Have a renewed interest in books after falling in love with audio books. I am listening to all different genres and exploring different authors.
This book is so much more than Auggie's point of view. You get the perspective of others and I think that made the book so much more. It gives you a lot to think about.
This book was amazing. I laughed, I cried! This book gives an excellent perspective as to how we interpret circumstances and how when we limit transparency our relationships are surely affected. The main character in this book is in 5th grade so the target audience is our kids. This book however opens the doors for great conversations with our children about real life exposures, joys and struggles with family, school and friends. Highly recommend this book and am so happy to have read it!!!
Wonder should be required reading for every middle school student, teacher, and parent. The cruelties and kindness of human nature are on display in this book.
The narration of Wonder was terrific.
I can't say enough good things about this book. Highly recommended.
I don't know if I would recommend this to anyone. It's not bad, just a bit too straight forward for me
The narration of this book was superb, I could not have asked for a better book to start my son on audio books. We listened in the car instead of having whatever garbage would be playing on the pop radio that day, and we would then talk about the story at dinner or when we were just hanging out.
The overall morals and how the story brought up many topics that we could talk about with ease because he had something to relate them to, especially the feelings of others that could be different than him in any other way.
We loved how animated the narrators were and how easily we could tell who was talking by the voice. They were heartfelt and truly were in character.
This is a good story. We downloaded it to listen to as a family on a long car trip. The choice of narrator for August, the main character, is so perplexing. It is awful. It sounds exactly like Marge Siimpson, but with a lisp. I have no idea why this seemed to be a good choice for a book that has garnered so much public praise.
The performance of the other characters, later in the book, were good.
I felt angry that I had to listen to the baby-talk, strained voice of the narrator.
I wish I could get my money back from Audible and just read the book.
