Reviews - What do customers think about Attraction?

Thoughtful and thought-provoking  May 22, 2008
From the moment I read the thoughts of the character Anne-Marie, I was stunned...and double checked the title page...did a man really write this? How does he know how women think when some of us can barely speak our own thoughts?

Impressive not only in its force of mystery and depth of passion, this book takes a very thoughful look at the human desire for love and listens in on the innermost thoughts of men and women alike.

I found it to be a thoroughly enjoyable read and can't wait to see what Mr. Manlow writes next.
(3.5) Love and the theory of relativity  Sep 22, 2004
Love. Passion. Jealousy. Confusion. Doubt. Mystery. The novels opens with an air of loss and personal anguish, as Jack Prentis Stone relates, bit by bit, the story of his life since meeting his wife, Anne-Marie. A talented artist, Anne-Marie moved to England with her mother, who abruptly left a philandering husband in France. As a consequence of their sudden departure, Anne-Marie struggles through a tortured, unresolved relationship with her father.

From the start, there is an acute awareness of detail, short flashes of recognition, moments when early passion is cemented in the consciousness and attraction slides flawlessly into love. In the opening dialog, as Jack speaks of their early days of romantic bliss, there is an underlying element of confusion and a palpable sense of something gone terribly wrong.
The story lurches back and forth in time, in the same way that Jack's mind deals with an ominous escalation of events that have spun out of control. At the core is his love for Anne-Marie, but after three years of marriage, they have drifted apart, victim to an insidious decay that allows busy people to ignore the signs of trouble.

Because Jack is now in France, awaiting the arrival of an English inspector, we know that this marriage has suffered more than ordinary difficulties. Jack reveals his tangled memories in a mix of past and present, bright new love and the potent seed of jealousy that leads to tragedy. Perhaps it is the attraction of opposites, this marriage of Jack and Anne-Marie. As a student of science, Jack considers everything through a filter of scientific theory, the impermanence of matter in a constantly changing universe. Having difficulty separating reality from fantasy, he is beleaguered by time's imperfections, memory's own deception in service of self-protection.

While Jack's actions are logical, Anne-Marie is less predictable, her emotional tensions denied through the years of her marriage, but certainly affecting her behavior and choices. A gradual erosion of communication creates opportunity and each party is dangerously susceptible to serious mistakes, misinterpretations of each other's motives.

Jack orbits around his wife, the emotional center of the universe of a man raised by women, desperate to find his way back to their primary connection, recalling the simplicity and perfection of early love, their travels in the French countryside and joyful pairing as man and wife. At no time do we doubt the love of this couple, trusting Jack to come to the end of this psychological maze, driven deeper toward an awareness of what he holds most precious.

In this compelling tale, perched on the dangerous precipice of love gone terribly wrong, a few moments of bad judgment throw all into chaos. Tension drives the story as the characters are propelled to their inevitable conclusion. Passion. Love. Betrayal. Murder. Luan Gaines/2004.
