Great story! Gives me a new perspective on its subject!

I loved the story. Being a straight man, I used to not think much about homosexual people. Now I have great sympathy for them, because I realize that they often have to go through a great deal of pain and grief just to be able to show affection for someone they truly care about. This book actually made me cry, which is a nearly impossible feat for a book.

It also helps that all of the characters are furries! I'm sorry, but anthropomorphic animals will always be cuter to me than humans.

Great story plus great narrator

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend this audiobook to my friends because I know they will fall in love with the characters and the story like I did when I first read this book back in 2009.

What did you like best about this story?

Waterways has been one of my favorite book from Kyell Gold. Ever since I first read this story, the characters has provided inspirations for me during difficult times of my life. I find myself relating to the things that happen to Kory in the story, some of which parallel what was going on in my life at the time. I've read and re-read both the entire book and sections from the story multiple times and it helped me find the strength to believe I can get through the obstacles I was facing and that things get better. Then there were a couple years during which some very big events of my life took place and in that time I hadn't been able to revisit Waterways and many other books that I greatly enjoyed. However, when I saw the author's blog post about the audiobook release, I did not hesitate in clicking the add to cart and buy button and listening to the story felt like falling in love all over again. I was pleased that I remember all the things that happens in the book, but what came as a surprised for me was that it was a completely different experience than before. The past 3 or 4 years of my life had changed me and my outlook on things tremendously, but when listening to the story, I was reminded of a younger, more naive version of myself by Kory while at the same time I was seeing how much I had changed and grown. By the time I finished listening to the audiobook, I felt a sense that I also came out on the other side of my struggles just as Kory did with his.

What about Robert M. Clark’s performance did you like?

Robert Clark's narration is by far my favorite from the audiobooks I listened to on audible, albeit I've only listened to about 7 different narrators so far. He puts so much life into each of the characters that I love and hate. I would definitely like to check out other books he narrates.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, it was really emotional for me, I cried and laugh and rewind to listen to specific scenes over and over.

Any additional comments?

Buy it!

Enlightening

A wonderful book that makes you feel terrible and happy 1000 times over; all while reliving the fears of your own life, Homosexual or not.

Sweet, sentimental, and relatable

A beautiful story about love and acceptance that doesn't require being a furry to enjoy. Robert Clark is a great narrator and Kyell Gold is a wonderful and charming writer.

Wahrscheinlich das beste Buch das ich kenne

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an Waterways gefallen?

Die Story ist so unfassbar berührend... Die Charaktere sind glaubhaft und man will das Buch eigentlich gar nicht zu Ende lesen, weil man nicht will, dass die Geschichte endet. Sehr beeindruckend finde ich den Verlauf den die Handlung nimmt und wie es umgesetzt wurde. Aber ich will eigentlich nicht zu viel vorwegnehmen.
-
The Story is so incredible touching... The Charakters feel so real and you actually don't really want to finish the book because you don't want the story to end. The turn of the Plot is also pretty impressive to me and how it's done in the book. But I don't wanna tell you too much ;)

Welcher Moment von Waterways ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

Der Part, in Korys Haus als Samaki das zweite mal übernachtet.
-
The part Samaki's staying overnight in korys room for the second time.

Haben Sie vorher schon ein Hörbuch mit Robert M. Clark gehört? Wie würden Sie beide vergleichen?

Nein habe ich nicht

Nope I don't.

Pretty good

This audiobook is about being oneself and struggles in a relationship, but it's still pretty funny from time to time and it's not hard to keep focus.

While I'm not too interested in religion, it was pretty okay in it's religious parts. But I don't think the anthropomorphic characters added a lot of the story, so it's just preference.
