No, once was nice, but also enough.
It confronts you with your views and makes you think about the stereotypes you have.
It was nice that there were 2 narrators for the 2 main characters. However, the girl was a bit overdramatic every now and then (Syan Blake) and the boy was a bit difficult to understand here and there (Paul Chequer).
The ending: unexpected!
Listen to the sample first before you buy. If you like the narrators, this is definitely a story worth listening to.
Yes I certainly would since this is such a wonderful story, read in a fantastic way.
No other books. It is unique in that it is a frame story, in which the main story is most important and focused on.
The main character Angel is definitely the most loveable character, although the way Angel approaches all the other characters makes them all special in their own way.
Angel, eating her cakes of course.
Listen to this wonderful story with sadness and tragedy, but also love and happiness in it.
Skippy Dies not only is a great story (hilarious and sad at the same time), but was even more enjoyable due to the excellent narration. All the characters, with their different accents, were really brought to life by Patrick Moy.
All the conversations amongst the boys who are in the midst of their puberty. Hilarious!
No I haven't, but sure would like to after this one.
It made me laugh heaps of times, although it was extremely sad at other times.
A great listen. Not only because of the above-mentioned things, but also because of the critical attitude of the author towards traditional catholic boarding schools like this one, without becoming moralistic.
Great novel and Vance is also a great reader, but the audio quality is very poor. It is old and there constantly is noise in the background. Also, you often hear an echo.
Wonderful audiobook. Not only the novel is great, but it was read in a wonderful way by Charlotte Parry. Parry makes it very easy to relate to the main character. It doesn't happen very often to me, but I actually shed some tears during the final chapter.
