Notes from the Midnight Driver | [Jordan Sonnenblick]

Notes from the Midnight Driver

“Alex Peter Gregory, you are a moron!” Laurie slammed her palms down on my desk and stomped her foot. I get a lot of that. One car crash. One measly little car crash. And suddenly, I’m some kind of convicted felon. My parents are getting divorced, my dad is shacking up with my third-grade teacher. I might be in love with a girl who could kill me with one finger, and now I’m sentenced to baby-sit some insane old guy. What else could possibly go wrong? This is the story of Alex Gregory, his guitar, his best gal pal Laurie, and the friendship of a lifetime that he never would have expected.

    Story
    "I gave up on this one pretty quick."

    The sample sounded cute. The book turns out to be thoroughly adolescent, mildly amusing, but mostly not. Our hero crashes his mother's car, knocking down a garden gnome, and hilarity does not ensue. There is a lot of talking with his platonic girlfriend, a courtroom proceeding in which he is sentenced to do some volunteer work at a nursing home, and extended conversations with Sol, the old Jewish guy who gives him what is meant to be a lot of funny, cute, annoying shtick, but really, once again, not. His parents are in the process of divorcing, and try to reconcile, and there is a lot of nervousness and palpitation about that. The young man can write a little, and this is not bad for a first attempt, but it's not great, or even all that good. Worth buying at the $5 sale? Probably not. Give it a skip.

    Story
    "Midnight Driver"

    I choose to listen, even though it didn't get great reviews. I was not disappointed. The story reminded me of the old Afterschool Specials. Kind of predictable, but not bad if you allow yourself to just go along for the ride. You know 10 minutes in that there will be a lesson to learn by the end of the story. That was OK too, I found myself chuckling and shaking my head throughout. All and all, kind of forgettable but not a bad way to spend your time.

    Story
    "I loved this book. I laughed & Cried"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have already recomended this to my friends.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Notes from the Midnight Driver?

    I love the total inablity of the young to understand the old at the start. I loved the understanding that developed and seeing the weath of knolage that was passed on.


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

    The reader was so good at the accents. I can never emagine the accents as well when I read on my own.

    Story
    "A TOUCHING STORY FOR LISTENERS OF ALL AGES"

    When I first started listening to this book, I was afraid it would be too juvenile and simplistic for me, an adult listener. However, I soon began to empathize with Alex as he struggles towards emotional maturity and discovers the importance of families and friendships. The quirky humour found throughout the story plays counterpoint to its poignancy. The reader delivers a perfect Yiddish accent, while at the same time authentically portraying the teenage voice of Alex. A touching and amusing story for listeners of all ages.
