There are so many facets to this story. The honesty and humor of the narrator. The entertainment of the story and the amxing insights that are carefully placed along the way. I had a tough time getting to the end because I wanted to stay in the story - and then the narrator even walked me through that in the last few pages. I will be reading this many times.
