The Lover Although I missed the group presentation I really enjoyed the book I had seen the movie years before so while I read the book I could picture the characters and the scenery One thing I still do not know how I feel about is the idea of love in the story I do not know if I should think this is a love story but that is what makes the book so good It is something that the reader has to figure on his or her own There are so many things that bothered me in this book The girl was only 15 She was completely taken advantage of and granted she seemed more willing than her lover to have this sexual relationship I think she would have accepted anyone and anything that made her forget her family and her hopeless life Her lover was so weak and helpless he could not decide what he wanted in his own life but it did not really matter anyway His father controlled him and he was too weak to stand up to the father So his involvement with this young girl could not have been love because I think before you can love someone you have to be able to love yourself This dysfunctional family was sad It was sickening that the older brother did not care about anyone but I could compare him to the lover The older brother did not care for anyone else and he certainly was not strong because he had to knock down other people and walk all over them to make himself strong He took advantage of his sister too by using her for money and basically pimping her He needed someone weak to control and she was physically weak And the mother could not show love for her youngest children The mother had so many mental problems she should not have had kids if she could not love
