    unspeakable

    I am at a loss for words. For me the story is so masterfully told, that all the emotions, or the emotion, would be lost in someone else's hand. All the emotions are so well reigned in that it becomes tangible and makes the tale so very true.
    A story worth reading and purchasing; it exposes the personal pains that individuals go through because of the selfishness of persons and the engrained mindset of a community.

    ~from my nook simple, horrible time punctuating with this thing

    "Listening to Dust by Brandon Shire was a very sad fiction


    "Listening to Dust by Brandon Shire was a very sad fiction for me. I don't read many gay books however, this title caught my interest and I am glad I did read it. The novel was definitely one that was of "love, hate, loss, passion, compassion and much pain." The author was excellent at telling this story that will grab you from the very beginning till the end. I found that as a read this novel, I was left believing that this really happens in real life. You will be left wanting more if there could be any more....WoW!


    In the novel..."Listening to Dust" you will find two young from different backgrounds...that are brought together and then torn apart. With Stephen his parents had been murdered and he meets Dustin who was a drunk American soldier with a troubled pass... and love is found by these two men, but is torn away due to the fact that Dustin has to go back home to see to his younger brother.


    How this all of this is played out is a work of art by this author ... after a year Stephens finally comes to America in search of Dustin...and he wasn't prepared to what he found...Was it too late? Now, you will have to pick up this excellent read and find out the conclusion and don't be surprised just how it all turns out.... because "nothing is perfect, not even love."


    I found "Listening to Dust" was a excellent read that I would recommend.

    tear enducing, sore throat creating, powerful love stry. i just

    tear enducing, sore throat creating, powerful love stry.
    i just COULD NOT PUT THIS DOWN!!!!!
    writing . . .great. concise and emotional. sucked me into the story by the end of the first page.

    characters . . .again, well done. both the leads and the supporting characters were all well done. tragic, believable. even the unlikeable characters are done well.

    story arc . . .heart wrenching. life can be tragic. sometimes love does not conquer all, it cannot fix everything. if you are looking for a happy go lucky story, this is NOT it . . .if you are looking for a beautifully written story, one that will have you rethinking what it means to love in all its forms. if you want to consider how society impacts who we are and how we love, then this IS the story for you. Mr. Shire has made me a big fan . . .big fan.
