This is a lift up your spirits story. With it's share of grief and joy it is a wonderful listen. I think the narration was great with all the characters having their distinctive voices.
The main character is adorable, although he might remind you of Forrest Gump, at least a bit. There are some plot holes, but are minor. Overall I'd definitely recommend it.
Hands down the best thing about this book is Alfred Mona's performance. That being said the book has it's pros and cons.
Both a pro and a con is the story. Some great characters are lost in the plot and are never picked up again, and there are major plot holes. However the twists are unexpected and fun, some will have you squealing with delight while some others will have you rolling your eyes at your mp3 device. I said "really, really??" out loud a number of times.
Another pro is that the story was crafted by wonderful authors, although some transition more smoothly than others chapter to chapter.
Another con is the ending. Without spoiling it, it is terribly cinematic to be good.
Will I recommend it? Definitely. It is a great companion while in the car and before bed.
