I enjoyed listening to this book as I was on a trip. Not sure I would have chosen it on my own, but I did enjoy the chance to listen to it. It is one that would have probably been better for me as a book. ( )

A quick read, On the Road to Mr. Mineo's is the story of the search for a one-legged pigeon by neighborhood kids and townspeople alike. Aimed at younger readers, the book does a great job of capturing what it is like to be a kid, dealing with both bullies and best friends. As an adult reader, however, it didn't quite catch my fancy.

This is a story about a small Southern town in the midst of a lazy summer. It stars a one-legged pigeon, a girl named Stella and all the other characters who orbit around her. I would say its ideal format would be a printed book with illustrations, perfect for a youngster who is just beginning to read chapter books. It would not be painful as an adult to listen to this with a child. The narrator does an excellent job with her different voices and the timing. The story is cute, the characters well drawn and the setting is good. I could almost taste the dust in the streets and smell the rotten peaches in the abandoned orchard.
I became tired of the almost staccato pacing of the sentences. I wasn't sure whether I was being talked down to or whether that was simply the author's style. The pigeon chase became annoying to me. Some of these criticisms could be the result of my mood and the lack of a child to enjoy it with. ( )

A fun, enjoyable book. I was given the audio version and it was the perfect audio book for a road trip. I think kids of all ages will enjoy this.

I was rather disappointed in this story. Perhaps it's because I don't have a very high opinion of pigeons, homing or one-legged or otherwise.  Barbara O'Connor does a good job conjuring up the look and feel of a timeless small Southern town (the fictional Meadville, South Carolina), but I didn't care about Sherman the pigeon or any of the kids trying to catch him, or the grown-ups in the story.  I found myself getting impatient for the book to just end.  There's a lot of repetition, in the plot and in the text, but that might be good for beginning or struggling readers.

However, the quality of the audiobook was outstanding!  Recorded Books does what many audiobook producers don't any more - tells you when the disc is beginning and ending, and which disc you are on.  Actress Suzy Jackson is an excellent narrator with a youthful sound who does a credible job with Southern accents and creating variety in the voices of the characters.  My only quibble is that I believe the audiobook is longer than 2.75 hours - more like 4 to 4.5, given the length of my commute and the fact that it took three days to listen to it.
