    "An Intense Love Story from Travis's side."
    What did you love best about Walking Disaster?

    I loved how it was Travis's time to tell this love story from his view. To be able to see and feel the other person version is very unique in a love story series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the ending in the book, it was a modern " ....and they lived happily ever after."


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

    This is the first book narrated by Dan Bittner but I will be searching for others from him.


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

    I laughed, I cried and I swore at Abby's character for being so blind and stupid at times.

    If you could sum up Walking Disaster in three words, what would they be?

    Intense. Deep. Dysfunctional.


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

    The opening of the book with Travis as a child talking to his mom before she died.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    Story
    "I wish more authors would do this."

    When I bought this book and Beautiful Disaster I had treated myself to three other books. Well a week later I have yet to hear the others meanwhile I've listed to BD 3x & I'm on the 5th time around with WD. It's amazing how the second book that covers Travis' point of view could actually be better than the first. Countless times while listening to a book with my favorite couple the author chooses one point of view to go over and not the other. But I want to know what the other half is going through while the author is talking about...let's say the main character's pain. You feel the whole experience of the love & lost, happiness & pain. And in Walking Disaster the ending is one of the sweetest one I've ever heard. The narrator Dan Bittner does an outstanding job. So much so he brought me to tears a few times. Each book could stand on their own but so so worth getting them both.
    Beautiful Disaster & Walking Disaster have quickly become 2 of my all time favorite book. Find out why.

    Loved the original Beautiful Disaster Abby's story

    Nothing to compare it to


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Great love story where two people with a past rose above it all and got the happy ending they deserved.

    Any additional comments?

    Great story of girl meets the local bad boys and falls head over heels for him. The first book had me hooked and I was so excited about this one. This book actually recounts almost all of the same events in the first book but from the male character, Travis Maddox, point of view. We get an in depth look into his mind to understand the events that occurred in the first book. I've listened to other books that try to do the same concept and fail, but this book does the best job.

    "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.
