August Barton could never have mentally prepared himself for his freshman year of college: not only has his anxiety increased, but his parents are divorcing, his new roommate thinks Augie is the biggest nerd in existence, and his grandma, a retired prostitute named Gertie, has taken to running away from her nursing home. Augie just wants to hole up in his dorm room with his Star Wars collectables and textbooks, but Gertie is not about to let that happen. What ensues is a crazy ride including naked trespassing, befriending a local biker gang, and maybe-just maybe-with Augie defeating his anxiety and actually getting the girl.

The Tribulations of August Barton is not what I was expecting. It was so much more than my expectations. It was one of the most entertaining and fun books I have read in a long time. It was perfect for what I needed in my life right now. I laughed so hard at August and the situations he found himself into.
It was great to have the audio version of The Tribulations of August Barton. Listening to James Oliva was fantastic. His performance was perfect for this book.
I am giving The Tribulations of August Barton a very well deserved five plus stars. I am excited to find out that it is the first book of the August Barton series. I think I might have squealed like a little girl when I discovered it. I will most definitely be looking forward to reading the next book, The Revelations of August Barton. I have got to find out where else August goes. I highly recommend this one for readers who are needing some fun and laughter in their life. It is definitely well worth a read.
I received the audio version of this from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
