Overall, a fun story, well read. Some of the plot criticisms already reviewed here are valid, I believe, but they certainly don't get in the way of either the story or the setting. This is a much better reading experience in print, I have to say, because the abridgment leaves out so much compelling and interesting detail about New York City, which seems to be Hamill's main reason for writing the book. It's not Audible's fault, of course; the publishers seem to think we all just want a quick read, a la fast food. I liked it when I listened to it, but felt too much was missing. When I read it in print,it just came alive and I luxuriated in the details.

The abridging of this book chops the story so severly that it does not flow well. I understand the complete story is excellent but with this abridged version, it constantly feels like you are missing something. Only the beginning of the book, and the narrator are first rate. The rest can be skipped.
