Dan King is constantly reinventing him in this novel. (He even changed his name to a more European version...kind of pretentious... He, like a masculine Scarlett O'Hara has relied greatly on the" kindness of others" -- usually rich older women. He struck me as a "walker" for these women, often lived, dined with their crystal, china daily with them, did their hair and makeup and brought his male boyfriends into their grand houses. He approached the women and proposed business ideas to them, always using their funding for his ideas. He was charming, for sure. Many of these seemingly lonely ladies took him in and enjoyed his witty repartee. An interesting story, but I felt he relied on others to much and never relied on his own merits, which extraordinary.
Narrator pronounced so many words incorrectly that I wanted to scream. As a narrator, one should read the book first and then highlight any unknown words and look up their definitions and pronunciation. That was very lacking here
Otherwise, an interesting listen.
