A poignantly told story blending the past atrocities perpetrated to "cure" homosexuality with a modern romance. Such a tale could have been gruesome but Kim created a wonderful, awful way of highlighting our less than savory past, while telling a sweet love story.

There are many layers to this story. The almost delicate way that it is told makes it that much more powerful. Sometimes a simply told and not overly embellished story can really make you think.

Where does The Tin Box rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I would have to say that both this and Brute (yet to start Rattlesnake) are in my top 5 audio books. The Tin Box probably ranks no. 1. Full of emotion, and when William reads Billy's letters to his lover, I bawled...and you could hear the narrator's quavering voice too. Kc was definitely affected by the sadness of the letters content.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I loved Colby.
Have you listened to any of K.C. Kelly’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Oh yes, I've listened to several of Kc's narrations...especially The Knight of Laguna Avenue by Tara Lain, which is another brilliant characterisation.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It was, but it was impossible. I needed a break from the overwhelming emotions this story conveys.
Any additional comments?
A beautiful, beautiful story. You'd be mad to miss it....and be prepared to have tissues handy, you'll need them unless you've got a heart made of stone.
Wow! Such a beautiful, moving story. Perfectly narrated by K.C. Kelly.
My heart goes out to Bill and Johnny and all those who have suffered in such an appalling way.
I'm so glad Will and Corey found each other.
It's a sweet story and has a couple of enjoyable parts but overall it would have liked it better with either a bit more angst or at least some more hot sex. There was nothing in the story that would make me read it again and again like I do with my favorite gay romances.
