dinner, and from there Davidís life is totally changed.
Erik comes with some baggageóa ten-year old son, an ex-wife,
and a distinct lack of experience with being gayóbut Davidís
certain Erik will be worth it. Can David and Erik stay
together when Erikís baggage suddenly gets a lot heavier?
I wanted to
love On the Way to the Wedding, but I just
couldnít get into it. The storyline was fast-paced and full
of hot sex. Davidís a little neurotic, but not so much as
to be annoying. All in all, it seemed like On the Way
to the Wedding had a great setup. Unfortunately,
Davidís first-person narration has a stilted quality to it
that I couldnít quite put my finger on, but it distanced me
from the story. Things between Erik and David happened a
bit too quickly, leaving me confused or disbelieving
at times. The main conflict is resolved too easily, and
there are a few group scenes that left me baffled. While I
enjoyed Little Rik, Erikís precocious and opinionated son,
and the ending had a bit of a twist I didnít see coming, on
the whole I canít recommend On the Way to the Wedding.
