Slow down

Story was excellent as befitting any Doctrow piece, but I have to say the reading left something to be desired. Cory, it's not a race. Let the sentences stand a moment and sink in. Often found myself going back a few seconds to pay better attention to scene or character transitions. Granted, I usually listen while doing other things and my mind is only half on the story, so maybe I'm not the best critic, but I think it's fair to say I'm in the majority of people listening to rather than reading books.Those punctuation marks are there for a reason, use them.

Great Tale of the Near Future

This is a better story than the author's description makes it sound. Some whacked out dude is stuck on a roof of an insane asylum telling you all about how he got there. It's funny, interesting, near-futuristic and suspensful. Well worth a listen. One of the better audiobooks here on itunes. It's proof that the future will be a little bit more difficult and a little bit more amazing than the present.

Well worth a listen!

Hooked from the first chapter. Very Hitchhikeresque.
Well written, clever and all around a solid, but sardonic, book.
