    Bear Like Me is a satirical look at the gay bear community It s a little dated as a contemporary piece but the humor translates for the most part if you re looking for something very light and heavy on the obvious puns The ending is ridiculous and completely over the top but that s mostly the point It s meant to be outrageous and unbelievable with one gag after the next The characters are decent and likable to a point but none stand out very much In the end this is a fun, easy book to read but n [...]

    I m a fan of audiobooks and finding and titles from Lethe Bear Bones and Bold Strokes has been a real joy to add some quality audiobooks to my two plus hours of commute every day Bear Like Me works on many levels on the surface, this is a fun and light story of a guy in way over his head a gay clone twink type who is unjustly fired from his job at a magazine is left twisting in the wind, and his friend convinces him to go undercover into the bear community and write a book about the experience [...]

    Pretty good humorous gay fiction about a writer, fired from a trendy gay magazine, who decides to go undercover into the gay bear culture in order to gather material for a book While the humor of this book just didn t quite work for me, I believe it will for other readers particularly those familiar with real life bear culture.

    While I enjoyed the obvious affection the author has for the bear community, I did not care for a lot of the back biting, conniving characters that populated the novel While I don t doubt that many such men exist, I really don t want to read about them.The ending seemed a little rushed and contrived as well, going from the protagonist s living hell to top of the world in scant minutes.Still, it s good to see hirsute gay men showing up in fiction.

    This was a fun book to read Being a bear I can understand the world this book inhibits I was glad to come across this book at a gay bookstore a few years ago.

    I m a fan of bear erotica and bearish romances when I find them, so Bear Like Me by Jonathan Cohen, an amusing, light tale about a man who becomes part of the bear community, through let s say the back door, is right up my alley.Cohen weaves this bearish story around Peter Mallory, a journalist and self proclaimed twink who becomes obsessed with getting revenge after he s fired from his job at Phag magazine In the meantime he needs to make a living and at his friend Mac s suggestion Peter decide [...]

    An entertaining satirical romp about gay bear culture and media commercialization of subcultures, if you will Peter, our hapless doltish leader, is inspired to transform from twink to bear for his own book The plot is split between his attempt to infiltrate the bear community and his obsessive need for revenge on his former boss at Phag magazine The latter plot line became a bit tiresome, but provides the umm, climax The secondary characters were great barometers for exactly how out of step Pete [...]

    The book is a quick and mostly a delightful read, if you enjoy reading about gay bears The humor is campy if one is allowed to be campy in a bear world and fun In a world where many books are overly wordy and in need of editing, this book needs to bulk up a bit, like its hero I found myself wanting a little in depth character writing given the identity crisis the hero was going through The overall feel was a made for TV script that had been fleshed out a bit But I hope that Jonathan Cohen conti [...]

    I enjoyed the silly romp with the bears While the book feels a bit dated, I enjoyed it enough to hope there is a sequel someday.
