Fantastic character growth & detailed descriptions

Would you consider the audio edition of The Schwa Was Here to be better than the print version?

I think the print version of The Schwa was here would be equally enjoyable to the audio version. I did love that the author narrated his own book!

What did you like best about this story?

Probably what I enjoyed best about the book was how the main character, Antsy grows as a person.

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

Shusterman's emphasis and accent were great.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I wouldn't want to read this entire book in one sitting, but preferred to stop and think about the book. I like listening to audiobooks while I drive and clean up around the house, and this one was entertaining enough to make me look forward to a long drive and even to cleaning up the kitchen.
