Simple Men | [Eric Arvin]

Simple Men

Chip Arnold is a well-liked football coach at a small liberal arts college, but his personal life is in a bit of a rut. He goes out drinking with his colleagues, gets along well with his players, and dates all the prettiest women in town - he has the life most straight men dream of. But lately none of the women he dates seem to be igniting any passion in him. Then he meets the new school chaplain, Foster Lewis. Romantic attraction to another man is new and terrifying, and Chip just can't put his finger on why he's drawn to Foster, but it's stronger than anything he's felt for anyone in his life.

    "Couldn't stop laughing or listening"

    Charlie David is a great narrator. He is the reason I choose this book.

    While the characters in this book all acted about 10 years younger than they actually were, it was great fun. Chip's fear of squirrels and inner dialog were hilarious. I loved Kate's golf cart and Brad's and Jason's antics made me chuckle. The romances could have been more mature, but I laugh so much that it didn't matter - what's not to like about something that keeps you laughing.

    "Almost Good"
    What did you like best about Simple Men? What did you like least?

    I liked the author's ocassional insights about life and relationships that were dotted here and there into the story. The aspect I like least was a total lack of story around one adult man realizing he was gay, or at least bi. He sort of went


    Would you be willing to try another book from Eric Arvin? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't pay for it, but I'd give one a listen.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His voice was too gay. Had trouble getting the straight man (men) right and the female character came out sounding like a very gay man.


    Do you think Simple Men needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nope. It was a complete story as is.


    Any additional comments?

    The writing was half-way decent compared to romance books in general. Not literature, not edge-of your seat, but not stupid either.
