Appalling and Fascinating ...
My main reason for buying this audio book was its brilliant narrator Saul Reichlin. Once again, he did not disappoint, his narration skills being - at least to my opinion - unrivalled!
As to the book, after the first hour I was tempted to give it back, the "explicit" - for me just vulgar - language and the repetitive phrases didn't appeal to me and made listening somehow tiresome. But then I got used to it and - especially - got caught in the story and the plot(s), and in spite of many nearly unbearable brutal scenes couldn't put the book away until it's very end. A cliffhanger? I'll see, the sequel 1977 is downloading right now...
