This narrator was the perfect pairing for this work of literature. I found his voice soothing, his reading hypnotic and don't think it could have been done any better if Haruf himself had narrated it.
As for the book, the second in a three book series set in fictional Holt, CO, it absolutely delighted me. It's a quiet book, but Haruf was a quiet writer. That was his brilliance. The subtleties of character and deeply moving circumstances of those in the book are a study in humanity. Haruf wasn't given to flourish in his plot lines but he made up for it in his keen sense of the dark and light elements in all of us.
