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.

Couldn't finish this

I may be the only person in America who can't stand Wallace's books. I slogged through BigFish but couldn't make myself listen to more than an hour of this drivel - the bigger than life aspect is just too much. I want to feel that even in fantasy the characters might be real....
