Reviews (Rated: 5 Stars - 3 reviews)

Reviewer: - April 5, 2016
Subject: Good story!!
Good story but a lot of narrations of environment and other fictional things..
Reviewer: - April 13, 2013
I enjoyed this book. Quite opposite from what you would think if a genie came into your life and granted every wish. Makes you remember the saying, "be careful for what you wish for." A couple of the readers were hard to listen to, but didn't detract from the story much.

Subject: Great story!
A very funny story, great characters, excellent reader. I'll listen to this again someday.
