If you find yourself in the regrettable position to be divorcing someone with borderline or narcissistic personality disorder, or many of the most troublesome traits associated with these disorders, this book will help you prepare and cope.
This book was clever and well-written. I enjoyed seeing the world through the eyes of the main character and I really liked the author's writing style. The story was straight-forward and deep at the same time. It was fun picking out all the references to Rush songs/lyrics while I listened. I wasn't crazy about the narrator's voice. It wasn't bad, but I think someone with a little more warmth and inflection would have made this a better listen. The additional material at the end gave some interesting insight into how the book got written, so keep going and be sure to finish out the whole audiobook.
I haven't read any Steven King in years since I'm not a fan of high suspense or horror. However, I love reading alternate histories and this book was a real treat. It's well written and carefully thought out with just the right attention to detail. The ironic humor peppered throughout the story occasionally had me laughing out loud. The characters are well developed and it's nice "getting to know" them. The narrative grabbed my attention immediately and then I couldn't put it down. Sometimes after listening to a book this long I find the ending to be unsatisfying and this was not true with this book. It also gave me lots of food for thought and I continue to ponder issues raised even though I finished listening several weeks ago. I loved this book and I hope you will too!
