I love this writer!

Really nice book! I was so happy at the begging when their love just started and the optimism and positivism through the book kept me going! I recommend it! :)

Good Story and enhanced by a great Performance

Empathized with the main characters. Felt the adversity they faced. My favorite by far of the Jay Bell's book's.

Loved it!

I’ve purchased a lot of Jay bell’s books on audible and I have to say This one is one of my favorites if not my favorite one. I don’t get the criticism of the crime(s) that others referred to it’s not glorifying anything unnecessary so i don’t see why people were so upset. It’s a BOOK. Anyways like I said I enjoyed it.

Loved it

As a Jay Bell fan as of 2019, this was one of his books I heard good things about. I was introduced to Connor in Something Like Stories 1 Something Like Tonight and Kamikaze was on my list of books to read. My preference is Audio book and was elated when Bell announced Kamikaze was going to be on Audible.
This story of two outcast that find love is nothing new, but these two characters to me took this premise to a modern place where many of the LGBTQ community grew up in. I do believe that both characters were in the wrong in their revenge plots and I felt Bell did a good job showing the consequences of taking justice into your own hands. Even though Connor and David were the main characters, I felt my all time favorite was Gordon. Gordon stole the show for me and I laughed in every instance he was in the story.

Daft

Not at all up to the usual standards of Jay Bell. 'Straight Boy', is the yard-stick I measure all his books against. This was not a patch on it. The story is just so incredibly unlikely, and also inconclusive about the villain of the piece. Disappointing but listenable.
