Absolutely delightful

I enjoyed every second of this audiobook. The writing is simply superb: rich, candid, subtly ironic, seemingly effortless. Almost needless to say, the characters are portrayed to perfection, with psychological and emotional depth. In short, I can't find a bad word to say about this book.

I should also note that Grover Gardner, as usual, delivers an impeccable and sensitive performance, never missing the subtle nuances in the text and bringing the book to life.

Highly recommended.
