Rezension zu "Dirty Mind" von Roe Horvat

Too negative and unhappy for a romance
Sakukovor 10 Monaten

33 year old Alex is a writing teacher and secretly a porn writer. He's friends with the 21 year old student Chris, who moves to Freiburg to study medicine. He falls in love with the young man, but midlife crisis strikes and all Alex can think about is his receding hair, his stupid writing and how he can't imagine to spoil the innocent Chris.

This book annoyed me to no end. I expected something kinda funny, tongue in cheek but it was all just maudlin, unhappy stuff. Even the happy part where written more melancholic, thoughtful instead of exuberant.

I just wanted to slap Alex half the time and ignore him the other half. He's 33,and he acts like a 50 year old slobbering after a 17 year old. I'm older than him, and I hung out with students, it's not a big deal. But he just couldn't stop making it one, it was exasperating. And since it's all Alex's perspective we get a lot of flowery descriptions of his longing, loneliness, negativity and weird surrealistic dream sequences.
But Chris hardly fared better, in my opinion. He's also pretty down most of the time, or maybe that's just the Alex googles speaking. And he also doesn't manage to open his mouth and have a decent talk about anything. I found both of them frustrating, especially together.

I liked the secondary cast more actually. Dieter was fun and even depressed Mattias was more sensible than the MCs.

Also, I'm German, and I was annoyed that they managed to misspell a few of the German words. It's not that hard to check, it wasn't even full sentences.
