Kory was having enough trouble in high school. His girlfriend just dumped him, his poetry made him a target for ridicule, and college applications were looming. The very last thing he needed was to fall in love with another boy.

Furry Romance at it's finest

Waterways is a masterpiece in deep emotional furry romance, it made me laugh and cry on multiple occasions and I really felt for each and every character, it is so amazingly and realistically written, I want to live in the world of this novel.

Kyell Gold has managed to capture my heart with the tale of Kory and Samaki, the book is highly relatable for me and it has a very special place in my heart.

Not only is the writing so amazingly realistic and well done, the narration is also flawless, making this a novel you will want to listen to time and time again, start to finish, with no breaks.

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!

An emotional ride.

It's hard to say into words what I really feel, but this was an emotional rollercoaster. At one moment uncertainty, at another its sheer joy, and at one point pain and dread. This was such a good book, that it really touched my soul. The confusion and terror of what will happen to the two beautiful souls, mingle with the blissful happiness of real love. Everyone has been in situations that they wish they could redo, and this story of a confusing time is so pure that it makes me long for that same kindness and love. By far, this is worth every penny, and is one to keep in your heart forever.

Absolutely amazing story and eye opening!

The story is absolutely amazing and really opened my eyes to what happens to kids that you may not know. It really helps me to keep an open mind to what people like in their lives and to support them no matter what. I loved this story and recommend it to all of my friends!

highly recommended for young gay people

definitely a story for those who struggle with their sexuality and the way other people or their own families view them, I really wish I had known this author years ago, I probably would have ended up in a completely different place if I had
