    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Story

    It deserves more than 5 stars! The story is out of this world awesome. If you even sorta like dorky things or have an 80's fixation, this is the story for you. Loved it! And Will Wheaton is a great narrator, who would have known? This guy needs to write more books! Do yourself a favor, download this!

    In this suspenseful and deeply moving novel, Michael Thomas Ford propels us beyond smiling holiday photographs and beloved anecdotes to explore the complex ties within one family - and between two very different brothers whom catastrophe will either unite or divide forever....

    Story

    And I don't mean that in one of those "This is a happy surprise!" kind of ways.

    This book was one big incestuous mess! Even if there wasn't any real incest going on, every coupling seemed dirty and wrong.

    Very few characters had any redeeming qualities. The plot tried much to hard to lead you to believe others were the guilty party. And the jumping around? Gawd, my head hurt!

    And the ages were all so unbelievable! Who makes Sheriff/Chief in their early twenties???

    And why was this under Gay Novels? Because the author has other actual Gay Novels? Or because of one gay character who does little more than have a short bathroom tryst and one BJ with another horrible character? I've never read another Gay Novel with so little Gay in it. And I've read A LOT of them.

    But the WORST part, the absolute worst, is how in the heck is this in the same "series" as The Road Home? The two books have NOTHING in common! I'm a little worried to read Last Summer now. If it's completely different than the first two, I'm going to have trouble trusting this author. And since I have purchased a crap load of his books based on enjoying The Road Home, I'm going to be cranky if that is the only likable one.

    The narration was good though, I will give it that.

    In the story comic book legend Stan Lee calls "spellbinding" and "totally original," Thom Creed has secrets. For one, like his father, he has super powers. Also, he's been asked to join the League—the very organization of superheroes that spurned his dad. Then there’s the secret Thom can barely face himself: he's gay. But becoming a member of the League opens up a new world to Thom. There, he connects with a misfit group of aspiring heroes, including Scarlett, Typhoid Larry, and Ruth, a wise old broad who can see the future. Like Thom, these heroes have things to hide....

    Robert says: "Give it a listen!"
    "Such a Wonderful Story! Thom Creed is amazing!"

    Story

    A must for superhero fans, since there are not enough superhero books on Audible. The story of a teen coming to terms with a disease that causes him nothing but embarrassment and being gay, which everyone seems to know without him telling them. Add to that the manifestation of superpowers? Just makes a great story. Read it!!

    Since 9/11, Brooklyn firefighter Griff Muir has wrestled with impossible feelings for his best friend and partner at Ladder 181, Dante Anastagio. Unfortunately, Dante is strictly a ladies’ man, and the FDNY isn’t exactly gay-friendly. For ten years, Griff has hidden his heart in a half-life of public heroics and private anguish. Griff’s caution and Dante’s cockiness make them an unbeatable team. To protect his buddy, there’s nothing Griff wouldn’t do… until a nearly bankrupt Dante proposes the worst possible solution: HotHead.com, a gay porn website where uniformed hunks get down and dirty.
