Having read Empire Falls and Nobody's Fool before listening to this book
I would reccomend one of those two first. This book does create memorable characters but I came away with the impression of a kind of mid-life crisis book. I really enjoy this author. This is not a action oriented book but is worth listening because of his strength as a writer.
This was a great listen and the story had creepy moments. I wonder if there is a trend to use more than one narrator as it seemed awkward in a couple spots. Also I hope the use of music in these books doesn't become more prevlant. I generally look for longer books and this book was well worth it even though I wouldn't have chosen this title I'm glad it was recommended to me.
Having a different actor for each character really added to this story which was very enjoyable. A lot of humor in the story in fact the most since Nobody's fool. You will not be disapointed in the audio.
The author reading helps with pronuciation. He creates images you keep with you. A little scattershot but on the whole definately worth listening too.
