This is classic, I am having a mid life crisis kind of book and that is the way the bizarre tale tracks. A great story and god knows don't we all need a little of that sometimes.
"brilliant book, well read"
Having read the book, I wondered what listening to it would give, but this is a well chosen narrator whose reading does the book definite justice.
This is well worth a listen, and a read. A book that gives you faith and hope to start over again.
"lovely, tender, unusual, heatfelt, warm"
I thing this was a bit of a hopeful requiem for a world Homes would like to live in. It was a story about redemption and second chances. A story for the mostly hopeless and minorly hopeful that real and enduring change is possible. It was a tender and warm story about trying again and awakening and I really really liked it. It was delivered with humor, irony (where necessary) and without a trace of schmaltz...considering it was a totally feel good story ultimately. It was really hopeful and inspiring too and probably has the power to change the lives of a few people who read it. It's power is that there is a really good message disguised in a engrossing, realistic, funny story.
