Brilliant, witty, bleak, but incisive perspective of contemporary India's caste system. The narrator is a unique character. Highly recommended. The narrator is fabulous - I became totally involved in the story.
I cannot say I loved this post-apocalyptic novel, it's too bleak and sad. I downloaded it because of McCarthy's reputation as a great story-teller & it's worth listening to just for the sheer experience of his skill as an author. However, the narrator over-dramatised the father and his son, reading emotions into the story I felt weren't there, and therefore making both characters unlikable. I could not separate the reading from the story. I believe the reading of the story should be almost invisible so one can lose oneself in the story. That never happened. Not for one minute did I feel captured within the story because of the way it was read.
A story full of humor and pathos that deals with the reality of aging with a twist and a comedic ending. Beautifully written. First rate narration.
