I loved how the story starts in childhood and gradually transitions to a much more complex adult story full of fascinating characters who are often over-looked in society. Each chapter can stand alone, it is so tightly woven.
I have not listened to any of MO's other performances, but compared to other readings I have heard, his voice was amazing and so well-paced. Of course the story itself is as good or better than his previous books.
The pacing of his voice was especially important as I was buying the audiobook version for my 87 yr old mother who has had a stroke. She can't speak, but her mind is all there and so MA's strong male voice in her life is special I think! Many of the other audiobooks i tried sounded busy/chattery. I wanted a complex story that was told at a decent pace.
