Even tho this was "written" by a completely fictional character, you never get the impression that it isn't real.
I'm not sure that I've EVER come across a book comparable to this book. Sure, I've read and listened to some other great books. It's just that none of them came from this perspective. :-)
Nothing about his narrative took away from the storyline. It just flowed as a good story should. His performance was "spot-on". You're never distracted by thoughts of how bad or how good the narrator is. It's after you've listened to a truely great performance that you can fully appreciate just how well the narrator did.
"and you thought imaginary friends aren't real..."
If this book ever makes it to the big screen, I will DEFINITLY be going to the theater. No waiting around for it to be out on DVD.
This book had humor as well as sadness in it but in the end, you come away from it with that warm, fuzzy feeling.
I really enjoyed listening to this audible book. The story-telling was great, the narrators spot on. Actually helped make riding through Hurricane Irene and 24 hours without power almost painless. :)
