Review: Comeback Love, by Peter Golden

22 Feb

Summary from Goodreads:

Shifting between past and present, Comeback Love is a journey into the hearts of two lovers who came of age in the 1960s and is a sensual exploration of youth, regret, desire, and the bonds that mysteriously endure in the face of momentous change.

I want to start by saying that no matter if I liked it or not, it’s a good book. Really well written, it flows with ease, etc. However, it wasn’t at all what I expected, and definitely not my type of book. The love story is beautiful, I won’t deny that. But sometimes the skipping between past and present made it confusing, as well as Glenna’s character, who I thought was repetitive.

I sided with Gordon whenever they fought, and didn’t really like Glenna throughout the book.

At time, I got tired of the skipping, but wanted to keep reading because of Gordon, and I wanted to know what he came back for, etc.

It was a good book… I’m sad this review is short, but it just wasn’t my type of book. I love romance, but theirs was not specially memorable for me. Considering I disliked Glenna since the beginning, when the relationship ended I didn’t feel quite unhappy about it.

What I liked: the whole head-over-heels first love feeling represented in the characters. Definitely.

Thank you, Simon & Schuster for providing this book for review!
