We made it through like four chapters of my stumbling over all the pronunciations of the Alaskan names and the author's superfluous adjectives, and then we decided to get the book on CD and listen to it in the car. This book, although I'm incensed at how obtuse this boy's parents were and how narcissistic Chris was, is really good. We're on chapter nine and really enjoying it... I think it's fueling our desire to see the film, the cinematography alone will be worth it (adding to the fact that there were reportedly some knock-out performances that were nominated for multiple awards this past year).
Anybody else have any suggestions for books that were as good on audio as they were in print?
