One thought on “A Snowman Made of Sand

  1. Serena Yates

    The definition of perfect is the central focus of this story, and while you might think it s a pretty clear concept, the way both main characters have a very different way of looking at what it means shows that it is far from clear cut Australian Ethan thinks he has fond the perfect man in Tristan, a British artist with unusual friends and the picture perfect family But, as it turns out when Tristan is about to meet Ethan s less than perfect Australian family, Tristan has some very different ide [...]

    Tristan is perfect Christmas last year with Tristan s family in London was perfect Christmas with Ethan s family in Australia, not so much At least that s how Ethan sees it.This story is a tale of once bitten, twice shy for Ethan The one and only time he d brought a boyfriend to Christmas at the beach with the Harveys, said boyfriend ran from the house crying, never to be heard from again Eek, I know, right Anyway, Tristan is insistent about meeting Ethan s family, much to Ethan s horror Even Et [...]

    3.5 STARSI guess I m stereotyping here but I think it s pretty fair to say that Australians can be a little hard to get use to We tend to say inappropriate things and do inappropriate things and assume that the rest of the world finds us as hilarious as we do I m glad the inappropriateness wasn t edited out of this story because when characters say things like Bugger me dead, did he really just say he was a poofter it just makes me chuckle and think, yep, this author is definitely Australian.My [...]

    Darling short story about the meaning of perfection between two people As much as I enjoyed this story, I really would have loved to see Ethan s crazy family antics than just read a recap of them There was one incident shown and I loved it It rather sounded like something that would happen at my own Christmas gathering I laughed throughout the story because I know families like this I m part of one, and while you can chose who you fall in love with, you are stuck with family no matter what.Despi [...]

    This is an engaging story of two guys who move to Australia from England back to the home of Ethan, one of our MCs Tristan, his English boyfriend and artist really wants to meet Ethan s family Fair is fair last year they had spent Christmas with Tristan s family in England Ethan, however, is embarrassed of his family and would happiest if Tristan NEVER meets them That does not fly, so Ethan s sister attempts to help the situation with the family In a way this story reminded me if the BritCom Kee [...]

    I think I particularly appreciated this because I have one of those families, where they are always embarrassing each other and saying stupid things but you know they all love each other I could sympathize with wanting to keep Tristan Trissie away but in the end, Tristan had the right attitude.

  9. C.M. Corett

    This is a really funny Aussie Christmas story, but you don t need to be Australian to appreciate this wacky crazy family I think we all have at least one or two family members that embarrass the heck out of us This story is well written and very entertaining.

  10. Katy Beth Mckee

    Really life and family can be the one thing to make you crazy and the Harvey s have all the elements But instead of killing a relationship it lets both men truly express their love to each other.

  11. Kendra T

    Ethan and Tristan are an established couple who moved to Australia where Ethan is from from England where Tristan is from and Ethan was doing work Ethan is embarrassed about his family, and has tried to keep Tristan away from them It doesn t go well, because it s a lot of sneaking and avoiding It was annoying to me that they have been together for so long and has avoided this subject for so long Also, view spoiler it was annoying that it appeared that Tristan moved across the country to live wit [...]

    All that build up and we didn t even get to see the fireworks This was ok, I guess Parts of it were certainly funny, but a lot of it was simply told to us, not shown, so I couldn t help but be a little bored I wanted to see all the crazy family stuff, instead the story skipped right over it, and let it be told to us later Wasn t nearly as fun as it would have been having actually seen it So it was basically all build up but no bang Barely even a fizzle.2.5 stars

    For a short story, this sure was slow to start It was all about Ethan s angst about letting his boyfriend meet his brash, politically incorrect family It was okay, but really of a meh for me.
