The information presented was quite interesting and the author has a knack for presenting the events of the time and the people involved with a dramatic tension that captures your attention. Unfortunately, I found that I could not finish listening to even the first part due to the unremitting negativity and bleakness. Perhaps it lightens up later on, I shall never know..it was such a relief to call it quits that I can't imagine taking it up again. The subject matter is fascinating and well worth exploring, but this particular book might well put you off the topic and people involved...unless you're enjoy the works of Samuel Beckett, of whom this author reminds me.
Keith Szarabajka does for Tom Robbins what film maker Peter Jackson did for J.R.R.Tolkien. It's the original but Szarabajka brings ever so much more depth, pacing and characterization to the novel that just reading the book yourself (which I did years ago) seems drier and less fulfilling by comparison. Tom Robbins fans, rejoice! Encore! Encore!
