I love gay love stories. This one is one of the best. It is also the second I have purchased from this author. I have listened to it over 10 times already. As there are not a huge selection of gay themed romance, it is well worth your purchase. The story progresses easily and there aren't any stilted subplots. The reader's voice is very nice and easy to understand. Some of the characters have funny or off sounding voices, but it's OK as they are minor characters and it's not distracting. This is not fine literature, it IS a nice story that has hot love scenes and moves along. It has quickly become one of my favorites.
The flow of the story was great and the narration was very good.
I would compare this favorably with the twilight series. The story has that sort of star crossed lovers feel, it just moves along faster.
The characters were easily differentiated and her voice was pleasant to listen to.
The love story was very moving. The slow blooming of Patrick's inquisitive and wonderful nature coaxed by a nurturing, patient Whiskey was emotionally fullfilling.
I have already listened to it 3 times. It is a nice story that moves at a quick pace. Even though the subject matter is harsh the way the central character deals with his rape is refreshing. This is not a poor, pitiful me type of guy. There is no whining, but he is emotional. It is just a good emotional ride.
Colin is my favorite character. He is very realistic about life. Most people have a hard time accepting their reality and he does.
A better classification would have prevented me from buying this audiobook. It is not a gay romance. At least in the first hour (four chapters) there is no mention of anyone being gay. I can see the setup coming, but there are several stories going on here and the gay part is not central so far. This book is 8 and a half hours long, I gave it an hour and all I heard were back stories. It might be a good listen if you like very verbose story telling, but I found it tedious.
I am sure it is a good book for some, but I expected more of a gay theme from a book listed in the gay and lesbian section.
The great writing and wonderful narration.
The way the story left some tangents open so the author can give us more stories. I want to read about the brother and the best friend.
Yes, if they can get it on sale. It is an entertaining listen and Mary Calmes is a very good author.
I often enjoy Ms. Calmes character develop and the formula she follows when writing. It is a little predictable, but I enjoy that. She leads you through a range of emotions and it is a fun ride.
This book is not something I can recommend. It was tedious and did not get any better from the start. I only listened to the first few chapters and they were painful. It is a period piece which is part of what I found difficult to listen to.
Not the genre, but definitely the author.
The narrator was ok. If the story had been better I would have had no problem with the narration. The story is so bad it colors everything else.
The print version was required for a class and the audio version made the assignment much more enjoyable.
I love this narrator. His voice is wonderful.
This entire series is a roller coaster of emotion that gets better with each new book.
The narrator was very good. From the volume of his voice to the enunciation of the dialog he was wonderful.
The theme of perseverance was very nice.
The moment the little girl died was heartbreaking.
