I have not read the print version, but I believe having the voices doing a bit of accent / dialect make it much better than anything I could envision in my own mind.
This is like seeing Animal Farm or 1984 come alive. The sad part is that so much of it was based on research, that this could possibly be the life some people have to live, or at least an approximation of it, since it is fiction after all.
The intonation for the speaker announcements and the character voices were very colorful.
It is hard to pick any singular moment in the book. The main character is very touching, and it is difficult to stop listening, even though you know his life is essentially a long train wreck....the power of the story keeps you listening, and a curiousity about how this character can rise above everything that comes his way and yet continue to develop, and maintain his essential goodness and humanity in spite of it all.
