Hilarious satire combined with warm sympathetic characters. The satire is funny but never cruel--difficult balance to maintain but Russo pulls it off. Delicious send-up of pompous college administrators and members of the college English department. Even when Russo is at his satiric best, almost all of the characters, though flawed, are presented as sympathetic complex human beings. I laughed alot--sometimes so hard that I had to stop listening. All in all, a wonderfully entertaining, intelligent and humane book--highly recommend.
Great characters and plot--perfect for listening during commute. Hope uunabridged version is available.
Reads like a bad parody of Robert Parker--and this is coming from a Robert Parker fan. Instead try "All our Yesterdays" and "Early Autumn"--two of Parker's earlier (and much better) books.
Terrific plot and characters, plus beautiful writing and narration. Impossible to put down! Audible, please offer other books by the authors.
This book has everything--terrific writing, characters and suspense. Couldn't stop listening--can't reccommend enough.
Give this a try if you're in the mood for good laughs and an intelligent, thoughtful and well-written novel. Excellent narration.
Couldn't put it down--characters you care about--beautifully written--hilarious and sad. It is at the top of my list of reccommended books.
Plot & characters not believable, doesn't work even as a "beach book".
What's always drawn me to Kellerman's books are first his characters' relationships and second the mystery. This book disappointed on both fronts.
