Best Gay Love Stories Reviews
Like most of the short story collections I have read I liked some of them more than others. Though I didn't find any stories in this collection that I wanted to skip over. Some favourites from this collection included:Marchen to a Different Beat - Hansel from the fairy tale is now a teenager wishing for love and a date to the prom. A Man's Man - set in Nelson, New Zealand in a retirement home. Deep Trouble Undercover - an undercover cop falls for a suspect. Me Too - communication problems between partners. All in all a good collection of stories on different themes and variations of love.
This should be re-titled "Best Gay Pseudo-Erotica." Except for one story, they all involve hardcore sex, drug abuse, or AIDS. Some people might equate "love" and "sex," but I don't. I guess that's why I didn't relate to these stories and appreciate them. They ARE written quite well, though. I just don't think they should all be in a compilation of love stories.
I enjoyed this, but accidentally bought two copies and have listed it for swapping. I don't completely agree with the reviewer who objected to calling these love stories. There are many aspects to love, and these well-written stories are not just about sex.
While I enjoyed most of the stories, I found myself wanting more from them. It was like reading an entire book of excerpts from novels.
Some of the stories in this were more enjoyable than others. I particularly liked the one with the train, and the ghost story was creepily good :D
Still searching for a clean, gay love storie. This book has one and overall was a fine read.
