    What disappointed you about The Darkling Thrush?

    I tried to read the book once and didn't find it very engaging, so I thought I'd manage better with it being reading to me. No such luck. I couldn't get over the first five minutes of the recording. I wish I listened to sample before buying.

    Closeted teenager Jeremy is sent to live with wealthy relatives after his mother enters rehab. Struggling to fit into the posh world of Ballena Beach, Jeremy joins the high school swim team, dates a popular girl, and begins to think he may have landed in paradise - until his great aunt Katharine starts to dictate his every move…and a late-night phone call insinuates that his father’s accidental death was not so accidental after all. As Jeremy grows accustomed to the veneer of a fabulous life, so grows his need for answers - as well as the danger of immeasurable harm.

    Riva says: "A surprising treat!"
    "Badly written, banal and boring. Didn't finish."

    Hope brightens a bleak Edinburgh December. A man gets a second chance with his high school crush. A decade-long game of cat and mouse comes to a passionate conclusion. And Santa Claus drives a red muscle car. Heat up your holidays with this collection of four festive tales from some of the top talent in the male/male genre.

    Donald says: "A Great Holiday Treat..."
    "2 of 4"
    Overall

    "Mistletoe at Midnight" was just barely Ok, it sort of lacked point. --

    "Nine Lights over Edinburgh". Plain bad. Annoying narration matched equally annoying story. Unhuman amounts of schmaltz. Skipped some parts toward the end. --

    "I Heard Him Exclaim". Real good and cute one. Great narration. --

    "Icecapade". Best among the stories even though Robert sounded a bit off inho. --

    All in all, a good buy since stories #2 and 3 make up for #1 and 2
