Great book for readers into sports, science, and business.
This book cannot be compared to no other.
Narrator was a bit robotic at times. However, he made the parts with lots of medical terminology easier to get through.
This was definitely not a story that had me bored or falling asleep midsentence. The author writes a vivid memoir of the tragic loss of her family in the 2004 Sri Lanka tsunami. In the memoir, the author's husband is an English man so the narrator's English accent was appropriate and went well with the telling of the story. As much as there are some dark moments for the author, it is warming to see how she deals with these adversities and manages to bounce back.
Liked the poem "Divorce."
It should be noted that the audio has 53 poems while Collins' book contains well over a 100 poems. That said, the selection here is great just wished it carried all the poems the book has.
Also, if you are trying to read along with the book then it could get a bit tedious since the poems on the audio are not in the same order in the book, so be prepared for lots of flipping back and forth between the table of contents then for the page number.
I'd be interested in trying another book by the author but this one here was hard for me to finish.
I love science fiction, Greek mythology, and fantasy books. While there are instances of those genres in this book, it still failed to capture my interest. The narrator made this interesting.
I would've given up on this book at the century mark but the narrator was intriguing and kept me listening to the end.
What a difference a good narrated book can make on whether you finish a read or not.
Understanding how the title connects to the plot.
Jiko showing Nao about superpower.
I enjoyed how the author performs the French character, Benoit, in the story. My least favorite character was Ruth--she whined way too much.
I enjoyed just about every single word in this book. It's heart warming, moving, funny. The characters sound like real life kids. The references to pop culture also lend to making this book quite unique. I even love the art on the book jacket which was what first drew me to this book.
Auggie's fifth grade weekend outdoor trip-- now that was a good scene.
I loved Jack's narration the most. His Brooklyn accent fit his character.
This book made me laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time.
Every middle school child should read this. Had I read this at 12, it would've had a deep effect on me.
This was my first time reading Animal Farm and I must say with the narration, it made for a memorable read. I enjoyed narration parts of Boxer, Squealed, and Napoleon.
I loved the narration part for mighty Boxer, the most.
My favorite moments from the audio were the chanting of the animals and the various anthems they came up with.
The audio narration added to the story, especially that of Magic Gourd.
Favorite scene is when Magic Gourd sticks up and tries to protect Violet as she is beaten by Perpetual.
not for the weak
If the narrator sounded less like a robot and more human, even his words ran together.
Monotonous dull performance by the narrator made it distracting to read along with.
The plot is great and lots of historical information on Pablo Escobar
The "I said, he said" started to get too redundant and annoyed my reading.
Campbell finding out Helga's true identity.
mostly too slow and monotonous.
Fine the way it is.
