    Story
    Where does The House of the Scorpion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The House of Scorpions was one of the best audiobooks I've listened to; the narrator was excellent! His accents were superb!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Matt, the main character, was my favorite character. He has such a unique story, that learning about what would happen to him in the future made the story compelling. My 14-year-old daughter and I also loved Tam Lin and Celia.


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

    I haven't listened to his narrations before this one, but if I see his name on other audiobooks, it will factor into my decision about whether or not to buy the book - in that book's favor!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had several extreme reactions to this book - mostly shock, horror, sadness, and respect. This book definitely brought more emotions to the surface than most others.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was so unique. I went through a phase of reading dystopian fiction and got a little burned out because a lot of the ideas seemed to be repeated with a spin. This was entirely new to me and made me think about something new, which I love. My daughter and I listen to audiobooks while we drive, and both of us would look forward to a car ride.

    This audiobook follows eigth-grader "Antsy" Bonano as he looks back on three accidental, but beneficial friendships with a few interesting characters, including the often ignored Calvin Schwa.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Schwa Was Here to be better than the print version?

    I think the print version of The Schwa was here would be equally enjoyable to the audio version. I did love that the author narrated his own book!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Probably what I enjoyed best about the book was how the main character, Antsy grows as a person.


    What does Neal Shusterman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Shusterman's emphasis and accent were great.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I wouldn't want to read this entire book in one sitting, but preferred to stop and think about the book. I like listening to audiobooks while I drive and clean up around the house, and this one was entertaining enough to make me look forward to a long drive and even to cleaning up the kitchen.
