    Three years ago, Bear McKenna’s mother took off for parts unknown with her new boyfriend, leaving Bear to raise his six-year-old brother Tyson, aka the Kid. Somehow they’ve muddled through, but since he’s totally devoted to the Kid, Bear isn’t actually doing much living. With a few exceptions, he’s retreated from the world, and he’s mostly okay with that - until Otter comes home. Otter is Bear’s best friend’s older brother, and as they’ve done for their whole lives, Bear and Otter crash and collide in ways neither expect.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Good story and the narrator did a great job. I was also like Bear, coming out of the closet was not easy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The beach seen when Bear tells Otter he loves him.

    The most important things in Simon Murray’s life are football, friends, and film - in that order. His friends despair of him ever meeting someone, but despite his loneliness, Simon is cautious about looking for more. Then his best friends drag him to a party, where he barges into a football conversation and ends up defending the honour of star forward Declan Tyler - unaware that the athlete is present. In that first awkward meeting, neither man has any idea they will change each other's lives forever.

    "Why not an Australian Accent or actor to read"

    Would you try another book from Sean Kennedy and/or Paul Morey?

    I already downloaded and read Tigerland on my kindle. My issue with the audiobook had nothing to do with the story it was the editing and the fact that it is a book set in Australia about people from Australia and it is read by an American, who give one minor character a southern accent


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thought it was a good well written story


    How could the performance have been better?

    As above, plus the editing should have been better. Repeated lines, doesn't anyone listen to it through before it was released.


    Could you see Tigers and Devils being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Chris Helmsworth for Declan
    Not sure for Simon
