    I loved listening to the whole thing. I found it interesting that the actors chosen for Pete by the authors of the early chapters seemed similar and the actors chosen for Pete by the later authors were similar, but the early and later images were very different. I don’t know what that means, but I found it interesting to note.

    Also, getting to “meet” some of the authors I haven’t yet makes me so much more excited for the launch party. I can’t wait to get to together with the whole group and chat and cheer for our collective success.

    This year’s novel is a really amazing work.
