I had started this audiobook 2 other times before finally completing it. This is the story of Max Morden who has recently lost his wife. It is a stream of consciousness narrative and jumps back and forth in time. This is a good one to listen to if you are in a slightly melancholy mood. It will make you think about some pretty deep questions in life - the accuracy of memory and the indignity of dying. I loved the audio narration. John Lee is wonderful in this audiobook and throws in just the slightest Irish lilt.
