    Living with his little brother, Fudge, makes Peter Hatcher feel like a fourth grade nothing. Whether Fudge is throwing a temper tantrum in a shoe store, smearing mashed potatoes on the walls at Hamburger Heaven, or scribbling all over Peter's homework, he's never far from trouble. He's a two-year-old terror who gets away with everything, and Peter's had enough.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Judy Blume?

    The author's read is terrible, constantly jumping between speaking so low she can't be understood, to reading so loud that the audio distorts. She also does not have a lot of range in the tone of her reading.

  • Ready Player One

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Julie W. Capell says: "I’m sorry I waited so long to read this book."
    "Awful, don't bother."

    What was most disappointing about Ernest Cline???s story?

    Barely nostalgic, the book seems to be more a compilation of the texts on the backs of game packaging than an original story. Very lazy writing, predictable plot and unoriginal ending.


    Any additional comments?

    Do not waste your credits on this one, instead, Daemon by Daniel Suarez is a much better book, featuring an original plot and much more credible situation.
