I used a credit on this book despite some of the negative reviews. I appreciated the fact that it kept my attention throughout. I think the review that mentioned the sexual content only listened to the beginning and gave up on the book. I thought it was interesting that one negative review assumed that the author was a man, when in fact A. M. Homes is apparently a woman. The story all tied together, and I appreciated how Harry came along in his journey to understand some things about his life and his view of family. It was definitely outlandish at times, but in a charming way. I also thought Andy Paris did a great job with the narration.

Any additional comments?
This book seemed a bit contrived at points. The reading was fine, the story was a satire (I suppose) of life in these fast paced, hectic times. Harold as an adjunct professor forever writing the definitive book on Nixon makes for some interesting juxtapositions but these are also occasionally a bit much. Harrold’s sudden sex life crosses the borders of male fantasy and passes the village of absurdity when he is handcuffed by a couple of unhappy children.
The story keeps moving, along with Nixon flashbacks but I’m not sure I would have finished what would be a very long book had I taken it out of the library.
