    Story
    "An outstanding review of an American classic!"
    Where does More Adventures of the Great Brain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    My favorite fiction audio book, just beating out it's predecessor "The Great Brain". Most of the audio books that I listen to are non-fiction, but I do not think it a fair comparison between fiction and non-fiction.


    What other book might you compare More Adventures of the Great Brain to and why?

    The Great Brain


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

    He vocalizes the characters in a way that brings you into the story... even when he is the 'narrator', he has it similar enough to JD (the character that is telling the story of the Great Brain), but distinct enough to make it clear that he is acting as the narrator.


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

    The Great Brain series were the books that I used to practice my reading on... it was my favorite series growing up, so much of my reaction to the book was sentimental and very pleased at how the narrator captured the story and characters so well.


    Any additional comments?

    I really hope that the rest of the Great Brain series will be made available at Audible... preferably with the same narrator.
