Ungifted | [Gordon Korman]

Ungifted

Teens and pre-teens flock to any new offering from New York Times best-selling author Gordon Korman. Told through multiple viewpoints, Ungifted follows Donovan Curtis through his year at a magnet school for gifted and talented kids. Thanks to an administrative foul-up, the decidedly mediocre student Donovan finds himself enrolled in the Academy of Scholastic Distinction. Out of place and out of luck, Donovan joins the robotics team. And while he learns a few lessons from his gifted classmates, he also teaches a few of his own.

    Story
    "Very funny"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ungifted to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, I only listened to the audio!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ungifted?

    The opening was hilarious, total Korman.


    Did the narrators do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes - my only critiques are: I wish more narrators of young characters actually sounded young. And also: The narrator who was cast as Kate seemed totally wrong. She sounded really posh, whereas Kate came across much more brassy to me.


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

    I probably could have, if I had time just to sit and listen to audiobooks.


    Any additional comments?

    Very cute.

    Story
    "Gordan Korman does it again!"
    If you could sum up Ungifted in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, smart, light-hearted


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chloe. She is super smart but yet relatable enough to average people to not be a social outcast. Good in between character to convey both sides of the story.


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

    Additional vividness to the characters.


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

    When Donavan was taking the test and realized that someone cared for him enough to try to keep him in the school.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book that will keep you hooked till the end
