Perhaps the success of his previous books made someone think that his fans would enjoy his sardonic tales of growing up gay in a very disfunctional family. What I hoped would be wry observations come across as detatched and bored, or even self-pitying. Try his other books.
I am beginning to suspect the reader is a machine. Today (or was it yesterday?) he actually said 'now here' when the story read 'nowhere'. And he constantly mispronounces the Koch brothers' name. I know a 'cold read' can be a real challenge, but isn't this guy supposed to be a professional?
