I have not listened to many audiobooks, but the format suits this novel very well.
It was read well, with just a few instances where it seemed emphasis was placed on the wrong word, or pauses in the wrong place. Over all, well done though; the reader gives the characters distinctive voices, and a slight southern accent, but never to the point that it's annoying.
I normally tend to read genre fiction, including horror, sci-fi and fantasy, so this wasn't really in my wheelhouse. I was pleasantly surpised though... this novel manages to be funny, touching, and surprising, while saying a lot about friendship, family, and growing up.
