When I Was the Greatest by Jason Reynolds, narrated by JB Adkins is absolutely fantastic! I highly recommend it to...well, everyone! In fact, I can't think of anyone I wouldn't recommend it to. It's so good! I teach high school in an urban setting, so I am often drawn to books that either remind me of my students in some way, or present an opportunity for me to learn more about the lives of my students. Not to mention, Jason Reynolds is a celebrity in our classroom! We LOVE his work! He is a brilliant author who has the amazing ability of grabbing your attention right from the start and not letting go! Though the situations may not always be pleasant (because, face it, real life isn't always pleasant), the themes and messages that come across stick with you long after the last page.
This audiobook about family, brotherhood, loyalty, sacrifice, doing what's right,...I could go on and on!!....is flawlessly narrated. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to JB Adkins. I couldn't imagine a more perfect voice for this book! The pace, tone, volume, and inflection were right on. Outstanding job!
Overall, I give this audiobook a well-deserved 5/5 stars! I feel listening to it was even better than reading it, which is also awesome. If you haven't read or listened to any books by Jason Reynolds, you are missing out! Do yourself a favor and get one, any of them. They are all engaging, entertaining, and thought-provoking. On that note, I'm off to listen to his new release, Long Way Down, which I'm positive is going to be just as great as this one!!
Thank you for reading my review. I hope it was helpful. :-)
