Finding Zach | [Rowan Speedwell]

Finding Zach

For five years, Zach Tyler, son of one of the world’s richest software moguls, was held hostage, tortured, and abused. When he is rescued at last from the Venezuelan jungle, he is physically and psychologically shattered, but he slowly begins to rebuild the life he should have had before an innocent kiss sent him into hell. His childhood best friend David has lived those years with overwhelming guilt and grief. Every relationship David has tried has fallen apart because of his feelings for a boy he thought dead.

Publisher's Summary

For five years, Zach Tyler, son of one of the world’s richest software moguls, was held hostage, tortured, and abused. When he is rescued at last from the Venezuelan jungle, he is physically and psychologically shattered, but he slowly begins to rebuild the life he should have had before an innocent kiss sent him into hell.

His childhood best friend David has lived those years with overwhelming guilt and grief. Every relationship David has tried has fallen apart because of his feelings for a boy he thought dead. When Zach is rescued, David is overjoyed - and then crushed when Zach shuts him out. Two years later, David returns home, and he and Zach must come to terms with the rift between them, what they feel for each other, and what their future could hold. But Zach has secrets, and one of them might well destroy their fragile love.

    Story
    "Very compelling story, characters, with redeeming"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Sexy, romantic, socially aware, a parable for any age.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both Charles and Tristan. Who wouldn't love them, or have compassion for them?


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    A little self-conscious about its research, but who cares. I thoroughly enjoyed it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, several.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd like to know or BE the main characters. lol

    "Wonderful Story - Awful Narration"
    Would you try another book from Rowan Speedwell and/or Paul Morey?

    Great writer. I've read a lot of this author but won't buy any more audible versions narrated by Paul Morey.


    Who was your favorite character and why?


    Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Morey’s performances?

    No - sounds like he's reading a book report - dull and monotone - messed up Matter of Time, also, so I won't buy any more audible versions read by this person.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Correction, I loved this book and have read it several times. I did not think the narrator was the correct one for this book. Wonder what it would have sounded like if he had actually read the book before narrating it !


    Any additional comments?

    I feel sorry for those who do not have access to the written versions of Finding Zack (or Matter of Time) because the audible versions are so poorly done. Shame on you, Audible, when you have access to such wonderful narrators as Jack LeFleur and Sean Crisden. I wish you had chosen Robert Nieman or Max Miller.

    Story
    "WHat Drama!"

    Good story, filled with drama, but Man... I don't know... it was more like an emotional thriller or something than a m/m romance. Poor Zach though... I was near tears at times, hating him at others.
