The premise behind the story of Chip and Foster is a bit contrived to say the least but the writing style of Eric Arvin envelopes you in such a manner that you forget the implausibility of the premise. Of course, this is from my perspective for I have never met a 40 plus year old man, a self-proclaimed ladies man who at the sight of the new man on campus becomes infatuated, lustful, and lovelorn in a short period. I am not meaning to dissuade anyone from this book, for the writing is engaging and Charlie David’s (a big fan of his anyways) narration brings the story to life. Charlie’s narrative abilities injects realism to the characters and carries the reader or listener to a far away campus where an adventure begins. Additionally, the secondary characters of Brad and Jason (I think that’s their names) and their budding relationship and persistent tomfoolery made me laugh out loud. All in all, Eric Arvin’s writing style and Charlie David’s narrative make this a must read or listen.
Crow and Fox provide an excellent love story in which one can get lost in. The story of Nick and Hollie are what one dreams real life could be like. 'You keep the ring and I'll keep you'...what a great line. Max Tatch, the narrator, adds realism and emotion to the characters and his soothing voice allows you to get lost in the imagination of the story. Can't say enough about this book...great all around!!!
This was my first audio book and I have to admit I was initially skeptical on whether I would enjoy the experience. The beginning was a bit hard to get into but once the story unfolded, I could not take the ear-bobs out! The characters of Tucker Lance and Elliot Mills were relatable and I became engrossed with their story. This was a great first experience. The story was engaging and the narrator did a good job in expressing emotion through his voice. And being a hopeless romantic, the book ended just as I thought it should with a surprise twist. Excellent First Experience and am already enjoying the next book...
Yes, just like the characters in the story, the book title is not perfect, it's dorky. Yes, the author changes point of view here and there (and out of blue), but darn it, I really liked the characters and even though there really is nothing very original about the plot and course of the story, I really loved the characters including a neurotic protagonist with his quiet-type lover to be with their friends.The sexual scenes, again, fairly traditional were still very hot and very well done. Narrator Jason Lovett indeed became Cole, bravo!
