I could not stop listening to this amazing sci-fi story. The listener needs to pay attention to the dialogue, nonetheless it is quite entertaining.

This book would make you think a lot about!

I enjoyed the narrator and the changes in the voices. Not boring at all. I hope that part 2 is as good as part 1.

In this jaw-dropping, darkly comedic memoir, a young woman comes of age in a dysfunctional Asian family whose members blamed their woes on ghosts and demons when in fact they should have been on antipsychotic meds.

Although the subject is about mental disease (a serious subject...), I found this audiobook quite entertaining.

I do not know if this is a comedy, but there are a lot of funny anecdotes in her story. Some people might find her family and the author to be insensitive, but everything gets explained better as the story carries on. It also give a scope about Vancouver.

I particularly liked the dad. He was so crude and it made me laugh. The narrator is very good too particularly her accents!

It is a good book for those that like dark humour... like me!
