    "Sachar: Great writer, lousy performer"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wayside School is Falling Down to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely not.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Louis Sachar’s performances?

    Never


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

    The book makes me laugh out loud. The audiobook loses all of the endearing appeal.


    Any additional comments?

    I normally love books read by the author, but this is just so bad. It's almost as if Sachar doesn't understand what is so funny about his hilarious writing. I have loved the book since childhood, and I thought it would be fun to listen to it again. He is not a performer. He cannot act. He cannot do voices. It's about as fun as listening to the iTunes Terms and Agreements. Boring.

    "Great book"

    My son and daughter listened to this book when we went on a road trip to the Grand Canyon! I even listened a little. It was a funny and entertaining story. I recommend this book for kids ages 8 - 12

    "Great listen with the kids!"

    Hilarious book that the whole family enjoyed. (Kids 8 and 10.) Kids had both already read the book, but loved listening to the stories anyway. Mom and I laughed so hard!

    "My kids love this book!"

    A very funny book read extremely well by the author. My 7 & 10 yr olds love it. Great for the car - the chapters are like little stories in themselves.

    Story
    "Don't listen on long car trips"
    Would you try another book from the author and/or Louis Sachar?

    Who is reading it?? The picture says Read by Lidnel Wilson, the product page says Narrated by Louis Sachar.This is the most uninspired, monotonous, boring, put-you-to-sleep reading I have heard to date. I cannot even follow the story, my brain goes numb.

    I listen 20 min at a time while I am driving my 8 year old son to school and back, and I can't wait for this book to be over. On a long trip I would surely fall asleep to this reader's "performance".

    My son asked for this book because his teacher read a Wayside School story during a class, and he said it was fun. After listening to this horrible performance, even he agrees that it is super boring. He said that his teacher read it with expression, and this man is reading like he is in a coma.

    There are a couple of humorous parts that I was able to concentrate on, e.g. the teacher during a music class was asking a student to speak louder, but kids playing instruments thought that "louder" is addressed to them, so they play louder, so the teacher is asking the student to speak louder, and so on in circles. However, the humor was completely drained by the monotonous performance.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    If I get to ending before I die from boredom, I am buying myself a steak dinner at Morton's as a reward.


    What didn’t you like about Louis Sachar’s performance?

    Louis Sachar should never ever ever perform anything ever again.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Most of my brain cells were bored to death by the monotonous reader.


    Any additional comments?

    Can I have my money back, please?
