What made the experience of listening to Pushing Rubber Downhill the most enjoyable?
A well written book about a subject I know nothing about, but find interesting.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Adam, as it's all from his POV
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
The narrator read the book. Full stop. He's quite good at reading the book, but not so much as a voice actor.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No, but I did plow through it because it was that entertaining. The audiobook version of "couldn't put it down"
Any additional comments?
Very much worth the money spent, an enjoyable audio book.

Very Fun Story
I picked up this book because I like the narrator, but ended up really liking it. I listened to it in one go while at work, without a second of boredom. The story is great, very fast paced and exciting. I've had some similar experiences as the author had in this book, so I was able to relate to a point, but I think Piggott way outdid me in the overall hedonism. The writing is great and you are quickly sucked into Piggott's life and world. I felt this book was a prime example of the extreme nihilism plaguing a great number of the exceptional men of western civilization. I only subtract a star from the story because the author did not realize this himself and steered the book to other conclusions. Also the propensity of the author to lie to other characters in the story made me wonder if he wasn't lying a little in telling the story... Either way, it was a great read and I give this book my wholehearted recommendation.
