I belong to a book club and this was the latest nominated book for us to read. I had of course heard of the film and vaguely knew the storyline. I liked the voice of the narrator which is always a good start with an audio book. How refreshing to listen to a what is basically a love story but yet so different , not simply because it is of two men but because of the lifestyle, era and society that they lived in. A thoroughly good read and very touchingly intense.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would as a complementary piece to the film.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Jack, he is an idol of bravery and challenging for what feels right to himself. The way he cherishes and looks to the future when the future does not look kindly on him.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
In Jack's room, it's quite a powerful scene.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me sad, to listen to a story that did not work because of prejudices of old times.
Any additional comments?
I found it peculiar how the audiobook seems to go through the story a lot faster than the film in terms of the scenes. Expecting a descriptive chapter about the scenery, the feelings, etc. It goes to show how the direction added more to my expectation. The audiobook refers to many significant scenes/pieces of their history as in the past but in the film you can see them happen and connect them to their feelings later on. I find it interesting.
