Mise of new love Bashed charts the course of a journey from grief to hope from death to life and from hate to redemption Come along on a trip that encompasses suspense horror and ultimately romance. Rick Reed s Bashed is an amazingly compelling novel that depicts the brutality and aftermath of a horrific hate crime In the opening chapter we are introduced to Donald and Mark an endearingly devoted gay couple who are just approaching the second year of their romantic relationship They are madly in love and as they leave a leather bar together that love is confronted by unimaginable hatred They are violently attacked by a group of three young assailants weilding aluminum baseball bats and young Mark is killed This is the beginning of the story From this point Reed takes the reader on an emotional rollercoaster ride that surprises and frightens He not only explores the mind and emotions of Donald the surviving victim but also Ronny and Justin two of the bashers I was in awe of Reed s ability to paint such clear pictures of his setting by describing seemingly minute and insignificant details I felt as if I understood the emotions and thought processes of each character I was astonished by Reed s command of the English language and by his impressive and expansive vocabulary His writing style flowed and he varied his sentence structure in a manner that skillfully avoided any appearance of choppiness or uncertainty Initially my reaction to the horrendous crime was to hate the criminals but by the end of the story I felt compassion and pity for them It was not so much hatred that fueled their violence as it was fear They were afraid of who they were They were afraid of the honesty and openness that Donald and Mark s love demonstrated I yearned for healing and forgiveness to occur I wanted Donald to stop hurting and to be happy I wanted Mark to return Bashed is a story about love It is a story about a beautiful loving couple who are ripped apart by tragedy It is about the conseuences of homophobia It is about the importance of providing parental guidance to our society s youth It is about learning how to forgive It is about having the courage to start over after you ve lost everything you cared about Bashed is a rare find It is a book that touched my soul and I recommend it whole heartedly
