Moving. Sad. Eventually Hopeful

Where does The Fifteenth of June rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Fifteenth of June is outside my comfort zone of usual reading / listening. It isn't an easy listen. The protagonist, Drew, isn't easy to like, yet I identified with him. I understand the impact of an event that has the power to negatively impact an entire family for the time frame of almost a generation. And how eventually, we find how to overcome it and not be destroyed.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fifteenth of June?

There are many. The culmination of the family's and individually, Drew's letting go is a strong moment in the story.


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

I haven't read the print or ebook edition. Wyatt Baker does an admirable job! A strong listenable voice, an ability at dramatic narration without being cartoonish. A good choice for this work.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I mentioned that I identified with the book. And I titled the review to represent my reaction.


Any additional comments?
