    What made the experience of listening to The Perks of Being a Wallflower the most enjoyable?

    An extraordinary narration for an extraordinary story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The obvious answer would have to be Sam, simply because I relate to her. However to answer honestly, I would say Charlie. His character was enthralling and endearing. Very well-developed. He is special and unique, and absolutely *Infinite*.


    Which character – as performed by Noah Galvin – was your favorite?

    Charlie, of course. Sheer perfection.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    We Are Infinite.


    Any additional comments?

    Every once in a while, a story will be told that will be life-changing and incredibly profound. This is one of those stories.Perks of Being a Wallflower is such a deeply affecting novel. It will haunt with you for weeks after reading it, and you will be compelled to reread it over and over again. The characters are well thought out, the story is intensely intimate, engrossing, and wondrous.

    In January 2003, Nick Sparks and his brother Micah set off on a three-week trip around the world. It was to mark a milestone in their lives, for at 35 and 36, respectively, they were now the only surviving members of their family. As Nick and Micah travel the globe, the intimate story of their tragic family legacy unfolds in the details of the untimely deaths of their parents and only sister.

    If you could sum up Three Weeks with My Brother in three words, what would they be?

    Reconnecting. Kinship. Tragedy.
    In one word--Life.


    Have you listened to any of Henry Leyva’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't. But the performance was outstanding. He really understood the voice of the narration, and was unafraid to go to the places that the story went.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.
    This was a book that I personally wanted to savor. The story was rich and emotional, and even though it was a page turner, I wanted to take breaks to absorb the story that was being told to me. Every chapter, every event that was depicted I wanted to remember and experience and relate to. To me this book was meant to be experienced.
