This book is read by Mitch Albom and I did not like his voice at all. I wouldn't say that he has a lisp but he pronounces words like his tongue is too thick. The story was alright, but the main character is very difficult to like and I couldn't identify with his bad choices so I just wasn't interested in how he learns that he made wrong decisions. This wasn't my cup of tea.
