Yes. I enjoyed this book tremendously. It is a fascinating bird's eye view into a world most of us will never see. I loved the narrator's voice and the voices he used for each of the various characters. The author is so gifted and her characterizations of each person are so tenderly drawn and engaging. I couldn't put the book down. If you liked the movie Slum Dog Millionaire, I think you will love this story too.
I enjoyed this book immensely. It was a great story with great characters and plenty of exciting plot twists and turns. Hope Davis' performance was FABULOUS too! I highly recommend this.
I was attracted to this book thinking it would be funny but I assure you it is not. I also admit that I didn't finish the book, but I didn't because it just got too depressing for me to listen to anymore, not because it wasn't well written or a great story. I found the author's writing style to be pure genius and had the story been a bit lighter, I would have LOVED it.The author actually reads the book too and is good but her tone and style gets monotonous after awhile, adding to the unrelenting depressing quality of the book.
