    One thought on “In His Eyes”

    1. 4.5 Stars.I found the writing style here a lot different to the previous books I've read by this Author but,as usual,his words and characters had me captivated.I've got to admit I didn't know what a 'vignette' was,Definition: a brief evocative description,account or episode.I found reading a the story in this way so refreshing.In His Eyes maps the story of four men,Micah,Skye,Reid,Calvin.They meet when they are young men,just finding their way in life and all the insecurities that go with youth [...]

    2. 5+++Micah - Skye - Reid - Calvin. Four beautiful boys growing out to four even more beautiful men.All the parts gave this whole book so much dynamic. Impressive !Technically I don't know anything about book terms and certainly not in English, but from my lay perspective this in “vignettes" written story is absolutely stunning and I loved it!So lividly! Alternately from many different points of view. Every new headline made my wonder of the meaning and everyone did something to meI smiled, wond [...]

    3. Overall, guys, every book is the same formula. It's a period piece with "coming of age" themes, and one of the secondary characters dies from AIDS. What I found gripping in his other stories is just repetitive at this point. I don't consider any of this spoilery because it's the same damn thing in every one of his books so far.I'm honestly surprised I finished this. Larry Benjamin.I need you to write something other than period pieces.And can you please finish a sex scene?And can you NOT include [...]

    4. Editor's ReviewWhat can I tell you about the new novel from Larry Benjamin? When I think of how readily I can waffle up a storm in any other circumstances, it's hard to believe I can't find words to do justice to In His Eyes (or, indeed, any of Larry's previous works). I could repeat the blurb, but that's pointlessLarry will tell you that In His Eyes is very different from his previous novels, and I agree with him up to a point. Whilst he possesses a unique literary voice that shapes all of his [...]

    5. I was curious to read In his Eyes, particularly as I’d seen some reviews online which were puzzling. Larry calls himself a wordsmith, and I have no reason to doubt his assessment. Yet somehow, I wonder if the word is accurate. When I picture a -smith of anything, I see fire, I see an anvil, hammers and coarse tools. Larry’s tools most certainly include the fire of this passion for writing, but his writing reminds me more of calligraphy than forging a tool. Not sure that makes sense.A puzzleI [...]

    6. If you read one book this year, make it this one.From the very first page, I felt like I'd stepped right into the lives of the characters, and I was oblivious to anything around me. For an afternoon, I was transported to their time and place. This is the fastest I've ever read a book of that length. I kept saying, "Just one more section, and then I'll pause." I never got around to pausing.This is everything I love in a good literary work: solid characters who feel real; relationships but not a r [...]

    7. They ate in silence until Calvin asked, "What about you? What was your coming out like?""For me it was a non-event. I came out to myself when I was fourteen, and nobody else mattered." In His Eyes is the story of 4 very different men coming to terms with their sexuality beginning with their college years in the late 70's. Spanning decades, this coming of age tale is written entirely in vignettes which give the reader snippets of important moments in their intersecting lives.When I first started, [...]
