being raised catholic, this was "pee your pants" hysterical! it was deeply insightful on the general, everday human condition, as well. i am getting all her books. exactly what an audiobook should be, no matter how you were brought up. i wish it was longer.
i'm on the fence on this one. good story, imaginative, original, but somewhat hard to follow and a anticlimatic ending, which was disappointing.
smart arguments, but painful to listen to. it was as if it was a late-night infomercial, redundantly re-stating how the author was right and the others were wrong. a good argument, but excruciating to hear them say it.
pretty interesting and original, wordy and a little obscure, but entertaining.
Let me put it this way: I studied the plot? (a very loosely tied string of happenings, if you ask me), and found no deeper meaning. I listened to the narrator, and found no poetic prose. I understand it's supposed to be the story of someone's life, and there is no real meaning in a life, however; I just don't get it, what are we reading all this for? I kept waiting for the punch line, or the redeeming message. ... and then, well, my reward for my time and persistence? ...not so much. (lol) Did I mention I don't get it? live and learn...
i always feel like there is something strange about our need for morbid details of horrific crimes. however; the author is actually working toward a better future, and i was engrossed by all the details as well.
i enjoyed the perspective of the narrator, especially the many vignettes in the main character's life. ...the links between them were somewhat weak and unexplained, however; i disagree with the reviews that say the book wasn't worthwhile. i enjoyed it a great deal, and i'm a tough sell.
