    LITTLE BLUE WHISTLE is an interesting read concerning a 63 year old father coming to terms with the fact that his son is gay The only problem I had with this novel was all of the side stories which felt like a diversion to me.

    I would have to say that this book is like nothing I have ever read before In saying this I do have to admit that I have never read any books about a father trying to develop an understanding of his son s announcement of being gay or even a book about anyone telling the world that they are gay The perspective of Robert the father is so well written that I found my emotions bouncing from being proud of his deep love for his son, to wanting to put the book down because I was so angry at what h I would have to say that this book is like nothing I have ever read before In saying this I do have to admit that I have never read any books about a father trying to develop an understanding of his son s announcement of being gay or even a book about anyone telling the world that they are gay The perspective of Robert the father is so well written that I found my emotions bouncing from being proud of his deep love for his son, to wanting to put the book down because I was so angry at what he was thinking The honest thoughts and beliefs of a man that is in his sixties and grew up before there was a Will and Grace on primetime TV can be shocking But to be honest myself, his v...

    This book reminded me of the very first of Lages s books that I read, The Church of the Divine Duck I can t really explain why it did, as they re very different books, just that it did, and I enjoyed it quite a lot, as usual.It was, in a way, simpler than some of Lages s other books not to say that the journey to accepting that your child is gay when you ve spent your whole life thinking that homosexuality is wrong, just that there were no detailed or complicated explanations required to help This book reminded me of the very first of Lages s books that I read, The Church of the Divine Duck I can t really explain why it did, as they re very different books, just that it did, and I enjoyed it quite a lot, as usual.It was, in a way, simpler than some of Lages s other books not to say that the journey to accepting that your child is gay when you ve spent your whole life thinking that homosexuality is wrong, just that there were no detailed or complicated explanations required to help the reader understand the points Lages was trying to make about a certain topic Instead, there were dreams and memories from Robert, to help you understand the way that he was taught to view homosexuality, and why he couldn t immediately accept that his son was gay As someone who has grown up where homosexuality is not necessarily 100% accepted, but is at least pretty common, it was interesting to see some stories about why older fo...
