Yes, I enjoyed the book, and I plan to continue the series.
Absolutely anyone else, thank you.
Oh, my. Anytime any character was read with an American accent, they sounded instead as if they had a mental disability, their words were spoken with such flat tone and slowed speech. I believe the man put marbles in his mouth in order to attempt the accent. I may try to get a job as a book reader myself if they are handing them out so readily.
The story is unremarkable, giving way to the terribly obvious attempts at proper elocution from the narrator. I do not recommend.
The story line and narration are fabulous - you won't be able to put this one down!

Philippa Gregory does it again. Using a fictional character enables her to track two well known women in history in the same book - Queen Mary and Princess Elizabeth. Great narration.
A great book on many levels. Interesting subject, great characters, and very well read. I highly recommend!
This is not one of my favorite Philippa Gregory books, but it is entertaining enough. That said, I would have enjoyed it much more if the narration had not been so shrill.
As you listen to this book you can't help but start to feel that you know this main character like a friend and when the book ends you feel as if you've lost one. I couldn't stop listening and rooting for him the entire time. You'll grieve when it's over.
I did not like this book. If you want something that will haunt you because it's gross, then read it.
Jon spares no one, least of all himself. The stories are all refreshingly funny and had me laughing alone in my kitchen.
I read this book before seeing the movie, and I am so glad that I did because the two are really nothing like each other. The book delves deeper into the clinical relationship between Patrick and his psychiatrist, as well as his relationships with his family and friends. Really, all relationships in the book had more layers, which became a more two dimensional in the movie. If you already saw the movie, you won't be bored by the book, which even has a different ending.
