The ponderous delivery of his own work ruins this otherwise worthwhile "listen". The needless and constant repetition of "quote" "end quote" simply adds to the misery. The only way I managed to finish the book was by speeding up the play back which the makes the rendition bearable.
This book is not so much about the characters or the storyline but rather about the incredible wealth of detail that shape their environs.
If you prefer edited of abridged versions of books this is not for you. Those of us who listened to the book here in Europe found the information on modern U.S. college life to be fascinating - even if a little exaggerated .
The narration by Dylan Baker is excellent and hopefully he will record further works.
A true masterwork and a superb "listen".
