I enjoyed the writing and the humor.
The storyline unfortunately turns so dark that it’s not enjoyable. It’s a shame.

Way too much detail. This book could have been so much better. I am sad that it just couldn’t hold my attention.

This could have been a great book. The premise is really unpleasant but then predictable to a point.
Also, some of the “explanations” became pointless and boring.

Could not finish, even while increasing the audio speed. Don’t know why it gets such a good rating.

I was prepared to not enjoy this book, however,
I found it fascinating. Interesting. Unusual concepts to think about. I loved loved loved the narrator! Can’t find anything else narrated by him. Thanks.

It is a difficult book to listen to. The narration was sped up to make it difficult to understand. It was uncomfortable to listen to the narration sped up. I returned this book

I love Mr Burke’s descriptions. And his storylines are good although quite dark. I don’t believe I will read any more of his books, however, because of the extensive amount of time he spends pontificating about all of the things wrong with the world and the human race. This detracts from the books in my opinion. Also, I want to be entertained, not constantly bombarded with these negative thoughts.

This story was fun to follow, but the descriptions of feelings just went on and on and on. It was a shame. I had to speed it up and couldn’t wait for it to end. It could have been great but it ended up being mediocre.

This book brought me along with the author feeling her feelings and being in her powerful story. It was so beautifully written. It was so meaningful and pure. Wow! It was not at all what I expected and has had quite an impact on me. Thanks for this beautiful, funny,sad, moving book.

I found the writing laborious and wordy. The characters were way too obvious and predictable. I could not finish it.
