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?

Slow Beginning but Good Payoff

The first half, while an interesting idea, is a little slow. The second half has a surprisingly tragic, yet satisfying story. It's not terribly long, but if you're in the mood for some modern-contemporary gay stories, give it a go.

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.

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.

Another emotional ride!

This book is extremely sexual but is not the star of the book. I still tear up at it. I think about myself in the situations and how I would react. How much I am like the characters. It touches me so much to read it.

A fantastic story about romances

I really enjoyed this audiobook. The narrator's performance was excellent, and the story and characters were well written and touching.

Intriguing, but Lacking Depth.

Would you try another book from Kyell Gold and/or Kyell Gold?

Oh for sure. I enjoy his writing style. I would love to see his whole catalog on hear.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It was good, but it could have been more engaging.

Could you see Bridges being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

I think it would make for an interesting concept. Considering the quality of film and television today, I'd rather not see this work abused by Hollywood.

Any additional comments?

It was good, but it could have been more engaging. The problem with Bridges is simple. I wish there was more of it. More context overall. More depth to the characters. More of the story. Something about it just felt rushed. You can clearly see all of the interesting paths laid out, but they don't seem to go very far. Overall I'd say, if you like Kyell's work, you should pick this one up. While your at it go buy Green Fairy :3

Horrible

I was a big fan of Mr. Gold. until I heard this book. or better the first chapter. it gives gays a bad name, from what I could stomach to listen to it's even rapey in a way. I got to the part where the little fennec fox is taken advantage of by two guys. that part made me sick. I almost deleted every book of his I've bought. I loved his work. but this garbage just wasn't anywhere near his caliber of work. shows a dark side of him. in my opinion.
