Of course I would recommend it, however you should listen alone or at least not in mixed company.
Not what I excepted, and not very comfortable.
Niccola, was great, and so was Keith, and Guy, but the writer Sam was my favorite.
Many laugh out loud for many seconds, parts, and a few stop the recording and pull over to laugh moments, really too many list.
I don't usually go for novels from the English 80s but this one does nicely with the time period, and language. However it is dark and uncomfortable, I don't mind telling someone I know will not and has not read this or anything like this, but I don't know that I would want to admit to someone who was familiar with the work how much I enjoyed it, guilty indulgence or symptom of a diseased mind.
the characters are not, character I mean. I don't care about any of them at all, they might as well be strangers that I am waiting to watch leave the stage so the story can start.
What genre is this? Not drama, not comedy, not action. As I understand it this is one of those novels that are suppose to have a larger meaning, social Darwinism, or individualism, or objectivitsm, or whatever drivel the author was trying to hit you over the head with. Long boring round about speeches. too many villains to keep track of and no hero at all.
narration was the best part of this book.
So the hero gets the girl at the end, well not much of a hero gets not much of a girl, as a matter of fact we have an entirely different name to describe this heroine in upstate NY, however putting it in print only brings me down to the level of the story I have grudgingly listened to.
Brilliant, this is one of the most engrossing books I have ever been involved with in any form in my life. I had no idea how it was suppose to sound until I heard it here. Bravo! Bravo!
