Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott | 2/8/2014

    " My favorite book of all time...I read it at least once a year. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Timothy R. | 1/26/2014

    " If I have male offspring, they will be given this book during middle school. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenne | 1/18/2014

    " I thought about it, and I decided this is my book that, if you don't like it, you are dead to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 1/17/2014

    " Also in Daniel Pinkwater's 5 novels with Alan Mehndolsson, Boy from Mars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe | 1/10/2014

    " Starts strong, ends weak. However, it was my 8-year-old son's favorite book of 2009. Note: there is a tiny mention of sex in the story, which you can choose not to read aloud without spoiling the plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 1/10/2014

    " This is my favorite book ever. Really. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darryl | 1/3/2014

    " This was a fun little book. But I felt like it might have been developed with a mad-lib generator. It throws together a lot of silly little things. But it also makes me want to sneak out and explore the city at night. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martha O. | 1/3/2014

    " This book was a game-changer when I was a kid. So different, wacky, off-kilter from the norm. It's weird, and funny, and a little dark, and a little light, and awesome. Plus, Daniel Pinkwater is hysterical. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 11/4/2013

    " I didn't read any young adult books when I was a young adult. I really missed out on Daniel Pinkwater. He's bizarre in just the right ways. The boys do things I would've done in High School. Actually, perhaps it is best I didn't read this, it would've given me ideas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 8/25/2013

    " Because I read it, it's awesome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 8/12/2013

    " In this YA novel, the hero and his buddy Winston Bongo sneak out at night to watch old movies in a local theatre -- snarking out. This unprepossessing beginning leads, of course, to performing chickens, intergalactic super-sleuths, and the Mighty Gorilla, amongst other marvels. Good Pinkwater fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles Choi | 8/4/2013

    " Hugely influential on my childhood psyche. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ross Connelly | 6/21/2013

    " I don't actually remember anything about this book except that I loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elesa Hagberg | 3/9/2013

    " One of my favorite Pinkwater books. Makes me want to eat a baked potato! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 3/2/2013

    " Arguably the most influential book I've ever read (and reread and rereread and...). It taught me to accept the weird with a shrug but always question the normal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tymber Dalton | 1/28/2013

    " This was another great book I loved as a kid! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keith | 10/16/2012

    " Absolutely fantastic. Pinkwater's at the top of his game. Hilarious, exciting, unique and absurd. A massive sentient avocado. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ray Charbonneau | 7/7/2012

    " I suppose I might have liked this when I was 5. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zab | 6/29/2012

    " They don't come any quirkier than Pinkwater, and this book in particular is a masterpiece whose protagonists escape teen ennui by entering a wierdly wonderful universe of obscure pop culture parody, urban planning insights, and lots of really goofy humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 6/18/2012

    " I gave this book 4 stars based mainly on my remembrances of it as a child. I loved this book and read it multiple times while growing up. I think it needs a rereading as an adult, to decide if my love of it was accurate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 12/16/2011

    " This was one of my favorite books as a young kid. Everything about it, title down, was perfect for the aspiring pre-teen uber-geek. Reading it now just takes me right back there, which is great, and awkward. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Autumn | 11/18/2011

    " I need to read this again, especially considering that I am still snarking out about twice a month at my advanced age. Also, I better get a copy for my nephews... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Edwinspindrift | 11/7/2011

    " Thank you, Mr. Pinkwater, for giving a little girl with crippling anxiety the name that made her strong. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 7/14/2011

    " I LOVED this book when I was a kid. Read it over many times. I wanted to get a copy for my school library and introduce a new generation of readers, but it is sadly out of print. I may have to buy a used copy anyway! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gavin | 3/16/2011

    " I loved these stories. This sequence of novels are a few of the starting blocks that I launched off of to really embrace reading. I read them countless times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 1/4/2011

    " 5 of the best books ever. Buy this for Young Adult Novel, stick around for the other books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stewart | 9/13/2010

    " Actually, I am just reading "Alan Mendelsohn, the Boy from Mars" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hali | 7/18/2010

    " Alan Mendelsohn, Boy From Mars is one of my favorite stories of all time and has been for as long as I can remember. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nettie | 6/23/2010

    " I learned from these books that it's okay to be a little unorthodox with your imagination. Sometimes it produces great stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ceci | 3/10/2010

    " These stories are so strange and funny. I read them a few years ago, and I still can't figure out what planet Daniel Pinkwater is from! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 12/12/2009

    " Contains one of the all-time best children's books ever written--Alan Mendelsohn. I tried to convince my friend in the film industry to adapt it for a movie. He didn't bite. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 12/1/2009

    " My kids and I read and re-read this book all the time. Same goes for the "4 Novels" book. Our copies of have become extremely dog-eared. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alana | 4/28/2009

    " Had it been just Alan Mendelsohn, The Snarkout Boys (which I read in highschool and loved), and Young Adult Novel, this would have been five stars all the way. I hope I am remembering correctly that Snarkout Boys had a sequel.
    "
