A review by minnaobrien
The Love Song of Johnny Valentine by Teddy Wayne


This book is very well written, and is an emersive and compelling character study. However, the ending is deeply underwhelming. The themes and perspectives developed so well in the body of the novel are underserved in what was already going to be a weak ending due to the slice-of-life, plot-less structure. It is really only the last two pages that are disappointing, but it leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
