Story is good. Reader is Excellent.
The stars in my rating go to the reader in acknowledgement of his effort to record this (the result is unfortunately not that great either). The book would be OK if a decent writer took the story and told it. As it happened, the language is just awful. Very poor vocabulary and style. Skip it.
Not the best tale but definitely worth listening to. Very good reader.
