I purchased this audiobook for my son to listen to on a long car ride since he was reading it for school and decided to put in on for everyone to hear. Wow! Everyone, my husband, daughter, son, and myself, loved it! We got really into the story and had a difficult time leaving the car before a chapter ended. We actually arrived home and continued listening in the car for another 30 minutes! The story was well-written and I was just as engaged as my kids were. I think the character development was very well-executed and the story talked about real-life issues and how kids really feel. My only issue (be it very minor) is I didn't care for the voice that the narrator gave Augie. It was a little annoying at first, but I got so into the story that it didn't matter after a while.
A wonderful read/listen about an adorable boy who doesn't let his mismanaged features get in his way of making friends and making the most of his fifth-grade adventures!
I love Wonder. I read the book, and wanted more, so I went for the Audio book. Auggie's narrator was AWFUL though. Why a girl? Why? WHY? I hate to leave bad reviews, but really?
For Auggie, anyone who doesn't talk like a tiny deranged woman. The others were fine.
Diana Steele was basically terrible as August, but the story is sweet. Great novel for middle readers.
every bit of this novel was compelling, real. the dialog never dragged, always brought out real human emotion, kept the action moving. fantastic listen.
