"This is a funny, human story that will give Albert's admirers a ringing jingle bell romp." (Publishers Weekly)
This book never clicked with me, mostly because the reading left me cold. It's not just a case of the accent or voice, but the delivery seems flat and the story wasn't compelling enough to rescue it.
I have read other books by this author and enjoyed them more than when listening to this one. The story takes place in Texas and the readers accent was just wrong for this book. All in all the book dragged for me - not sure if it was just the reader or the story, or a combination of both.
Reading this book would be better than listening to it. The reason I finished listening is I was on an 800 mile drive with no other book on my iPod.
The narrator's attempt at a Texan accent was painful. Add to that all the
I started out to give the book 2 stars and realized the story itself was a lot better than that despite the poor reading. Listen to the sample before buying and see what you think.
