A fun ride

Drew Magary is one of my favorite authors and this one definitely doesn't disappoint. It's a strange and short ride but worth the experience.

Good story, really sore narration

I liked this story, but had to listen to it on 1.25 bc the narration was really, really slow to the point of being distracting

Fun payoff

You had to know the end was going to be great with the boring dullness of the character. It was delivered perfectly by Mr. Fouhey.

A compelling human story about charming grumpiness

Drew Magary is excellent at capturing the complexity of age and grumpiness. This is a charming and well-paced story, and I was left wishing it continued into a full length novel.
