Audible Editor Reviews

Mishka Shubaly might have found musical expression with his band Freskills, but he found his literary voice with his best-selling, autobiographical Kindle Singles. These mesmerizing episodes chronicle Shubaly's many years of recklessness and substance abuse that preceded his sobriety. Because Shubaly performs his stories himself in his worldly, weather-worn voice, the listener feels an added intimacy with the writer, who wears his heart on one sleeve and humor and humility on the other. Are You Lonesome Tonight? examines the fine line between addiction and love. This true story of infatuation gone bonkers belongs in the annals of audio's most gripping modern romances.

Free, short and different...but not really good

STORY (personal memoir) - This is the story of a lonesome male songwriter who admits he has a miserable existence, highlighted by failed relationships and an addiction to alcohol and drugs. He begins an online relationship with a girl which lasts about a month. They share their deepest secrets and fantasies, and she even sends him nude photographs. They are both "damaged" individuals and seem bonded by their problems. He becomes totally obsessed with her and dreams of a real future together...until he meets her in person. I don't want to reveal too much in case you decide to listen to it, but I will say he is surprised by who she is and feels duped by her deception. Their relationship really goes downhill from that point. The whole story is about screwed-up people in a screwed-up relationship. Like I said, it's different. The ending is okay.

PERFORMANCE - The author reads his own work and does an okay job. He has a very low voice which might be almost sexy if he were reading different material.

OVERALL - It's not bad, but it's not good either. It's an easy listen with lots of sexual language, and it's pretty dark. This is a free download so it's worth the "money," but I don't know if it's worth the time (1:17).

- AudioAddict "I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!"

Hysterical telling of the dangers of social media

The story itself, if true, is very creepy stalker-esque. The author/narrator does an okay job. His voice is monotone, so no intonation during funny or sarcastic moments. He does crack a couple jokes that would be funnier if his voice was more interesting. The story is definitely funnier than probably intended.
