Edmund Marlowe brings out new for me thoughts on man/boy -- love/sex.
First off he says sex between men and boys isn't homosexual sex because boys and men are different, they are different sexes. Then he says this sex that still has no name is the reason Classical Greece had such an impact on forming our Western Culture, much more than much larger Empires, such as the Roman Empire and Empires of the East. Then he proves it with his description of the actual sex between the boy and the man and the good/great effects it had on both.
He calls the bureaucrats that enforce our laws against this kind of sex, fog as well as barbarian pig heads who think they are educated because of the overwhelming reception they get from our uneducated masses he says mirror the masses of the 1930's and 40's in Germany. He says there is no hope for us, we are evil through and through.
I say, there are things that have caused us to be evil through and through and because of that we can change them and thus change our thinking and actions.
You must know the story moves slowly in the beginning. There must be a lot of exposition because of what Edmund Marlowe wants to say. Be patient with him. He will thoroughly engross you in the story. The sex is not added on it is integral to what Marlowe is saying to us.
You will want to read every word on every one of the 416 pages of `Alexander's Choice'.

This novel gives us a unique view of the sexual life of various characters (students and teachers) at Eton some time ago. The character of young Alexander is adorable and this might become a "spoiler" if I write any more. Five stars. Well deserved.

A realistic glimpse into life at Eton College during the conservative 1980s, well written, with identifiable characters and the whole gamut of human experience and emotion, and realistically tragic ending. Made me remember my youth, made me laugh and made me cry.

This is a deeply enthralling novel for most of the book. The feelings and thoughts of individuals involved are rendered quite realistically. However the last portion of the book devolves into political pontificating which causes the rest of the book to be forgotten in the process.
4,0 su 5 stelleA realistic portrayal of the disparate maleness of boys and men finally.
DaGilbert J. Hardwickil 10 marzo 2013 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
I thought the whole very realistic. The author had the boys' characters down impeccably, especially Alexander's and Damian's. I know so very many boys like him, not only from boarding school but years of raising so many; so many in the house all the time, and living with their antics, yet too few men these days possessed of such insight, free of their induced hangups and guilt-trips.
This work is important especially in the way the disparate maleness of men and boys is being explored finally in literature. The tragic figures are thus not singular but dual; their mutual joy and suffering paired rightly and properly in their relationship both as it is contemplated and as it unfolds.
In the event I felt keenly for both these central figures. I found myself as upset by the way Alexander was treated by the 'child protection system' as Damian was treated by 'the authorities'; I've been through it myself and I know from first hand experience what they are like. The portrayal of their arguments and attitudes is sadly accurate.
I applaud Alexander's final heartfelt rejoinder to them, "You don't know anything!"
The way conflicting Julian too is portrayed was accurate and reliable, though I didn't like him or trust him from the start. As the plot progressed he acted true to type. His parents are sadly too familiar to me, especially his soul-sick feminist, grasping, ambitious mother.
This work is thoroughly recommended to anyone concerned with maleness and coming of age in contemporary Anglophone society.
