The story concept was actually pretty engaging . Although, the overuse of trite expressions and analogies really bogged down the flow, at least for me. The main character, Work Pickins, was bland and spent a lot of time whining. Several times I actually said to my iPod, "Come on, get out of your freakin' vehicle and have some balls!"
This book might be enjoyed by someone who likes a convoluted, and a never quite connected, story-line.
Yes. He did a great a great performance...the only redeeming thing about this purchase.
ALL of the footnotes! Ego-centric blather that did nothing to enhance the story in my opinion.
This is the first book I stopped listening to after the first part. I've been a member for a number of years and generally am very satisfied with the books I purchase. My mind wandered so much due to the boring rhetoric that I couldn't keep the characters straight and repeatedly had to rewind to review. Too much effort for little pay-off. Sorry to be so negative...but this was an epic yawn! Someday I may try to go back and start over...just on principle. I hate to leave a book unfinished.
