Yes, it has totally put me off "bubblegum" literature / chic lit.
Anyone other than her.
The story line contains no substance and far removed from reality, the narrator’s voice sounded like nails on a chalkboard and Bernadette’s continual and long winded rants about everything wrong in her privileged world are unbearable. I abandoned the book three times before returning to it with the hope that it would get better. It didn’t.
Funny, sweet, intriguing
The story-telling confused me first, I kept waiting for the letters to end and actual story-telling to begin. Then I got used to it and I thought it was very cleverly plotted.
I will have to go with Bee. I had a feeling the narrator also enjoyed voicing her. I am amazed how easy it comes to Kathleen Wilhoite to switch from one character to another. Her accents are great, but there is more to it! She actually makes the characters believable. And she has a wonderful singing voice. She must also be a music performer.
For us girls, no matter what age we are, our relationships with our dads are very important for us. It is beacuse of this I think, I thought the scene where Bee sits on the rocks with his dad really got to me.
I loved this book. I recommend it to whoever out there looking for a nice book to listen.
