Publisher's Summary

Amir wants to meet a guy outside of a bar. Kinzi wants someone who won't cheat on him. Vico just wants a quick lay. In Gateway, when you need to meet someone, there's no one better than sexy, flirty Hayward to get you just what you want - or at least have a good time trying. But when Hayward himself needs someone, who will be there to help?

Remarkable

Excellent descriptive writing, good dialog, convincing and deep characters. Almost a series of vignettes describing the ripples caused over a year by a gentle, generous, haunted main character. There are spot-on portraits of depression, love, self-sacrifice, loss, grief, and extraordinary kindness. What's different and surprising, and in Gold's hands works very well, is that the novel's world is one of gay furries -- anthropomorphic animals -- complete with hot sex scenes. In Gold's other novels, he uses the variety of animal species as a proxy to meditate on racial and sexual prejudice. Here, he exploits the psychic distance "animal" characters give to let his audience study and understand what can be the best in humanity.

Loved it.

A very human romance, despite all the fur. A tale of loss, love, and loneliness.

A story of love & loss.

My heart fluttered as I listened, and i could really get a feel for the characters. The ending was sweet, and well deserved. This is a must have for those who love a good relationship/romance story. Most of all the story did not go the way I thought it would, but then it became something more. Something beautiful.

Disregard the first two chapters.

Bridges is an amazing story that does not need the first two chapters to "enhance" the story. The writing was simple to follow and told a complete story, only to make you wish for more.

Heart warming story

This was my first audio book I ever listened to, and I have loved every second of it! The story had its very hot and intimate scenes, which are really well described so you can imagine every thing that happens. The ending is so heart warming, and you really feel sympathy with the characters. A must read for other furries out there!

A perplexed way at storytelling

Where does Bridges rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Id say this is defiantly one of my favorite stories told by Kyell Gold by far because of his ability to tell a story based around several different characters that move the story in interesting directions. It feels like he created these characters as if they are real, in a way to what each of us has probably went through at some point in our life or another. Which in turn, made me feel more attached to the story and something I could relate to.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

If there is anything in particular I have to mention is the ending, or rather there of "endings" for each character in this story has their own ending and it flows so smoothly when each and every one of them comes to a conclusion. The final ending alone I would say, ends it on such a perfect note that it made me a bit emotional, but very filling.

Any additional comments?

Id highly recommend listing to this book if you like deep character development and a complex way to tell a story around that involving relationships.

One of Kyell Gold's best works

If you enjoyed Waterways or any other of Kyell Gold's works, rest assured that Bridges will provide you an amazing and intriguing emotional rollercoaster that subtly draws you into the plot, while giving you enough subplots to keep it from being a one way slog.

Having Kyell Gold himself narrate the book really brings the characters to life as he uses the voices with the particular tone and emphasis that he had in mind while writing the book. The performance he delivers manages to make each line of dialogue have more impact than the original written dialogue.

In regards to the content of the book, I enjoyed this just less so than Waterways (my favourite book, period) but more so than Out of Position (which is told around football, a sport I have little interest in). Unlike Green Fairy or other such works, this book is grounded entirely in reality (that is, reality inhabited by anthropomorphic characters) and focuses on regular people, much like Waterways. I'll avoid spoiling anything about the book here, the first three chapters essentially recap over the same event from different perspectives, this can be a bit of a slog admittedly even considering how much I love this book. But as soon as this passes and the chapters begin to focus on the here and now, an incredible story begins to unravel and enthrall you, one that had been hiding in plain sight throughout. Gold makes great use of foreshadowing throughout, in a manner almost reminiscent of Fight Club. By the time everything comes together, Gold picks up all the momentum he builds up and delivers revelations in short, slick and killer reveals. A single line from Gold can leave your jaw hanging and your mind wishing he would read the next page faster!

By the time you hear the final few beautiful pages, you'll have been taken on an emotional journey comparable to Waterways and will surely leave a lasting impact from the finale, and perhaps even a few tears rolling from your eyes. Overall, my second favourite work from Kyell Gold and a fantastic book to listen to and get invested in.
