    PaperbackÅ Halfway Home eBook ñ halfway epub, home book, Halfway Home PDFEPUBI remembered enjoying this book when it was published in 1991 and now 18 years later I enjoyed it again AIDS affected author Monette's life brutally annihilating his friends and lovers and eventually himself he died in 1995 That first hand sense of being on the front lines of the crisis rings through uite clearly It's not a perfect novel by any means and there is one plot line in particular that winds up feeling extraordinarily contrived to me but the characterization of protagonist Tom Shaheen rings true to me and brought tears to my eyes again and again Halfway Home is the story of Shaheen reconciling with a brutal familial past and preparing to lose his battle with AIDS Heavy stuff to be sure but Shaheen is an engaging narrator wryly aware of his own rage and

    PaperbackÅ Halfway Home eBook ñ halfway epub, home book, Halfway Home PDFEPUBI love the way Paul Monette writes wroteand am so happy to learn I haven't read everything in his body of work I happened to run across this copy of Halfway Home in a small book art shop in Hood River Oregon last week and am so glad I did This novel is extremely well put together telling the story of a brother Tom a very funny guy coping with AIDS while also wrestling with childhood memories of family violence at the hands of his father and older brother Because the story is in Monette's hands nothing ever gets too horrible though the plot twists are very realistic and fascinating Also he really gets people and how they interact But if you read it for no other reason read it for Tom's wicked sense of humor I laughed out loud many times
