Damaged youth.

Roam - Erik Therme

Why am I finding this audiobook so hard to review? I finished it over an hour ago and haven't been able to put pen to paper to express my feelings. I'm thinking it must be down to the characters, they all seemed so lost and sad, dragged down by their dismal pasts. I guess I'm feeling 'there but for the grace of God....'

 

During the passing of one night we meet Sarah and Matt, broken down in her car on her 21st birthday, Kevin...and Scott. All living their lives in the middle of the night, somewhere in a run-down area of America. All lost souls in their own way. 

A night that will have a profound effect on all four characters, for better or worse.

Finally, day breaks and the story draws to a close.

 

Almost a five star book, just a bit confusing early on, as to who was who and why the characters had suddenly switched in the narrative.

 

Finally, my review would not be complete without mentioning the excellent narration by Joe Hempel, who let me forget completely that I was listening to him at all.
