I am not a big listener of fictional audiobooks; I tend to stick to non-fiction and memoirs. However, I find that fictional audiobooks are super great to listen to when I am stuck doing the daily, everyday tasks that keep my hands busy but my mind free to pay attention to the story. The narrator, Stephen L. Lookadoo, Jr., did a great job in providing a performance that definitely kept my attention (no monotone voice here!). Listening to these tales was so entertaining that I kept looking for chores to do so I could keep listening! Definitely give this trio a listen!
