Wonderfully revealing. The audio is great. McCourt has many songs and poems in his work that he sings as he narrates. Listening to the audio mimics sitting down for tea with McCourt and listening to him tell his story. Amazing.
At the start, I was bored and unimpressed with the book. As it continued, I found myself immersed in a vivid world where money brings the freedom to live forever. The questions raised by this possibility are haunting, and our protagonist uncovers some interesting things.
Although it was an intriguing ghost story I found it difficult to enjoy the characters - except, of course, Martin. The characters seemed, to me, to be from another universe where childhood selfishness never ends. Maybe Audrey Niffenegger is asking us to look at the obsessions and compulsions inside of ourselves - we who think we're normal.
