Audio Book Review: "The Beginning of Everything" by Robyn Schneider
I've got to say, this book was much funnier than I expected. I think that the narrator, Dan John Miller, did an excellent job especially with the different character's voices. All except for Cassidy. I get that this is set in California, and most of the female characters are kind of vapid "Valley Girl" type girls... Cassidy isn't. When I really listened to the dialogue (which was funny and witty and pretty awesome), the voice given her didn't really match the words she was saying.
I didn't let this disrupt my enjoyment of the story though. This was a great look at how one person is forced to really examine himself in terms of how he might define or identify himself and think about what he wants and not just what people expect of him. There are also some great scenes in which characters are shown standing up and doing the right thing which I thought was pretty fantastic.
