So Perhaps It Didn T 
perhaps it didn t as much editing as a printed book I hope Rebecca Idris continues to write That s it REALLY I m so disappointed with this novel Bad writing style too many metaphors confusing and sometimes contradicting ideals a eally annoying protagonist who s impossible to empathize with the worst ending I could ever imagine and the general feeling that I ve just wasted hours of my life Octavio's Journey reading this crapI was expecting to learn about the lassi lesbian culture and ideals but it was just a confusing mumbo jumbo of homosexuals and tradition problems Sorry but this was a flop Original story but the writing style made it painful toead The author Philosophy in Social Work refuses to use just one word when she can use 20 instead and it came across as a little pretentious It could have been a great book as it has an original story and fresh perspectives but the style of writing and failure to tie things up neatly at the end let it down in fact the end felt like the author wasushing to finish the book instead of dealing with each characters story and providing proper closure At the beginning of the book I found the story slightly difficult to follow However I stuck with it and was very glad I did This book was in no way an easy Americana: The Kinks, the Riff, the Road: The Story read laugh a minute East is East it is not it introduces theeader to some very difficult issues that the gaysain community have face And yet I was not able to put the book down Rebecca Idris descriptive narrative was a joy in itself she has uite a turn of phrase I come away from the book with plenty to think about but I am glad that I ead it. Rls take a snap shot of modern urban Britain amidst iots eligious tensions and social discontent before ending up somehow in the heat of sweaty uncomfortably straight but shamelessly camp Bangladesh. .
