LOVED, LOVED, this story. Have listened to it twice in three days. This is by far the best work offered through Audible by Cardeno C. The writing was fantastic and the narration is some of the best that I have heard. Paul Morey was phenominal. A gambit of emotions and the smile on my face actually hurt. A continuation--of sorts--from Home Again (another good book) in that the character of Ben Foreman continued on his path of growth, discovery, and acceptance. Wanted the story to continue on and on...especially with the great characters. As earlier stated, loved this story and I think I might recommend it...maybe :-)
An interesting tale of one's inability to see what is in front of you. Jake and Nate are virtually bonded together since birth, yet still fail to realize some truths about one another. I am a fan of Sean Crisden and I think he did a great job, as usual. The Cardeno's story was good but a bit predictable...long in some parts and shorter in others. I felt as if there was a larger story to tell, specifically involving Jake, Jake's parents, and Nate but what do you do. All in all, a good, sappy romance, which I love. Worth the listen.
This is a great love story and the reason I say surprisingly is because of the time frame in which the book was written. Patricia Nell Warren's tale of Harlan and Billy is sweet and tantalizing and most certainly relatable. I will admit that some of the terminology used, such as 'The Gay' made me laugh a bit, but keeping in mind that this book was originally written in 1974, it is fairly accurate to the times, although I do not believe I have ever called myself 'A Gay'. :-) The narration by Christian Rummel is fantastic and certainly adds to the intensity of the story. The book allows the reader to embrace the best, suffer in the tragedy, and long for a better tomorrow. A must read!
Great set of stories and the perfect narrator. Josh is a wonderful writer, he is on my immediate purchase list of authors, and now that he has the rights to most of his stories he is making sure that his characters come to life with the right voice(s) Alexander J. Masters is amazing. Don't waste your money on "I Spy something Bloody" buy the complete set with "In From the Cold"
