    A Truely Fun Read-Recommended

    'Sparkle' is a funny, sexy, and adventurous blend of the timeless and memorable 'Tales of the City' series with the modern and equally fantastic 'Beach Reading' series. Rob Rosen weaves a story that can't be labeled. He does a great job of giving the reader a big tablespoon taste of everything. The queerest book you'll ever read has something for everyone from seeing his first manhood, (other than his own), to painful body piercing, discovering the pains of drag, and finishing with a touching and heart felt series of events that will lead a stronger and prouder Secret home to visit his family. The books starts with, who shot Sparkle? The suspects are many, and the list grows longer as the story goes along. Sparkle teaches, (or manipulates, however you see it), Secret not only how to be out, but also how to live life to its fullest. With each of their escapades, the Gay Rules add up, and so do Secret's dates as his search for Mister Right continues. Secret is easy to fall in love with, (for me, he's Mouse from 'Tales of the City'), not just because his best friend is a mean and rude jerk that those who have ever had the misfortune to have met Sparkle keep far, far away and avoid him at all costs, but because he wants a relationship with someone to share a house, with a dog, and a life with and not just a life full of one night stands. I'm not sure about the warning beginning the book, that had me laughing out loud and sharing the book with my straight friends, but wouldn't it be funny if reading it did turn them from straight to gay.

    Secret Rules!

    I must say, I never write reviews. However, this one took me by storm. I was hooked from chapter one and could not put it down. Being soemone who lives in SF, I could picture almost every scene in my head as it played out. For me as a reader, a book passes muster if I feel like I'm there with the characters. This book kept me engaged and laughing thruout. I, literally, couldn't put it down until I was finished. Excellent JOB!

    and it's true !!!

    the title of the book says it all, SPARKLE IS the queerest book you will ever read and you WILL love IT !! EVERYONE will be able to identify with the main characters in some way or another. The author has a unique way of recounting the tales that the characters have gone thru, you'll experience a rollercoaster of emotions, from joy to sadness to anger. The setting is the city of San Francisco, if you love SF, you have to read this book. buy it .. read it .. enjoy it .. love it !!
