This cult classic, an icon of 1960s and 1970s counterculture, might seem an odd choice for an audiobook. That said, the book itself is a monument to odd choices that somehow work--so fans of Brautigan won't be disappointed. First, poet Billy Collins reads his introduction with his usual dry wit, his easy soft-shoe with language setting the tone appropriately. Then comes the affable Chris Ciulia, who is unflappable as he makes his way through surreal scenes and plentiful similes that wash over the listener like a mountain stream. As with many risk-taking texts, this audiobook is best listened to with a relaxed ear; don't try to "get the point," or you might miss it.
