The story is very good. Not surprising but still moving. It kind of reminds me of Bear otter and the kid (in the general story-Line not the writting) and since that story is one of my all time favorits in gay romance, i liked this one too. There is no humor in this one though, but you get to know the characters Well and feel for Them when they are in pain and cheers for Them when they are happy. I really love the narrators voice - so pleasent to listen to and he is good at making the stories Seem Real to the listener. He makes the story better. So worth a listen if you dont Want many surprising twists in the story but just Want to listen to a sweet story told by a great voice.

Would you listen to A Hundred Thousand Words again? Why?
I was really touched by the story and how the characters were trying to figure out their lives. But at the same time I was constantly a bit worried about possible sudden overdramatic Hollywood moments occuring.
Now that I know what happens I want to go back and really enjoy the way the story unfolds without the worry of what may come.
What did you like best about this story?
How it felt real and focused on the feelings. I love that the main story happened inside and between the main characters. It’s not that they were not affected by external forces, but it never felt forced or like the rest of the world was just there to push them along.
I'm so tired of how I feel many romance stories does not trust the relationship and personal development to be the center of the story. I hate half assed crime plots, or family and friends giving ultimatums or other overly simple scenarios.
Any additional comments?
This was the perfect book for me at the perfect time.
I was really moved and fell in love with all the characters. I was in the mood for a good cry and this absolutely delivered (for me a good cry is not really about a sad story but more about an emotional story)
I loved the performance by Sean Crisden, he really made all the characters come to live for me in this one.
To me one of the strong points in this coming of age story was how the characters feels like young people trying to figure out who they are and how to live their lives. I loved that they both knew that they didn’t have it all figured out yet. I love how they had a much easier time figuring out what the other person might need - it’s often much easier looking at other people's lives and feelings.
This just didn't work for me. I adore Sean's narration of the BOATK series, and cannot wait for the final book The Long and Winding Road which should be out any day now, but this one....the story has quite a few sex scenes [of course it does, it's a Riley Hart production], but I believe Sean is straight and married, so maybe not the best choice for a gay book with lots of sex I would've thought, but hey, that's just me. I know he's a brilliant narrator, and perhaps this one didn't work for him either.....
I've got other audiobooks by this author and others narrated by this narrator and I have enjoyed both, but unfortunately the combo just didn't work for me here. I like Sean Crisden, and he kept the pace going, but I think I'll try the print version of this one instead.
