The initially turbulent relationship between Harlan and Billy flowers into one of the most beautiful loves in modern literature. Yes, I would go that far.
Billy Sive is my favourite character. He is intelligent, always honest, a romantic, silly in a fun way, and abandons himself to love. Oh, and his eyes are described as being a shade of blue that is hard for me to my imagine. Billy is also very brave, a kind of bravery we need much more of in our daily lives.
His reading is simply perfect. It is capable of great emotion and the stating of cold, unyielding facts. His narration is flawless.
I cried and laughed several times listening to this story, even after hearing it several times.
Buy this audiobook. It is a magnificent story and a wonderful narration.
This is an excellent audiobook. Gillies' narration is marvelous, his characterizations enjoyable and unique.
The plot is simple enough, but it is developed well, skillfully, and with characters and dialogue all but the hardest hearts would find endearing. Jay is my favorite character. He is so vibrant and charming that he jumps off the page (or out of the audiobook). He is simply fabulous. Liam is a charmer, too. One might think it is an odd pairing at first, but they fit together remarkably well. By the end, I couldn't imagine them apart.
Favorite scene? When the photograph of Liam and Jay is taken at the end. Very lovely moment.
I will follow this author now. I certainly hope I get to see more of Liam and Jay in the future.
