I originally picked the book up at the library, but then found it on an audible sale and I'm glad I did. The different narrators did a great job on each character and it added an element to the story that I don't think I could have achieved by reading it out loud.
This book sparked so many great conversations on how to treat others and how we think we are being kind, but still unintentionally hurting them. I'm sure we will be referring to Auggie for a long time to come!
As a literature teacher, it is often difficult to find engaging YA books that aren't simply watered-down adult books with things a teacher would may not want to discuss. This is the first book in a long time that I am really excited about teaching!
This was the first time read for this author. Although it was an easy read it was also a tough read. I would highly recommend it to anyone. I will be recommending it to all of my fellow readers because the subject of bullying comes up over and over and over again. This book tactfully deals with it in an honest way at a grade 5 level. It would be a great book to have in all schools.
No - found narration extremely annoying and almost gave up listening.
Another narrator - a "regular" voice, without the "sickly" sound
this is a great book for kids and adults alike. there are some good things that we should all remember here. my 5th grader recomended I read it and I am glad I did.
Well developed characters and themes of acceptance and kindness. My only hesitation to giving more stars for performance is that the reader adopted a voice that was distracting from the story. I think it would have been better to have done the audio with an actual fifth grade boy reader
