Toby doesn't know who he wants to be or what he wants to do. But he knows, with all the certainty of youth, that he wants Laurie. He wants him on his knees. He wants to make him hurt, he wants to make him beg, he wants to make him fall in love. The problem is, while Laurie will surrender his body, he won't surrender his heart. Because Toby is too young, too intense, too easy to hurt. And what they have - no matter how right it feels - can't last. It can't mean anything. It can't be real.

Zuerst bin ich immer etwas skeptisch und kann Sprecher und Person im Buch nicht gleich zusammenbringen. Aber hier passt alles: die beiden Sprecher lassen Bilder von Toby und Laurie im Kopf entstehen, man lebt mit Ihnen. Und die Story selbst ist einfach nur 'Wow', intensiv, gefühlvoll, sexy, mit durchdachten Dialogen und viel 'Insight' in die Gedanken von Toby und Laurie.

A wonderful performance of a lovely book.
Würden Sie For Real noch mal anhören? Warum?
I am sure I will listen to this book again and again. It's is a lovely audio version of a lovely book. The book has changing points of view, and in the same way the audiobook has two narrators. Toby, a young man with a wild combination of certainty and uncertainty, Laurie, older and more jaded, with his emotions locked away but so open, physically. The alternating voices felt very real in print, but even more so here.
Haben Sie vorher schon ein Hörbuch mit John Hartley and Paul Berton gehört? Wie würden Sie beide vergleichen?
This was my first time with these narrators, but I think they did a marvellous job. Laurie's narrator has a lovely RP accent (and also does a passable Aussie accent). He's slightly melodramatic, and manages to convey Laurie's jaded, slightly cynical and "given up hope of more in life" attitude very well. Toby's narrator is clearly younger, and combines wide eyed marvel, late teenage passion and slightly gleeful cruelty very nicely. It's more than just "read," but done with conviction and emotion, and it really works. Which is what I liked most--how the narrators drag me in, emotionally. It does feel real. They bring this wonderful story to life and give it flesh.
