    Inhaltsangabe

    Laurence Dalziel is worn down and washed up, and for him, the BDSM scene is all played out. Six years on from his last relationship, he's pushing 40 and tired of going through the motions of submission. Then he meets Toby Finch. Nineteen years old. Fearless, fierce, and vulnerable. Everything Laurie can't remember being.

    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.

    Wow

    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.

    Thuroughly enjoyed it!

    I might have a soft spot for gay love stories, but this book had me laughing, and crying so many times. The story just felt really plausible, and close to home, and the characters were well written and developed. Also the narrators are both perfect for their respective roles. Loved it!

    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.

    einfach nicht meins

    Alexis Hall ist als Autor gut, die Hauptfiguren sind insgesamt sympathisch. Aber mit dem wichtigsten Element des Buchs dueser speziellen Spielart von Liebe (dom/sub), bin ich einfach nicht warm geworden. Eine der Stimmen mochte ich auch nicht, das hat wenig mit der Sprecherleistung zu tun. Aber dadurch war es mehr Pflicht als Vergnügen, das Buch zuende zu hören.

    I came for a cheap sexy thrill,

    but then I stayed for the utterly brilliant writing! The emotional intelligence of this author seems off the charts, really. The writing skills required for dialogue on that level makes me believe this is a pseudonym of one of the biggest names in literature. But it seems Mr. Hall is quite real, and judging by the quantity of his output, (and the intensity and urgency of this text) is just someone who would stop living, if he had to stop writing. I have never been so surprised. And indeed, on top of it, the speakers are a treat and very well cast. This book is thoroughly enjoyable.
