    I finished reading this a few days ago but had to think about what I would write.The story goes into great detail regarding the ballet steps and meanings behind them I often had trouble following it, but it was always interesting I even found myself searching for Nureyev and Barishnikov on YouTube so I could watch some of the dances described in the book.I felt so bad for Hart, he had such an awful childhood with a mother who could not or would not love him He had dealt with it by seeking closeness with anyone who would have sex with him He eventually realized this wasn t good for him, but his mother never believed in him.I had a very hard time dealing with Hart s true love Sebastian I found him a mean spirited spiteful unfeeling person He claimed to love Hart, but often used Hart as either a pawn to ingratiate himself with his family, or to put a wedge between his family and himself I felt horrible when Hart had to deal with Sebastian s fall and that it took him along with it It was such a difficult story to read, but I think I have to give it four stars because it made me really think about what caused such pain for these two men and how differently they dealt with it I always thought Hart was weak but in the end it was Hart who triumphed and was the strength for both of them.There is violence rape and the story is often very sad, but I wished that I could see the dances described They were so powerful and sounded so beautiful I think that is why I gave this a four even though it was a troubling read Because the writer was so clearly able to describe such a difficult subject a dance, and bring it to life on a written page.

    Unfortunately I couldn t finish this, I quit at the halfway point It was a difficult book to read to begin with, because it s full of errors there instead of they re , your instead of you re and similar a character kept changing name every few pages, from Noble to Nobel and back to Noble again and so on untill the page I quit 200 some present tense thrown here and there among the past tense in which the story is told after the introduction Add to that the use of terms that made me feel like it was a bad translation I don t know if it s because the author is American while the story happens in London, so maybe it s a bad attempt at UK English from a US English speaker, but I wondered about a lot of words and sentences Usually I can get past all those things if I like the story, but it wasn t the case for this book so the many errors added to the plot I didn t like and the writing style I couldn t get into, made it impossible for me to go on.The two main characters aren t particularly likable, especially Sebastian who seems selfish and a crazy sexed guy most of the times The drama is too often over the top, to the point it ends up being not believable Most of the secondary characters, especially the villains , are way too exaggerated All those things made this an DNF for me.

    I did not like this book that much It spent way too much time describing dance steps I just kind of got lost Iknow nothing about dance so I did not enjoy the book.
