I just finished reading this book written by the famous script writer Ricky Lee.
First things first, this is not for teenagers. It contains too much mature content like foul language, violence and sex.
This book is about love, 5 love stories and their endings. I’m not saying it’s happy.
Each chapter is dedicated to one story and the stories’ main characters are women. They are (in random order) Ester, Erica, Sandra, Bessie and Irene.
It’s kind of a mixture of fantasy and reality. Ricky Lee has an impressive way of activating your imagination in the weirdest way possible.
There’s a story about long lost love, incest, lesbians (although they don’t call themselves that), unrequited love and denied love.
I guess the best there is was that each one was able to accept the situation they were in and be relatively happy with how it ended up.
I’m not sure what Ricky Lee is pointing out here but at the end it showed that it is better to let go of a love instead of holding on for too long and hope that someway or somehow it will end up the way you want it. Reality happens the way it does, no one can edit or delete anything.
I give it 3 out of 5 Stars.
