    Joey Pigza can't sit still. He can't pay attention, he can't follow the rules, and he can't help it -- especially when his meds aren't working. Joey's had problems ever since he was born, problems just like his dad and grandma have. And whether he's wreaking havoc on a class trip or swallowing his house key, Joey's problems are getting worse. In fact, his behavior is so off the wall that his teachers are threatening to send him to the special-ed center downtown.

    Todd says: "Thought-provoking children's story"
    "I can relate w/Joey, its hard being treated diff."

    Story
    Would you listen to Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key again? Why?

    yes, its got a lot of insight about overactive imaginations. I think a lot of adults are still unaware of the complexity of these disorders & the amount of time, patience, & constant parenting needed to help a child succeed in life with them.

    I would like my 2 boys to hear it with me this time, BUT I'm also concerned about putting anymore ideas in their already overactive minds.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Joey of course, because of his constant desire to do his best.


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

    no but hope to soon!


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, keep'em coming!

    Earth has been invaded by a species that takes over the minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact. But Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away.

    Keith says: "Great story in a genre only touched upon before"
    "Excellent narrators makes for an incredible story"
    Overall

    I have only purchased two audiobook collections. Honestly my first experience was not as expected, there were no voice changes throughout the reading, I was very dissappointed.
    When I heard The Host being narrated by Kate Reading, it blew my mind. It was as if the characters were all around thru her reading.
    Thank you, whoever it was that chose Kate Reading to be the narrator. Excellent choice for an excellent book.
