Book #33 for #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks.
I wanted to participate in the #TomeTopple read-a-thon and had every intention of reading this book and A Little Life because they were both over 500 pages. I decided to listen to this on audio and physically read the other book. This book’s narrator was amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed the voices that he used to portray the characters. I found myself very invested in this story and the character’s lives. It was brilliantly told and maybe that was partially due to the narrator of the audio book. I gave up on A Little Life and will count that as a DNF this month. I think I read about 60 pages and that took me almost 3 days.
After the audio book rental expired, I read my physical copy of this book and that seemed to move a bit slower. However, it was wonderfully written and I will definitely be on the lookout for her other books.
It is story that deals with the life of a young boy and his growth into adulthood. It is sad and funny and mysterious and thrilling. I really loved this story.
I gave this 5 crowns.
