you should get this book. it's sweet, hearwarming and real. it just reflects how awful people can be, but by contrast and balance how awesome as well. it's one of the better one's i've listened to.
The book is cute... and acute - the way words and phrases are repeated is a literary devise of some form I suppose, but it gets a bit tiresome. I almost ditched the book after the first hour due to the monotone narration and repetitive dialog. I kept listening and it turned out to be an entertaining book in the end. The characters gain depth as the book progresses, which I wasn't sure would happen. It does make you think about what things have "value" in your life. As expected, the low IQ of the main character does not mean he has low "life wisdom." A sort of "out of the mouth's of babes" book.
This book reminded me what it means to be rich - to have family and friends, people who show you the way, teach you, are honest and kind.
Gram for her wisdom and pure love.
Excellent narrator. Loved all of his voices.
You could listen to it in one sitting, but better to savor.
Yes, the characters were so real and the story remarkable and touching.
Keith. His way of saying things was so amusing.
Maintained my interest, not boring at all.
It was all moving.
I didn't want it to end
We really enjoyed listening to this...until he won the lottery, then things slowed down and got far too detailed. This would've been a knockout win with more solid editing.
This book is a warm, funny and poignant story that moved me. Emotional rendition of how it feels to be a "special needs" person who is honest, loving, trusting and kind but who manages to make great, wise choices and find happiness. This book is filled with wisdom and grace! Highly recommended!

This book was excellently delivered and offered beautiful insight into the mind of a man with an IQ of 76. It demonstrates the sad reality of where too many place their priorities.
