I would. I really enjoyed John Slattery's performance, and the characters are believable and real and sad.
I really like character development more than plot, and the people in this story seemed well-rounded, believable, complex in their motivations, and varied. Having said that, there were plenty of plot developments as well.
He has a great voice, and he deals with the Italian well. He also doesn't overdo emotion in his narration, which is particularly well suited for the narrating character.
Don't want to spoil it, but the ending.
I am glad I listened to this book because it was cited by a couple other authors whose work I enjoyed (Apparently this book is somewhat influential). But while the central ideas and themes were very interesting, the presentation frequently was not. The author does not have Malcolm Gladwell's gift for writing, and sometimes comes across as trying too hard to be like him.
