We’ve all been around a couple who can engulf the attention of an entire room merely by occupying it. Harry and Madeleine Winslow are that set; the natural ease between them is palpable and their chemistry is almost tangible. He is a recent National Book Award winner with a promising career ahead of him, and she is blessed with family money, but radiates beauty, elegance, and humility. Whether they are abroad in Italy after he receives the Rome Prize, in their ambrosial East Hampton home, or in gritty Manhattan, they are always surrounded by close friends and those who wish to penetrate their inner circle. During a summer spent at the beach, they meet 26 year-old Claire and, as the summer blazes on, she is slowly inducted into their world. Claire can’t help but fall in love with Harry and Maddy and at the end of the summer, it is no longer enough to just be one of their hangers-on. Told through the omniscient eyes of Maddy’s childhood friend Walter, Indiscretion is a juicy, page turning novel with writing that is sophisticated and lyrical. Deeply textured, full of light and darkness, and overwhelmingly sensual, this book will be the sexiest, most intimate story you read all year.
Why I am giving this book by author Charles Dubow is that it was slow for me in the beginning and then very very fast pace the rest of the book. In the beginning of the first couple of chapters I was not to sure if I was going to get into it then all of a sudden there were so many things happening and the story was being told thru some one else's eyes, just kinda caught me off guard.
But once I really started getting the plot and the storyline I could then keep up and enjoyed it. Author Charles Dubow has a unique style of writing to me. I read several genres but this one was different in ways that I can only say that "You Need To Read This One For Yourself To Decide!"
I will also say that some of the sensual juicy page turns can be, as the synopsis says a little overwhelming. I am not into reading very intimate story lines. But I will say the book was very well told by Maddy's childhood friend, Walter.
So there you go, you need to pick up this one and let me know what you think.
And so due to the above I am giving this book as of now a Breath of Life Rating of:
Four Clock Rating!!!Disclosure: I did receive this book in exchange for my review. But the opinions are mine, your opinion may differ, and that is fine with me.
