This book takes you on a journey of soul searching for yourself. You understand the importance of a simple bite of food, the generousity of friends, the power of the universe. The character development is suberb and the narrator is what makes this book incredible. I am convinced it is better to listen to the story as opposed to reading it. I cannot imagine anyone attempting to make this into a movie since it would diminish the sheer work of ones imagination. Do yourself a favor and read/listen to it.
I found myself distracted by the narrator and the lack of creativity in the book. I wonder if the audio version makes it more difficult to connect? Not sure. At any rate, I did not finish it since I felt I had heard this whining before and was bored. Spend your time with another book.
I was surprised at how much the narrator added to the success of this book. I found myself easily looking forward to listening as much as possible. You can visualize the south through the authors' great writing. Very good character development and plot tension. Do not underestimate the beauty of this book. You will feel better for reading it.
