Amir wants to meet a guy outside of a bar. Kinzi wants someone who won't cheat on him. Vico just wants a quick lay. In Gateway, when you need to meet someone, there's no one better than sexy, flirty Hayward to get you just what you want - or at least have a good time trying. But when Hayward himself needs someone, who will be there to help?

Excellent descriptive writing, good dialog, convincing and deep characters. Almost a series of vignettes describing the ripples caused over a year by a gentle, generous, haunted main character. There are spot-on portraits of depression, love, self-sacrifice, loss, grief, and extraordinary kindness. What's different and surprising, and in Gold's hands works very well, is that the novel's world is one of gay furries -- anthropomorphic animals -- complete with hot sex scenes. In Gold's other novels, he uses the variety of animal species as a proxy to meditate on racial and sexual prejudice. Here, he exploits the psychic distance "animal" characters give to let his audience study and understand what can be the best in humanity.
Id say this is defiantly one of my favorite stories told by Kyell Gold by far because of his ability to tell a story based around several different characters that move the story in interesting directions. It feels like he created these characters as if they are real, in a way to what each of us has probably went through at some point in our life or another. Which in turn, made me feel more attached to the story and something I could relate to.
If there is anything in particular I have to mention is the ending, or rather there of "endings" for each character in this story has their own ending and it flows so smoothly when each and every one of them comes to a conclusion. The final ending alone I would say, ends it on such a perfect note that it made me a bit emotional, but very filling.
Id highly recommend listing to this book if you like deep character development and a complex way to tell a story around that involving relationships.
People keep telling me to read more. I will start with Kyell Golds books.
This book is extremely sexual but is not the star of the book. I still tear up at it. I think about myself in the situations and how I would react. How much I am like the characters. It touches me so much to read it.
Oh for sure. I enjoy his writing style. I would love to see his whole catalog on hear.
It was good, but it could have been more engaging.
I think it would make for an interesting concept. Considering the quality of film and television today, I'd rather not see this work abused by Hollywood.
It was good, but it could have been more engaging. The problem with Bridges is simple. I wish there was more of it. More context overall. More depth to the characters. More of the story. Something about it just felt rushed. You can clearly see all of the interesting paths laid out, but they don't seem to go very far. Overall I'd say, if you like Kyell's work, you should pick this one up. While your at it go buy Green Fairy :3
