Has anyone read this? It's the selection for a book group I attend that meets next week and I haven't started it yet. I heard that it's an entertaining read and am wondering if it goes pretty quickly too? I've put so much time in on my computer recently that my lazy eye is really causing problems (as evidenced by some egregious typos) so reading for long stints is going to be a challenge.

BTW, this is an example of the Kindle price ($9.99) exceeding the paperback (but not hardcover) price ($8.39) on Amazon.

What you need while your eye is feeling strained are some audio books.

Good idea and one that never occurred to me. I've never had an audio book so that would be novel (no pun intended) as well.

I just looked into audible books on Amazon. Free 30-day trial includes the book for next week. And the devices that can be used are wide ranging.

I might have to give this a try.

Hey - there you go!  I read about the book and it sounds like loads of fun.  Kurt Vonnegut and Douglas Adams?  I'm there!  I adore dark humor.

Will do.

Am trying to figure out how to add it to my smartphone so that I can listen to it now. Wish me luck. I'm great with big computers, not so much with the little gadgety ones. :(
