I can see where the appeal for most is.

I guess I wasn't as blown away as the rest of everyone (dear god the word count intimidated me). I don't ship the pairing, either, which probably took away some of the hearbreak for me.

who the fuck is ryan ross (view spoiler)

literally the only point of setting it in the sixties was to use homophobia as a plot device

spencer smith isn't an asshole what are you doing

why are they all out of character

This story was something completely amazing.

Not only that I kept being either frustrated about the characters, but I also was extremely mad at them many times, however in the end I couldn't help but be proud of them. I felt like I knew them personally; experiencing all the drama with them.

I also love how you can clearly witness all of them developing and at some point even growing up.

Plus the 70's era, in which is the whole story set is in my opinion absolutely perfect.

I have always hated reading fanfiction about real people. But when I started this story, I crossed over the 'screw it' line and here I am.

Even if you do not ship this paring, or even remotely like the band, it is hard to deny that this story isn't well written.

The writing/word choice is fantastic; that's what really made me love this story. I don't think I've ever read a book that has so many short sentences that make sense and are even more powerful than longer sentences.

This is probably one of my favorite books of all times. I FEEL so much while reading this book, moreso than any other book I can think of. The emotions in this book are real and they bleed into my own every day emotions. I laugh, cry, and throw things while reading this series and that is why it's so good.

Too good to even be called fanfiction. A true masterpiece.

it was a beautiful read. I loved watching all the characters develop and grow. I cried. I got mad. I laughed. I smiled. This book took me on a roller-coaster of emotions and I enjoyed it so much. I recommend this book to not only people who enjoy the band and ship ryden, but everyone else too because this book was written in such a way that you dont need actual context and can read it as a piece of fiction by itself.

This book is so full of emotion and is brilliantly written, The sentences are crafted so beautifully and I feel that someone who did not know of the real-life influences of this books characters could easily enjoy this series

I loved this story. I couldn't put it down. I was invested in the characters (who had amazing development throughout the story) and I laughed and I cried and it was just great. Probably my favorite thing I read this summer, but not the one I'll talk to people about.

THROAM was definitely an emotional roller coaster. It was big, and almost overwhelmingly intense and I loved every word of it. The characters were so real, motives were believable, and the happy ending well deserved.

This was more then a novel than a fanfiction. Personally, when I read fic I want it to be fic. It was amazingly written, no doubt. I prefer Anna Green's other works more.

I love the story because it always manages to fuck me up, I swear, NO other story gets me as strung out as this one, and it is fantastic.

There are not enough words to describe the epicness and perfection of THROAM. Amen. <3
