Wow so well written from the stand point of a teen aged boy as well as a new young wolf.
The reading was so smooth, I was able to get engrossed in the book without realizing someone else was involved, and I love narrators that can let the book shine as it is.
I laughed a lot during this book, having just raised teen boys it was so reflective of the way I have seen them trip over their tongues as well as their big feet. And the scene where he is getting ready to go to his girl friends for Easter dinner could not have been funnier especially when he tried on his clothes.
I can not thank the author and narrator enough for the ability to enjoy this book, listening to my books is such an important part of my life these days.
This is listed as a young adult novel, but I (a 72-year-old) enjoyed it thoroughly. The story of Cody, whose life seems to be ruined when he discovers he's a werewolf at the age of sixteen, is full of twists and surprises, yet it flows smoothly. The action is fast-paced and the characters, including the minor ones of Grandpa Earl and Ef the jock, are well-rounded and believable. Cody and Brittany are sympathetic and realistic teenagers. Smolen makes their paranormal adventures seem real. Danny Randerson's reading is also excellent. He uses different accents, intonations and timbres to make the characters come to life. I started listening to it in my car and didn't want the drive to end because I'd have to pause the book until I got inside. Highly recommended.
This was an excellent listen. The pace was steady and the narration was perfect. It was a different take on the standard werewolf story, a little funny, a little sad and with enough danger to keep it interesting.
