Top Mark by Graeme Aitken

Without doubt Top Mark is a story with a twist, so unexpected that it turned almost in a thriller from the sweet romance the author was lulling us at first.

The story of stylish Mark who meets new-hippy Mark, 6 years of difference and a whole world of experience between them, they become the Marks, Top Mark and Marx; but Marx is like a bloodsucker, eating Top Mark’s life. Does he realize it? I don’t think so, the old Marx seems really smitten by Top Mark, I liked him. Not so much now, reliving their story from Top Mark’s perspective, reading how he is basically mistreating a man in love, not giving him neither the decency of a farewell.

This is not a happily ever after romance, but it’s for sure good literature.
