Incredibly honest and detailed memories of childhood. The audio book is over 4 hours in and Jagmeet hasn't finished high school yet. I'm not sure how I feel about it. It is a very descriptive in-depth insight into the moods and experiences of Jagmeet's individual childhood, but definitely not what I expected, especially some of the intimate/traumatic revelations. Perhaps too much detail, not only of perhaps troubling descriptions but of all the everyday movements.

Is the character one achieves after coming out of childhood the important thing to know, or, are all the details of what one experienced while developing of added benefit to know. I suppose I won't suspect The Honourable Mr Singh of speaking untruthfully in parliament after his ability to be so vulnerable and honest in this book.

mmmm.....I will add more to this review later.

Such a shame. Even though there was a few female narrators, some female voices were spoken by a whiny nasal male. That voice was difficult to listen to representing a man, what to speak of women. It ruined a wonderful story, The philosophy was interesting and deep. Why ruin it with frantic, whiny, rough voices. I really hope these last few books are redone with pleasing narration.
