By Dominique Wilkins
Sheldon’s parents always told him how smart and special he was, but yet he never felt special. The kids in his class always made fun of him and none of them wanted to be his friends. Eventually, they began talking to him, but that was only because he had something they wanted. They either wanted to borrow money or a favor to help them with their homework, since they knew Sheldon was good at saving his money and great with math. Sheldon became used to the fact that they just wanted to use him. He became so used to it, began to capitalize off of it. He became everyone’s go-to guy. As he got older he felt power in knowing that they all needed him, while he needed and wanted nothing from them, until he met Ruby. She was different and she changed all of that. There was something about Ruby and he wanted to be with her and would stop at nothing until he had her or until she had him, making him regret ever setting eyes on her…
This was a great audio story about a guy who is different. He’s made fun of when he is younger, used for his abilities when he is older and otherwise discarded or ignored. Sheldon cared about no one but himself, for why should he? No one else cared about him. At least that was until he met Ruby.
Once Sheldon found someone he thought he could love, it was fascinating to see what lengths he would go to, to get her attention. The twist at the end of the book that causes things to fall apart was so shocking I actually had to listen to twice before I could believe what I heard.
I liked the reader’s voice. It was easy to listen to. He spoke clearly and not too quickly or slowly. There was good intonation and sufficient emotion.
Rumplesheldon was a very enjoyable audiobook that played in about 30 minutes. I gave it 4 stars out of 5. I would recommend it to other readers of literary fiction.
Thank you to the author who provided a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
