If you could sum up Proxy in three words, what would they be?
Easy, fun, illogical
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The general idea of proxies is interesting, but there were many instances where things happened that simply would and could never happen. I mean, I'm all for suspension of disbelief in stories, but I like the story to stick to the rules it sets for its universe. There were moments during this book when I was actually saying, "oh, come ooonnn!" out loud. That being said, if you allow yourself to just get over these inconsistencies, this is certainly a fun listen.
What does Andrew Sweeney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Andrew does a wonderful job. I always love listening to a book where the narrator is a guy (or girl), but I don't even notice when they are reading the characters who are the opposite sex. Andrew is one of those narrators. He creates a voice for each character, but none of them are so over the top that they distract from the story.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
There were a few times when I kept listening even after I got out of the car during particularly exciting parts.
Any additional comments?
This is an intriguing idea, and I did enjoy myself overall. One of my favorite things about this book is that the main character is gay but the story isn't about him being gay. His homosexuality is simply a part of who he happens to be. In that regard, this book is ahead of its time.
