The dry detachment of the hero is instantly and utterly likeable. Many of the secondary characters -- especially the villains -- are also memorable.
Reminded me a little of Vonnegut (more so Sirens of Titan than Slaughterhouse Five) and several reviewers have commented on ties with Forest Gump. The narrator's quirky interpretations of events are very reminiscent of young hero in the Swedish film, My Life as a Dog.
Captured the tone of the book perfectly.
A really fun listen! I gave four-stars to the story only because of a few less than credible plot twists, but frankly I feel horribly pedantic for being that fussy.
