The book was enjoyable up until Bruno ends up in New York. That whole section of the book was bizarrely disjointed from the rest of the narrative and really didn't fit in at all. On balance, it was enjoyable, but it ran a bit long given the long rambling in NY at the end.
This book had my laughing hysterically in my car on my way to work. It is really enjoyable and the narration is absolutely perfect for the book.
You couldn't have found a more perfect narrator for this series. I wish it wasn't abridged, but the story still holds up. My boys really enjoyed it (as did my husband and I).
This was like hearing a beautiful painting. The prose in this is vivid that you can visualize, hear, and taste every scene. Highly recommend. The narration is very good.
This book was a hoot. It had a good story in itself, but also let me remember a whole bunch of things from my childhood that I had forgotten. Also, it was enjoyable to hear the narrator refer to himself in the text.
I probably could have figured this out myself if I read more of the reviews ahead of time. But from the book description I thought this might be more of a look into a distopian society...but it was really just a Stephen King style horror story.
Interesting story, fast moving
The narrator really added some depth to the story, I really enjoyed her voice and the emotion she put into the story. I hope they continue to use her as the rest of the books are published
