Almost Perfect by Brian Katcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I chose this book, in audio version, with no fore-thought. It was simply available at the time on the limited selection of audio books that East Sussex Library has to offer.
It was purely meant to be an auditory vehicle for getting through the working day.
I am delighted to give it 5 stars though, it was simply a beautiful story; told in a beautiful and simple way.
This book was "Almost Perfect" ... it was perfect.
The narration was also outstandingly done. All credit to Kirby Heyborne he did a magical job, and has the most lovely voice.
I realise that the subject matter might not be for everybody. However, try to let go of any prejudice, and see it for the lovely piece of literature that lies beyond the plot.
Actually, it managed to up root one of my own prejudices, in that I haven't truly believed until this moment that a man can write anything but shoot 'em up or spy tales. I am wrong, and will not make that mistake again.
I borrowed the Audio Book Version from the local library, via my OverDrive app (click here to see my post about getting it to work on Kindle Fire in the UK). Perfect for a bit of easy listening on the train @RailBookClub Members.

I think I will get myself a Kindle copy of this, as it is definitely a book that I would read again and again.
You can pick up a copy HERE for £3.71 - now, that is an excellent price in my opinion.
