Life, love, and addiction grip a young couple in a small town.
What made the experience of listening to That Winter the most enjoyable?
I really enjoyed the two short stories in That Winter. Both stories would be even better though if they were a bit longer. I would love to see them with more detail for the characters. Overall, it was very well written and I would love to read more from this author.
This is the love story of two young people who meet in a small town. It unfolds as a "slice of life" and walks us through a time that separates one winter from all others in a young man's life.
What presents at first as a simple storyline is anything but. The author's talent with imagery is impressive, and provides the reader with visual descriptions of places and characters that pull you in, Mr. Lane almost creates a kind of melancholy fog in this story, as if to warn the reader to prepare themselves.. someone is going to lose.
When Audible announced the author as narrator, I groaned. I listen to books on Audible frequently, and can only think of a few authors who are successful narrators. Mr. Lane did an excellent job.
Appropriate for the young adult and adult audience.
