Belens Audio Book Review

To be honest I have not seen the movie. All I knew about the audio book was that Charlie David both wrote and narrated it. Now, I make no bones about Charlie David being one of my favorite narrators so this was a no brainer for me to snatch into my hot little hands. Reading the blurb I figured it was going to be an emotional ride, and, boy, was I right!

With some narration I can immerse myself to the point I feel almost like I'm sitting in the front row of the story. That's what happened to me i

Mulligans, A Novel, is probably an example of when an adaptation from a movie script is better than the movie. And since the movie was good, you have an idea of how good the book is.

I liked Mulligans, the movie, but I felt real sorry for Chase, the young gay man who falls in love for his best friend's father and who, at the end of the movie, walks away from the happiness he found with that family. It was sad, even if probably true, my romantic heart was really weeping for that little boy, since

Having seen the talented Charlie David as a primary character in the guilty pleasure gay-themed supernatural soap drama 'Dante's Cove', and within other independent films, such as 'A Four Letter Word' and 'Kiss the Bride', amongst others, I was thrilled to see that he had turned his hand to writing and producing regarding his newest venture called 'Mulligans'. Charlie wrote the screenplay for this feature film, which centres around the theme of second chances using the golf-analogy of a mulligan ...more

Wow! This one blew me away. The story was so engaging with twists and turns I never expected. From start to finish I simply could not stop, I could not put it down. I had to know what happened next. While I wouldn't call it a happily ever after ending, it most definitely ended with hope for a better future for everyone. Very well plotted story that was a true pleasure t read. It is rare to find a story so well crafted, depicting such deep personal and family struggles. A++, 5 stars, top rating u ...more

I listened to the audio version of this book. First off this is not a MM romance book. It is a story about coming out and coming to grips with your choices and the consequences thereof. There is no HEA, but there is LEA (life ever after). This is the story of two men, Chase and Nathan and their struggles with coming to terms with who they are and the choices they have made. I guess there is a movie and the book is based on the movie, but with a better ending. Since I haven’t seen the movie, I do ...more

I saw the movie upon which this book was based a few months ago. This was a quick read and didn’t really lend much more to the story than what I got from the movie. It’s about a college guy who is in the closet, visiting the lake for the summer with a friend, staying with the friend's family. He gets wrapped up with his friend’s dad, who is also in the closet, and they both get caught. The novel (and the movie) is what I would call “light weight” fiction. Not a bad read, but the characters do no ...more

That was annoying. The writing is good, the reader is good (I love him, actually. The fact that he and the author are one and the same is a bonus) but I did not enjoy at all how things turned out. I get it, I do, but it wasn't done in such a way that I likes it. It has its moments though, this book does. I'm not sorry I got it at all, despite my whining.

3.5 stars. I agree with some of the reviewers that this tale is more coming out/accepting yourself than a MM Romance per se. Nonetheless, it's a good story with real people and a very likely outcome of things. Why the rating then? The story is too close to home for me *sighs*

It was a good book, it covered the movie but it had more, filling in scenes that likely got cut at some point fleshing out the relationship between Chase and Jarod more and giving more depth to Nathan. It’s a good movie and a good book
