Maybe this book loses something in the listening as it seemed to me that it was more an exercise in technique rather than story-telling. It’s not bad and is well delivered by Tim Gerard Reynolds but, in the end, he is just relaying events, feelings, frustrations and observations that the majority of listeners will have already experienced for real. It reminded me of “Eileen” in as far as I kept waiting or something to happen.
