Zen and Sex by Dermot Davis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
My favourite scene is ... "Frances shows up driving a late model BMW and right away I decide that I don't belong in this relationship, if that's what it is. She greets me with a kiss and an amazingly warm hug and right away I feel like this is where I belong: in her arms."
This contradiction Martin has had me hooked and I fell in love with both characters there and then. Many parts of the book were different from what I expected. I was expecting a clueless, annoying main character. What I actually got was a main character who was able to reflect, make me laugh and grow up in the course of falling in love.
The central question of this book wasn't about age or how relationships work. I think the central question was about how comfortable we are in a relationship. The walls we build and the ones we tear down for the sake of the people we love, just as Martin and Frances did for each other. Highly recommended.
