    What made the experience of listening to It's Kind of a Funny Story the most enjoyable?

    The quirky characters involved in interaction with the main character and how he sees them.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really liked the professor and the other older black woman with no teeth.. they had a lot of character and provided for some very comedic scenes.


    Which character – as performed by Robert Fass – was your favorite?

    My favorite was Jimmy...Robert Fass's voice of Jimmy's character was hilarious and very believable.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book certainly made me laugh, I think that the narration (Robert Fass) played a large role in that. An excellent audio book to me is one that provides a very detailed description of the scene, characters, and if the narrator is able to portray all of the characters in different ways and voices as to bring life to them and create a picture in my mind.

    It's been three years since the devastating accident... three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever. Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock-star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future - and each other.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Where She Went to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, I did not read the print version, but I can imagine it would be better due to Dan Bittner's excellent performance.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the perspective of Alex's life and where he ended up.


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

    Yes, I love Dan Bittner, he is the perfect young-adult male voice. "Walking Disaster" is also an excellent performance of his but I think "Where She Went" has been my favorite.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed a little, but I think my overall reaction was to just become entirely engaged in the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to this book was as entertaining as watching a movie.
