As luck would have it, Gully soon snags a job with a talent agent and even finds himself a new boyfriend. There’s just one catch: Gulliver knows this budding relationship could get him in a lot of trouble. And inevitably, it does just that.
The whole mess blows up in his face, leading to an onslaught of catastrophes that leaves him in a tragic and seemingly hopeless situation beneath the skyscrapers. But Gulliver is tougher than he realizes and is determined to prove, once and for all, that he has what it takes to make it in New York.
By turns exciting, sad, and hysterically funny, Gulliver Takes Manhattan is a candid tale of one man’s adventures in the greatest city in the world.

This book had me hooked from the moment that plane landed in JFK. I would have liked it to be a little longer,what happened with gully? is he still working in the bar? Are Todd and the crew still about or did he mess things up again? I need more!

Narrator 10, story...maybe a 6??
Cole Ferguson was amazing; unfortunately for me, the story got more unbelievable the further it went on. Gully and the rest of the guys seemed to do nothing but get drunk and have sex...usually at the same time. Yes, it was funny to start off with, but rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat...it was sooo boring, and frankly irresponsible, given that STD's and HIV are on the rise. 3.5 stars.
This is the sort of story, written by a gay guy, that gives other gay guys a bad name IMHO. It does them no favours whatsoever, and surely fans the flames of the straight male's belief that gay guys DO just have sex wherever, whenever and with whoever [although I think jealousy is sometimes involved too ;)]. Will not be listening to the sequel, although Cole Ferguson I WILL be looking out for.

If you could sum up Gulliver Takes Manhattan in three words, what would they be?
Dirty, dirty dirty!
Would you recommend Gulliver Takes Manhattan to your friends? Why or why not?
Yes. The book is really explicit at time, but is very tongue and cheek in a way that keeps you listening.
Which scene was your favorite?
The scene rigt before he gets his internet "job"
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Welll...several. Listen and you will know what I mean.
Any additional comments?
The fraternity brother "Bro" thing was not believable, but the characters became a littl more real by the end of the book. This was a good listen, funny and unexpectedly erotic. DO NOT listen to this at work! Looking forward to the next book.

Gulliver Takes Manhattan was super entertaining and one of those stories that just seems to be enhanced by the narrator (in this case Cole Ferguson).
I listened to this audio book over a week during my daily commute and actually looked forward to getting in my car each morning so that I could listen to the next installment of Gulliver's adventures.
Gulliver is running away from his life in LA,escaping the city where his two-timing, now ex-boyfriend lives. He moves to the other side of the country to share an apartment in New York with his college friend Todd. Todd is a party organiser in the gay nightclub scene with all the right connections and his friendship ensures that Gulliver has access to all the best parties and lots of free drinks!
The story follows Gulliver's party life, his flings, his relationships with Todd's group of friends. There is time spent with Gulliver and his new job and the complexities that result from him falling for one of his clients. There are weekends away, one night stands and fights. Gulliver goes from on top of the world one minutes, to desperately sad and alone the next. He moves from coffee shop employee, to talent scout to a very surprising new occupation! It's certainly not short on action!
According to his bio, Justin Luke Zirilli is Head Promoter of a New York-Based gay nightlife events company, so he must know his stuff and this certainly comes through in the story!
I highly recommend this audio book - great story, wonderful characters and good pace. It ends with a happy-for-now but there is a sequel that I am looking forward to reading.
