The narrators were great. Although I couldn't bring myself to like Clair or Jonathan I could picture them well in my mind. The best thing I can say about the story is, if you ever think your life is screwed up listen to the lives of these losers and you'll feel much better. These people make suicide seem like a viable option.
The ending when I felt so much better about my life.
Alice getting high and enjoying her life for a brief moment.
It held my interest in the hope that Jonathan woud dump the hag, get a real man and have a life.
Other drivers will wonder why you are laughing out load at red lights and maybe a few tears in some parts. My most entertaining audio purchase so far. I'm sure it will get a second listen in a few months.
Narcissism to the hilt.
Seth. The only character in the story that had his feet on the ground.
When Seth dumped Craig. You go boy!
No. Listened in the car. Small doses were better.
Amazing listening to someone who actually thinks nothing of taking advantage of others to reach thier own goals while expecting thier attention, admiration and positive reinforcement. It was a real insight into the mindset of such people and their relentless climb to emptyness. I felt empathy for most of the people in the story. Craig seemed to have less perception of the direction to happieness at the end than he did in the beginnig of the book. I kept listening with the hope for the start of a "happily ever after" story.On the lighter side, it brought back memories of the times I had been to The Follies and it was fun to get a back of the house perception.
Provided a view of the world as it could be if everyone were free to be who they are.
Paul because of the way he was always self adjusting yet accepting of who he is.
This was the 1st book I have listened to where each character had a differnt reader. Made for great listening. Really brought the story to life.
I bought this based on reviews because I was in a hurry to leave for a road trip and needed something to listen to. Being more than 30 years out of high school, I thought I would have no interest. This enlightened look at what the world could be without hate kept me glued to car stereo.
