Narration at times odd. Otherwise insanely good.
This book is insanely well written. I enjoyed every part of the imagery.
I'm not one to ever complain about a voice/narrator. I normally love them even if other people didn't. In general this Ben was amazing... However, I must admit that I was constantly knocked out of my suspension of disbelief whenever he did a Female character voice.
The way that this narrator does women would be perfect for an autobiography read by the author if the book was "Pee Wee Herman's Life Story"
His take on women is comical... and albeit distracting, it does sort of work for the story.
I hope Ben Rameaka was being directed to read this way and doesn't really think that this is how women sound. Its a tad bit demeaning.
The book and story are worth the annoyance/comic relief though. SO listen anyway.

The book simply stinks. Not everything has to be a nicey-nicey feel-good book. I like serious, and sometimes dark stories, but this just was not compelling. Sad things happened to main character, but it was hard for me to like him nevertheless. The rest of the characters were completely uninteresting & unlikeable. The story just never got better. At a little more than halfway through I realized I was wasting my time. Good luck if you download it.
