I am only about 1/3 into the story, but so far, it is like a long fairy tale for adults. The main characters at this point are Peter Lake, an orphan who raised himself in New York City at the turn of the last century, his nemesis, Pearly Soames, and Beverly Penn, the woman he falls in love with while trying to rob her father.
This is another 27 hour long story, so I have a lot more listening to do. I'm asking for extra long jumper cables for Mother's Day, because I just can't be sure that I won't drain down my battery listening again.
By the way . . . don't forget to vote for this blog in the Independent Book Blogger contest by April 23, 2012. The link is on the top right corner of this Blog.
