It put the nail in the coffin before things ever had a chance to start25 not for me stars PDF ë Thunder Snow  Owen Keehnen

Owen Keehnen  Thunder Snow TEXT Jim has joined a fraternity and is dating a nice sorority girl Love blindsides him when Jim meets Glenn who has relocated to the town of Windsor from New York City Glenn has come to town as the kept lover of wealthy Windsor resident Raymond Channing Bored by the lack of stimulation in small town Glenn Thunder Snow is a narrative written in a simply stated almost clinical fashion I really like it as I imagine it being read aloud much like it would narrated scenes from a movie Each character is clearly and cleverly depicted with minimal dialogue to fill in the blanks This delivery is intense and evokes a certain emotional uality which I haven't experienced in a long long timeWhile reading this story I was transported back to my own days of college and the empty campus during winter break It's almost a microcosm of real life so than college life when class is in session and social structure demands compliance The connection between Jim and Glenn is the epitome of what it's like to capture love and a zest for life during the uiet space of winter holidays Its perfect basis in romantic literature is both fulfilling and foreboding in the way Shakespeare is always the perfect tragic love story Keehnen pens a story of sexual awakening and maturation coupled with the complexity of life What we find is that sometimes despite the best of intentions life and expectations truly can get in the way of happiness Even the best most precious gifts must be treasured and not taken for grantedIn the spirit of the upcoming season I urge you to give Thunder Snow a try It's perhaps a little deeper and darker than your typical winter themed seasonal short but you won't want to miss it It gives me pause for deep thought and reflection about the people and things I cherish something we can all use a bit of over the holidaysThis review can also be found at www3chicksafterdarkcom
