Publisher Description

Josh Swensen (otherwise known as Larry) can’t seem to get off the couch. His usual overactive imagination and save-the-world mindset have all but vanished, and his best friend Beth is seriously worried.When Beth coaxes Josh into taking a walk at Walden Pond, Josh meets Gus Muldarian, a spiritual guru who convinces him to join his study group as a way to find deeper meaning in life. Josh thinks Gus is a joke. Still, feeling desperate and seeing no way out of his rut, he agrees to try it. What begins as a harmless Thoreau-esque search for meaning soon turns into Josh’s most chaotic and profound adventure yet.
After the success of The Gospel According to Larry and Vote for Larry, Janet Tashjian returns with yet another tour de force—an audiobook that explores important topics and will keep teens hooked right until the unexpected end.

One of my favourite books, but the narrator is TERRIBLE!

Pretty much the title says it all! I listen to the audio books of "The Gospel According to Larry" and "Vote For Larry" over and over (like literally every day...!) I love the Larry trilogy and was excited to find that the third was finally released as an audio book, but really, it was a waste of money for a die-hard Larry fan. This narrator lacks expression and unlike the first two books where you really believed Jesse Eisenburg WAS Larry, this narrator sounds stiff and awkward, like a bad actor reading off the page. AND he doesn't note the footnotes (ie. saying "footnote" before, so you know what it is), and just inserts them into the regular text. The whole thing is just a mess. Very disappointed, but I suppose even a terrible version is better than none at all.
