I enjoyed the story. There are a lot of funny laugh out loud moments and the characters persona were well developed. The narration fell a little flat sometimes, but the protagonist is a bit deflated so it often fit. I was annoyed by the voice he used for the female characters.
Judd walks in on his wife having sex with his boss and his father has died. This is his story of grief for both as well as for his life. Good narration, good story.
Really enjoyed it; found myself laughing out loud while listening and driving... And almost crying sometimes too. No matter where you are in life, there is something to take away from this story.
Not funny, not interesting, not a realistic family dynamic, just plain not good. Wish I'd just watched the movie instead of wasting so many hours of my life listening to this hoping it would redeem itself in the end. Spoiler alert, it doesn't.
Reading is a great source for an old guy trying to reinvent himself
This book had to be good, right? I mean a major motion picture, bestseller list,competent writer with an ear for striking metaphors; how could we go wrong?but In the end there is nothing. The characters go their dysfunctional ways, wallow in their disloyalties, practice their incompetencies; and learn, from all appearances, nothing.
You wouldn't expect so many moments of hilarity while sitting shiva. Tropper hits just the right balance.
Very impressed with the narrator's pronunciation of the Hebrew words.
Better story, interesting charaters
Not the genre but definitely the author.
I hated the narrator. He whines.
Too many to list.
I'd like to get my money back for this book. A total waste of a book credit.

No I haven't but I will check out the authors other books
No not unless the family has another reason to gather together again for some reason
I had listened to this book for two days to finish it. In that I will say that I enjoyed the book until you realize that you will get no answer in the end.. Was happy with the book, Laughed, listened intently and felt like crying ( had a similar situation to the book ) but in the end I felt that I had just read two thirds of the book to not hear the last of it..
