I joined Audible.com recently and have listened to several books. Some of them, like this one, The Perfect Son, have been specials offered by the website. I probably would have never heard of or read this book if not for it being on special, but I am glad that I did listen to it.
It is the story of a family, dealing with their every day lives complete with all the imperfections given them. The Mom has genetic heart problems and is in need of a transplant. The Dad suffers from OCPD and was the victim of an abusive father. The son has Turrette's as well as anxiety and ADHD.
It is the story of coming to term with your fears and demons. It is the story of unconditional love. It is the story of getting to know yourself, your strengths and your weaknesses and coming to terms with it.
I thought the narrator did a good job. It took me a while to adapt to her style but in the end I liked her. I also liked all the characters in this book, but it took me a while to warm up to the father who ended up being one of my favorites.
I would give this a solid 3 stars merging onto 4 stars.
