I love this book, but I wish I'd listened to the sample before wasting a credit on the audio version. Zackman reads as if the entire thing is an obituary -- as if someone told her "read it with feeling" and the only feeling she could dredge up was sorrow. Lackey writes with wry humor and wit. Her storytelling grabs you and sweeps you along on an amazing, fantastical ride. Zackman's dragging, mournful reading made me turn off the book in disgust before the end of the first chapter. I could read it better. Such a disappointment.
