      Some tidbits about meI turned down a scholarship to Miskatonic University because I heard of the high rate of incidents against the student population.I briefly worked for Omni Consumer Products in their Marketing Department Great benefits, nice cafeteria, sadly too prone to executive whim.Last year I stayed at the noted Mauna Pele resort in Hawaii The accommodations were impressive but my traveling companion disappeared soon after wanting to attend a pig roast.I ve slept with one minor porn star and with a guy who later became one.And I happen to have written some fanfic that inspired the memorable holodeck scene in Star Trek Hidden Frontiers episode Vigil

    1. A good novel about teenagers is hard to find The ones written by precocious teenage authors are likely to seem raw around the edges, and the ones written by adults are likely to sound patronizing or formula driven Vintage is that rare thing, an interesting novel about teenagers as complex human beings with emotional depth and an awareness of their place in history These kids are all right, Goth style and all.The seventeen year old male narrator knows that his parents would never accept his sexua [...]

    2. Generally, ghost stories tend to distress rather than soothe me however, Steve Berman s ghost story, Vintage was an exception His ghosts and the paranormal events connected with them, were introduced so nonchalantly that their existence seemed almost like a normal, everyday occurrence It was interesting how Steve Berman used clothing to link past and present Each costume had its own story to tell and provided clues to help solve the story s mysteries Vintage is also the first story I ve read in [...]

    3. Steve Berman does a lot of anthologies, but I really like his own writing and this young adult book has a good mix of character, tone and plot In fact, other than the age of the characters, it doesn t have that consciously young adult tone that some otherwise good YA books do I keep hoping for a sequel, but no luck so far.

    4. Audio Interesting book Loved the narration I literally jumped out of my seat a few times while listening I ll look for from this author and definitely the narrator.

    5. This book felt strangely both too long and too short but that didn t average out to just right There were a lot of side stories that felt completely unneeded Like, why do we need the lesbian couple And over, why do we have to witness their fight And why does the main character have to go to Philly with one of the lesbians and her parents Completely superfluous to the actual plot.That being said, the main plot was well told Just somehow felt too fast, like could have been put into the main plot [...]

    6. I picked up Vintage when reading an article about the lack of good gay lesbian young adult fiction This is a great example of the genre The narrator of Vintage is a teen whose personal life is in an upset Remember all the angsty poetry Don t lie I know you ve written some After being outed as gay to his parents and half his hometown, he finds refuge in a creepy little town in New Jersey where he makes friends with a girl interested in all things macabre Their favorite pastime is dressing up and [...]

    7. To say that VINTAGE stole all my attention over the last two days would be understating My Kobo and I were inseparable, sneaking a read on breaks and bus rides, at breakfast and dinner, and finally, the last few pages before bed.I loved this.It s not often I feel lucky enough to find a young adult book where the protagonist is a well written gay teen, and it s even less often that teen isn t your typical example The goth, vintage clothes loving voice in this book was a delight Having run away fr [...]

    8. 4.5 starsWhile searching for a unique YA book I stumbled upon Vintage A Ghost Story I decided to take a chance with no clue of what I was getting into I am so glad I did This book could never be classified as of the same While the characters are all in their teens and they have the same issues that most teenagers deal with, the MC in this story is faced with things most aren t one being a ghost named Josh Wyle A ghost who became a legend in the area after he was struck and killed by a car on a [...]

    9. 4.5 stars In a small town, a lonely teen walking along a highway one autumn evening meets the boy of his dreams, a boy who happens to have died decades ago and haunts the road Reading that blurb, I thought the angst love story will happen between the hero and the ghost Until further along the story, the relationship turns to sinister, as Josh the ghost seems to be jealous of our unnamed hero we only know his last name, Vesely , and was able to do harm I thought the story was really ENCHANTING O [...]

    10. This was a really well done book in my opinion I enjoyed the characters and their quirks The mystery is well done and I didn t see some of it coming and that is always a good indication of a well thought out plot and characters.I found really nothing wrong with the exception to the font size jumping all around Editing seemed to miss that.I look forward to reading of Mr Berman s books

    11. This book is a few years old and has been re released by Lethe Press, receiving glowing accolades from almost every corner As a fan of Berman s writing, I expected Vintage to delight and enthrall while offering questions and possibilities as his stories inevitably do Thankfully Vintage offered all I was expecting and , bringing a new challenge in writing a review for a story that has been so thoroughly covered and lauded So if anything I have to offer has already been said, hopefully the very l [...]

    12. 3.5 stars A strong 1st person voice and a cast of utterly non stereotypical characters made this an easy story to sink into As the narrator unnamed, which I never noticed while reading the book discovers his ability to see and communicate with ghosts, the story takes on a creepy edge one scene actually frightened me I m a sissy that way, so YMMV I found the first half of the book noticeably stronger than the second half the latter seemed a bit disjointed somehow, not as polished thus the loss of [...]

