Nobody, about nothing.....

....in particular. An old classic, I've listened to multiple times. I'm not quite sure what the draw of this story is to me. It's a bit hard to explain even what it's about. I guess I'll just say that it's sort of written as a diary of an ordinary guy living an ordinary life. There are no big surprises and no fantastic ending. Just well written in an odd sort of way. It's got a bit of mild humor tossed in, but as far as anything major, I can't pinpoint anything. I just like the book.
The narrator does a nice job with this one also, so if you're looking for a pleasant book with no violence, bad language, or action, then this is the book for you. It also makes great bedtime listening.

Absolutely lovely

At first I was not impressed, but I kept listening. Very glad I did. The narration was divine and added so much fun to the story. I will definitely be listening again!
