    Originally reviewed for Uniquely Pleasurable.First, a disclaimer This review covers the original publication of the novel and not the movie tie in version The movie varies substantially and is really rather dreadful from the original novel and it is unknown if the tie in version of the novel was rewritten to incorporate new information and or details found in the movie.The novel The Night Listener is Maupin s fictional take on his interaction with Anthony Godby Johnson, a young boy who was Or...

    After reading the book, I m not sure why the trailers for the movie tried to pass it off as a thriller it s not creepy or scary or anything It s a mind puzzle and a mystery, but I guess Hollywood thinks its audience won t enjoy something cerebral they did the same thing with Stephen King s Secret Window its advertising campaign puzzles me to this day The neatest thing about the book is that it s based on something that actually happened to the author The copy of the book I have contains After reading the book, I m not sure why the trailers for the movie tried to pass it off as a thriller it s not creepy or scary or anything It s a mind puzzle and a mystery, but I guess Hollywood thinks its audience won t enjoy something cerebral they did the same thing with Stephen King s Secret Window its advertising campaign puzzles me to this day The neatest thing about the book is that it s based on something that actually happened to the author The copy of the book I have contains an article from The New Yorker that sums up the real life story, which is pretty similar to...

    Okay Within the first five pages, it became apparent that this book was about storytelling and truth and falsehood and embellishment Not only does the narrator, Gabriel Noone, tell the reader this point blank, but Armistead Maupin tells us that himself, by making the parallels between himself and his main character extremely easy to draw Okay, we think, here we have an equivalent Armistead Maupin, who has written an equivalent Tales of the City series, in which equivalent characters act out a Okay Within the first five pages, it became apparent that this book was about storytelling and truth and falsehood and embellishment Not only does the narrator, Gabriel Noone, tell the reader this point blank, but Armistead Maupin tells us that himself, ...

    I thought I knew what to expect from this book, and how it would resolve itself, because I knew that it was based loosely on Maupin s relationship with Anthony Godby Johnson, the teenage boy who wrote the memoir A Rock and a Hard Place, a book I read and which affected me quite a bit both when I read it and when I found out years later that it might all have been a hoax Lots of famous people were taken in by the possibly non existent Johnson, including Maupin and author Paul Monette.I was not I thought I knew what to expect from this book, and how it would resolve itself, because I knew that it was based loosely on Maupin s relationship with Anthony Godby Johnson, the teenage boy who wrote the memoir A Rock and a Hard Place, a book I read and which affected me quite a bit both when I read it and when I found out years later that it might all have been a hoax Lots of famous people were taken in by the possibly non existent Johnson, including Maupin and author Paul Monette.I was not expecting just how Maupin s reworking of the story into fiction would affect me It hit me on a few levels The way his character Gabriel Noone describes his incredible connection with the young Peter Lomax which mirrored so well the relationship I have with so many teenagers the conversation Gabriel has with his own father towards the end of the book which I wish I could have had with my own father and how the begi...

    This might have got 5 stars if it hadn t been for the ending Once I picked it up, I couldn t bear tom put it down, I became so engrossed in the plotline and the mystery as to whether or not this boy really existed For me, fiction is at its best when the characters speak to something inside you and you can empathise with them an...

    A psychological drama billed as a psychological thriller, but definitely not a thriller in my opinion that s equal parts weird and mundane Gabriel Noone, a writer who has gained fame through a radio serialisation of his stories, is sent a copy of a harrowing memoir written by a young boy who has suffered serious sexual abuse and is dying of AIDS Moved by the story, he starts to talk to the boy, Pete, on the phone and the two develop a close relationship, seeing themselves as father and son A psychological drama billed as a psychological thriller, but definitely not a thriller in my opinion that s equal parts weird and mundane Gabriel Noone, a writer who has gained fame through a radio serialisation of his stories, is sent a copy of a harrowing memoir written by a young boy who has suffered serious sexual abuse and i...

    The Night Listener is a very good example of how a mystery novel can shine without creepy settings and dark characters in action packed storylines This is a deeply moving, quiet and very emotional mystery that builds its enchanting plot lines with subtlety It prevails by keeping the main focus on wonderfully depicted character interaction.There isn t all that much story to the novel in fact, but still it feels like a very quick, compact read This is mostly due to Maupin s talent as a storyt The Night Listener is a very good example of how a mystery novel can shine without creepy settings and dark characters in action packed storylines This is a deeply moving, quiet and very emotional mystery that builds its enchanting plot lines with subtlety It prevails by keeping the main focus on wonderfully depicted character interaction.There isn t all that much story to the novel in fact, but still it feels like a very quick, compact read This is mostly due to Maupin s talent as a storyteller, and his keen insight for character building The protagonist, radio playwright Gabriel Noone has a distinct alter ego feel to him, but he s complex and imperfec...

    Audiobook, read well by the author.I had not read any Maupin for years so long ago I have forgotten most of Tales of the City except that I mostly liked it.I really enjoyed this book until about 2 3 of the way through, when the plot though based on a purportedly true story, just took a silly turn and for that I d drop half a star Honestly the main character just behaved stupidly in a way, to me, only the well to do could Taking off impulsively on a car trip from S.F to the midwest in a snowy Audiobook, read well by the author.I had not read any Maupin for years so long ago I have forgotten most of Tales of the City except that I mostly liked it.I really enjoyed this book until about 2 3 of the way through, when the plot though based on a purportedly true story, just took a silly turn and for that I d drop half a star Honestly the main character just behaved stupidly in a way, to me, only the well to do could Taking off impulsively on a car trip from S.F to the midwest in a snowy winter to find why Pete did not answer his calls is something only a person with lots of time and money could do I have a friend who I have not been able to get in contact with for a couple of years but there is no way I could just take off go to where I last knew they were and track them down.And the whole scene with Donna in the diner and snow, jeesh Without givin...
