Kudos to Full Cast Audio
The first time I read David Levithan's "Boy Meets Boy," I was immediately drawn in by his stealthful command of language and how effortlessly he gave the voices of his characters meter and life.
Like many people who fear seeing a favorite book turned into a movie, I approached this recording with some hesitation. It's one thing for a narrator to simply read a book. It's another for actors to take on the roles of the characters. How would this match up with how I heard the characters in my head?
I was IN NO WAY disappointed. The performers did a remarkable job of capturing the nuances of the characters (or, at least how I had imagined them). I also like the interspersal of music which seemed so organic to the material.
This production is well worth a listen and I'll certainly be looking for other Full Cast Audio books in the future.

A wonderful and touching book
Boy Meets Boy is a sweet, funny and moving story set in the Sophmore year of the protagonist, Paul. Paul likes Noah and Noah likes Paul, but everything conspires to try and keep the two apart.
David Levithan has written a story that manages, in the most pleasing way to paint a picture of the world as it should be.
The recording on Audible is a "full cast" production with different actors for each character; the recoding is extremely well done and engaging.
This is a wonderful book that will appeal to both young and old. I loved and I highly recommend it.
