I read the other reviews and generally agree that the characters didn't become important to me but that if I were going through cultural changes, the book would probably mean a lot more.
I just wonder if Tyler's characters are sometime too real for me -- the normal stuff of daily life and relationships but not people who make me think or wonder about things. I loved the Accidental Tourist but that might have been because George Guidall narrated it exceptionally well.
George Guidall is, as always, fantastic. I'm always amazed at how he does it. I am one who enjoys Craig Johnson's descriptive style most of the time. I was thinking as I listened that I like books that have characters I like hanging out with. Novels work that way for me -- leave my world for a little while and hang out in their's. That was true until about Ch. 12 when things got a little wierd for my preferences but this is a great book. The mix of Western culture with Phili history was a big plus for me.
