Swim the Fly | [Don Calame]

Swim the Fly

Matt Gratton and his two best friends, Sean and Coop, always set themselves a summer-time goal. This year’s? To see a real-live naked girl for the first time. As far as Matt is concerned, they’d have better luck finding the lost city of Atlantis. But seeing a girl in the buff starts to seem like child’s play compared to the other summertime goal Matt sets for himself: to swim the 100-yard butterfly (the hardest stroke known to God or man) in order to impress Kelly West, the hot new girl. So what if he can’t manage a single lap, let alone four?

    Story
    "Fun listen"
    What made the experience of listening to Swim the Fly the most enjoyable?

    This is such a funny book! All of the characters are enjoyable, and the narration of the different characters makes it even better. It is laugh-out-loud hilarious, and you can empathise with all the situations that teenage boys get into.


    What other book might you compare Swim the Fly to and why?

    'Carter Finally Gets It' by Brent Crawford, which is also narrated by Nick Podehl. This is also a book about teenage boys in high school, and the troubles (and fun) as they lurch through various problems and develop life skills as they go.


    What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?

    Nick really brings the characters to life. He is fantastic at narrating teenage boys, and I love his accent for Ulf (spelling may be wrong - hard to know how a name is spelled when you only hear it!). He really throws himself into the narration with passion and flair


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

    Not that I recall - all the stand-out moments were humourous.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is really funny, but Nick Podehl's narration brings it to life and makes it even better. It is just what I imagine it would be like to be in the head of a teenage boy
