KEVIN T. Collins: A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, Kevin T. Collins began his career on the stage at the ripe old age of six, performing throughout his childhood and adolescence across the Bay Area in theaters such as Theatreworks in Palo Alto and San Jose Civic Light Opera, now the American Musical Theater of San Jose. He received numerous awards for Drama and Singing throughout Middle School, Junior High and High School, including AMT’s Best Actor award for his portrayal of Groucho Marx in A Day in Hollywood, A Night in the Ukraine, and two Best Musical wins, for A Day in Hollywood, and The King and I(in which he played the King).
Woods’ story is intriguing. I enjoyed the backstory and world building, although I did feel like I was missing some things with this novel. I do wish there had been a little more explanation at the beginning of the novel, but overall I appreciate the characters and how deep their feelings for each other are. They felt realistic with their interactions and fights/loving scenes. I wonder how part 2 will pan out with the ending of this one 🙂 Giving it a 4.5/5 stars!
Collins is a good narrator. His tone and pacing makes sense for the novel. Good emoting as well! No audio blips that I could tell so I’m giving it a 5/5 stars.
