This book has a great premise, but it did not work for me. It seemed too long, to the point where the maing character seemed whiny. The narrator was OK during the lighte or funny parts, but I found him annoying during the more serious/dramatic parts of the story.
To me, the Virgin Suicides by the same author is a MUCH more enjoyable listen
This was one of those books I was sorry to end. I really got to know the characters from beginning to end and loved how it told the story through generations.
Kristoffer Tabori is an incredible narrator- the highlight of the book. He brings the characters to life. The story is long but worth it in the end.
This was one of the more engrossing books I've encountered... I laughed, I cried, I was appalled and I was enthralled.
Excellent. The narrator was a PERFECT choice, and the entire experience is one I won't soon forget. WONDERFUL!
A great story, masterfully told. I was very impressed with how sensitively the author addressed the highly complex issues of gender and sexuality.
This sweeping tale was so very enjoyable.. the characters came to life. Interesting interwoven story lines, funny and touching, with surprising twists. The reader is wonderful and expressive. Really enjoyed this book.
