Hearing the weird music at the beginning of this book, I thought I'd made a bad choice. But with nothing else to listen to, I kept listening. Within minutes I was captivated by the narrator and the writing. Funny, sad, exciting, inevitable. You'll feel like an expert on Budapest banks after this book. Loved it.
I had to stop listening. I'm not weak of stomach, but I felt dirty listening to the depravity.
Walters generously delivers behind-the-scenes gems. It's like having her alone for a 24-hour dinner party.
As a fan of CBS TV's 48-Hours, I love this book! Capote reveals details the human unconscious buries. His compassion for the people in this story is unbiased. No wasted space. Stunning.
I can't believe I survived this audiobook. The sing-song little boy character's voice was incredibly annoying. I stuck out the ordeal hoping something would happen. When something does, the author deals with it quickly, to move onto more excrutiatingly dull prose. Here's the summary. Not much happens, something happens, then a lot of nothing happens. The end. Ugh.
This is a funny piece. AA's will amaze their friends by memorizing some of the platitudes this guy reads. Otherwise, this did not enhance my sobriety except to make me smile and wince at some of the sayings.
