It struck me as a cross between Shakespeare's "Comedy of Errors" and Abbott and Costello's classic comedy routine "Who's on First?" I loved the cross talk and misunderstandings that led to Bob unwittingly becoming enmeshed in the shadowy world of contract killing! I really enjoyed the author's playful use of language and exploration of other languages and their interesting idioms.
I naturally identified with the protagonist, Bob, whose thoughts and actions make up the bulk of the book, but for reasons outlined below, I may have to go with Claus as my favorite character.
His diction (in terms of accent, inflection, intonation, speech-sound quality, enunciation) is impeccable. The emotional timbre he brought to the reading rang true and enhanced my appreciation of the story. May he receive many more opportunities to audibly bring to life books for audio-bookophiles like me.
They were all very colorful and therefore memorable, but I think Claus, the contract killer with a strict moral code, who retired as a simple exterminator of pesky bugs, who is looking for love but hates singles mixers, will always be emblematic of this book to me.
Enjoyed the story.
