    "Excellent collection"

    Josh Lanyon portrays "real" people. I always feel like his characters could be a friend or neighbour.
    I often forget I am reading/listening to fiction...
    I have read many of the stories in this collection, but I enjoyed several of them more this time due to great narration.

    "Awesome!!"

    This is a collection of maybe a zillion of Mr. Lanyon's short stories. Every one I wish was longer. This author just has an amazing gift for creating MCs that are smart, witty, vulnerable, endearing and any other adjective you can think of. There are different narrators for each story and they were all fantastic; not a bad one in the lot. How is that possible?! Does he have a stable of great narrators on retainer? Mr. Lanyon, please share them with the rest of the audiobook world!! Anyway, as I said, my only complaint was that the stories were not longer and were all HFN endings. Josh Lanyon doesn't believe in HEA; he just leaves you satisfied, but still wanting more.

    "Excellent, and the narrators are well chosen"

    Josh Lanyon is one of the best writers in M/M, but more to the point here, he does the best audiobooks in this genre. I don't see a list of narrators with their stories in this collection, so here it is:

    JM Badger: Perfect Day, In a Dark Wood, Other People's Weddings, Critic's Choice

    Rob Granniss: A Limited Engagement, Until We Meet Once More, Sort of Stranger Than Fiction

    Adam Chase: In Sunshine or in Shadow, In Plain Sight, Just Desserts

    Michael Oaks: The French Have a Word For It, Heart Trouble, Slings and Arrows

    All of the narrators are really excellent, but I particularly impressed with Michael Oaks, who captures the intensity and determination of some of Josh's younger protagonists.

    When I'm not reading MM romances I'm listening to them. Audio books get me through traffic and housework.

    "Simply brilliant"
    If you could sum up In Sunshine or in Shadow in three words, what would they be?

    Awesome narrators ftw!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of In Sunshine or in Shadow?

    A few standout new stories, like In Plain Sight but some were so deliciously good to revisit, like the wedding planner story from the Petit Morts series. All stories were made memorable by the awesome narration. Kudos to Lanyon for handpicking his actors so thoughtfully. Shows real respect for the medium and his fans.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They help add another rich layer to the characters and story. These narrators did a wonderful job at keeping each story unique and conveyed the angst, humour and the atmosphere in each of the fifteen different shorts masterfully.

    "So lovely!"
    What made the experience of listening to In Sunshine or in Shadow the most enjoyable?

    The stories - i love these stories! I've read and reread them and now i can also listen to them which is lovely.

    Plus, the narrators are very, very good. I also liked the fact that the narrators alternate so that each story has a new voice, and I like the short story format - i can fit these stories between daily tasks and it's relaxing and satisfying to hear a story from beginning to end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    One of my favorite characters is Ford from Heart Trouble. This is such a sweet little story and he's such a sweet guy.

    Also, Angelo Faust's butler from Critic's Choice. I like how he amuses himself greatly.


    Who was the most memorable character of In Sunshine or in Shadow and why?

    Rick from In Sunshine or In Shadow surprised quite a few laughs out of me, it was delightful to listen to the narrator's (Adam Chase, i think) take on this character.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm really enjoying this collection of short stories. It really has a story for every mood - funny, sweet, suspenseful, spooky, romantic, mysterious. I love it.

    "A nice collection of short stories"

    Always a fan of Josh Lanyon, I like this collection of short stories. Perhaps there's a longer book somewhere in there - Sweets for the Sweet?
