My Only Escape

There are currently no reviews.

Every day after school, young Zack runs home after his last class, hoping to avoid his abusive father's rage and avoid anymore physical and emotional bruises at home. It isn't until he meets a beautiful stranger at school that he begins to wonder whether or not he's worth anything at all. Can he live in one world and fantasize about the other? Or will he have to choose?

I am new to this site and have read the GFD and a few other stories, but the thing about this story that stands out to me is this:

That is one of, if not the most, best gay story ever that I have read.

Mr Comsie, i have to say that this story engaged me so much, hell I was finding it hard to get to sleep at night because I was thinking about what was going to happen next!

The thing with this story is that it has so much emotion in it, it frustates you but excites you at the same time! It is brilliant!

The one problem with it is that I wanted more. I didnt want it to end at chapter 17. I liked how Brody and Zac would be boyfriends forever but i kinda wanted to know or find out a few things. What would happen if Zac told his mum what his father was doing to him, what if he told Brody? I was hoping that the father would get busted or something that would keep the story alive. Maybe the Holly girl (is it holly?) would ask out Brody if it happened. What would he say? That's the kind of I wanted to find out.

I know you wrote this what, 3 years ago? but even so, i still love it! The age of the two boys was more "appealing" to me aswell, i would most likely read stories of yours that included people in the ages of 14 and 15. Just my opinion anyway.

Even if you dont plan on writing more of this story, please keep the reviews of mine and others in mind.

Comicality - I give you a big well done! :P:thumbup:

This story is heartbreaking, but compelling reading. Rarely have I read a story so convincingly told from the eyes of the abused. It is impossible not to feel frustrated by Zak's inability to accept help, but this behaviour is entirely consistent with others in the same situation. Frighteningly realistic, it makes me want to reach out and pull Zak to safety.

It is great story - the plot is outstanding and the characters are really good. Being a steak and potatoes man my only grip is that sometimes the descriptive is a  little excessive and flowery seemly never ending at times. I found myself skipping over it as I became used to the author's style. That said other passages had me riveted to the action - the love scenes were spectacular and the sensitivity of the author jumped off of the page. It seems as if young Zack is in the throes of and emotional breakdown to compound the physical abuse of his father. I was literally 100% depressed to find at the end of chapter 32 (read in 2 days time) that Zack still didn't have the courage  to get the help he needed. PLEASE HURRY AND FINISH IT.

If only Brody's or Adam's mom were a school psychologist and took an extra look at Zack and saw the turmoil, the pressure  going on in his head. If only they could reach out and give him the help he so sorely needs; get Zack and his mom out of that apartment while Zack's father is confronted. Hey looks like Zack's dad doesn't work so he should be removed. Then Zack and Brody can go on being boyfriends and after college marry and with a surrogate have a child of their own. Zack demanding it be from Brody's seed with his beautiful loving sensitive way.  I need an ending. It is such a marvelous story; it develops the reader so thoroughly in the pure emotion of Zack, Brody and their friends. But it needs it's ending and please a happy ending. Before everyone is crying at Zack's funeral and Brody reads Zack's notebook to all assembled and Zack's father is found out to be the miserable excuse for a human being that he is. Sadly, that would be the case in real life but this is fiction, make it end happy Comicality. Please!!

I'm afraid it'll end with the Zack getting seriously hurt and ending up in an ER. Hope he lives and isn't permanently disabled. Everyone will say why didn't anyone read the signs.

Sorry. I've seen this story played out in live action.

It is sad - that was my second ending - Zack getting hurt or actually dying - more times than not a teen in that situation - in a nervous breakdown and gay - always hiding the real person - they do it... it is sad - but the fear of being out - is bigger than the survival instinct - probably a lot less today with the more tolerant attitude  - but back in the 50's it was the norm.

I do a little bit of writing myself but I tend to complete the story. The end is the hardest part you've gotten bored with the characters but you have to soldier on so to speak. the readers deserve an ending. Sorry to say this Comicality, but I don't want to read any more of your stuff becase there isn't an end. Hey you are a gifted writer your plots and character development are great. There are times when you can't stop reading it. But for me I don't want to go through that reading to have it not come to a conclusion.
