It is easy to see why this novel is a classic. The author did a great job at portraying the bleakness of the characters lives while tempering it with the unintentional humor from their folly and ignorance. Caldwell gives them dimension and makes them sympathetic despite themselves. Moreover, the narrator does an absolutely amazing job. One of the best audiobooks I've ever heard!
Academic style writing probably translates better in actual reading than in listening. Not especially hilarious, either. Just a cute idea.
