I rarely if ever write reviews since most of what I read or listen to is not worth the time. This story was however, a wonderful surprise. In addition to having quite a unique and intriguing concept, the execution was excellent as well as the narration.
An old idea was given a new perspective and that concept was developed very well. Additionally, it provided me with a very interesting view of life in Sweden.
This narrator is by far the best I've heard out of the dozens of audiobooks I've listened to over the years. He had the ability to very naturally transition from character-to-character without "overdoing" any of them. He was also one of the most accurate readers I've heard. I could not identify even one word mis-spoken or mis-read.
I listen to audiobooks during my sometimes long commutes to and from work everyday. There were many days I found myself losing track of how I made it into work or home going on "autopilot" for the drive while paying in-depth attention to the book. There were also many-a-evening where I sat in my garage for a time listening until my wife popped-in to let me know dinner was ready.
All-in-all, an excellent listen. I'm certain that in the not too distant future I will be listening to this story again which I've never done with any other audiobook.
