Would you consider the audio edition of Dodgeball High to be better than the print version?
Joe's narration made the book funny, entertaining and interesting. I think the print version would be less appealing for me.
What does Joe Hempel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Joe does a great job with narration. Strong, emphatic voice with great cadence.
Any additional comments?

Imagine being sent to a high school where you only get admitted if your parents are psychotic killers. Every class is about dodgeball and how it changed the world. Every game can result in your death. Every ball could be covered in razors, filled with explosives or who knows what. A little too much of sexual explicitness for listening to with my kids. That being said the rest of it was a trip. Well written and well narrated. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

The premise of a school completely focused on frequently lethal dodgeball is unusual, to say the least! This story is imaginatively written, with interesting ideas, and well performed by Joe Hempel. I did enjoy listening to it, but it doesn't really go anywhere, though - maybe I'm asking too much from this? The main character, Justin, starts out as an embarrassingly clueless jerk with the self awareness of an amoeba... and remains that way throughout the entire book. I was hoping that he might learn something from his experiences, or that Dodie might smack some sense into him, but nope, he is still just as irritating by the end of the story.
Give this book a try if you like surreal and creative writing.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.<br/><br/>this story firmly falls in to the bizarro category of writing, goofy, childish, surreal and sometimes snort out loud funny, sometimes the narrative is abit hard to follow but ultimately it is a enjoyable easy listen, joe hempels narration adds alot to this book i believe, his tone and inflections help sculpt the internal monologue of the protagonist nicely and he portrays the character well.<br/><br/>i wouldn't normally listen to book such as this but i'm glad i gave it a chance and can honestly say i enjoyed it.<br/>
