Overview

The Fall by Ryan Quinn, Kate Rudd, Nick Podehl, Benjamin L. Darcie

Nestled in the Pennsylvania countryside, Florence University frames an idyllic college world, complete with cute coeds and handsome jocks — not to mention plenty of booze and sex with virtually no responsibility. For three seniors approaching graduation, the vagaries of life have rarely been so terrifying. Film buff Ian is at a loss as to what to do with the rest of his life — or what to do about the football player he has been fantasizing about. Haile is an accomplished classical musician, a veteran violinist who is taking a break from touring to finish her education, explore her dream of becoming a singer-songwriter, and escape her controlling mother. Casey is the handsome football star whose seemingly perfect existence masks an unsatisfactory love life and an inexplicable restlessness for something…more. Drawn together by their struggles for identity, the three students form a fateful friendship that will change the courses of their lives forever. Sexy, fast paced, and layered with intimate insight about life’s most formative years, The Fall is a compelling coming-of-age story about what happens when we are forced to confront who we are and who we want to become.

This book draws you in and wont let you put it down. I finished it in a weekend and was quite impressed by this first-time author. I'm anxious to see what comes next from him.

More fun than a Grisham novel! And as rich as the classics. My only regret is that I started it late in the evening, because I couldn't put it down and was exhausted the next day. I found myself caring about all the characters (and wanting to be with one of them!). Such a well-written, engaging, enlightening novel; a stellar read for all ages.

I just finished the book...I miss the characters already. Ryan Quinn penned a fun, honest, and captivating read into the lives of three, young college students as they go through personal challenges and changes. I found myself smiling, frowning, laughing, and scoffing along with IAN, CASEY, and HAILE as I turned page after page of THE FALL. The individual voice of each character is accentuated by the interesting use Facebook updates, musical references, and film script. THE FALL was an entertaining, touching, uplifting, and, at times, suspenseful read from beginning to end.

I was quickly drawn into each of the characters; excited to be a part of their personal journeys. Unexpected and entertaining the novel kept me wanting more. An important commentary on youth today, I highly recommend this book to all ages.

Quinn's debut novel, The Fall, is a modern hit for young adults. The story follows a handful of college friends as they forge themselves into the characters they hope to be. I especially liked how Quinn went beyond stereotypes to show the humanity in each of his characters. Witty and engaging, it was hard for me to put this book down.

I was very impressed with how the author wove the stories of each of the main characters together, while maintaining the authenticity of each of their voices. The Fall is a modern coming-of-age story that is equal parts intelligent, poignant and witty. It continually surprised me, and always in good ways. I wholeheartedly recommend it and look forward to reading whatever might come next for Quinn.

What a wonderful story of coming of age and learning to be the person you are supposed to be. The author captures your attention and weaves the lives of these three characters together in a delightful way. Would highly recommend it to anyone with an open mind.

I'm not sure why there are so many positive reviews of this book. Let's be real. If you made the mistake of purchasing "The Fall: A Novel by Ryan Quinn," you're better off using it to provide stability for a piece of poorly built furniture than spending any time within its pages. Frankly, referring to this joke of a book as a novel has nothing to do with its contents and everything to do with the self-proclaimed title on its cover. At best, the author makes a sophomoric attempt to put into words a storyline that wouldn't make the cut for even the lowest ranking gay porn films. It should tell you something when the most memorable climatic event "The Fall" has to offer is about players on the football team cutting off their pubes. It is high drama indeed, but you're better off watching a plot unfold on Spectravision. Don't get me wrong. If you're a superficial gay, and like shallow characters, a thin plot and a book that falls apart on multiple occasions, then maybe this will be right up your alley. But, expect that nearly all will agree that most gay B-movies on Netflix have greater depth and entertainment value.

This isn't a gay novel. It doesn't contain characters in drag and glitter, betrothed to drama, gossip, and victimhood. It's the coming out story of normal guys, who are completely comfortable in a world of pig skin and beer pong. It's the "gay world" in which they're out of place. Any questioning youth who identifies more as a jock than a diva should read this novel -- and make this well-told fictional story his own.
