mobi Junction X

Junction XIng to himself all of his life And first love when it does come hits him and hits him hard Who is the object of his passion? The teenaged son of the new neighbours Edward's world is about to go to hell Both a haunting tale of sexual obsession and a stunning portrait of an ordinary Maybe not uite 4 full stars for reasons I'll explain but I'm rounding up because it had some serious strengths The narrative was brutal and beautiful but without being purple prosey When I finished it a couple of days ago I was torn on my final feelings about it beyond damn that writing tho But now I've spent some time processing and discussing it so I'll try for an actual review Elation is a bubble that lasts for tiny tiny moments but leaves something of its memory in scents and sounds so that later when you need that boost you can close your eyes and remember happiness Junction X's story arc was dark and taboo and the plot execution was on point What fell short for me was the character development It's hard to go into this without spoilers but there was a particular twist that made sense for the story but it felt hard to buy because of the lack of characterization leading up to itJunction X was one of those that easily had 5 star possibilities which makes the shortcomings chafe a bit It had the potential to destroy me and I hold it against it that it didn't Having said that it was definitely worth the read and I liked it a lot even loved it at times Erastes' writing kept me engaged with every line and I will no doubt be exploring others in her catalogue
