We all find ways to run away. Some do it in seclusion, others in the arms of lovers.
Since the death of his long-time partner, Caleb Maguire lives a quiet life in Australia’s Victorian high country with only his dog and horses for company. Each day is the same. There are no surprises—good or bad—until a major snowstorm hits his mountain and Caleb is called out to rescue a stranded tourist. The late night snow brings with it a lost soul who forces Caleb to reassess his solitary life.
Paul Turner is a barista in the trendy Melbourne suburb of Carlton. He lives life totally in the moment, but a life of no commitments is about to change for this city boy. Three days is all it takes for Paul to fall hard for Caleb, and Paul returns to the city with a promise he’ll be back after turning his life around… but only when all the roads are clear.
I absolutely hate leaving these kinds of reviews, but Snowman in audiobook form did not hold my attention and after 2 hours of repeating section after section, I had to give up on this one. The content itself was on the slow side and when paired with the droning, monotonous narration, I just could not find it in me to care enough about the story to listen to the end. I apologize to the author but this was not for me.
This narration was not good. Brad’s voice was fine but his presentation of this story was boring. There was no emotion, no characterization, no nothing other than slow, steady, monotonous reading. Even his lovely accent could not get me to continue this one to the end.
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. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
Thank you so much for your support over the last 4 years. Prism will be closing its doors on 1 April 2017. All content will remain available, but no new content will appear after 31 Mar 2017. As such all request forms have been turned off. Again Thank you,
