I had heard this book reviewed on the radio as being one of The Books of the summer. The first third of the book takes place in low end mens club and the life of single mom who is working there. Just when your wondering where this is all going, the different characters are pulled together, making the 2nd half of this book worth listening to. A very good book, of peoples lives, problems and the days leading up to and including 9/11.
I loved House of Sand and Fog, so was really looking forward to this one. However, I plowed my way through 2 hours and found it to be a collosal bore. In addition, the narrator was one of the least interesting I've heard and did nothing to make me want to continue. I was unable to finish this one.
Say something about yourself!
although i was a little slow in getting through the beginning of this book i found i was glued to the ending.. really not a bad listen..good characters. made me want to save a stripper..
