Description

In the spring of 1995, Nate Cartwright has lost everything: His parents are dead, his older brother wants nothing to do with him, and he's been fired from his job as a journalist in Washington, DC. With nothing left to lose, he returns to his family's summer cabin outside the small mountain town of Roseland, Oregon, to try to find some sense of direction.

The cabin should be empty.

It's not.

Inside is a man named Alex. And with him is an extraordinary little girl who calls herself Artemis Darth Vader.

Artemis, who isn't exactly as she appears.

Soon it becomes clear that Nate must make a choice: let himself drown in the memories of his past, or fight for a future he never thought possible.

Because the girl is special. And forces are descending upon them who want nothing more than to control her.

Another amazing story

TJ Klune is a master storyteller. He has the ability to write in many different genres without losing that “thing” that makes his books so special. The Bones Beneath My Skin bring two broken men together in extraordinary circumstances and together along with a young girl bonds are made that can’t be broken.
Greg Trembly did an outstanding job narrating this beautiful book.

TJ Klune is freaking amazing!

it just amazes me how TJ Klune can go from romantic comedy, to horror, to sci fi, then back, then start all over again. This book kept me from beginning to end. I'm not one to talk about specifics but once again he brought a "kid" into the picture that just melted my heart.

One of a kind

The Bones Beneath My Skin was different from the books I've previously read by TJ Klune. Not in a bad way, it was just different.

Nate Cartwright has had some changes to his life lately; being fired from his job, losing both of his parents in a murder/suicide. Subsequently inheriting an old truck and a cabin in the remote parts of Oregon. Deciding to take some time to himself to re-evaluate his life, he sets off to the cabin. Only when he gets there he encounters a wounded man and a young girl. The man is pointing a gun at him, demanding to know who he is and who he’s working for. The girl says her name is Artemis Darth Vader. They are obviously on the run and in hiding. They are the strangest pair he ever met, and they will both irrevocably change his life.

This book is a mix of the mundane stuff; getting to know each other, preparing food, and just every day stuff. There’s also bursts of excitement and suspense when the men after Art catches up to them, when they run and fight. Interwoven are also a few flashbacks, learning the story of Art and Alex, how they met and connected. How they escaped. I can’t really tell you if it all fit or not, because it did – and it didn’t. And in some strange Klune way that was okay, that worked for the story anyway. (Can you tell I’m a bit confused?)

There is not a lot of romance in this book, hardly any if I’m being honest. It’s a fight against enemies, known and unknown. Expanding and broadening of minds. That’s not to say there wasn’t love in this story, because there was – and a lot of it. The three of them, no matter how different they might be; became a family. Formed bonds that couldn’t be broken by neither time nor space.

I love Greg Tremblay’s narrations. He’s a terrific narrator and extremely talented. With such a wide range of voices he easily distinguishes between the characters. Even his female voices sound credible and not over the top as some do. Tremblay delivers, it’s a given. Then there were parts, endings of certain chapters that were, to put it mildly, abrupt. I’m not used to that with Tremblay's narrations. It's usually such a smooth and easy listen. Now I found myself rewinding trying to figure out if I’d missed something. To the point where I actually did look it up in the print version just to make sure I wasn’t missing something. It threw me off and out of the story and made me focus on the narration instead of the story. I know that Klune has a particular way of writing, he is fond of abrupt changes, it’s not the first time he’s done this trick. This time though it threw me for a loop at times and it took some time for me to get back into the action. It wasn’t all the time, or many for that matter, but the few times it did happen it was noticeable.

The Bones Beneath My Skin wasn’t a book that produced many feelings in me one way or another. Sure, I smiled at times at Art’s antics and questions, but that’s about it. Otherwise I was just listening along, enjoying the moment for what it was. Sadly I can’t say that the times where I had to stop listening (due to RL) I was anxious to resume listening, but was perfect fine with waiting until life permitted me to pick up my earbuds and start listening again. So while I did enjoy this story, it probably won’t be one I’m likely to listen to again.

A copy of this book was generously provided by the the author in exchange for an honest review for Love Bytes.

Stunning!

TJ Klune never fails to catch me up in his words and worlds till I am stunned by the reach of his works. This story is by no means an exception. Beautiful, tense, haunting. Grab this audiobook and plan to dedicate yourself to being caught by a wonderful spiderweb excellently performed by Greg Tremblay.

Wow.... just. Wow.

TJ Klune is one of those authors that can alter his writing-voice so that you never can really anticipate the outcome of a story simply from the authors name. Each of his works stands apart from the other. You never quite know what you'll get, only that you will FEEL every single moment of it.
This book was no exception. There were tears of laughter, tears of pain, tears of relief.
Greg Tremblay's performance was lovely.

go buy this audiobook. do it. now. you won't regret it.

excellent story and narration

I love TJ Klune. His writing is poignant, funny, and emotionally engaging. This story was no exception. The characters are well developed and fleshed out and events are portrayed very well. There is a sense of excitement and adventure throughout the narrative. I wouldn't have minded if the ending was written differently but it was good. I wasn't disappointed but I wanted something more. Tremblay is excellent as always. His performance most definitely enhances the work. I'm sure it would have taken me much much longer to finish this if it wasn't for his performance. He could read the alphabet and I would still listen with bated breath.

Ugh, the feels

I absolutely love both TJ and Greg and them coming together for this was... Nothing short of amazing. Greg's narration and acting brought me to tears and the story, as I've come to expect from TJ, was emotional and breathtaking. I really hope these two team up again because I'm pretty sure we could all use the eargasms that Greg's voice partnered with TJ's words produce.

So much to think about now.

I have enjoyed so many of TJ Klun’s books. This one was exceptional and Greg Tremblay is an amazing narrator. Are there others out there in the cosmos and can we learn from each other. I hope so! Thank you for writing such funny and thoutful books. This was on the serious side and I enjoyed it just as much as the funny ones. Thanks to the narrator also, I enjoyed every minute!
