Some of this is very funny, but in the end, it just wasn't for me. I guess am too jaded to listen to stories about boys and young men's troubles with girls. I kept cringing like I do to some sitcoms. Somehow I thought it would be more metaphorical...
"Lila" works beautifully as an audio book. And Lila is such a beautifully written character. I am sure I enjoyed it more because I have already read Gilead. It's also a meditation on loneliness, universalism and the people we cannot do without. If you're in a reflective, elegiac mood, this is a great book.
