I loved the language used to make the story seem like a mob lifestyle. I felt like I was listening to a cartoon happening with a mix of mild violence.
I think the most memorable part for me was when Mac and Vince got into a quarrel about the money they were saving. This scene was very relatable, especially when you are in a situation where you cannot understand everything that is happening with your friend.
I loved the scene where Mac brought in all of the bullies to create an alliance. You got a sense of who everyone was and why they were a bully in the school. It was easy to relate at least one of the bully characters to a bully I have had in the past. The author showed how they were also human as well rather than portraying them as "the enemy".
It would probably one of Vince's grandma quotes. There were so many it is hard for me to pick one.
This book is great for adults and teenagers. It has comedy, empathy, and a world beyond what you remember of the playground.
Absolutely! I think that any one at any age can relate to this book. It's a great story about building character and how to build honor not by your actions or being strong but staying true to yourself and following your gut.
Hiccup was my favorite character. I admired how he stood calm in all situations even though he may have been afraid on the inside. He proved that true wit is more useful than strength.
I loved his accent and the different inflections he used in his voice. You could hear that he was really invested in the story and he kept you listening to every word.
Being a hero the hard way!
LOVED IT! Really a true pleasure to listen to! I am 24 years old and I think that this story is good for any one. There were a lot of great characters and the story ended differently than you typically expect from a tale of a legend.
Yes. I absolutely loved this book. The author provides so much detail about the different aspects of the circus that it is very easy for you to create it in your mind. I understood each character's purpose and enjoyed the outcome of the story. It was very well written and I loved the narrator.
I can't compare this book to another. It created a whole new world in my imagination. A lot of people compare the story to the movie "The Prestige".
My favorite scene was when Marco and Celia finally show each other their powers in person. You can imagine each illusion they create and this is when their relationship builds.
I grew attached to each character and enjoyed how each of the stories connected together to create the ending. The author gave enough information so that you would not forget when you jumped from one character plot to another.
LOVED IT! READ IT! I hope they make a movie!
EVERYTHING!!!!!!! I loved this book from the beginning to end. Charlie is a character that is easy to relate to. The journey he takes to learn about himself and the secrets that he runs from keep you listening. I have read the book and saw the movie as well. All three are awesome!
You enter the mind of why someone so quiet as Charlie, lives in his world to just be happy and please others. He puts himself before others and you learn how not everything is always what it seems.
I loved the car scene with his friends. You see Charlie finally let his guard down in this scene and learn to live in the moment and cherish it forever. It brought me back to some many times in high school where I have felt just like this with my friends.
I would take Charlie out. I would love to discuss books, home, and getting through high school with him.
Take a listen! It is not long and it will keep you on your toes until the very end!
Imagination, idealistic, wonderland.
I was really surprised by the Ari story. I loved the details and the crazy turn that the story took. Really Really loved it!
I loved the different variations of tones and the accents that each narrator brought to each story. It was easier to imagine with the different voices.
I would say the characters of Ziki and Urgon. People are always battling inside with the person of who they would like to be versus who they actually are. This story artistically shows the difference between the personalities and how a person can try to hide it, but someone will be there to unveil it at one point in your life.
Really great book! Loved that the stories were so imaginative and challenged me to think about how things end and how we portray ourselves to others.
The creative world the author built around Androids and Humanoids. Almost like taking a crazy look into the future if robots were to take over. Wonder what my Verizon Android phone can actually do!
He could have used simpler language and be less descriptive about each different plot. I got confused very easily and found myself having to go back in the story a lot to figure out what happened.
His voice was very robotic and slow. I had to listen on 3x just to not fall asleep. I commend him for his character voices, but I think he took it a little too serious with the robotic, monotone voice.
No. I think the book ended like it was supposed to. I don't think there is anything else that needs to be added.
I would say it ranks at the top 10. Its content and message are something that I refer to commonly.
The powerful message of positive thinking and how to apply it to new aspects of my life Just because I don't see the car I want, doesn't mean that I can't feel love for it or show it appreciation. It helps me to make it a focus to save for the car and I know once I get it, it will be very rewarding. You don't have to make your request a car. Her words help you focus on finding what you want and working to get it.
I love her accent to be honest. Her inflections in words are different and you can tell where she finds her passion in this teaching. You can hear her belief in the law of attraction. You can tell that she honestly wants the reader to succeed in achieving in life and getting the things that they deserve.
No. For this kind of book it is good to take breaks because then you can think about and apply the different lessons she speaks about.
Great sequel to "The Secret". The beginning is a little repetitive, but once you get into it you learn more about how to apply the law of attraction to different parts of your life.
Funny, Whimsical, Exciting
The description of the worlds of food and the love the children shared for their grandfather.
I liked their positive energy and tones used to keep the child spirit bright for this book.
When they said that everyone in the world should have food.
Great read! Took me back to my childhood.
I did not read the print version of this book but I really did enjoy the narration and sound effects. Robert Petkoff did an amazing job of represnting all the characters. I really enjoyed his voice, street accent, and female voice overs.
I really enjoyed the shark tank scene. I've never been to an aquarium so this scene really came to life for me with the water and echo effects.
I have never listened to his performances before. I am looking forward to exploring other books he has narrated.
I think I was most moved when he went to Poland and found out about his grandparents true past. The story really changed at this point and you could see how in some weird way he was always meant to be "Bad" as I call it.
Great Great Listen! It was like watching Boardwalk Empire and The Sopranos mixed with a little bit of General Hospital.
Listening to Tina Fey narrate her own stories was the most enjoyable experience. You could hear her accentuate each moment/ funny story and go back those places in her memory while adding a funny twist.
I would have liked her to spend a little bit more time on the relationship between her and her husband....but I could also understand why she chose to keep it private....maybe a fictionalized version of it would have been funny.
I would say the description of her father because I could literally imagine how he was such a strict man. I also enjoyed her description of her college personality as she was discovering her talents and herself.
No extreme reaction. I did enjoy her debunking of her photoshoot experience. I always thought getting photographed for a magazine was luxurious, but I enjoyed her reality check about how vain it really is.......and how it is all and illusion. Now every time I watch her Garnier commercial I will know that it probably was not an enjoyable experience for her.
If you love Tina Fey and her comedy this is the book for you.
