Choke Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Choke

The streets of downtown Montreal can be considered immensely romantic, but they are also considered hearth and refuge to many of the homeless. Choke is a story circling around one weekend in the lives of seven of these young vagrants.
Iven--a callused and toughened veteran, and hopeless wino--is no stranger to how tough the streets can be. Each opportunity that presents itself to him is jumped on with unparalleled skill and grace, and without a second thought of who it may affect because his life depends on it.
All he wanted was a drink. All he wanted was a comfortable evening--it had been so long. He steals a bag of loose change, without the thought of who it may damage, or how. The bag of change just happened to belong to a young female busker, that he charmed into leaving him alone with her earnings. The theft of her rent money, sends her out in the streets--a ruthless existance that she's never been subjected to in the way Iven had. Cold, hungry, and scared, she finally tracks him down to his abandoned building of a home (the cave), and although he prides himself on being emotionally void to a fault, he feels a warmth for the girl he stole from.
The brutal beating of another homeless resident--a friend--have him re-evaluating who he is. Iven is overcome with rage, and attempts to find justice for his friend's death, but pays with his own life instead. Several drops of HIV intected blood seemingly seal his fate, but also grant him another look at his life, and how keeping people at a distance is no way to live it.
