Ever fantasize about having super powers and saving the day? I have and this story helped me revisit that part of myself again and I really enjoyed that ride.

Entertaining book; odd narration

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dogboy?

It definitely gained momentum as the story went, which is what you want. It started out interesting, took some meandering side trips (or so it seemed), and seemed to jump around a couple of times (but perhaps that was me getting distracted), and was most enjoyable for the last hour as various pieces of the story clicked into place.


Would you listen to another book narrated by Nathan Beatty?

I don't know. Nathan had some excellent character voices. There was something odd about his reading of the narrator, however. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, but it was a bit distracting. At times, I thought perhaps he was doing a "cold reading", but his expertise with the character voices eliminated that possibility.


Any additional comments?

Highly recommended for children around 10-12, particularly boys. It's not necessarily a book adults will enjoy as much as children, but it's a fun ride anyway.
