Ranks as one of the most listened to in our household, adults and children.
Augie, for sure. He's honest, resilient and funny.
Too many to name. Some scenes are painful but the characters and readers make the story very listenable. The hero of this story is just so darn human and like able.
Probably something from the great quotes they use to begin each section.
Have listened to this story multiple times and will many more.
I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.
This is a very positive story with heart and love and friendship, family and community, fear and courage, hugs and kisses, dogs, and an uplifting ending. It is heartwarming, yet ultimately quite hollow. Stories that deeply move people, and make a real difference, must possess balance, with realistic fear or pain or loss to make the positive aspects truly powerful. This is a written for a young audience, but that does not justify saccharin. Kids can appreciate, and actually need, this balance.
There was one brief interlude by the character Miranda that borders on some realistic balance. I wish the rest of the book had the real heart glimpsed in these few pages.
I had hoped this would be a powerful, moving, and transformative story; instead it is a simplistic positive story.
Wonder is an entertaining and amazing story. It is performed beautifully in this audio production. I would highly recommend it for readers young and old!
I liked it and it is a good story the narrator had a scratchy voice but I liked it on a scale of 1-10 1 being the worst book ever and 10 being the best book in the world I would rate it a 10
Reading this with my nine-year-old daughter there are plenty of moments but we got to talk about life's larger questions and what it means to be a good person.
Yes, I loved the story and each character's perspective was a treat.
August is really the most inspiring character in any of my recent listens.
The narration was a treat in itself.
