Think "The Iliad" - The Neddiad is a funny and engaging tale about the journey of a boy and his eccentric family. Entertaining and clever - this was a family favorite of ours this summer (children 7 & 9, girl and boy). We all agreed that Mr. Pinkwater's narration added to the ambience of the story. The audio quality was excellent.
Everything. The natural flow of the story, dialog, characters - it's brilliant.
Melvin, the shaman. Although, the Fins were quite exceptional as well. And Neddi of course was brilliant.
Too many to count.
Laugh out loud many times. Just adored it.
The author is a brilliant narrator. Excellently done, loved every minute. Wanted it to keep going forever.
An enthralling story of heroic adventure. I kept reaching to put more time on my sleep timer. Bet it's a while before I find another I like as well.
