Do not read this book at the age of 13 as I did back when it first came out on paperback. I had no idea what I was in for. As it turns out it shattered the innocence of my young mormon raised mind.
But, it was also the first time I cried from reading a book, and more importantly it cemented my love of reading forever. Until this book came along I'd voluntarily read maybe 1 or 2 short books. After this I couldn't stop reading, but I've never quite had the soul altering experience I got from this book. But I suppose innocence can only be lost once, which as it turns out is the theme of the book.
I've been waiting for this series to finally come out in audiobook form and I was thrilled to see it here. It's been a pleasure to hear these words in my head again after 34 years, oh the nostalgia. Is it the very best book I've read, no. The performance and story are probably closer to a 4, but that's okay. I couldn't possibly rate such an important book in my personal journey to manhood and a love of reading anything less than a 5.

The story is great and well written but the narrator is weak. Still worth listening to.
