    Budo is lucky as imaginary friends go. He's been alive for more than five years, which is positively ancient in the world of imaginary friends. But Budo feels his age, and thinks constantly of the day when eight-year-old Max Delaney will stop believing in him. When that happens, Budo will disappear. Max is different from other children. Some people say that he has Asperger’s Syndrome, but most just say he’s "on the spectrum". None of this matters to Budo, who loves Max and is charged with protecting him from the class bully, from awkward situations in the cafeteria, and even in the bathroom stalls. But he can’t protect Max from everyone.

    What made the experience of listening to Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend the most enjoyable?

    Even tho this was "written" by a completely fictional character, you never get the impression that it isn't real.


    What other book might you compare Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend to and why?

    I'm not sure that I've EVER come across a book comparable to this book. Sure, I've read and listened to some other great books. It's just that none of them came from this perspective. :-)


    What about Matthew Brown’s performance did you like?

    Nothing about his narrative took away from the storyline. It just flowed as a good story should. His performance was "spot-on". You're never distracted by thoughts of how bad or how good the narrator is. It's after you've listened to a truely great performance that you can fully appreciate just how well the narrator did.


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

    "and you thought imaginary friends aren't real..."

    If this book ever makes it to the big screen, I will DEFINITLY be going to the theater. No waiting around for it to be out on DVD.


    Any additional comments?

    This book had humor as well as sadness in it but in the end, you come away from it with that warm, fuzzy feeling.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    I really enjoyed listening to this audible book. The story-telling was great, the narrators spot on. Actually helped make riding through Hurricane Irene and 24 hours without power almost painless. :)
