My View – Story:
The Silence of the Stars was reviewed at Prism Book Alliance before here.
I don’t have too much to add and agree with what Josie said there, including the four-star rating.
I enjoyed both characters, though it took me longer to like Sandy than Everett. Sandy had a tough exterior and he seemed like somewhat of an ass at first. But when he opened up I loved him and his emotions were raw and open by the ending.
I’m enjoyed the PTSD conflict. It blended well with their relationship and didn’t take over the plot.
I’m a big fan of Kate McMurray and do my best to read all her books. This was one of her better ones, though not her best. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. It was well written and thoroughly enjoyable.
My View – Narration:
Michael Ferraiuolo did an excellent job with the narration. His inflections and tones made not just Sandy and Everett distinct but also all the supporting characters, of which there were several.
He did a particularly good job with Everett’s parents who were quite arrogant and looked down on his choice as a lover. Ferraiuolo didn’t go with stereotypes to succeed but used slight nuances to show their egotistical behavior.
I will listen to anything this man narrates.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks.
