An excellent performance brings this story expertly to life. The trials and tribulations of the teenage Dylan Mint are at times laugh out loud hilarious as he ponders his way through some of the more confusing and strange things adults do. His first person perspective makes the story all the more involving for the listener.
I was part way through this book when I realised this was really for young adults. (This is a mistake I often make when I respond to special offers and don't bother to check the full details.) Notwithstanding that I found myself enjoying this gentle tale of a young lad with Tourettes living an ordinary life with an extraordinary affliction. The swearing is pretty graphic, as you should expect, but I have a sneaking admiration for the author for maintaining integrity and keeping this in.
The plot progresses fairly predictably and I did think that Dylan came across as somebody younger than 16 years of age. I suppose this can be explained by the fact he has been over protected by his mother. On the whole this tale has a good and humorous heart and a valuable message for young people in helping them understand Tourettes.

I mostly listened to this in the park and on the bus, even though this was a bad choice. I kept holding my hand on my mouth to try and strangle the laughs. It was seriously hilarious! And the narration is just perfect! I will absolutely listen to this one again.