    13. A superb YA ghost story and an excellent YA gay romance novel rolled into one My only complaint is that I would have loved to,live in this world longer could have gone on another hundred pages with no complain from me Highly recommended.

    14. From our review at iloveyafiction vintage by steve bIf, like me, you were one of those misguided and angsty teens who liked to dye their hair and your wardrobe consisted of thrift store t shirts along with ripped black Chuck Taylors with lots of safety pins, then this book is for you Heck, I ll take it a step further If you were a disaffected teen just hoping to fit in and let s face it, pretty much all teenagers fall into this category unless they re, like, that one magical teen who didn t get [...]

    15. So apparently I m the only human being in the world who didn t like this book It had rave reviews, which is why I picked it up, and I loved the synopsis, so I was totally expecting a good read First of all, let me confess that I would sell my soul for slash fanfiction Specifically, for Harry Potter Draco Malfoy or Severus Snape Harry Potter fanfiction Since I got into the ships HP DM was my OTP until SS HP became my guilty pleasure , I ve found that I can t read or see het relationships without [...]

    16. This audio book was very pleasant to listen to, may be I would have not given it 4 stars if I read it on print ,but the audio made it very Delightful to listen to, The narrator is one of those rare great ones.This was Creepy at times and a bit romantic, but very nostalgic Good story to listen to like a radio show of the 1950 s

    17. I was a little bit skeptical at first about this book, then I found out that my favorite audiobook performer, Jason Frazier, did the audiobook, and I had to give it a try Let me say, that the plot is a little bit unexpected with some twists in it, and I enjoyed it though out my commutes to work and back this week Highly recommended for those interested in the genre, but get the audiobook format, you won t regret it.

    18. I rated this 2 stars for mostly one reason I have no idea who the target audience is I m going to break it down into pros and cons.Pros The characters are fairly realistic though I thought the main character was a little too compliant with most things , and the plot, overall, fairly interesting Nothing groundbreaking here It s a typical coming out story filled with conveniently place gay boys and ghosts for the protagonist to get involved with and come to terms Cons In my opinion, the book was o [...]

    19. This was a very classic ghost story love story I loved how LGBTQA it was The writing is clear and easy to read and the story has definite character and plot arcs It hits all the right notes as the main character learns about the difference between love and attraction.

    20. I really enjoyed this book The story was a fresh take on a ghost story and I loved the way the writing gave me chills My only wish Is that we had been given time with the main character and his love interest However, I kept listening and could not wait to find out what would happen My main complaint would be that the book ended too quickly because I wanted to stay on this journey I listened to this book on Audible Once again, Jason Frazier works his magic and takes what would be a creepy book a [...]

    21. 3.8 StarsYA is usually hit or miss with mebut I liked the YA aspects of this story quite a bit It was the ghosty medium MC part of the plot that kinda fell flat.ough I can appreciate the not so subtle message warning against desiring the unattainable, the seemingly perfect, when what you really want and need can be right in front of you.I also liked the side characters than I did protagonist or his love interest who are like 17 18 and 14 15 respectivelybut since the book has very little sexual [...]

    22. I read this novel quite a while back on one of my summer trips to California and I absolutely loved it The story is really unique and the characters are very well rounded I loved the angsty atmosphere of the story I can t remember all the details since it was such a while ago but I believe it is about a boy who comes across a ghost on a walk home I might be wrong But anyhow, the story was fast paced and the writing style was very lyrical Great read I want from this author

    23. Originally, I was looking for something new to listen to and having heard another narration by Mr Frazier, I decided to give this a go It was a fantastic idea, the internal monologue was amazing as his voice was soft and gentle as a whisper All the diverse voices were very good, specially the little girl ghost Definitely scary and thus perfect for the mood of the book The steamy parts were few but perfect through Frazier s sexy voice.

    24. Overall book rating 3Audio Book Jason Frazier 4Book Cover 2Interesting little titbit Not something I d usually read, seeing as it s a very tame version of romance, but I enjoyed it It was really interesting.And as usual Jason Frazier showed us how talented he is yet again.

    25. I would have given it five stars, but it was really too short and I SOOOO WANTED to see of the happily ever after with Second Mike.

    26. This is really of a paranormal ghost story than an erotic romance It s also YA There s no sex, lots of MM kissing.

    27. A sweet and eerie young adult novel that captures the angst of being a teen, feeling awkward, knowing you are different, and wondering if anyone will ever love you The young protagonist falls for a seductive ghost, and finds his life imperiled Good friends help keep him safe, he solves a mystery, and decides he had been so preoccupied with wanting love, he neglected to ask himself what love wanted back from him The plot device of a ghostly first love operates as an extended metaphor for how want [...]
