    When Rhonda was a child - abandoned and ignored by his mother; abused and misguided by his mother's boyfriend - he imagined the rooms of his home drifting apart from one another like separating continents. Years later, after an embarassing episode as an adult, Rhonda's inner-child appears, leading him to a trapdoor in the bottom of a dumpster behind a taqueria that will force him to finally confront his troubled past.

    Catherine says: "Narration at times odd. Otherwise insanely good."

    Overall

    This book is insanely well written. I enjoyed every part of the imagery.
    I'm not one to ever complain about a voice/narrator. I normally love them even if other people didn't. In general this Ben was amazing... However, I must admit that I was constantly knocked out of my suspension of disbelief whenever he did a Female character voice.
    The way that this narrator does women would be perfect for an autobiography read by the author if the book was "Pee Wee Herman's Life Story"
    His take on women is comical... and albeit distracting, it does sort of work for the story.
    I hope Ben Rameaka was being directed to read this way and doesn't really think that this is how women sound. Its a tad bit demeaning.
    The book and story are worth the annoyance/comic relief though. SO listen anyway.
