What made the experience of listening to So Much to Tell You the most enjoyable?
There aren't tons of audiobooks that hold interest for our 14 year old daughter, as well as my wife and myself. However, this one was perfect for a recent road trip. We listened to the book the whole way through and it was nice to listen as a family, instead of breaking off into our own little worlds of iPods and headphones. The content of the book is at times emotional and meaningful, so it lead to some great discussions, too. How many books will get a teenager willingly talking about "hard things?"
Who was your favorite character and why?
The book, while fiction, is written in a first person, autobiographical, journal entry, format. We all liked the main character. You don't learn her name until the last minute of the book, so I won't spoil it here.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Kate Hosking?
Probably. Be advised that she is an Australian reader (which makes sense because the author of this book is Australian, and the story takes place in Australia) so she has an accent that you will probably find pleasant or off-putting. Check out the preview for a couple of minutes before purchasing this book.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It was, and we did. The miles and hours on the Interstate went quickly as we were engrossed in the story.

I loved this book as a teenager and it is still a favorite. It was the only book that I could relate to during my teens. It always amazes me how John Marsden can write so honestly from a young girl's perspective.
So Much To Tell You doesn't begin in the begining, and surtenly doesn't end at the end. But it's a really wonderful book. I listened to this book in 1 sitting more than a mounth ago. I am still thinking about it quite a lot. The reader is perfect for the story. She just knows how to do it right. It's not an easy read, not at all. Marina is not easy to get along with, but I found myself liking her more and more as the book progressed. There are many more carichtors in this book whom I admired or liked. If you wish to have an interesting and thought-provoking time, when you listen to this book and long after you finish, please take it.
