©1995 Richard Ford; (P)1998 RECORDED BOOKS
Another great book from Richard Ford. Every one in the Frank Bascombe series is excellent. I don't understand how every review is not 4-5 stars. If I'm not mistaken it won the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN-Faulkner Award. Richard Poe's narration is excellent too.
After reading "Canada" I downloaded this book. This was very different in style. I did enjoy it but found it repetitive and overly long.
Self-absorption; self examination. I finally stopped listening to this at the middle of the third section as it made me so depressed. If this is "real life-like" we are all doomed!! I think the human race is better than this, but I may be wrong according to this book's reviews.
Really wanted to love this book.. and I kept waiting, but it never developed to me. Nicely written, and you really get to know the main character, but I kept thinking, "so what?" I expected more.
This is without a doubt the worst book I have purchased from Audible and I have purchased over 100 books. There was no redeeming feature to this book. The reading was as bad as the writing. Don't waste your money.
