What made the experience of listening to The Julian Chapter the most enjoyable?
The story line here overlaps partly with the original book, but also makes an interesting departure into the past, which added another dimension to the world of Wonder, and especially to Julian's character, which helped make his transition credible.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Julian Chapter?
The meeting with Tushman and Julian's parents: the mother character is very compelling and got a strong reaction from all listeners in our house.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
As a French speaker I can say that the French accent of Grandmere was not even remotely a French accent. Eastern European? No idea where this accent came from. But it makes the book almost unlistenable for anyone who has ever heard French spoken. In fact, some of the mispronunciations are comical, because they result in completely different meanings - e.g., "Je vous faire pipi" instead of "Je veux faire pipi" turns "I want to pee" into "I'm peeing to (or on) you". My hope is that if ever these books are re-recorded, the Julian character will be played by someone who can also muster a decent French accent.
