I chose this book because it was on Neil Gaiman's recommended list, and I'm beginning to get the idea his tastes are a little darker than mine. The minotaur and the characters that surround him are flawed, and ultimately very human, but events unfold in a way that made me squirm, always anticipating the next thing that was going to wrong, or the next encounter he was going to have with a character who behaved badly, or the next irrevocable bad decision the minotaur would make. The ending was redemptive, so I'm not sorry I listened, but it made me uncomfortable enough while it played out that I'm not sure I can call the experience enjoyable.
The narrarator was terrific, and did a great job voicing all the characters, especially the one who speaks the least, the minotaur himself.
