This is a sweet, comfort read if you don't mind paranoid, insecure geek meets Greek god and just can't accept that he is worthy of attention. On the surface, I love the concept, but not so much in this execution. The best part of this book was the narrator, who is fabulous and really took what I thought was a mediocre story and brought it to a new level. He also took Arthur, a minor character, and stole the story with his interpretation of an overweight drag queen with a heart of gold. Stanley's insecurities became a bit much at about the 50% mark and Roger was just too good. So it was more like a Cinderfella fairy tale than any realistic read. It is fine for what it is.

Where does Serenading Stanley rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Way up there...
What was one of the most memorable moments of Serenading Stanley?
When they saved Sylvia.
What does Tyler Stevens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I didn't hear Arthur's voice in my head, but Tyler's rendition is perfect. He does a wonderful job telling this story.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Many of Stanley's experiences mirrored my own. Not all of them good. They took me back to some very vulnerable times that I would not want to repeat. I certainly laughed out loud but teared up some, too.
Any additional comments?
John Inman has quickly become one of my favorite authors and I hope that his entire catalog of stories become available through Audible. With good narrators of course.
