I'm always on the lookout for Buddhist-themed novels and so downloaded this one despite it's mixed reviews. It's been in my library for a while and I've dipped in and out of it from time to time - wanting to like it and wanting to give it a full chance. I don't seem to be able to get into it. The story is a bit thin; the protagonist a bit 'in your face'. I like the idea of the novel, but don't feel that it is pulled off and have decided not to persevere with trying to finish it..
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Definitely. I've listened to it three times.
What did you like best about this story?
Makes you laugh, makes you sad, a thoroughly entertaining story well told. If you're interested in Buddhism, even a tiny bit, get this book.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
yes, if you have the time
This was an interesting listenand an easy start to learning about buddha's ideas. I am encouraged to go and seek more information. It was well read and the narrator's voice was engaging.
The story was interesting in and of itself even if you do not have an interest in Buddhism.
It is also a book to listen to again

I was hooked from begining to end. Funny, insightful and totally addictive.
I got to the end and listened again straight away.
Great introduction to Nichiren Buddhism. I've been practicing buddhism for 15 years and still find this useful (do get tired of the main character though... so whingy)
