As part of my summer reading experience, I have decided to branch out of my normal routine of reading only crime books and thriller/horror genres. While this was not as intense and thrilling as those subjects might be, I was definitely pleased with the artistic story-telling of Jardine Libaire's White Fur.
This is an exciting story, in a different way. Not for younger readers. Mature audiences only.
With a story that will bring to mind the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, this book tells of star-crossed lovers, Elise Perez and Jamey Hyde. It is a story that resonates with most people because of the simplicity and realistic-ness of their situation. Though so close in distance, their lives could not be further from each other's.
This novel, follows them from their instant attraction, through their relationship, as sexuality is high and emotions run deep. No matter, there is always something at bay, trying to force them apart and keep them from each other.
Can they beat it and make it through it all, or will they let their past and everything that happens, separate them? You will have to read to find out.
Jardine Libraire should be credited for her writing as she has written this novel very well. The characters are realistic and easy to relate too. The setting, being 1980's Manhattan, is a vivid locale and seems true to it's time. She created an environment that feels real. This is definitely a book you can loose yourself in. You will be reading non-stop, hoping these two can rise above and have the fairy tale ending we all wish for.
