"Beyer's buoyant, boyish manner ensures that Sachar's witty novel, winner of both the Newbery Medal and the National Book Award, makes a smooth transition to audio." (Publishers Weekly)
I love how the storyteller tells the story with expression.There is nothing wrong with the storytelling and the performance.I love this book too!!!!!
I recommend everyone who has Audible to download this book!If you do not have Audible, you can still read the book or download the app.
This book was recommended by Audible for families. I had it in my wish list for this summer when I bring the grandkids up. But turns out I'm at my brother's. He's in a wheel chair. We listened together over two days and both enjoyed it. Wanted to give four and a half stars but didn't know how. Enjoy!
Disappointing story. My 8 year old didn't want to continue to listen after the 3rd chapter. Too much of the story is about curses and prison. Neither sci-fi nor believable. Dark and nonsensical book.
This is a fairy tale complete with a family curse, buried treasure and evil villains. And like all good fairy tales it has something true to say about courage, friendship, and love.
