This book might be enjoyed by someone who likes a convoluted, and a never quite connected, story-line.
Yes. He did a great a great performance...the only redeeming thing about this purchase.
ALL of the footnotes! Ego-centric blather that did nothing to enhance the story in my opinion.
This is the first book I stopped listening to after the first part. I've been a member for a number of years and generally am very satisfied with the books I purchase. My mind wandered so much due to the boring rhetoric that I couldn't keep the characters straight and repeatedly had to rewind to review. Too much effort for little pay-off. Sorry to be so negative...but this was an epic yawn! Someday I may try to go back and start over...just on principle. I hate to leave a book unfinished.
The story concept was actually pretty engaging . Although, the overuse of trite expressions and analogies really bogged down the flow, at least for me. The main character, Work Pickins, was bland and spent a lot of time whining. Several times I actually said to my iPod, "Come on, get out of your freakin' vehicle and have some balls!"
Predictable storyline...I can live with that. But Amanda's cheesy southern drawl made me laugh out loud...to the point it distracted me from the story. It made her sound like a complete idiot who stumbled on the means to save her lover.....can't blame her for that...those sex scenes were hot! Overall, should be listed as a comedy.
