Slower start than Today will be Different, but once its gets going, it's a glorious, raucous ride. And Kathleen Willhoite is brilliant. She grabs the tail in her teeth and runs. I adore her narration.
I absolutely loved this book. It was different and I found myself looking forward to my daily commute so I could listen to it. The author did a wonderful job at developing all of the characters. I was sad when it ended.
I loved this story and the narrator was perfect! this story is funny, romantic, and deep. when you think you have it all figured out, something else happens. the flow is perfect. definitely recommend this book!
loved it. was expecting a mystery... instead a comedy about social class, and interactions through the lens of a girl and correspondences.
I am glad I followed my instincts to download this one. Where'd You Go, Bernadette was a breath of fresh air (or to reference the book, a neti pot irrigation). This is the kind of book I long to listen to after a series of long or dense books. It had been patiently waiting in my library until I needed it. Maria Semple's writing hit the spot.
I am guessing most audible listeners respond, as I do, with unexpected delight when authors include small details that resonate with their world. There were many in Where'd You Go, Bernadette for me. I enjoyed the familiar and the highlighting of how individuals' perceptions differ. Even better was that those who were deluded saw the light. Kathleen Wilhoite did an exceptional job carrying the feeling tone of the characters. Her portrayal of Bee sounded younger than her years, but this was not a problem as her narration supported the story unfolding.
Kathleen Wilhoite's performance. Hands down.
Bernadette and Bee. Bernadette was misunderstood and always interesting. Bee had a great personality, knew what was going on and wasn't afraid to stand for what she believed.
The voices. She was able to capture the voices exactly how I could have imagined and it only helped me to be able to picture the story, characters and events that took place.
absolutely, you'll have to read to know!
It was wonderful.
6 stars for Kathleen Wilhoite! She is an amazing narrator and she brings this book to life in a fantastic way. The story is written in the form of letters, emails, notes and commentary which gives an insight into the minds and moods of the characters in a refreshing way. It's funny, sad, obscure and imaginative, but all the way it has a feel-good sense to it. I loved it.
