Publisher's Summary

Michael Buckley is a New York Times best-selling author, having scored fans far and wide for his Sisters Grimm series and popular TV shows.

There’s no doubt about it: These kids are nerds. Awkward, unpopular, uncool as uncool can be—and yet, there’s something about these “nerds” that nobody else knows. These dweebs are actually superspies who use their dorky skills to battle the evil Hyena and other villainous baddies.

Humorous Story for Kids; Excellent Narrator

My 11 year old son loved this book -- found it funny and engrossing. I think he listened to it in just a couple of sittings, and was begging for the sequel.

Johnny Heller is a fabulous narrator of kids' books. I've enjoyed listening to him on many titles.

I'm always looking for books that I will enjoy as much as my sons, and this was the only respect in which this one fell short. I enjoyed it enough (certainly not irritating in any way), but found my attention wandering. If you are only buying this for a teen or tween to listen to, then I would have no reservations.

I'm missing something

I love the Sisters Grimm stories but this one isn't drawing me in like the others. Is it the latitude/longitude at each chapter? Is it the annoying sarcasm where the listener must do something to get clearance to go to the next section? I'm not really sure. Maybe I'm not nerdy enough.

My overall vote is EH. I'm not going on to the next book.

What an adventure

Where does NERDS rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is one of the best books my seven year old twins have listened to.

What was one of the most memorable moments of NERDS?

There are a few memorable parts but my son listened to it over again after listening to it once.

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

He has a good voice that is not annoying.

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

Not really

Any additional comments?

This a book that can be listened to over and over because it is so filled with adventure. My kids had me buy the next one.
