    • The most brilliant book of 2018
    • Have you ever read a fictional story and totally forgotten about its fictional nature halfway through? The story sounds so familiar to you and you can relate to it given that you have experienced a lot of the story either first hand or vicariously through a close friend's story. That was my experience while listening to the audiobook Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo. This story is wonderfully vivid and heartfelt. It is written in verse and eloquently performed by the author herself. I loved all of it. —Jessica, Audible Listener

    • Failing is awesome!
    • Maybe it was fate that Chris dropped this book right as I was experiencing intense failure? I'd like to think so because he explains things in such a way that makes you celebrate your losses. Crazy, right? You don't have to be a die hard Gethard fan to really get into the book, either. The only thing I knew about him at the time was that he was a comedian. Great! Well, consider me a fan now. This book is like your best friend giving you a really amazing pep talk. Definitely worth it. —Melissa, Audible Listener

    • I'm actually sad right now. Not from the ending but because it's over! I search all the time for books that get me as engrossed as this one did. Beautifully written. just the right amount of suspense and the performance was brilliant. she managed to make each character sound unique and she used several different accents without it sounding overdone. This is one that leaves me thinking about it after the fact. I would love to see this as a movie. —Andrea A., Audible Listener
