Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Matty Smith | 2/17/2014

    " The campy wackiness found in the earlier books is pretty much gone but it's still great storytelling with characters you love, creating important and moving moments as they continue to grow up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Mark | 2/11/2014

    " Here is where Maupin starts to get all sentimental on us - and I just love it! We also get what the "Tales" books have never had before - a villian that we can boo and hiss at. And what do you know? It's Mary Ann! The book is a wonderful study in how relationships change and how we all develop over time. The Mary Ann in this book seems a million miles away from the young ingenue that we met in "Tales 1" and yet she IS one and the same. Michael really comes into his own in this book too; no longer an idealised Gay icon, but a real flesh and blood man with all the insecurities and conflicting loyalties that we all must contend with. The "Tales" books have come of age and just continue to get better from here on in! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Mace | 2/10/2014

    " This book was more grounded, and I liked it better because of it. Mary-Ann and Brian have really become unlikable but believable characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sara | 2/2/2014

    " I re-read this series about every 2 years or so. Never ceases to make me laugh or cry. I love all these characters. "
