    Story

    As an adult who works extensively with developmentally and physically disabled children and adults... I applaud this book. Simply but beautifully told account of Auggie, who with his facial anomalies leaves the cocoon of homeschooling to attend 5th grade. Well rounded point of views help the reader to understand how this disability affects friends, siblings, parents and teachers. Uplifting, clean read with a few sad spots and some really funny parts too. Nicely done!

    August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school - until now. He’s about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and if you’ve ever been the new kid, then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, despite appearances?R. J. Palacio has crafted an uplifting novel full of wonderfully realistic family interactions, lively school scenes, and writing that shines with spare emotional power.

  • "The Giver stands alone... Messenger..."

    Story

    Messenger is actually the end to Gathering Blue and ties the three books together. You need to have read the other two for it to make sense. The Giver to me is the classic and although I am glad to have read the other two, they do not reach as deep or as high for me. Gathering Blue felt unfinished, the end is here in Messenger... but Messenger is short and leaves lots and lots of loose ends unsatisfied for me as well. That said Lois is an incrediable writer and I love her themes, mind and creativty.

    Six years earlier, Matty had come to Village as a scrappy and devious little boy. Back then, he liked to call himself "the Fiercest of the Fierce." But since that time, Matty has grown almost into a man under the care of Seer, a blind man whose special sight had earned him the name. Now Matty hopes that he will soon be given his true name, and he hopes it will be Messenger. But strange changes are taking place in Village.

    Story

    Can't even begin to explain why I purchased a child's book, that I didn't choose to have my children read in the 80's when it came out. Perhaps just for the fun of listening to Kate Winslet... her narration is spot-on perfect. I (an adult) had a lot of fun listening to this quirky little tale centered around the precocious 6 year old Matilda... but I would still be very cautious about offering to younger children, sensitive children, or ones that might impulsively imitate her behavior or the language of the adults in the book. Cast includes Matilda's abusive, dishonest and neglectful parents, a horribly abusive school principle (throwing children, locking them in a nail studded locker for hours, lots of verbal abuse) and a lovely school teacher and librarian. Safety issues bothered me, like Matilda walking to library daily without parents knowing, going to the "lovely teacher's" home without anyone knowing. Plot also includes "revenge pranks" that could have seriously hurt someone (like putting peroxide into father's hair tonic). Everyone's kids are different, just worth a preview and assessment.

    "The Trunchbull" is no match for Matilda! Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!

RaisinNut's greatest hits:
  • Number the Stars

    "People of all ages will enjoy this book."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Number the Stars is the story of two little girls whose friendship is put to the test by the Nazi invasion of Denmark. Although the protagonists in this story are children, people of all ages will enjoy this book. Historical fiction at its finest, it captures both the facts and the feelings of the era. You will want to weep for the divided families and children forced to grow up too quickly. Your pulse will quicken every time the Nazis knock on the door. You will glimpse their fading humanity. You will rejoice at the small victories the characters achieve.

    I wish this book had been read by author Lois Lowry, since writers usually read their books better than anyone else. Reader Blair Brown is a nice consolation prize, though. Her reading of the book is smooth and graceful.

    ADDED BONUS: At the end of the story there is a discussion about the historical facts behind this fictional account of the Nazi invasion. Not to be missed!

    If you love historical fiction, you will thoroughly enjoy this book. If you love young adult literature, you will love this book. If you just plain love a good story, well told, you will LOVE this book. And at just under three hours, it's a relatively quick listen. I highly recommend it.

    004.00…

    At the beginning of this audiobook, I wondered if something was wrong with the recording. I asked myself, “Why are the chapters formatted this way?” I quickly realized they were formatted like numbers on a scale, and this was an appropriate choice for a book about a teenage girl with an eating disorder.

    “Just eat!” her loved ones demand.

    But for Lia, it isn’t that simple. She is broken, and no one seems skilled enough to put her pieces back together. Her mother, a surgeon, treats her like a case study. Her father, newly married, is too busy. And her best friend Cassie, who also struggles with an eating disorder, has just been found dead. The most helpful person in the story seems to be Elijah, a young drifter who works at the hotel where Cassie died. Lia tells herself to stay strong by staying empty. Her weight keeps dropping.

    107.00

    100.00

    096.00

    In the end it is Elijah who most effectively pushes Lia toward life.

    Author Laurie Halse Anderson writes about an eating disorder with the intimacy of someone who has experienced one. After a little while you realize that there are two ways the story could go. Lia could get better. Or she could die.

    Narrator Jeannie Stith brings Lia, in all of her brokenness, to life. Her voice conveys every feeling that Lia experiences – guilt, sadness, anger, loss, hunger, hunger, hunger. And then,
    in the end, hope.

    “Wintergirls” is a stunning piece of young adult fiction. It is raw and real. It isn’t pretty. It is, in fact, rather ugly. And painful. But if you’ve ever loved someone with an eating disorder, or someone with a touch of madness, you should listen to this book. It will open up your heart even while it is breaking it.

  • Shiver

    "Refreshing point of view."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Shiver is a young adult novel about two teenagers - Sam and Grace - who fall in love. The problem is, one (or both?) happens to be a werewolf.

    Perhaps the most refreshing part of this novel is that it departs from the typical YA first person point of view. Instead, it switches back and forth between the points of view of both protagonists. This allows for deeper character development that is sometimes lost in first person point of view narrative, where you only connect intimately with one character. I am a fan.

    The narration is also well done. Jenna Lamia portrays a teenage girl brilliantly, as usual. David LeDoux sounds a bit too mature to be teenage Sam, but he has a voice charged with raw emotion so all is forgiven.

    At the end of the listen, you "get to know" Maggie Stiefvater through a few scripted vignettes read by the author herself. She talks about her writing process and the sequel to Shiver. If you are interested in writing you will enjoy this; however, since it is scripted it feels a bit unnatural and rehearsed.

    Overall, this is a good listening experience. If you enjoy YA fiction, you will enjoy this novel. If you aspire to write YA fiction, you should listen to this novel for its departure from first person point of view.

    SPECIAL NOTE: Get ready for a lot of kissing / nuzzling scenes. It starts to get tedious. Ironically, one thing Maggie Stiefvater reveals at the end of the listen is that she has always hated writing kissing scenes. I guess she got over it!

Had she been carried off in the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, or any of the other giants - rather than the BFG - she would have soon become breakfast. When Sophie hears that the giants are flush-bunking off to England to swollomp a few nice little chiddlers, she decides she must stop them once and for all. And the BFG is going to help her!

    In Who's in Charge, Stella gets a lesson in responsibility when she volunteers to watch her best friend's dog, Bella, for a few days. The only problem with this plan is that Stella didn’t ask her mother for permission. With new baby Marco at home, Stella's mom already has her hands full. But Grandma agrees it's good for Stella to have some responsibility as she's getting older. It looks as though Stella has things under control. It's only for a few days - what could go wrong?
