I have tried to read this book in paper no fewer than 3 times and could never get past about 30 chapters because the language always slowed me down to a crawl. There is a lot of colloquialism in the writing. Listening to it was a joy, however. I never needed to worry about interpreting the language incorrectly or go back for context.
I've not read or listened to another book like MD. I guess that's why it's such a classic.
If you're a fan of any pop culture, Moby is a must-listen! You'll find yourself thinking, "Hey, I've heard that before," or, "so that's where that came from!" Thoroughly enjoyable.
Never could get through much Shakespeare, but knew I should. This novelization was easy to listen to and compelling end to end.
