The book was awesome. But I like when the guy gets all women.

Teen drama that even adults can enjoy and understand.

After reading the adventures of David in Stupid Boy, I had to purchase this book.
The first chapter had me wondering where this was going.
Then Rory started to get to me and it was great to see how his life changed and the people he interacted with.
Thank you GYounger for another great read.

Classic G. Younger . . . and that's a very good thing

Reviewed it on March 20, 2023

I believe I've read every G. Younger (GY) book that's publicly available and I have been a fan from the beginning. There is a lot of erotica in his work and he does that well, but, at its heart, almost all his work is some version of a coming-of-age story. I admit to have a real affinity for that genre and GY does it very well, indeed. If GY happens to read this, don't think I missed that "stupid boy" reference you slid in this one.


It seems new

A lot of authors seem to repeat themselves and recopy past successes. "The Valley" is a new take on coming of age and I very much enjoyed it.


Not bad

Reviewed it on March 22, 2023

A good read. Gave it 4 stars because I was able to put it down a few times.


Very good. As usual!

Reviewed it on March 20, 2023

I'm pretty sure this is the author's homage / reimagining of 'Daze in the Valley' The technical quality of this book is up to his usual high standards.

Plot wise I found it harder to suspend any disbelief I had. But still overall I found it very enjoyable.


Feelings and Situations

Reviewed it on March 19, 2023

I liked the flow of the book, delving into the feelings without overwhelming and keeping the characters real.
Nice Touch at the end bringing it all together.
Keep writing I enjoyed it.


A bit of a let down

Reviewed it on March 22, 2023

As I was enjoying the book, it suddenly ended and went into an epilogue...

Still, it was worth it.


Not bad, but not all that good…MC similar to Stupid Boy

Reviewed it on March 19, 2023

The main character reminded me of David from the Stupid Boy series and unfortunately that included many of the things I didn’t like about that character. The story also seemed to kinda jump around a bit and some parts just didn’t make sense.
In my opinion, this book is not worth paying $10 for. It might be worth it for $5.


The valley disappoints

Reviewed it on March 18, 2023

I would like to love this book. The blurb seemed good, I know the writer has written some VERY good books, but I stopped reading after 1/3 of the book. It's a pity that mr. Younger rushed on to 'the good stuff'. It made his protagonist utterly and completely unbelievable. The cover is alluring, and maybe some people find this lack of character development totally unnecessary but still. Maybe it's for you, but not for me. Alas.
