I don't understand all the reviews that says this book is boring. Maybe everyone wants a thriller these days. Its not a thriller, but a compelling story about an American family that was both hilarious and sad at times. The writer is a master at providing the imagery needed to get to know the characters. Definitely one of the best books I have listened to in a long time.
I really enjoyed this book. You need a bit of dry humor, dysfunctional family to truly appreciate it. I loved his perspective from the the mind of the demented father. A good book if you have a darker view of the world.
Boring and incomprehensible. I stopped listening halfway through. Maybe it got better later? I just didn't care.
Some books should be read and not listened to...this is one of them. Rich characters and story line.
I found this book hard to get into. It certainly was not what I was expecting. That being said I found it mildly entertaining but it was difficult to keep all the characters straight.
YAAAAWWWWNNN!!! I found myself mesmerized by the monotonous sound of the narrators voice. I forced myself to finish the first disc - hoping for a story that would pull me in, but I couldn't bear any more. I have sent it back after listening to just the first disc. Such a disappointment because now I have to wait for my next two selections. :-(
I found this book to be beautifully written and highly entertaining. The ending was perfect and memorable. Action packed this book is not, but it's not meant to be. This is a story about family, not the happy-Disney kind, but the messy, real and hugely funny kind.
Boring,boring, boring. I kept waiting for the fragmented plot/story line? to come together with no results. What a sad dysfunctional family. I listenied to the entire book waiting for it to get better, come together, make sense, something!! It never did. This book did let me know that talent is not required to publish a book.
Not easy to follow and quiet boring at times. The review makes it sound much better than it actually is. Would not recommend unless desperate for something to listen to.
This book was soooo boring. I couldn't finish it.
Kept waiting for a story, a plot, a something. Never happened. Would not recommend.
Very happy this was abridged. The author wrote this as if he were in a high school creative writing class - lots of meaningless, descriptive words of endless variety. Kept waiting for it to end, thinking something of interest would happen. It didn't.
Glad this was the abridged version. Plot seemed very fragmented. It was not enjoyable to try to keep up with, so after struggling to hang on through Disc 3, returned the set without finishing.
