Goodreads:  What happens when everything you thought was true changes all at once? What happens when each relationship that means anything to you suddenly becomes far more real than you ever thought it would be? What happens when every moment becomes invaluable as all of them pass far too quickly?

Flash and Dazzle is the story of two friends who have known the best of times who develop a true taste for life during the worst of times. It is the story of the friends and lovers who enter their orbit, some for a long time and some only for a moment. It is the story of legacies, burdens, and the kinds of secrets that are only revealed when there’s nothing left to tell.

It is a funny, moving, deeply honest novel that will inspire you to call everyone you care about and thank everyone you know for what they’ve given you.

Ope’s Opinion:  I struggled to get into this book.  About half way through I got hooked.  The ending was awesome! I liked that you sort of know the ending from the start.  I think I would have given it four chairs had it grabbed me from the beginning.

It was great to read about men’s friendships that are so different, yet so similar to female relationships.  The characters were well developed and I did care about them.

Overall, I did enjoy this book.

Rating – Three Chairs – I like the book enough to suggest it to a friend or two.
