5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and emotionally intense Feb. 27 2012
Format:Paperback
Danny 1.0, ironically titled Hope House, is the first part of the Danny Quadrilogy, one of the most original, daring and exquisitely plotted stories I've ever read. The author takes the time and space to develop her characters to the point that they feel so real you forget they are fictional. The writing is elegant in a sparse, smooth way. Danny is an addictive and intensely emotional read. But what I loved most was that it is utterly unpredictable throughout.

As others may have already pointed out, this novel dives deep into the dark corners of the human mind and heart and so isn't for the squeamish. This book contains a huge amount of graphic, mostly m/m sex scenes, depicting in detail any kind of sex act you can possibly imagine. There is a lot of rape, physical violence, blood and gore; worse, there's child abuse in all its forms--sexual, physical, verbal, emotional. There are incestuous relationships of the heartbreaking kind. And yet, none of it amounts to gratuitous pornography. Still, if you have trouble with any of the above, this book may not be for you.

The Danny Quadrilogy chronicles the story of the Jackson Moores, who own a farm in rural England. Set in the Eighties, but reaching both backward and forward in time, it depicts ultimate child abuse and family disfunction before the terms became popular. In the relative isolation of their farm life, the Jackson Moore boys have survived their toxic childhood by developing socially unacceptable and often dangerous behaviors.

John, the oldest brother, elicits opposing emotions from the reader. Driven by unvoiced needs and intense jealousy, he is physically imposing, even threatening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating characters June 11 2013
By Diane C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
** spoiler alert **

Wow! What a fascinating book to read. The subject matter of this book (incest) is not for everybody. In spite of the rather dark subject matter, I found it difficult to put the book down. In the just over 1000 page book I found not a single place where the reading dragged along. Just about all of book centered around Danny. Just about every character in the book wanted Danny and in some way loved him. It was really difficult to figure out Danny's motivation. He seemed to be addicted to sex. And there is plenty of it in this book and not just with him, but with just about every other character in the book. But when a character was having sex with someone other than Danny, it was usually because they were using the other person as a substitute for Danny. In the long run, I guess Danny was just looking for someone to love him just for himself rather than his apparently georgeous good looks. In the background of everything though is the malevolent presence of the incest which didn't start with Danny's brothers, but of course with the parents. The readers are given the story of how all of this started in dribs and drabs and I for one, am still not quite sure just how everything transpired.
There was excellent developement of the characters in this novel. They were all quite complex...difficult to wholly love or hate. There was lots of rape and violence in this book; not something I usually enjoy reading about, but the author handled it in such a way that I wasn't repulsed by these actions, but rather was curious about the characters' motivations for treating each other in such a manner.
This is the first book in a 4 book series and even though the ending was satisfactory, I still want to read more and will be reading the rest of the series if the other books are written as well as this first one was.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are looking for an insane, intense read, this is your book!! Sept. 24 2008
By nancee323 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Danny...ahhh Danny. I don't even know how to begin to describe this book! Danny is a very hardcore book. I will tell you honestly, it contains violence, abuse, incest, m/m relationships, hate, darkness, weakness, obsession, and love. This is definitely not my usual type of book!
However, this book came highly recommended from a friend of mine. She said, if I gave this book a chance, I would love it.Honestly, I gave it a shot, and it is by far, the most moving book I have ever read. It's not a fun, pretty, happy go lucky book, but I assure you, if you take the time to pick it up, and read a few chapters, you won't be able to put it down. This book has made me feel more emotions than any other book I have ever read! I am an avid reader, but no other book has ever touched me like this one.
For 9 days, my life literally revolved around this book. (another upside=this book is very long,no cheap novella here)I was always wondering, What would happen to this character?, etc. I was sad when the book ended...I wasn't ready for it to end yet... but, life does go on after Danny...I'm moving on to Volume 2 now. As I said earlier,this book is very hardcore... if you think you can...read it with an open mind, you won't be disappointed!!!
