Reviews

Hilarious but Robotic

(3 stars)

The story of Pee-Wee Harris is one of pure hilarity and fast paced childish/ADHD like pacing befitting of Pee-Wes's nature. The narrator however good at keeping the pacing up made the story difficult to follow by his Robotic Rhythm of reading which was prevalent from the very beginning.

Well done!

(4 stars)

I really enjoied the audio version of this book. It is well read and moves along at a nice pace. The only negative thing I can say is that they spelled Pee-wee's name incorrectly... It is Pee-wee, not Pee Wee or Pee-Wee
