    With The Sportswriter, in 1986, Richard Ford commenced a cycle of novels that, 10 years later, after Independence Day won both the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award, was hailed by The Times of London as "an extraordinary epic [that] is nothing less than the story of the 20th century itself." Now, a decade later, Frank Bascombe returns, with a new lease on life (and real estate), and more acutely in thrall to life's endless complexities than ever before.

    Daniel says: "Richard Ford, get out of my mind!"

    Overall

    A fantastic book. It contains all segments of real, ordinary life. All people who read this book can find all sorts of events that they themselves have been experiencing.
    The book deals with death, humour, embarrasment,
    guilt, joy, yearning and so on.
    Those who read it have to be patient and can not expect any suspence or "drama".
    This is a book where the reader just have to listen intently to all the details given along the way.
    To me this book should belong with the "classics".

    "My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole. I get excessively drunk at inappropriate times, disregard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore the consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers, sleep with more women than is safe or reasonable, and just generally act like a raging dickhead. But, I do contribute to humanity in one very important way: I share my adventures with the world."

    Jean-Claude says: "okay... ummm"

    Overall

    The book is read far to fast for me. I can hardly keep up with the reader pace.
    The reader also needs to pronounce the words more thoroughly.
    I have listened to six other books so far and I found them to be excellent in all aspects.
