This was one of the best audio books I've listened to. The narrator was fantastic, doing a variety of different accents really well. The story was interesting and engaging, (although at times it felt like it strayed a little too far from topic and the characters rants became a bit tedious). At times it was laugh out loud hysterical. The language is probably what set this book apart for me -- the dialects, colloquialisms, and plenty of Bengali and English cursing - just funny. But more than that...thought provoking and enlightening -- I felt like I learned a lot about what it feels like to be an immigrant, always a stranger where you live. The author does a terrific job of presenting several differing and relatively extreme viewpoints on God/religion, which I did not expect and enjoyed.
It's quite long, which I also liked - the main story covers about 20 years or so, but there is also a great deal of character history (Bengal, India, Pakistan, Jamaica) included too. It's a fun ride - worth the time.
