ARC REVIEW : Olive Juice by T.J. Klune

It begins with a message that David cannot ignore:

I want to see you.

He agrees, and on a cold winter’s night, David and Phillip will come together to sift through the wreckage of the memory of a life no longer lived.

David is burdened, carrying with him the heavy guilt of the past six years upon his shoulders.

Phillip offers redemption.

Olive Juice by T.J. Klune
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is dark and full of surprise that's (actually) not really surprise at all.
I knew what will hit me soon after one thing lead to another.
But I still didn't prepare that I will feel all the pain and crying so much. I thought I was strong enough for this kind of book. But apparently not.

I feel like I knew David and Phillip, what's their story and all.
There's tears, and a deep wounded between the two men. This is not a happy story. It's a little death, according what they had been trough.
This is like David's diary about what happened in their life, the before and after. Because we're only read from David perspective. I need to know Phillip too.

I hope I didn't give you any spoilers, but I hope I can give you some spoilers. But I cannot.
You have to go blind if you decided to read this book. Then you'll feel what I and some early readers feel.
Punch in a gut, angst in a top of angst, anger and a long sadness. Don't expect romance and sex, I don't think this one is romance.
This is David's story.
I didn't really (enjoy) the book , because..Man, what kind of person are you if you "enjoy" it?
I still think you need to read this one. Prepare for a deep thoughts and some tissues...
I need a book of 'happy' after this...
