"Shale's performance is brilliant." (USA Today)
"Reader Kerry Shale captures every nuance and distinction of the many personalities involved." (Boston Globe)
"This production gains much from Shale's excellent and lively performance....Shale makes it sincere, hilarious, heartbreaking, and delightful....His gifted reading, full of emphasis, inflection, and excitement, is a joy to listen to." (Publishers Weekly)
This book is well written and expertly narrated. Lots of fun to listen to. I listen while commuting to work, so could hardly wait to get back in the car each day to find out what was going to happen next. Highly recommended.
I really enjoyed this book, the twists and turns of Ram Mohammad
Thomas's life, although fictional gave me an insight to the nonfictional lives of poor children in India. Recommended
I am a long-time listener, and this is the first audio book I felt compelled to review. The story is good or even great. Clever and captivating...But (as noted by others) the best was the narrator--indeed, the best icing I have ever had on an audible cake! Phenomenal.
As soon as I finished the book (and got over my devestation that it was over), I wanted to listen again.
A great story. With loads of twists and turns. Funny and poignant.
And yes, Kenny Shale's performance is fantastic.

I looked forward to listening to this book but gave up after the first few chapters. While the story was tragic, every bit of tragedy related to terrible sexually dysfunctional relationships: incest, male rape, and on and on. Not what I was expecting from an "off-beat novel, a blend of high comedy and touching melancholy." The content of the book should have been more clearly described in the review. A waste of a purchase.
