It's a comfortable read, the emotions are real you're easily drawn into the lives of Bear and the kid.
The story is peppered with emotional extremes, the good kind. The story takes you into the thick of it; it's like your watching the funny bits play out, like the heartbreaking bits are happening to you, but most of all, you know it's all going to be okay in the end.
Sean Crisden is one of my preferred narrators. Well done
All the time.
Can someone say Daddy issues? An exploration of father daughter relationships, plus a love story and rescue all in one.
Another great book by Michael Thomas Ford. I wonder, coincidence that the protagonist Mike, meets his true love, Father Thomas in this book? Wouldn't that be fun?
Always a fan of Josh Lanyon, I like this collection of short stories. Perhaps there's a longer book somewhere in there - Sweets for the Sweet?
I'm fast becoming a Michael Thomas Ford fan. An idilic view of life in Provincetown, a best case scenario for a gay movie super star and an instant family for an middle aged lesbian.
I wander what Martha thinks of this book? It's a well written chronicle of the two city boys trying to find the farming skills they need to save the Beekman mansion, only to finally realise that their urban savvy is what they needed all along. A really honest and forthright read.
Reading the synopsis I wasn't immediately drawn to this book. Instead I found a well written exploration of a life long friendship. Loved it - I was wrapped up in the story from the first moment.
A well composed tale of family secrets and lies. If you're looking for a M2M romance, this isn't your book. True, Billy, the wash out youngest sibling is gay, and features prominently in the story, but mostly he's living recklessly in a world of drugs, booze and anonymous sex. He finds his redemption in an unlikely and equally dysfunctional small town victim and right at the end, there's a hint of a happily ever after.
At last, a book you don't need to check your scepticism at the door for. The characters feel real. The author doesn't feel the need to wrap up every minute detail, but concentrates on the the protagonist's story line. The "ghosts" in the plot didn't feel contrived, and even the naked swimming ritual at the pond, however bizarre, added to the emotion of the Burk's return home. A really fantastic book.
The second in the Adrien English series is definitely a great book. I've got a couple of his books in my library - good thing, because these are the types of stories you end up going back to.
I've really begun to appreciate Lanyon's style, primarily because he doesn't have an overt style. Seamlessly he adapts to the narrative, each book unique in it's own way. I listened to this book right after "Come Onto These Yellow Sands" expecting the same, and it took me a little time to adjust to the style of the first Adrien English book. Both books are excellent - this man has literary chops!
Oh, and incase you missed it, the hottest sex scene bar none.
I loved this novel. It's superbly written, wonderfully narrated and a complete joy to listen to.
