South of Bixby Bridge
- By: Ryan Winfield
- Narrated by: Ryan Winfield
- Length: 8 hrs and 13 mins
What would you do if you weren't afraid? That's the question facing young Trevor Roberts as he's being discharged from drug rehab, sure that he's hit rock bottom with nowhere to go but up. With more twists than California's Highway 1, the intimate narrative follows a young man on a wild month-long ride to the dizzying, drunken heights of Napa Valley excess where he falls fast for his new boss's intoxicating wife and becomes entangled in a strange threesome affair. But things soon begin to unravel as Trevor is drawn into a secret world of sex and scandal, only to have his lust for success drag him down again through a phantasmagoria of hedonistic hell.

Perfect novel to be an audible book
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, of course I would recommend this audio book. The narrative it'self is read very well. I see it as a journey. A true to life journey of one man finding himself and realizing what he really wants in life. Most importantly learning what he doesn't want in his life.
What other book might you compare South of Bixby Bridge to and why?
I find it unique in it's story that you wont find too often in other books.
What about Ryan Winfield’s performance did you like?
This was my first audio book and I thought it would be confusing to be read by one person, but it works wonderfully, since it's told first person. You hear every expression and feeling in his voice. There was a never a doubt about what Trevor is seeing or thinking.
Having read the book about a year ago, it was different this time around. You really hear how lost Trevor is, how creepy Paul can be and how seductive Tara is. I didn't feel that I was listening to a book but listening to the author tell me a story.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Laugh or cry? All the time! Frowns, smiles, tears and laughs, all the time.
Any additional comments?
Wonderful book to be read as an audio book. It's not a pretty story the whole time. You have to see what Trevor goes through to get to his point of addiction, it can't be a pretty story but it's written so well.
