    "Just okay!"

    while the narrator was good, the storyline was not enough to make this listen more than "just okay". If you are looking for a read which keeps your interest and has you wondering what will happen next then this is not it!

    "Had to warm up to the narrator - but a good story!"
    Where does A Serving of Love rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Although I thoroughly enjoyed a 'Serving of Love' – some of Andrew Grey's other writings (the 'love means...' Series) a bit more. Overall, a good read!


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Gelder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first time listening to this narrator. It took me a while to warm up to him… But once I did, I found that I enjoyed the story more & more.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved that Andrew Grey wrote a current story - which allowed me to relate to the characters well. He's a good author & I look forward to reading more selections by him.

    Story
    "Not as good as the others"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story isn't as engaging as the others by Andrew Grey. The emotions of the characters didn't feel genuine and the entire romance was too fast. There wasn't enough time (calendar-wise) for the internal struggles of a guy coming out of the closet and dealing with public life.

    The story makes a point of Robert's height and then doesn't use it in anyway. It notes Gregory's illness, but that moves from mild to severe too quickly to be able to identify with him or others nearby.

    And the love scenes don't feel realistic, especially for a first love.


    What didn’t you like about Jeff Gelder’s performance?

    The entire performance felt like someone had cut out fractions of the seconds, or was playing it at 1.25. Without the worded cue (Robert said, Billy said, etc...) the characters were indistinguishable.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, like the author's works, but this one felt flat.

    "Uplifting"

    Very nice love story! I enjoy listening to stories like this that do not focus on negativity and despair as if we do not have enough of them in the real world!
