Just going to say....

I just finished The Freak Observer and I liked it.....a lot!


  1. As promised, we are no longer soon as we get back from Disney

  2. I'm glad that other people have agreed that there is something about this book...and now that it has moved so far I don't feel like an idiot for advancing it out of the first round (despite what Vanessa might think!).

  3. Honestly part of the reason for my distaste it that I listened to this book and the narrator was horrific. I have listened to over 100 audiobooks and I know my narrators. It is a lesson for authors that they need to have someone read the book as they would. If that was case, and that is how the narrator wanted it read, then I am really disappointed.
