Publisher's Summary

In the small mountain town of Amorea, it's stretching toward autumn of 1954. The memories of a world at war are fading in the face of a prosperous future. Doors are left unlocked at night, and neighbors are always there to give each other a helping hand.
The people here know certain things as fact:
Amorea is the best little town there is.
The only good commie is a dead commie.
The Women's Club of Amorea runs the town with an immaculately gloved fist.
And bookstore owner Mike Frazier loves that boy down at the diner, Sean Mellgard. Why they haven't gotten their acts together is anybody's guess. It may be the world's longest courtship, but no one can deny the way they look at each other.
Slow and steady wins the race, or so they say.
But something's wrong with Mike. He hears voices in his house late at night. There are shadows crawling along the walls and great clouds of birds overhead that only he can see.
Something's happening in Amorea. And Mike will do whatever he can to keep the man he loves.

Interesting concept / nice romance!

If you could sum up Murmuration in three words, what would they be?

Good book - took a while to work out what was going on as the start was very odd - someone appears next to a town with no memory nor idea how he got there... but good. A good listen! Contains scientists spouting nonsense but I liked the overall idea.

Liked the narration, not sure about the story...

I'm in a bit of a quandary. Kirt did a great job with the narration [loved all the different voices] but for me, the story didn't flow smoothly....one minute you were in Mike's head, and then boom...you were in Greg's. This was a classic mind-f**k [scuse my language] of a story, with an unconventional romance, and I liked the analogy of the starlings and this story being controlled chaos. Hands up, I was completely lost until I finally understood what was going on...rather like Homer Simpson [but without the drool of course]...

This is a complex, highly imaginative and intense story...full concentration needed, although entirely believable IMHO. Who knows whether it has already happened in RL?? I can only say that unlike Wolfsong which I LOVED, I only liked this one. I certainly wasn't expecting that shocker at the end though....it went against everything we 'thought' we knew about Mike Frazier, which I suppose was TJ's point. You can never know a person entirely, no matter how much you think you do. 4 stars.
