    When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact. On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun - but no Katherines.

    Where does An Abundance of Katherines rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's difficult to compare audiobooks, even more so than the books themselves. So many things go into an audiobook. It's not just the writing, but it's the performance and the production as well. I happen to like John Green as a writer, and have both read his books and listened to some of the audiobooks. This particular narrator seems to do his work justice.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Woodman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think he is a very good narrator and captures the author's voice well. As a matter of fact, I chose to read and listen to this book before John Green's "Paper Towns" solely because I like this narrator. I'm going to read "Paper Towns" instead of listen to it because the narrator doesn't seem to capture what I feel is Green's tone.

    Most people think 15-year-old Charlie is a freak. But then seniors Patrick and his beautiful stepsister Sam take Charlie under their wings and introduce him to their eclectic, open-minded, hard-partying friends. It is from these older kids that Charlie learns to live and love.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend the book, but read it, don't listen.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator sounded like he was asthmatic and much older. I don't think you have to have a young person read a teenage book...I've listened to many that have had older narrators or even the author, but this one seemed not to fit. It sounded as if he had smoked one too many packs of cigarettes. Especially strange since the character is even "younger" in many ways than his years and says, "I cried," a lot. It was jarring.
