Unique sequel

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would because, as a sequel to the first book in his series ("The Geography Club"), author Brent Hartinger has gone in a direction that was certainly novel and opened up new opportunities for growth and experience among his characters. The unique setting for this second installment was enlightening, informative, and relevant. Certainly a treat.


Would you be willing to try another book from Brent Hartinger? Why or why not?

Yes, and I have. As mentioned in earlier reviews, I appreciate Mr. Hartinger's respect for his characters: teens who are figuring out the world, are admittedly confused about lots of things (including their own behavior), and (most of all) speak like teens.


What does Josh Hurley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He's awesome. The author really retained the "teen voice" throughout this book series, but that could have easily been lost with poor narration. Mr. Hurley did a fantastic job conveying all that the characters are at this point in their lives.
