Meryl Streep is Meryl Streep, you know? And the writting! Mindblowing good. Norah Ephron will never disappoint you.
When Rachel's doctor asked her: "Do you believe in love?".
What a true joy -- Nora Ephron's writing complimented by Meryl Streep's narration. Perfection. The only thing that could make this a better experience would be eating cheesecake while listening.
I really didn't enjoy this book. There were parts that were comical but not enough in my opinion. I think some of the comedy would have been funnier if I had understood some of the Jewish customs. Meryl Streep did an amazing job. I really had to make myself finish the book.
I love Nora Ephron. I love Meryl Streep. This book has been given rave reviews. However, was one of the worst things I have listened to in years. I gave it 45 long minutes, then turned it off and took a Tylenol for my headache.
Yes, just not this.
A whole different story This was more a cook book than a story. i was so sad this was the case.
I dont think so.
Just her voice.
Meryl Streep reading the story.
Meryl Streep is a wonderful narrator. You can get lost in her delivery of Ephron's witty and timeless story of divorce. Ephron writes an autobiographical account of her real-life divorce to Carl Bernstein. The events leading up to the split are heartbreaking and gut wrenchingly hilarious.
Ephron spins a domestic dissolution into a timeless comedy.
Streep's portrayal of Richard and Juanita the maid were laugh out loud moments. Her performance of Rachel transforms Rachel into a real person and not just a witty woman reminiscing on her bygone divorce at a cocktail party.
It's a perfect title.
I'm not typically an audiobook listener, but I cannot think of a more perfect way to experience Nora Ephron's first-person novel than as read by her frequent collaborator (and supreme genius!), Meryl Streep. Listen now and ENJOY!
No one - it is a pathetic effort from this author !!
Not sure, but it won't be anything written by Nora Ephron.
None of them - too many crazy people to count !!
There are so many characters in this audiobook - every five minutes a new set was added, all of them more neurotic than the other - so cutting one would not have made it worth my time in listening to this nonsense.
Meryl Streep was exactly what I expected - wonderful - fantastic !!
Didn't like it, Didn't like the characters.
It was ok.
1. Meryl Streep's reading
2. It was short.
Just didn't like the characters. It was semi-autobiographal so I actually gave them a bit more sympathy than I would have if I hadn't known that.
