As Jeremy grows accustomed to the veneer of a fabulous life, so grows his need for answers - as well as the danger of immeasurable harm. Weaving together a murder mystery, sexual ambiguity, and characters with hidden identities and agendas, Nick Nolan offers listeners a deliciously witty novel about the "puppet" who wishes only to be a real boy. Strings Attached is also a surprisingly heartfelt story about coming-of-age and coming out - not necessarily in that order.

A surprising treat!
Luke Daniels has become one of my favorite narrators. He transforms this story from just an OK coming of age/coming out read, to a truly wonderful experience. I don't think I would have enjoyed this story as much if I had read it. The POVs constantly changed and the story drags a little. But Mr. Daniels made me really enjoyed tagging along on Jeremy's journey and tragic adventure. I look forward to the next audiobook in the series, Double Bond, which is Arthur's story.

Wasn't expecting to like it so much
I really enjoyed the play with the Pinocchio story threaded throughout the book. It was subtle and well executed rather than an obvious "re-telling" of a fairy tale set in a modern setting. It was a bit slow to start, and there were a few kind of tedious trope moments (denial of orientation long past when it is reasonable, crush on the hot jock, etc.). In spite of those things, once it got going I found that I was sucked in.
Maybe it is my own "daddy" issue's, but I felt that the sore subjects that Nick Nolan touched on in so far as relationships with parents and finding substitutes when biological parents fail really resonated. I fell in love with Arthur. This is for sure a coming of age story, and not awash in hot gay erotica, though it does have a few good moments.
Luke Daniels is one of the narrators that I think I always enjoy.
Just for the economics of it, I wouldn't spend a credit, but it is worth the whyspersync reduced pricing deal for sure.
