Wow this is a great book, I just loved it.
The development of the main character was so deep and thorough, I was completely invested in what happened to him. He was flawed and likable and I really rooted for him.
The other main "character" in this book was the setting of the story. There was a darkness, and a hopelessness, that had such a weight that it brought it's own emotional reaction.
The story, and pace, and interactions were perfect. The story was very centered around the main character and how he interacted with the other characters, but it was done with a great story, good action, and a great pace.
I don't have a single negative critique about this book.
The narrator was ridiculously perfect. I'm not sure I've ever heard a better pairing of a book and a narrator as this one. As an audible listener, the experience is definitely better than reading it. The narrator brought an extra depth to the story.
I highly recommend this book.

I didn't know what to expect, but I couldn't let go of the listen once I started. If I had understood what it was truly about, I may not have ever started this book -- which would have been too bad for me. I finished this book a month ago, but still think about it all the time. I feel like I knew the main character so well and rooted for him to escape his hard scrabble life in a hopeless place. Perfect for a book club because I am dying to discuss it with someone.
I listen to lots of violent books because I love thrillers and mysteries. This one had a few scenes that I had to skip over once I got the gist of what was happening. Too much for me to handle.
