I rarely take the time to recommend an audio book, but it this case I must. Cormac McCarthy's usual grimness is elevated to art not just by his majestic writing but by the spot-on narration. I cannot imagine that reading this could have even half the impact of listening to it. Go listen.
True, sad, enlightening, maddening, uplifting. Sorry, I couldn't stop at three.
Absolutely, but it would have been bad for my blood pressure.
Before reading, I mean hearing this book, I'd never considered fly-fishing, but now....
The book is original, clever, and bitingly funny. Thoughtful, too. The elegant writing is matched by the reading and production. The readers/actors did a wonderful job of accents and expressions. I may listen to it again just for the pleasure of it.
This was my introduction to Paul Torday, taken up at the recommedation of a friend. I'm going to look for more of his work right now.
