Overall, the "audio play" was enjoyable. However, there were times when trying to follow which character was speaking was quite confusing. Since I have read the book in the past, I was a bit disappointed by the length and how much it was abridged.
I would have preferred an unabridged book just read by a single performer. Unfortunately that was not available.
A little bit long, dragged at some times, especially at the beginning. Also seemed a bit repetitive in a few sections, but very good narration.
I really enjoy books that are "stories" and this one is perfect. A peek at mental illness in the 60's and the building of "families". Great narration, I could picture all the scenes in my mind and laughed out loud at some of the characters, who are so real.
I really enjoy all the Chris Grabenstein books. This series, although geared toward teens is thoroughly entertaining for the entire family, we have a teenager and a nine year old. We listen during vacation car trips. Good story lines, with a touch of scariness for the younger family members.
At the beginning of the story, the narrator's pitch was irritating in the voice given to Zack, but it improved about halfway through the book.
This is a wonderful example of crafted storytelling. It is woven slowly and methodically like a fine tapestry. It is an enjoyable journey with a well crafted mystery to make it even more interesting.
This was a great beach read. Predictable but entertaining. Narrator did a good job with the voices.
I kinda of knew what I was buying but hoped for the best. The narrator does a good job so that is a plus. Standard romantic comedy, would probably make a good movie- but drags as a book,
I bought this book during one of the $4.95 sales. Figured I'd experiment with a new author at a low price. I sure am glad I did. Enjoyed the narrators voice, the book had a good sense of humor and a good plot twist. I enjoyed it so much I have bought the rest of the books in the series.
