I only wanted it to go on forever but Meryl stopped at some point and I am pretty upset about that.
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.
The protagonist and all of the characters in the novel are magically reborn via Meryl Streep's gifted and exceptional reading. Each character was given a unique and appropriate cadence and tone, and in some cases, dead on accents. Streep plays the role of a woman facing many crisis in the late 70s/early 80s - before cell phones and texting and the Internet. And while the plot may be somewhat predictable, there is nothing predictable about the charm, wit, sadness, anger, strength in Streep's voice. I enjoyed it! And I enjoyed the key lime pie recipe too!
