I listened to this story with my son, who has LD and has difficulty reading books in print, but loves audio books. He thought this was the best book he's ever read and profoundly connected with the characters. He was able to analyze the book for a school project and found it to be easier because he understood the book so well.
My son loved the part where Freak and Max take on the bullies and then later Killer Kane.
Eldon Henson's narration was exactly what we wanted for this story. He was perfect as Max and absolutely brought the story alive for my son.
No, because we wanted to talk about it after a few chapters.
I'd recommend following up with the movie, "The Mighty" and talk about how the book and then compare the two.
