    22. Come back Love Go Back to the Library.At first I thought hmm this is really simple sounding Maybe this is a new, clever way to write Then I thought, actually, no, this is appallingly bad Let me check the GR rating maybe I picked this one up by accident 3.7 I must keep on Then I realized it was only getting worse, remembered that these ratings are sometimes self selecting, and I have only one life to live.

    23. Loved it Couldn t put it down Gordon and Glenna are characters I cared about I wanted to know their story These two characters were so well developed particularly Gordon First love through a man s point of view was very well done and revealing At times you could feel Gordon burning over on Mars completely flummoxed by his Venus The other characters Robin and Biff as well as the families were great foils for the main characters but interesting on their own.
