I could not force myself to finish listening. Terrible, drawn out dialogue. Such a waste of time.

I cannot say enough. Even for the wealth and creativity of the insults... Raw and beautiful! Hugely entertaining.

Well...

If you really like your hero to be an underdog who triumphs despite a long chain of crushingly stupid decisions, this is your book.

Oh, and if you get a lot of pleasure from guessing the outcome correctly at the very start, the author leaves enough neon flashing hints - you’ll get it.

Very much depends what you are after

A beautiful book. Plausible and bleak.
So if you want a creative and moving look at enduring human spirit in the face of near hopelessness, this is for you.

If you want to feel uplifted, try something else.
