What the Critics Say

"Bodett's short stories are perfect for the audio format, and his matching, low-key, folksy style is equally addictive." (AudioFile)

    "I LOVE Tom Bodett"

    Excellent character development, storyline & wry delivery. Take your time to ease into his crazy world at The End of the Road. You'll be glad ya did. There's even a laugh or two in it for ya.

    I value intelligent stories with characters I can relate to. I can appreciate good prose, but a captivating plot is way more important.

    "Cute, short, nice stories"

    A fantastic listen for a family car trip. Fun and wholesome entertainment, spoken by a true master storyteller.

    I listened to these as a kid, and again as an adult. I enjoyed them both times.
