5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful 28. Januar 2012
Von C.St.
Format:Taschenbuch
The story is supposed to be a coming-of-age story. To be honest, I don't buy it. A 17 year old just can't be that self-reflected. BUT...I read the book in two sittings just interrupted by sleeping. It appeals to every rather young person, everyone who sees themselves as rather set apart from anyone else. The book won't give you a solution but it doesn't has to. Honestly, I am just overwelmed by the sheer truth and depth of this book right now. If you want a poetic, gripping, smart, cynic, funny and heart warming coming-of-age story, this is a great read for you!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ein Genuß! 2. Februar 2008
Format:Taschenbuch
Wirklich ein sehr gutes Buch, das durch seine gut gezeichneten Charaktere überzeugt. Die Handlung ist spannend und durchdacht erzählt und nur an ganz wenigen Stellen etwas unglaubwürdig. Alles in allem, sehr empfehlenswert.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Don't leave this book behind! 10. September 2003
Von Christian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Bart Yates writes a poignant and somewhat believable account of the Noah York, a seventeen-year-old high school student who falls in love with his neighbor, J.D. Noah's mother is a bucketful of dysfunction, but she must be as an accomplished poet. While she's at times permissive and at others psychotic, Noah must navigate the waters of his adolescence without losing his own sanity, or losing his life. Though Yates writes with style and insight, there are a few places where the boundaries of believability are stretched thin...yet, he manages to avoid stepping completely past those points and does so without coming across as schmaltzy or trite. It's been a long while since I've read a novel with a gay central character that hasn't covered the same ground that everyone else has. "Leave Myself Behind" is that break-through novel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is Quite a Story & Different! 1. April 2003
Von Joseph J. Hanssen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
We have seen so many coming-out novels published in the past few years that one could say it's starting to be overdone, but this new novel about 17 year old Noah, is very effective and shows great originality. There are so many issues going on in the lives of these well-developed characters, that it takes a while to grasp it all, but you will, and it's quite a story from the beginning to end.

Noah, a closeted gay teenager, is dealing with his father's death, his adjustment to living in rural New Hampshire after moving from urban Chicago, and his mother's growing madness as she discovers a terrible dark secret in the new house as she finds mason jar after mason jar between the walls filled with letters, poems, and other strange things while renovating the house. On top of all this, Noah's blossoming love for his new neighbor, J.D., a handsome 16 year-old, creates more issues as well. J.D. is living a horrific home life, with an alcoholic father and a bigoted mother. Yes, there's much, much more to this story. You'll have to discover the rest for yourself. Yates has the creative touch to explore all these issues, and many more not mentioned, and still bring it all together in the end.

If you want an honest, intelligent, well-crafted story to read, this is the book for you. Yates is a fine writer, who has a great future ahead of him. This is a book to really get absorbed in, and forget the world around you for a while. Spend some time with these dysfunctional families, and your own life will take on a whole new light. Highly recommended!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent 30. März 2006
Von A. Laird - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I don't know what it is about the way Yates writes - but I become obsessed with the characters and story and just hate putting the book down. I recently read Brothers Bishop and felt the same. Right now I feel sad because I finished the book and fear I will not find anything as engrossing any time soon. This is not a typical coming of age novel - the characters are well developed and the story is one that any reader would enjoy! Keep on writing Mr. Yates!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Intense Page Turner 7. Februar 2006
Von Jamilla L. Geter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Whoever compared this book to Catcher in the Rye was right on the money. Bart Yate's Noah York, is witty, insightful, opinionated and wonderfully sarcastic. His narrative is never dull and the story unfolds with ease.

I liked Noah immediately, and loved J.D just as much when he came on the scene. Both boys will pull at your heart strings with this riveting tale of coming of age in a world that won't accept you for who you are. Noah's grief over his father was poignant, it showed how hard it really is to lose someone you love and to have your life so drastically changed at the drop of the hat. I reccommend this book to anyone who likes a good story. Noah is definitely right up there with Holden Caufiield as a literary character not to be forgotten

5.0 von 5 Sternen Take This Journey 5. Januar 2004
Von "littleghost" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is an incredibly engaging novel. Some may find the subject matter difficult; I found it refreshingly honest. Much like Mark Kendrick's "Desert Sons," "Leave Myself Behind" is direct and realistic in exploring the highs and lows of young gay men coming to terms with their emotions and their sexuality while they're in the midst of surviving abuse within their dysfunctional families. Unlike "Running With Scissors," which seeks to shock and sarcastically amuse in its account of adolescent turmoil, "Leave Myself Behind" never loses focus on finding ways to survive, heal, and even flourish in spite of the odds (not that there isn't any sarcasm coming from Noah, the narrator -- but he's not consumed by irony). I highly recommend this book to lovers of gay literature, mystery (yes, there's a mystery happening in here, too), and all who know what it's like to find yourself as a teenager who has to become their own parent when the biological parents don't do the job.
