Publisher's Summary

At the age of 22, David Eggers became both an orphan and a "single mother" when his parents died within five months of one another of unrelated cancers.
David is appointed unofficial guardian of his eight-year-old brother, Christopher. The two live together in semi-squalor, decaying food and sports equipment scattered about, while Eggers worries obsessively about child-welfare authorities, molesting babysitters, and his own health.

Listening torture

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Perhaps I am unable to relate to this author's life. This book doesn't even seem to have any positive emotions, maybe I missed it.
