Loved the story...the reading? Not so much...
This is a ruminatory memoir and approaches a few metaphysical issues. I loved that part, and related to the author's struggles. If you are looking for the family dysfunctions and conversational digressions contained in many memoirs this book won't work for you.
But as I was downloading the book it occurred to me that the narrator has not been one of my favorites. It's a totally subjective thing, on my part - some listeners love this guy. But as expected, I found the customary overly maudlin passages, and a sincerity and hyperbole that seemed forced and inauthentic.
But aside from that, this book is an excellent narrative on dealing with the stresses of daily life, perhaps even a "how to" book in memoir format.
