    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I will never again buy a book without first listening to a sample. It's my fault. I have never done that before and now I've paid for it. I bought this book based on the wild reviews and comments here. Within the first 5 minutes of listening I knew I was going to have a very hard time with this book. Maybe it's just me book the reader sounds like a 22 year old frat boy who tries WAY to hard to bring diversity to his characters. If he tries to drop his voice to low, which he does often, it start to sounds gravelly and tone less. I couldn't take it any more after 5 chapters, which is unfortunate because the story line indeed seems to be promising and the author writes very well. So my suggestion.....Read the book, or at least listen to a sample of the reader to see whether you can at least stomach him.
