I enjoyed this book because I live in Austin and I have a great love for this city. Kinky is just hilarious and he has so many good stories. He knows everyone.
I would have liked this audiobook MUCH better if Kinky had read it. I was disappointed about that. The narrator mispronounced some Austin streets and that is just annoying. People here know that Manchaca is pronounced "Man-shack" and Guadalupe is "Guadaloop" and Burnet is "BURN-it," not "Bur-NETT."
I loved the narration of this book, and the tale was absorbing! I listen to books while I'm walking, and this one made me want to walk.
I have never written an Audible review before, but was compelled to write this one. I was hesitant to commit to a very lengthy unabridged book, but... wow. I couldn't put it down. I think it's good to warn people, however, that the content is disturbing-- children get brutally hurt, I'll just say that. The themes of loyalty and redemption are what make it so worthwhile. The author is the perfect person to read this work-- his pronunciations and obvious passion for the story really come through. The character development was excellent-- I felt I knew these people. I loved getting a sense of Afghanistan and learning more about the history and traditions. This is a GREAT read.
