READ & DOWNLOAD Ý Clicking Beat on the Brink of Nada FREE READ ´ PRIMACLEANSEPLUSUK.CO.UK ó Keith Hale FREE READ Clicking Beat on the Brink of Nada By turns funny romantic erotic and sad this evocative novel brilliantly recreates the landscape of late adolescence when friendships seem eternal and loves reincarnate Set in Arkansas but first published in Amsterdam under the title Clicking Bea. Cody or as its author wanted to title it and as he did in the reprint edition Clicking Beat on the Brink of Nada is at the same time one of the most easy and most difficult novel I have read Easy because you fall in love for all the characters Trotsky Cody Mark Freddy Christian Flipping Sarah all of them so real and simple that they can be your high school mate your neighbour your brother easy because despite being written in an almost immaculate style if not perfect at all it s not boring or pedantic and it calls both to young adult than adult readers Difficult because it s one of the saddest novel I have ever read but it s a strange type of sad I m not crying as often do when I m moved by a novel it s like clamp around the heart a feeling I think will remain long after I put down this bookI knew this was not an happily ever after novel I was not expecting it but the range of reviews run from nice to awesome so I had to read it And really I m happy it was worth the experience plus for most of the book even if knowing I had not the feeling of imminent drama the mood was really in line with the story they were teenagers we were talking about and as teenagers they behaved In some point slightly funny in some other very romantic and sometime even a little bit sexy I really forgot that I was supposed to wait for a tragedy to strikeTrotsky is in love with Cody but Cody is straight This is not an unreuited love since even if Trotsky is not able to realize his love for Cody they nevertheless build a strong relationship something that is for sure than friendship Plus Cody is really the epitome of best friend someone that will be always there when you need you most and that will arrive to do everything to bring you comfort Something that I like of Cody is that I think he was confident of his sexuality and so not threatened by the fact that someone could be gay even before Trotsky Cody had a bond with Christian who is openly gay and he doesn t uestion him or Flipping Christian s friend and maybe lover The bond between Trotsky and Cody is strong a bond probably stronger than loveTrotsky will find love in the arms of Mark his little brother s best friend Mark is 14 years old against Trotsky 17 but he is way experienced on a sexual level It s Mark that seduces Trotsky and it s at the same time an healing and learning sex Healing because it allows Trotsky to balance his relationship with Cody learning because it gives him a piece of him that was essential for his growing something he would not be able to find with Cody Both Cody than Mark are essential to Trotsky s development into a man and I agree with another reviewer who was hoping for Keith Hale to write a novel about an adult Trotsky sadly I don t think it s in the stars and to whom wants to know what happened to Trotsky I think the only way is to imagine he is maybe a poet he is maybe a teacher he is maybe an activist in a way or the other I think he made his own all the teachings he received from Christian Mark Freddy Cody and all the wonderful soul he met the year when he was seventeenhttpwwwdp141965991X

I am still reeling from the emotional ending of this book First I have to say that the novel itself was not written in the most correct manner some sentence structures being artificial and a little distracting at first Then I got into the rhythms of the story and the characters grew on me with such intense emotions that I continued on regardless of some possible errors or overused speaking language This book is short but deals with so many themes of weight that it is hard to remember them all friendship developing into romance coming out and coming of age first major tragedies in life loss grief and depression shared existences growing apart and the depths of true love There is a little Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance in there with the theme of philosophically trying to find one s way as balanced with the ways of those around you I was so upset at Trotsky s choices involving Mark and Cody near the end that I wanted to shake him but remembered that he s young and even though great SPOILER SPOILER these wounds will heal and I am hopeful that he will find his special someone that loves him in exactly the same way as he loved Cody I was so pleased that there were poems and some shared poems at the end to bring us back into the power we felt between them rather than ending the way it did The poems were excellent as well
