I have listened to a few of Josh Lanyon's Adrian English books now. This isn't as good as the first, but it is very thrilling and very entertaining. The main character is well written and likable. The story is compelling and entertaining and the narration is top notch.
I LOVED this book. It is another great example of the author refusing to play into most stereotypes of gay men, and has a perfect tie-in to the previous book. I listened to the whole thing in one evening! You will love it. I do recommend listening to Promises by Marie Sexton first, so you know what I am talking about with the tie-in from her previous work.
Narrator still needs some work though....
I have listened to a lot of gay romance novels and many of them seem to follow a certain theme: Single gay man meets single straight man. Single straight man falls (or doesn't fall) for single gay man, throw in a few sub-plots and BAM! a book. Well this is the theme of this book, but I enjoyed it so much more than the rest. I think the main reason I enjoyed it so much was because Ms. Sexton's gay characters don't fit into the stereotypes of gay men. I get so annoyed with characters being associated with musical theater, art, and divas simply because they are gay. These characters broke that mold from the beginning.
The narrator had a pleasant enough tone and all... but he could really use some practice.
I REALLY enjoyed this book. The author fills your mind with facts and details and the narrator dictates them to you in a clear, engaging manner of speaking. The subject matter, while horrifically grotesque is in a morbid way, quite interesting. By the end of the book, your heart will go out to the victims of this terrible crime.
It took me a long time to get over exactly how the story begins. It is an enjoyable listen, and I really enjoy Jeff Gelder's narrations. The book is definitely worth the time and money.
War, History, Aristocracy, Victorian moral values AND a gay love story? What more can you ask for? If I would have had time, I would have listened to it all in one sitting. All of the characters are relatable, well written and interesting in their own ways. The story line is easy to follow and entertaining and the narration couldn't be better.
I loved this book. I saw the movie when I was younger. It was a made for TV movie of the same name, but doesn't touch the quality of the book. It was well written, well read, and well researched (most of the Nazi officials were based on REAL people who REALLY did what the author accused them of!)
The main message of this book is: Be Afraid! And with good reason. The author unscrables the insanity that has come out of Washington and lays out the facts for all to see. She speaks about the failure of socialized healthcare in other nations, the conditions of the healthcare industry in those nations and the path we have been forced to walk down. I hope you have private insurance... then again, it will probably be worthless in a few years anyway.
For the scholar, this would be a great listen, and it was entertaining and thought provoking at first, but as time wore on I found myself wondering why I bought it.
I have seen the movie The Firm several times, and it is hands down, no comparison to the book. Grisham goes into so much more detail. I did find myself wondering on some things (e.g. does his wife find out about this? does he ever encounter that?) which were left unanswered in the book, but still, if you entertained by the movie, even to the slightest degree, you will be hooked on the audiobook. The one drawback was that I felt as if they narrator mispronounced a few names.
This audiobook had less to do with vegetarianism and more to do with the generic PETA stance about animal cruelty, animal byproducts and how eating "Flesh" is bad for you. Thank god it was so short. WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY
