Would you consider the audio edition of Can You Hear the Music? to be better than the print version?

Yes! Audiobooks are always better than print books. Audiobooks off things like accents, proper pronunciations and loads of excitement in all the right places! Listening to an audiobook is like listening to a movie! it rocks!!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Andy is my favorite character. I liked almost all the people in the book, but it was Andy who made the story! Andy saved Corey and made a new life for her. Andy turned everyday into an adventure. It was Andy who had all the friends to help Corey & it was Andy who took Corey to Angelique & changed Corey's life forever! Andy also taught Corey to love everyone & be kind & generous even if you have next to nothing!

Have you listened to any of Steven Cooper’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't think I have listened to this narrator before. I enjoyed his reading very much.

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

When Andy died, I was floored. All I could think was "Oh no!" . Poor Corey girl as Andy would say.

Any additional comments?

I felt it all the way to my heart! Steven Cooper, the narrator, you did one hell of a fine job narrating this tale! I loved Andy's scratchy voice!!! I loved all the voices.
