I read this for a book club and didn't really know what it was going to be like. At first I was skeptical, but the more I listened the more I loved it. Just a really well done story. I enjoyed it so much.
I literally cannot think of one... Someone with severe ADHD?
This story was so twisted and weird... I kept thinking it would become more cohesive and make sense, but this had a joke of an ending. She had to get her teeth pulled to go to Antarctic and totally ditcher her entire family because of an old architecture dream? WHAT?!
Anyone. Stephen Hawking.
I REALLY dislike books written in the format of emails, letters, and diary entries. Just for that reason, I almost gave this book only two stars. And to the narrator, Kathleen Wilhoite, the 't' in the word 'often' is SILENT!!
This book was entertaining and the reader was quite good. There were sections that dragged, but it's truly a fun and lovely life affirming story, even if a wee bit far fetched. I listened to it quickly which generally means I was engaged.
The performance was very good though I recognized the actress's voice right away and was distracting at times. The story kept my attention but wasn't my style (I'm more The Kind Worth Killing, The Luckiest Girl Alive, etc).
I thought it was well written and well acted. It's hard to pick one best thing about this audiobook - very enjoyable.
I listened to this right after having listened to the girl on the train, and i thought there were several similar themes, though this was more lighthearted.
i don't know I'm not a writer.
very good book definitely recommend.
I truly enjoyed the characters in this story - each with an interesting mix of quirky, tragic, loving and ugly traits. And, as someone working in "hi-tech", it was fun to hear the bits about Microsoft, Ted Talks, etc.
Probably my my favorite audiobook download. Interesting and intriguing story, excellent narration. Could not wait to get back in my car to continue the story! Would sometimes stay in my car an extra minute to keep listening. Download now!!!
