Review by: Artboy11211 on Nov. 24, 2011 :
I wanted to like this book, however I didn't. I loved it on many intricate levels. How a writer can pull a reader through a book, delivering timeless messages, interwoven story lines, guide emotions until the last word and leave the reader astonished and gasping for more is beyond me. Beatitude is writing and art at its highest.

This is a masterfully presented story as universal as the sun and offers a look inside ourselves, exposing the reality and complexity of life, friendship and love. I felt Harry's or Jay's gender could have been changed at any point in any potential combination and the book would have been equally poignant, touching and haunting. Personally, I was at the end of the book feeling that I had read only 10 pages thanks to a dialog-driven narrative that magically dispensed the entire story in one fantastically 'scrolling' novel.

Not unlike some movies, this is one of those rare books that leave you breathless and in awe of the beauty within the message. I do hope this book finds an audience because it is meant to be read and passed on.

What's your road, man?
