The further into the story the more engaged I became. At first I thought the story was just ok. The more I listened the more endearing the accent and British colloquialisms became. I became more enamoured with the narrator- both author's voice and the reader's physical voice won me over. It was an easy, enjoyable, humorous, and educational listen.
Neil Strauss is an excellent story-teller and this particular book lends itself to an audio version quite well. This is because the story itself is incredibly compelling and as Strauss tells it, he moves the story along. When reading a book, I tend to skim parts that are uninteresting to me or seemingly irrelevant to the main plot. In an audio book, I just lose the story and my mind drifts. My mind did not wander away from this story at any point, I was riveted and very disappointed when the book ended. I liked that the author narrated his own story. He has some distinctive enunciations that take some getting used to, but after while they become endearing.
