The book obviously has appeal, as evinced by the Broadway musical based on it, and by its best seller status. It is much darker and more thought provoking than the musical, however. That being said, I have yet to finish it. My attention keeps straying, and because of its excrutiating detail and tight plot, I find myself re-listening to the same part. The narrator is good, but as the majority of the book focuses on female characters, his deep voice can be distracting.
Should you buy this? I don't know. I won't get another of his books, but I think that if I finished it - I'd be glad I did. Listen to the sample, and see what you think.
