alone redemption Needless to say I was leftisappointed I m blaming this on me though for having the pretension to assume that this story would be like many othersJJ was a Short Stories by Roald Dahl doormat and he knew it He was aoormat infatuated with Dick and that is where my Goldilocks the Three Bears disappointment with JJ solely stands Don t take me wrong JJ wasn t manipulative and bad as Dick but he had an agenda too He could have kicked Dick out of his life at any time but no He liked sharing the bills he liked having Dick around he liked Dick s charismatic act to recruit new guys and finally he saw chance in Dick to up his gameAnd Dick Well Dick was a DICK with all capital letters a scoundrel Heid unforgivable things Dick needed a place where he could stop the macho pretence a place where he could let the barriers own and be gay JJ was his golden ticket Such a sweetheart It was a hard story to swallow In my view the fucked up situation was a mutual arrangement where both would benefit And even though I was aware that the exploration was consensual by both parties I could not take it easily because this eal was not well balanced JJ was always the weakest link He couldn t see it though bloke was blind like a bat It took too long for JJ to wake up and realize that he Socialist Realism didn t need that that he couldo much betterI think I had a reverse reaction here Instead of being mad at Dick I was mad at JJ for taking all that crap from Dick One of the things that nagged me the most was listen to Dick make a pass at other guys with his bullshit I am not gay speech in every fucking photo shootGawd give me strength I am glad JJ found someone to give him a push I I Look Up To... Michelle Obama don t think he would have pulled his shit together on his own Alex grounded JJ Alex was the one who came up with the idea to transferback up the photos Alex pushed him to find a new place Alex opened JJ eyes about his financial situation and finally he was the one who thought about calling an attorney to fix that big mess Summing it up the grand finale was allown Doctor Extraño do AlexThis bookrove me mad We really eserved that HEAI am not sure my kindle would survive otherwise Another Monday BR with my amazing friends D Review When I first saw the cover and the title of the book I thought it will be a humorous book I was SO WRONG In a nutshell the book is all about this uote it is a ocumentation of how you can screw your life up when you think with your Never Tell dick instead of your head There is a guy that is like a God Dick extremely beautiful and sexy as hell But he lives a life of lies And JJ is so credulous he is so absorbed with Dick manipulative talk made me want to slap is face and say wake up This author as a way of expressing that blows my feelings I loved this book will never forget Dick and JJ storyespite the ending that I think was very fairy tallish but it Feminism is for Everybody deserves nevertheless my 5 stars rating So I spent the better part of yesterday reading about a hugeick Is there
Any Other Way To Spend A SundayMy Second Dan Skinner other way to spend a SundayMy second Dan Skinner and I loved it just as much as the first Memorizing You They are WORLDS apart as far as the subject matter but they are on eual ground as far as how much I enjoyed themThere will be SPOILERS my friends so read with caution if you haven t read the bookThe story is told from JJ s perspective As the book begins you pretty much know that he s been screwed over by a ick because he was thinking with his I will take the liberty in speaking for every male by saying that sometimes the penis seems to make a really great argument and that might lead to uestionable actions It s possible I ve been a victim of this from time to time so ve been a victim of this from time to time so can relate to JJ Let s face it the penis wants what the penis wants and sometimes it s like a magnet with a force that cannot be stopped In this case the magnet was rawn to one Richard Fitch but let s call him Dick JJ and Dick meet at the gym after JJ has been stalking him for a number of Comet in Moominland (The Moomins, days Again stalking is something that every gay male has probably stumbled on from time to time so I m still with JJ at this pointJJ and Dick form a friendship and the rest of the story is a twisty road of WTF Dickwhereo I start He is larger than life with a huge personality You are immediately Hunters Heart drawn to him as he seems like a great guy As time progresses littleents begin to appear in his armor and he is get away from me and less let s hang out on Friday #He Is A Liar And A Manipulator He S Totally #is a liar and a manipulator He s totally but so far in the closet that he can t even see the Menneskefluene (K2 door Not onlyoes he excel in telling a web of lies but he starts to pull JJ into those lies and JJ Nazi Gold does nothing to stop him because again he s thinking sexually and not rationally I can t fault JJ entirely When he would start to get angry and uestion himself about what he wasoing Dick would pull out all of the stops and Mr Majeika and the School Inspector do things that were incredibly generous and sweet This would reel JJ right back into his web It made him want to believe Dick even when he kneweep Selected Poems down inside that he shouldn tAs I kept reading I was floored by the things that were revealed Good God Dick was totally crazyseriously But with every crazy thing that was revealed I read faster as I wanted to make sure the JJ was okay in the end When you areealing with someone with the level of crazy that Dick was you just on t know what they will o if they are backed into a cornerI m not His name is Richard but he'll say Call me Dick He's a big butch brainy guy in an executive suit hotter than spit on a skillet The type of guy you can see fully ressed and imagine buck naked in the throes. .
Oing to write as it s really best to just read the book and see for yourself As much as I ended up hating Dick I think I hated his mother about 100 times She helped form Dick into what he became He loved her but could never please her Like I wrote earlier he was gay He knew it and she knew it But that idn t stop her from oing everything in her power to try and turn him into the perfect heterosexual She constantly harped on him about ating and he was always trying to please her even though he bitched about her to JJ all of the time He found comfort in JJ as he could be himself and JJ wouldn t judge him What JJ The Train Robbers didn t know is that Dick would lie to him as wellIon t think Dick knew how to live any other way He grew up No Reason To Die denying who he was and had to maintain that lie to fit in with his family I m not saying that he took the right path but I was able to sympathize with him as I was reading about his mother as she was a monsterIn a nutshell this wasn t a romance novel by any stretch but it was AWESOME I was totallyrawn in and could not be bothered with anything else That writing was exuisite I hated Dick but couldn t stop reading about him as it was just so goodTwo thumbs up and a lifetime fan of Dan Skinner An epic story5 The Price of DickGreat self reflections Awesome syntaxI love the world of thought A well full of vocabularyThere are so many awesome sentences that I want to highlightI loved the voyeuristic and exhibitionistic scenes very steamyIt was entertaining as hell funny witty ups and Naked Risk (Shatterproof downI think it s a Dan thing but at 30% i thought i read a whole book What can happen No there is much amaaaazingLots and lots of analizing It was getting and crazy Dick was aick pur sang Unbelievable manipulator psycho but also endearing in a convincingly way Locked in a closet with a steel Raking The Ashes door and twenty locks on it More aeep hole in the ground with a layer of cement over itSometimes a wanted to slap JJ for a wake up He was so captivated by Dick and hoped on progressDick turns his back to him and it gets Ellie (Ellie, dirtyThen he meets Alex the beautiful soul named AlexKarmaoes her work goodAn epic story I have to preface this review by telling you that I edited this book for Dan That in no way affects my honest assessment of the book s worth Ask anyone who knows me If I Dear Office-Politics don t like something I won t hesitate to tell you even if you ARE a friend I try to be nice about it though Whato you get when you combine a narcissistic sociopath with the face and Dan what Thomas Harriott did I just read One of theseays we need to have a uiet talk I really want to hurt Dick At the very least I hope he gets a lifetime of constant jock itch It makes me angry and hurt and then angry again If that s what you were going for you succeeded I hope every SOB that comes anywhere near as close to being like Dick contracts the same lifetime jock itch and is handled the way that Karma should handle people like that Very unusual book I ll probably add another star when I can get over how
