Book Review: Class Distinctions by Rick R. Reed
The force that is Rick R. Reed continues to churn out some of the most addictive stories in the literary world today. From the time Unzipped magazine named him "the Stephen King of Gay Horror," Rick has been giving his readers one page turner after another.
What I find most interesting about this crowd pleasing author is his ability to go effortlessly from full out horror to character studies of human drama. Such is the case with Class Distinctions, Rick's latest e-book. This is the story of Kyle and Johnathan, a gay couple at Hamilton University, who are like bookends for one another. Until one evening when Kyle announces that he's ending their relationship.
What follows is an unstoppable trip into the life these two young men have shared as they face a wintry night of anger. The elements which brought them together are rediscovered, but Johnathan also comes to realize that something in Kyle's past is what is now tearing them apart. It's a journey into the bitterly cold night of their dilemma, to the bridge where they found their relationship, that sets the stage for this story's remarkable conclusion.
Reed really knows how to hook his readers. His use of language and imagery is spellbinding. The pictures his work creates are ones that his audience will never forget as they wait in anticipation for his next book.
