Publisher's Summary

In his first novel, Dave Eggers has written a moving and hilarious tale of two friends who fly around the world trying to give away a lot of money and free themselves from a profound loss. It reminds us once again what an important, necessary talent Dave Eggers is.

A delightful listen

Really touching and laugh out loud at the same time. Eggers strikes a wonderful balance between serious and seriously funny here. The superb narrator never gets in the way of this journey, his subtle but well defined details of anxiety and sadness while looking at the world at large brings everything into perspective. Highly recommended! Especially if you need a laugh.

Holden Caufield travels the world

There were some really fun moments in this story, chasing donkeys and climbing trees, it makes me think of 12 year old boys traveling as adults.

That immaturity and naive fun gets old though when you are trapped in the angst ridden mind of the main character.

Dian Graham is not my favorite narrator and I think my annoyance with Will didn't help.

I enjoyed this book though, I think it's worth listening to, it's just not my favorite Eggers, which I think makes me judge it more harshly.
