    Originally reviewed for Uniquely Pleasurable.First, a disclaimer This review covers the original publication of the novel and not the movie tie in version The movie varies substantially and is really rather dreadful from the original novel and it is unknown if the tie in version of the novel was rewritten to incorpora

    After reading the book, I m not sure why the trailers for the movie tried to pass it off as a thriller it s not creepy or scary or anything It s a mind puzzle and a mystery, but I guess Hollywood thinks its audience won t enjoy something cerebral they did the same thing with Stephen King s Secret Window its advertising campa

    Okay Within the first five pages, it became apparent that this book was about storytelling and truth and falsehood and embellishment Not only does the narrator, Gabriel Noone, tell the reader this point blank, but Armistead Maupin tells us that himself, by making the parallels between himself and his main character extremely easy t

    This might have got 5 stars if it hadn t been for the ending Once I picked it up, I couldn t bear tom put it down, I became so engrossed in the plotline and the mystery as to whether or not this boy really existed For me, fiction is at its best when the characters speak to something inside you and you can empathise with them and they become real

    I watched the movie a lot when I was a teen, it had of a creepy vibe to it This is bittersweet and kind of heartbreaking Amistead Maupin is a great storyteller, so I m interested in Tales of the City now.

    A psychological drama billed as a psychological thriller, but definitely not a thriller in my opinion that s equal parts weird and mundane Gabriel Noone, a writer who has gained fame through a radio serialisation of his stories, is sent a copy of a harrowing memoir written by a young boy who has suffered serious sexual abuse and is dying of AIDS Moved by the story, he star
