I had an extra Audible Listener credit that was about to expire and I saw this book which I vaguely recall somebody having recommended it a long time back. So I took a chance and bought it. What a pleasant surprise! Anthony Bordain is an absolute hoot. And his writing -- which is already excellent -- is made all the better by his witty delivery. Don't worry that it's a book about the restaurant business (I frankly had no interest in the topic either)... just sit back and enjoy listening to this. You won't be sorry.
Most people dedicate their reviews to the writing, but let me use this space to put in a big plug for the narration. Kevin Gray does a fantastic job of reading this great story, and the voices that he creates for the characters are very convincing. I did a search for his name on Audible and was sorry to see that he's done only the Otori Trilogy. He should do more!
This is a fabulous book, made all the better with Ann Coulter as the narrator. Her narration captures all of the wit and sarcasm that no narrator but the author could deliver. Those on this page who criticize her for what they consider hypocritical use of hyperbole and name-calling miss the very point she is trying to make: that these cheap tactics are employed far too often by the left-leaning media. Whether you agree with her or not, nobody can deny that it is very entertaining, fun to listen to, and impeccably narrated.
