Best narrator I've heard

You should listen to this book just for the narration alone. It's wonderful. The story itself is so real, and so funny and sad. I loved every minute.

Life, love and unhappiness

A engaging look at the complicated father-son-mother triangle of love, interdependency and growth. How no one is an island and as as we live we take something of the others that we live and love with.

Great Story but….

When there are so many great narrators out there, why chose one so dull? This novel is long awaited and much anticipated but the narrator reads with a wearisome two-tone delivery as though it's a local news report. Douglas comes across as a whiner and all the gentle comedy is lost.

Wry and honest portrayal of a marriage

A touching portrayal of a marriage that has for one of the partners "run its course" this is a story full of love. The wry observations of the husband who tells the story are so sad but also so humorous- great character insights written with deadpan delivery . I thought this was very well narrated and I enjoyed listening to the book very much.
