Innovative and hilarious
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Definitely. Lovers of musicals and/or absurd comedies will love it.
What other book might you compare Scoring Bertram Wiggly to and why?
I honestly cannot think of a book to compare it to! It's so unique, and it works best as an audiobook. Being the only character in a musical who questions being in a musical is a hilarious premise.
Which scene was your favorite?
I love when he walks down the street and can't avoid the orchestral accompaniment.
Any additional comments?
Michael Gilboe is a terrific narrator, especially for this absurdist story.

Scoring Bertram Wiggley
This was a wonderful read!I was awed by Michael Bilboes narration and that he could keep up with the story! Bertram Wiggley is a sweet man,keeps to himself most of the time.He is informed that he has an 'inheritance' which turns out to be a 'Niece' who moves in with him.He LOVES her,then he decides to marry her,without her consent he develops this plan all along our story.Mr Wiggley is appalled one day that the local school hires a band,to play out every whim of the town and everyone is to sing.The intrigue,confusion,etc caused by this is hilarious! Mr Wiggleys luck is not good,give it a go to see what happens!
While I liked this book,I thought there were gaps that would have fleshed out the story.Mike Venditti did a great job narrating this story.
This audiobook was provided to me at no cost for a fair and honest review
