    "A Must Read Book!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Trevor was my favorite character. I loved following him and how he discovered his feelings for Abby and how he dealt with the confusions of his life.


    What about Dan Bittner’s performance did you like?

    Dan Bittner bought the characters to life. I felt like I was going through life with them.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The Epilogue was excellent. Loved reading about how life turned out for Travis and Pigeon.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next book from this awesome writer.

    "His point of view"

    I listened to the first book twice. The first time was a while back but when the second book came out I wanted to reread the first one so it was fresh in my mind. I forgot how much I loved it the first time around. I love that each book is the same story from different perspectives. The connection between the characters is so intense and relatable. It made you want to know more. The second book really brought the story to closure.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Walking Disaster?

    I loved this whole book!! Beautiful Disaster was a great book, but this one adds so much to the story.


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

    I have not listened to Dan before and I was disappointed when I found out it was narrated by someone different than Beautiful Disaster. I was very surprised how much I Loved Dan in this book! He did a great job, he was a perfect choice for this book!

    "Riviting, emotional story!"
    What did you love best about Walking Disaster?

    Finally a story which give the other perspective of the other lead character. Loved reading "Beautiful Disaster" and getting into the mind of Abby. "Walking Disaster" really got into the mind of Travis and the angst he was going through in working out his relationship with Abby. With many romance novels, you only get a perspective of the women in the story...this was a riviting in that you get to follow Travis's journey in his self realization to love.


    What did you like best about this story?

    THe author Jamie McGuire kept the dialogue consistent with the first book. It was the thoughts behind the character which you had to grasp. I actually listened to both books "Beautiful Disaster" and "Walking Disaster" together, in order to remember the story and to recall what was going on with each character...it was intersting to understand each character's thoughts from scene to scene. As I read/listened to their story I was just as "frustrated" with their decisions as they were, but didn't give up on them. The characters of Shefly and America enriched the story and were provided some tension and comic relief at times.


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

    His male narration brought a reality to Travis Maddox voice. He was able to capture the character's pain in his voice, his emotion of rage, desperation, angst.


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

    This was one story that rivited me. I laughed at some of ther banter. The dialogue was quick witted at times. I was exasperated with their indecisions, cried with their pain of self realization, and tense at key points in the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend rereading/listening the first book "Beautiful Disaster" before reading/listening to "Walking Disaster" especially if you had to wait awhile for this second book to come out. Better yet, try listening to both books at the same time. Switching back and forth in the story. The dialogue is consistently the same but you get a different perspective of what Abby (Pidgion) and Travis are thinking. The narration of the female narrator- Emma Gavin in Beautiful Disaster in contrast to the male narrator Dan Bittner in "Walking Disaster" make for a richer emotional understanding of their story.

    "A good story can be told twice"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There are many passages which is exact the same as in book one. If you loved book one you will enjoy this: In a way I wish they had released this first since it is better for adults. The narrator does an amazingly good job. I knew what would happen next but the last part is a new addition. Credit proof if you got hocked on the characters in book one.


    What other book might you compare Walking Disaster to and why?

    " B.D
    " of course and " Love unexpected"


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

    This was the first.


    Was Walking Disaster worth the listening time?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I strongly dissliked the epilouge since the end could have been elebareted into an all-new storyline. Sometimes the characters you love the most evolves too fast.

    Story
    "A MUST HAVE companion to Beautiful Disaster!"

    I had read Beautiful Disaster several times before the audio came out. Once I had the audio I listened to that several times. I had fallen in Love with the story and characters from the very first read. So, when I heard Walking Disaster was coming out I was all on board and counting down. This book/audiobook is the same story but absolutely different at the same time. I loved finding out what exactly was going through Travis' head and knowing the male perspective during certain situations. I also delighted in knowing what was going on during scenes Abby wasn't around for. All the scenes between Travis, Shep and America just rounded out the whole story and gave you a better perspective on Travis' character.

    For those of you who haven't read the first book, I highly recommend reading Beautiful Disaster First. So, really quick, This book is about two people, Abby and Travis, who both have damaged pasts. The odds of them getting together and making it last are against them. Their hurricane love story takes you through a whirlwind of emotions and slams you into a wall or two during it's tumultuous ride.

    I have only two semi-negative comments. One, while Dan Bittner did an awesome job narrating, I still had a preconception of Travis' voice being a little more rough or tough; and during intense emotional times of the story, I felt his voice should have given more of that inner turmoil, on the brink of breaking kind of vibe. Second, I am going to be perfectly honest. Beautiful Disaster is still my favorite between the two and continues to be on my favorites list.

    With that being said, I loved this book and absolutely recommend it. Two thumbs up to Jamie McGuire. A definate must have companion to Beautiful Disaster!

    "very disappointed"

    The first time I read beautiful disaster l feel in love with this book. And I read it 8or 9 times I love the way the person read the book. And I could hardly wait till this book came out. I was very disappointed by the person reading it. It made the Travis curator sound so wimpy. It took away the Travis image I had. Very upsetting!!!!! I hated it so much I had to stop reading it for a couple of hours/ day's. I wonder if Jamie McGuire actually wrote this book because there is a lot of conflicting story's in this book.... I hated the middle of this book...... the very beginning and the end of this book was awesome.
