Not much here, here.

I have a 35 minute drive each way to work every day. Not much to some, but long for me. Audible gets me through...most of the time...I don't understand how off base I was about this book. Reading the cover on line I thought I'd found something special, a sleeper...Instead, I was sleeping. At the end I played the last 4 minutes over and over to see if I'd missed something. No, sadly I did not. Get a different sleeper, or listen to this one before bed!

The Truths will tell the story

This is the first Daniel Wallace book I've read, but I saw and enjoyed the movie "Big Fish." Daniel Wallace likes stories--and stories woven within stories. For him the story (even mistold) tells a greater truth than a simple list of events. That's not to say that there isn't a single truth to this story. Each of the narrators may not know what happened, but the reader listening to each story can easily piece together the truth. I enjoyed the author and the various readers a great deal.

Highly recommended. This isn't a genre murder mystery, but something written with thought and talent.
