Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, read by Michael Crouch.

Straight people should have to come out too. And the more awkward it is, the better.

Simon Spier is 16 and trying to work out who he is - and what he's looking for. But when one of his emails to the very distracting Blue falls into the wrong hands, things get all kinds of complicated. Because for Simon, falling for Blue is a big deal.... It's a holy freaking huge awesome deal.

Simon vs the homosapien agenda

I really loved this book, and found it extremely hard to stop listening. I love the ending and most things in the story, besides the outing and friendship drama. However, it's set in high school concerning teenagers so drama is to be expected. I found myself relating to Simon a lot and was grinning like a fool in most things concerning him and Blue. It's all very sweet.

So good

This was just such a nice story. It had me anxious and smiling like a crazy person as I listened to it. It is such a good story that is very realistic and it hit hone for me. I’m not quite out to the world but it makes me hopeful for someday that it happens and how good it might be to have that whole experience with someone.

bursting with rainbow happiness

This book is very cute and enjoyable. I couldn't stop myself from crying and smiling during some emotionally tugging scenes.

Becky did a wondrous job at getting into Simon’s head, and Michael was equally amazing at bringing out Simon's emotions through narration.

Nothing impreasive

Dont mean to be rude but this is just a time killer beach book, nothing profound. I don't know if its cause i just read "Call me by your name" but this left me somewhat irritated for its narration and vocabulary of fifteen year old mediocre-intelligent girl.

Also reading from who is it and to whom is it to every email is superfluous.
