Being Invisible Is Nick Dunill's MO For nineteen years he's been the one who disappears to his disapproving Midwestern family And now in New York City a metropolis of anonymity built on not making eye contact he feels right at home Walking the streets of the Village sneaking into dive bars cleaning apartments and trying to co exist in a cramped apartment with his three roommates Nick's trying to find his way without doing anything to. As I m doing some cleanup of my library and have to get rid of some books I decided this should be one of them so I may as well write three sentences about it To put it straightly this is not a good book It lacks structure it lacks resolution to most themes and subplots and even said themes were just there There is some sort of bildungsroman going there but it s really underdeveloped There are very promising ideas in this book that leads to nowhereSo Nick moves out from his parents of choice after first moving out of his small town where he felt rejected by family and the whole community because of being gay and starts living in a flat shared with three roommates He is also dealing with trauma after 119 tries to find his place in the world navigate friendships with people he s already known and new people who appear in his life and maybe just maybe find a happy little romance Sounds good Because for me it sounds just like a book I like reading a lot Yet nothing of it really happens It s there and sometimes it comes to the surface sometimes the author seems to forget about it altogether The lack of any romance was also a disappointment but I could be absolutely fine with it if the book was about coming of age of the hero But to be honest I can t answer this simple uestion what this book was about I really have no ideaSo why have I kept it for so long even though I usually get rid of unwanted books immediately Because there are two scenes I absolutely love Especially one that inspired me to write my own novel that otherwise has totally nothing to do with any of it but that one image To make it funnier the scenes I loved have no impact on the plot At all I have no idea what they do in this book I have no idea what the author was thinkingSeriously a little puzzle Completely unsatisfying thoughI wrote my favourite scenes down That will be enough

    It's not the worst book I have ever read but I must say that it is not part of the good book league too I thought the story was all over the place I really had no idea where Mr Beck wanted to go with the story Too many characters in one go I struggled really hard to keep track with all the names and it wasn't even a detective story I don't think I'll keep buying his books I don't have the chemistry with him I guess If I

    This was a book I was eager to read because in so many ways at least on the surface it very closely resembles the novel I am currently writing Like my protagonist the story centers around a 19 year old who leaves home because of the rejection and alienation he feels for being gay He moves to a big city in this case Manhattan in my story Brian moves to San Francisco in hopes of finding acceptance and the chance to be himself and live life f
