Where does Dream Warriors rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I've only listened to about a dozen audiobooks so far, but this is easily one of my favorites.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The titular character, Joey Cola, sounds like a recipe for unrelatability. He's exceptionally intelligent, the son of a wealthy diplomat and part of a huge family with its own quirky cast of characters. But beyond that, he's very much your average kid, vulnerable and frustrated with his own limitations. While what he is makes for an interesting story, it's who he is that keeps us hooked.
I also liked that the story has a number of strong female characters: Joey's mother, his friend Alex, and the mysterious Cleopatra. Although the main character is male, I feel like this book would appeal to teenage boys and girls alike.
What about David Radtke’s performance did you like?
David is a versitile narrator, and his youthful voice is perfect for young protagonists, and young adult literature in general. He is able to portray a full cast of various ages, genders, and ethnicities with clarity and without confusion . He is very mindful of the author's descriptions, and his voices enhance those descriptions, as well as the listener's experience. I've listened to several other works he's narrated, and this is some of his best work.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Saving the world? They can do that in their sleep.
Any additional comments?
If you have teenagers and a long car ride, get this book! After all, who hasn't been fascinated by the power of dreams? Who hasn't wanted to control what happens in a dream, or better yet, make their dreams a reality?
