Quotes

  • “This seventh volume of Scieszka’s Guys Read series has a robust bunch of heavy-hitting authors, a diverse group of voices narrating, and stories with a little something for everyone. These pieces have a great mix of humor and heart, and the narrators work to bring out hope, mischief, and mystery to keep listeners wanting more. These pieces are vastly different stylistically, but they work beautifully as a collection, and the use of multiple narrators with varying styles and characterizations highlights the strengths of each piece while providing lively and engaging adventures for listeners. A quality listen for all ages and genders, ideal for fans of short stories and unique characters.”
