The first time I listened, I liked the reader, but not the story. Listened again because I lost everything else on my device on a trip, and appreciated the humor much more. If you can divorce yourself from the seriousness of the topic, you'll laugh...maybe even snort! The show "Dexter" is the same genre - if you like that, you'll like this.
The book is read well, but the format is better suited to a "waiting room" or "bathroom" book - where you're only reading snipets at a time. It's funny, and the reader's voices are great, but one-liners don't make for a great listen.
My daughter recommended this book to me - and I LOVE it. The story is the perfect mix of plausible and what we wish for, the characters are real and likeable, and the author's use of humor to cope with sadness makes this a favorite! The reader has a great delivery (though my daughter disagreed - she read the print version and "heard" something else in her head). Listen or read - it's a fantastic book!
