Muscling Through

Better than to split up this mismatched pair Is it physical Oh yes it’s deliciously physical and so much which makes Larry’s next task so daunting Not just convincing his colleagues friends and family that their relationship is than skin deep It’s convincing Al Contains comic misunderstandings misuse of art materials and unexpected poignanc I read this a few days ago and had to think for a bit about my review because there is a complicated issue that could be taken in a couple of ways in this story It s a sweet romance between two men but there is a huge disparity between them that could be problematic for many readers in that it is hard to see them as eualsThe main character and narrator in this book is Alan and he is slow is the word that comes to mind You are in his thoughts the whole time and he really doesn t understand what is happening around him most of the time He seems to have the intelligence of a child but is able to get by in life and holds a job It s hard to decide if he is mentally disabled or just of a lower intelligence level But at the same time he is endearing Sweet Innocent in many ways SimpleThe other hero is his boyfriend Larry who is a university professor He finds Al s presence comforting because Al is huge and scary looking Larry doesn t mind that Al is not smart because he says he gets enough intellectual stimulation at work He appreciates the simplicity of Al s feelings and also sees Al s art which speaks to himSo Al is an artist but like a savant maybe It s hard to say No training just raw talent and instincts He is finding some success with Larry s helpSo is Larry taking advantage of this big dumb guy because he likes his looks and the sex Or is he taking advantage of him through the art thing It s hard to say That s what makes this book hard to reviewBut it is still a sweet interesting story with a lot of shower thought material when you get to wondering just how much intellectual difference can a relationship have before it becomes a taking advantage situation Is there an ethical dilemma when there is such ineuality in a relationship We protect children from adult relationships and have rules to keep people in authority positions from relationships with those they have control over Should there be protections in place for mentally challenged people when it comes to relationships

J.L. Merrow × 4 review

The bigger they come the harder they fall in loveCambridge art professor Larry Morton takes one alcohol glazed look at the huge tattooed man looming in a dark alley and assumes he’s done for Moments later he finds himself disarmed literally and figuratively And the next morning he can’t rest until he offers an apology to the man who turned out t You must ve been waiting for someone like me to come along I said I meant because of the big bedBut Larry looked at me all funny and said Yes I think I was This book made me so happy The first chapter got me laughing like crazy and my smile stayed on for the two three hours it took for me to read this Books like these make me wish I knew English better than I do because I just don t know the words to describe this book It was just amazing And totally differentThe storyI loved it The beginning OMG I don t remember the last time I read such a good introduction to a book it had me laughing from page one D Such a great idea for their first meeting Al and Larry s paths cross in an alley where Larry mistakes Al for a muggerrapist DHe s scared shtless and begs Al not to hurt him Al doesn t really understand why Larry s so afraid of him thinking he must be drunk or something The dialogue in this scene OMG I coludn t stop laughing Al kept saying stuff that Larry misinterpreted and that got him even scared Here are one of my favorites D I tried to give him his wallet back but he had his eyes shut again so I put it in my pocket I think he needed to get to bed I m going to get you home and in bed I told himHe wasn t walking too good so I put my arm round his skinny little waist I could have snapped him in half I could snap you in half I said and I smiled so he d know it was a joke but he still had his eyes shutHe was standing by a knife block with this big knife in one hand and a phone in the other I thought he s going to have trouble trying to dial one handed I m calling the police he said in this funny high voiceI didn t get why he wanted the police but the knife in his hand was shaking all over the shop so I went and took it off him before he could hurt himself Anyway Larry soon sees his mistake and after he apologizes they go on a drink and soon after that they hook up D won t say any if you want to know read the book DThe charactersLarry is a sweet guy and I liked him very much but the spotlight goes to Al all the way Don t really remember ever reading about a character like him before and it was refreshing to see someone different in the lead roleI don t really know how to describe Al to you allHe isn t educated and sometimes doesn t understand when Larry s talking all smart with him D He s totally straightfoward always says what s on his mind in the most direct wayHe doesn t get sarcasm and has a very simple view of the worldHe can t understand why Larry wants to be with him and same goes with LarryHe is such a good person I just loved the hell out of him There was a point in the book where my heart ached for Al and how he couldn t understand what was wrong with him and Larry but the ending was just so beautiful The only awkward point was the sex kind of weird to read Still even with that I absolutely loved it A book that can keep me smilinglaughing out loud from first to last page and one that made me love the characters so much deserves a 5 star rating without a doubt
