Any additional comments?
I basically binge listened to first The Thing I Didn’t Know I Didn’t Know then Barefoot in the City of Broken Dreams. While I liked the first, I didn’t particularly connect with the second, so I started The Road to Amazing with a bit of trepidation worried I might not like it.
I needn’t have worried. Hartinger brings back all the characters I’ve loved and sets a really sweet tone amidst the chaos of a wedding weekend where so much goes wrong. Dead Orca on the beach below your wedding venue? Check. Huge storms knocking out power? Check. Wedding guests not being able to get to the island the wedding is happening on? Check.
However, through it all Russel keeps his cool (with a lot of help from his friends) and calms nervous groom Kevin (with a lot of help from their friends).
For me, it’s truly the supporting cast that makes this series fun, but what makes it really enjoyable is narrator Josh Hurley. I’ll say it again, Josh Hurley really does an excellent job with the different character voices. I also love how he portrays the myriad of expressed character emotions.
And can I just give a shout out to my boy Gunnar? You may not be easily understood, but you are definitely one of my favorite characters! Love you, boo!
I’ve enjoyed my time with Russel, Kevin and the gang. My wish for the future? I hope, if there are more installments, that Hartinger will open up the points of view to include Kevin and Minh, Gunnar and/or Otto.
