    1. This was a short and heartbreaking play that I listened to on audio It is based on a true story which makes it all the sadder It is about a baby boy who suffers a terrible accident and a doctor who convinces the boy s parents to raise him as a girl It is the doctor s theory that we are all blank slates when we are born and our upbringing is what reinforces our sexual identity I felt so bad for the boy and the parents and even a tiny bit for the misguided doctor.

    2. The main character in this story was born a boy but had an accident as a baby and was left without a penis The doctor tells the parents to raise him as a girl He has therapy, and is made to do all girl things, as in dresses, girl toys, etc He has interest in boy things and is persuaded away from them He feels like a boy and is attracted to girls Trying to do this doesn t stick He reverts to be recognized as male This is very short so it doesn t get into everything, but you do witness some of his [...]

    3. Another terrible people behave badly and in some cases, incomprehensibly so book, done as a theatrical production for extra cringe factor This is based on the true story of a boy whose penis was badly damaged in an accident as a baby his parents were advised by a prominent gender identity psychologist to surgically finish the job, so to speak, and raise him as a girl This sounds horrific now I d like to think it sounded almost as bad then, in 1967, but admittedly less was known about gender iden [...]

    4. There s a line at the very beginning of this play where Adam implies that Jenny is wearing too skimpy an outfit It put me off a bit I didn t have a lot of drive to get back to listening to it and I felt a bit of negativity, because for all that I found the topic interesting, I needed it to make up for or explain that line.And it didn t Adam is super creepy Jenny s really dumb The doctor seemed like quite a jerk I really didn t like that Adam s creepy behaviour with Jenny, and perhaps his over in [...]

    5. I absolutely hated every last character in this book and could not get behind the things they did Desperately uncomfortable and infuriating Two stars because it s based on something that actually happened and I suppose I can t blame the playwright for my hatred And also because the acting was well done and very natural and I can t blame the actors for my hate either.

    6. First Lines 1989 Oh my lord I know I m so sorry Cindy usually she s got better music I mean usually it s not so loud Hey do you recognize me What I know you Do you know me p.1 It s the 1960s and Sam s parents are devastated They took their twin baby boys back to the hospital to have them circumcised when the machine malfunctions and destroys baby Sam s penis What can they do How do they help their baby They meet a doctor, who s field of study is gender identity, who claims society not nature det [...]

    7. I did not know anything about this play until I started listening to it as performed by the L.A Theatre Works Within the first minute, however, I realized I ve actually knew the true story this play is based on because I read a non fiction book on this case earlier this year Rather strange coincidence as the audio performance was one I got for free with no connection to the book I read a few months ago.The audio performance was very well done I think hearing it rather than reading it made it bet [...]

    8. I obtained this book from the AudioSync summer books and with those I m never sure what I ll get I liked this one Since it was a play, it converted to an audiobook really well The actors and actresses did a great job because I found myself feeling sad for Samantha and the parents There are many reviews with people being furious for the parent s choice Personally, I didn t agree with it, but had to remember the story took place in the 60 s where gender issues were a much taboo issue then than th [...]

    9. Ms Ziegler s Boy is a very sensitive, powerful, challenging, potentially disturbing piece It is the kind of work that should leave audience members thinking long after they close the cover or exit the theatre Each character is complex, with both strength and fragility The process of reveals builds throughout the entire play, with the reader audience at times wondering along with the characters, and at other times, gut twisted with knowledge that the characters don t have.It is a story that can h [...]

    10. I m not sure if it was the production I listened to, but Boy didn t quite meet the admittedly high expectations I had for it The premise of this play is fantastic, but it doesn t deliver all the way The flashback structure mostly works well I m fine with the main plot being romantic, although it felt like a bit of an easy way out for the subject matter But Adam was creepy I don t see any way around it And the final scene It seemed about another character s change actualization than Adam s, in a [...]

    11. I received this free from SYNC, and since it s a play, it transitions well to audiobook It s dramatic and heart wrenching This takes place in the 1960s 1980s and is based on a true story Back in the 60s, a well meaning but rather misguided doctor convinces 2 parents to raise their infant son as a girl, after a tragic accident They don t tell the child that he was born a boy, like his twin brother, and instead, they try to shape him into girl using sterotypical girl talk and Girl activities to tr [...]

    12. If you haven t yet experienced a production from L.A Theatre Works, you should Their productions put you in the middle of the audience This time around I listened to another play from the Relativity series, science plays The story of a boy who was born a boy but after a disfiguring accident was raised a son Throughout his life he knew something was not quite right The play goes back and forth through time from when the parents notified the doctor and the plan to raise him as a girl developed, to [...]

    13. Wow A multicast audio production based on a true story, that is both horrifying and fascinating The pain and confusion of Adam came across loud and clear I was so angry at the doctor who took this family s tragedy and used it as a horrible experiment I was also angry at the parents, but they put their trust in the wrong person and blindly followed the advice of an expert It took WAY too long for them to do the right thing.

    14. Thank you to AudioBookSync for giving this play out during their summer reading program I really enjoyed listening to this recording It has extremely well produced and well read The story was heart wrenching and really addressed a lot of gender identity issues as well as the impact on all of the members of the family I really recommend this play to everyone as it really allows people to see multiple view points.Happy Reading

    15. This was way shorter than I anticipated It isn t necessarily inappropriate for teens it s part of the summer Sync downloads program but I think it mostly would make sense to people peripherally aware of the original book story it s originally based on The dramatization is a little light on background details.

    16. I really enjoyed this It was an audiobook performed by the LA Theatre Troupe and it was very well acted The MCs journey was realistic and painful and I think they said it was based on a true story, which is even tragic Adam is born a male but, after an unfortunate accident, is castrated and is forced to live as a girl, Samantha Adam begins to feel like he isn t in the right body and his story progresses from there While I wouldn t necessarily consider it an LGBT book, it is definitely an intere [...]

    17. Very good look at sexual identity In this case it is not about a gay person hiding or a transgender person wanting to transition It is about a straight boy who feels like a boy, even though all the world tells him otherwise I think that it really gets across the point that nobody should tell you what your sexual identity should be Very recommended.

    18. This is one of those books that I think everyone needs to read It tells a true heartbreaking story of a boy who was born a girl, but had an accident at birth Must read

    19. Disturbing look at nature vs nurture when it comes to gender sex The audiobook was a little hard to follow as it switched time periods and names but it was worth sticking with it.
