The writing is so good that I found myself occasionally pausing and wondering just how James Baldwin constructed such beautiful sentences He has a uniue style with a uniue way of sentence structure that took a VERY brief moment to get into but once I did I found the text flowing beautifully as if I was on a literary boat ride moving up and down with the swells There was a lot of pathos in the story and the characters were fully fleshed out It is remarkable that this book was written in the early fifties The description on the back of the book is slightly misleading in that it is not really a love triangle that phrase is not stated but implied as much as a story about two men one of which has a not present fiancee who is only tangentially important to the story I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who appreciates beautifully written well thought out plots with engaging characters

The emotion and feelings of the narrator, even when confused and conflicted, just pours out.

It's the kind of book where you wish you could move forward about two years after the end of the book to see what happens. Whether the characters wer

I found this classic to be grey, lifeless, lacking any emotional or character engagement or development or empathy. The writing is flat and often grammatically incorrect (he does not know the difference between a comma and a full stop) and laboured. Is there a plot? Do I care about any of the lifeless characters? No. This was one of the dullest books I have read in a long time. Who was David?

    (Pdf Read) Giovannis Room I thought this book was very well written.
    It's not a book I can say I enjoyed although I'm glad I read it.
    None of the characters are happy and any happiness they find is short lived. They are unhappy about their own sexuality and this spills into all aspects of their life's. They cannot be happy because of who/what they are.
