Life after Joe | [Harper Fox]

Life after Joe

Ever since his longtime lover decided he'd seen the "heterosexual light", Matt's life has been in a nosedive. Six months of too many missed shifts at the hospital, too much booze, too many men. Matt knows he's on the verge of losing everything, but he's finding it hard to care. Then Matt meets Aaron. He's gorgeous, intelligent, and apparently not interested in being picked up. But newfound happiness is threatened when Matt begins to suspect Aaron is hiding something - or someone....

Publisher's Summary

It's not the breaking up that kills you, it's the aftermath.

Ever since his longtime lover decided he'd seen the "heterosexual light", Matt's life has been in a nosedive. Six months of too many missed shifts at the hospital, too much booze, too many men. Matt knows he's on the verge of losing everything, but he's finding it hard to care.

Then Matt meets Aaron. He's gorgeous, intelligent, and apparently not interested in being picked up. Still, even after seeing Matt at his worst, he doesn't turn away. Aaron's kindness and respect have Matt almost believing he's worth it - and that there could be life after Joe. But his newfound happiness is threatened when Matt begins to suspect Aaron is hiding something - or someone....

    "Another wonderful story"

    I really enjoyed this book. The narration was a bit difficult to understand the first four or five times I listened to it, but after you get used to the accent it is a wonderful ride. It is now on my favorites list of books I listen to every few weeks.

    "Just lovely"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    At first the narration was a bit difficult to follow, but it was certainly worth it. Enjoy!

    "love the story, not the narration"

    I own both the text and audio versions of this story. Although it's a short story, it's still one of my favorite of all romances. Harper Fox is a very talented writer -- and you can see that here in her depiction of Matthew's despair and desolation, as well as in the vivid descriptions of Newcastle, the helicopter, and the oil rig in addition to the romance itself.

    Unfortunately, the narrator doesn't do any justice to this great story. He is working hard to present a "Geordie" (Newcastle) accent, but it's pretty obvious that he isn't a native (I've been listening to a lot of genuine Geordie accents, and this one just doesn't cut it). And in his attempts to replicate that accent, the narrator has completely forgotten about the character of the story. Matthew, the main character and narrator, is in the final stages of complete disintegration -- he's coming apart at the seams. As another character tells him, he's "in bits". Yet the narrator here makes Matthew sound nearly cocky and bouncy. It's all wrong. And it's quite disturbing to hear a fine story being distorted in this way.

    My advice is to stick with the text version on this one. If you appreciate good writing, you should check it out. Don't give up on Harper Fox just based on the bad narration here.

    "I Couldn't Understand the Reader"

    I didn't finish listening to this novel because I couldn't understand the reader. His accent was very... difficult for me to process.

    I have no idea if the story itself was good, because I couldn't understand it.

    "Good Story, Terrible Narration"
    Would you try another book from Harper Fox and/or Sean Crisden?

    I love Sean Crisden, but I'm just not sure this is the same Sean Crisden I love. This was terribly difficult to understand.


    What didn’t you like about Sean Crisden’s performance?

    Very hard to understand

    Story
    "Dear god make it stop!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the narrator didn't try and force an accent. It was pretty painful to listen to, and I LOVE Sean crisden! But this was just not for him.


    Has Life after Joe turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, you can't base and entire genre off of one experience with one book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sean Crisden’s performances?

    For sure! I love him in most of his other performances. Even if he mumbles a bit and does some weird muppet voices, I think it adds to the experience.
