it's incredible. wonderfully paced, great narrator, damn good story. I didn't want it to end.
this is just like the film with a bit more dialogue from the narrator. If you loved the movie, you will love the book.
I dug the hell out of it, but could have been spared the endless details about some of the characters and places. For example: the sewer. I didn't need the entire history of the sewer system while homeboy was escaping through it. Def. could have been spared a lot of details. that being said, I completely broke down and sobbed at the end. Just that good, just that penetrating. stunner of a book, for sure.
Fell in love with this book. I don't want to tell you about it, just want you to buy it and cherish it and love it as much as my daughter and I do.
excellent book, excellent first listen, love love loved it! and... I need to put more space in this review.... done!
buy it. it's cute, it's funny, and you will play it to your friends who have little kids.
the author was conflicted about being gay and wrote a book about a dude who was a total jerk. Got it, understood it, know what's going to happen the whole way through, don't really see how it is one of the 100 best books of all time. I recommend you listen to something else. Unless it's on sale for a buck or something.
I really enjoyed the story from beginning to end. Clever writing, lovable characters, very good book.
Cool story, kept me interested the entire time. The narration was awesome, the descriptions rocked, the philosophy killed, the pace was perfect, and I'm going to miss quite a few of the characters.
I never really got into it, although I wanted too. It's a funny idea, and could have been awesome, but after the initial laugh at hearing Biff curse and talk about sex I got bored and tuned in and out of the story until it was done. My over all rating is a big fat Meh.
