I absolutely loved this book

Was sorry it ended. I could relate to the location as I once lived on the street where the book was set.

I am a fan of Pete's work. Like most of his fiction the ending is generally not as realistic as the portraits in the body of the book. I am willing to overlook this minor flaw as I am generally completely enthralled and entertained by his writing.

Beautiful story with excellent narration

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This story stuck with me for quite a while because of the characters and the the realistic, in-the-zone mood it created. Henry Strozier is my favorite narrator and Pete Hamill's writing was so personal and involved it makes me want to read more of his works.

What about Henry Strozier’s performance did you like?

Henry Strozier's voice is easy to listen to and adds realism to the reading.
