A strange kind of circus!

Where does Sideshow rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The story picks up after a slow start and then...wow! If any of you have experienced a real sideshow, Resnick's presentation of that "life" is very gripping. The narrator of the audio book uses various voices in most effective manner. Can't wait to listen to the next book in this series.

Which character – as performed by Kerry Woodrow – was your favorite?

Tojo and the "Blue Man"

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

I just wanted to slap Thaddeus, so I guess Kerry Woodrow presented that character effectively!

Any additional comments?

Hope to hear more from Kerry Woodrow
