[mini-REVIEW] Max Vos: My Hero

Mittwoch, 12. November 2014


When he was sixteen years old, Rich Miller saved a young man from drowning at his local pool. Little did he know that years later, as a senior in college and Olympic diving hopeful, Rich would meet up once again with Johnny Milloway, now a big football player – and when Rich says big, he really means ‘bear’. The shy jock remembers his saviour, and the two men become friends.
Johnny isn’t put off by the fact that Rich is gay. In fact, the more time he spends with Rich, the more curious he becomes. Johnny wants to know all kinds of things – what it’s like to kiss a guy, for instance. Only it doesn’t stop there… 

Rich finds it difficult to believe that this relationship can go anywhere. Johnny is straight, and Rich isn’t prepared to deal with the heartache he knows will come his way in the future. He has enough on his plate as it is – the Worlds are just around the corner, his father would rather watch a football game than spend time watching his son dive…. What he doesn't count on is Johnny, who can be very determined. And having Johnny in his life proves to be a catalyst for some pretty earth-shattering changes.


Offen gestanden, habe ich bisher noch kein einziges Buch gelesen, bei dem ich das Gefühl hatte, dass einer der Protagonisten einfach ... na ja, fast ein bisschen doof ist. Anders kann ich es nicht ausdrücken. Denn genau so wirkt Johnny auf mich. Einfach ... nicht ganz so helle. Ein Umstand, der sich durch die an sich auch nicht sehr ausgefallene Story zieht und ihr leider auch nicht weiter guttut. Das Geld, das ich dafür bezahlt habe, ist mir dieses E-Book jedenfalls nicht wert ...
