This is the novel that spurred my addiction to audiobooks. This is a powerfully human story. Lamb enables the reader to experience pain and joy, hope and despair, through his well developed characters. When I finished the very lengthy unabridged version, I felt a strong sense of loss, because I truly missed the characters. Also, his other novel is similarly moving.
You have to find out for yourself, why this book has been popular for decades. Despite its length, I was unable to stop listening because the story is so moving. It is a completely original story with well developed characters and situations.
I read the DiVinci Code first, so I was annoyed at the initial similarities. But I found this novel to be just as incredible and the narrator is exceptionally good, which really makes this novel one of the best Ive listened to.
I can truly say that this novel is one of the best Ive ever read. The story is both funny and touching, the characters are well developed, and more importantly, the narrator is animated and very clear.
