The audiobook is filled with universal characters and rip-roaring adventures, including a hilarious spring break trip to Key West, Florida, involving a gay artist, goats, fleas, and…well, you get the picture. Anyone who's old enough to remember the Age of Aquarius, drive-in movies, and network TV should appreciate, no, make that "dig" Escaping Innocence: A Story of Awakening.

Too Close for Comfort...
What made the experience of listening to Escaping Innocence the most enjoyable?
Escaping Innocence brought back vivid memories of my youth...embarrassment, shame, guilt, lust, as well as some of the greatest times of my life. The events depicted in this tale of coming-of-age in the sixties were universal, and I'm sure anyone of that era would easily relate to them. Mr. Kohler's narration sparkled with an energy reminiscent of Jean Sheppard, one of the great storytellers of all time (A Christmas Story). His excellent voice talent added greatly to this already wonderful story. I highly recommend this to all baby boomers!
What was one of the most memorable moments of Escaping Innocence?
I think the section of the book that most touched me was the relationship between the main character, David Justin, and his black college classmates.
Which scene was your favorite?
The scene in Captain Tony's bar.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Laugh, laugh, laugh! Also, highly emotion was a scene involving 'Nam.
Any additional comments?
Looking forward to more from this talented author.

I really didn't like this book.The storyline of a boy coming of age in the sixties seemed like a good one until you run into one too many 'hard ons' and 'wet dreams'.The narrator was good.I was given this book for free for an honest review.
