COMICS WILL BREAK YOUR HEART

by | Read by Carly Robins

Young Adult Young Adult • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

This contemporary story, narrated by Carly Robins, is inspired by ROMEO AND JULIET. It's clear that Nova Scotian Miriam Kendrick should not fall for Californian Weldon Warrick. Decades ago, Weldon's grandfather purchased the rights to the TomorrowMen comic series for a paltry sum, leaving his co-creator--Miriam's grandfather--with nothing when the series became a worldwide success. While the teen characters sound age appropriate, Robins's portrayal of their parents often sound like caricatures of adults. Generic accents belie the story's Canadian setting, and uneven pacing keeps the listener from engaging with the story. Unlike Robins's previous performances, her delivery does not sound authentic. This audiobook is one to skip. A.L.S.M. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2019]
