Publisher's Summary

Robert Cavanaugh, a traveling salesman, wakes up in his bed to find himself transformed into a large insect. He looks around his room, which appears normal, and decides to go back to sleep to forget about what has happened. He attempts to roll over, only to discover that he cannot due to his new body - he is stuck on his hard, convex back. He tries to scratch an itch on his stomach, but when he touches himself with one of his many new legs, he is disgusted. What will happen when his parents and young sister discover his transformation?

"I've never heard so much emotion in an audiobook. His Boston accent hooked me. The story was heartbreaking but his voice was a pure joy." (the audiobook worm)

Feeling the Emotional Pain & Confusion - Gripping!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

From the first paragraph, this is a story that captures your attention. A human waking up as a bug and trying to figure out his new life while still concerning for his family and job - its very entertaining, and sad at times, to experience the evolution.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The family structure, while in some regards very banal, was easy to connect to. Then, to imagine what one might do in a similar situation having a beloved family member 'change' is interesting to ponder.

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

Ron's narration, with a Boston accent none the less, brings emotion and drama to the story. I like the depiction of the supervisor and the expecting demands of the job. The depiction was easy to connect and relate to.

Was Change worth the listening time?

For those that like a creative short(er) story - yes.

I loved both the book and the narration

What did you love best about Change?

I liked the flow of the book, and the unexpected interpretation

Which scene was your favorite?

The apple throwing scene had great action.

If you could take any character from Change out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Trina, the sister. She is very lively, and I would like to hear her play the violin.

Any additional comments?

great comedic timing
