What would have made The Fall better?
A better classification would have prevented me from buying this audiobook. It is not a gay romance. At least in the first hour (four chapters) there is no mention of anyone being gay. I can see the setup coming, but there are several stories going on here and the gay part is not central so far. This book is 8 and a half hours long, I gave it an hour and all I heard were back stories. It might be a good listen if you like very verbose story telling, but I found it tedious.
What could Ryan Quinn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
I am sure it is a good book for some, but I expected more of a gay theme from a book listed in the gay and lesbian section.
