    One thought on “Tom & Christopher And Their Kind”

    1. The first book in the series had a lot going on and, while I enjoyed the writing, I felt that the story could've been streamlined. This second book flows nicely and the writing is still top-notch. This, combined with it being a European period piece, makes it classic gay literature as its title suggests. Nice characters, nice locations, a little bit of sex, a little bit of conflict, makes this a very enjoyable read that will leave you satisfied.

    2. What a wonderful sequel to Dog in the Chapel. Beautifully told story and continuation of the "Admiral Digby Pub" gang.Looking forward to the next book in the series August 2016.

    3. This second book in the Tom and Christopher series wasn't as entertaining for me as The Dog in the Chapel, mainly because Tom and Christopher didn't seem to have much to do here. They moved around, slept around, went back to school, lived their lives, etc but there wasn't any huge turmoil here. I enjoy McDonald's writing but, in this book, I felt the narrator was too intrusive and a little annoying. Far too often, the narrator would pop up with some tidbit of supposedly helpful information like [...]

    4. Great follow up book to "The Dog in the Chapel". Again it resonated with a feeling of the time periods in which this book was set and the popular attitudes on both sides of the Channel to homosexuality. Initially I thought that it seemed a little too easy for Tom and Christopher's life in Boulogne but later in the book where it was pointed out that Sabine thought of the two protagonists as ersatz sons I could see how things would have been easier for them. Initially with their Catholic upbringin [...]

    5. It was nice to catch up with Tom and Christopher after their escape from the oppressive anti-homosexual laws in England at the time. They continue their adventures in France, meeting old friends and making new. This story flows very well and with first rate writing.
