I read this book years ago and love it. I was disappointed in the movie although my wife loved it.
the reader read EVERY line with a whiny sarcastic tone that was hard to listen to. instead of identifying with him I was hoping someone would shoot him asap
This is a very enjoyable listen with enough originality to keep it for being predictable.
The people are the written well enough that you can imagine meeting them on the street.
Never a dull moment
Some need to have everything explained to them with alot of action and movement. This book is like stepping into a real, working culture. It doesnt explain itself, doesnt define its idiomatic expressions or its history to the visitor like a museam exhibit, It just IS and you are left to figure it out. It is like dropping yourself into a foreign country and getting to know it without an interpreter. I loved it.
The reader either makes or breaks a audio book. This one's broken. Redo from start or just delete this version.
