Listening to audiobooks is like watching a really, really, really long and way more interesting movie... with my ears.
OOOOOHHHHHH yes. I liked the story overall but Meryl Streep took it to the next level. She's amazingly talented.
Maybe. I think I would have to be in the mood. It was slow-moving and just a lot of he said she said and gossip. That's not really my style but she did keep my attention until the end because I really, really wanted to know if Rachel would leave Mark.
No, but I would love to. I'd listen to a book on astrophysics if she narrated it.
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.
Best. Audiobook. Ever.
Every passing reference to her husband's therapist, Our Lady of the Castanets, is hilarious. But the entire book is memorable. I read and loved it many years ago when it was published. As performed by Meryl Streep, it is the newest, freshest story ever: The first time in history a husband has left his wife for another woman. As a bonus, it is especially funny for those of us old enough to remember who these people were/are in real life when it was written.
All of them. The experience of listening to this book is like sitting in a theater for a one-woman show: It is performed by one of the greatest actors of our time using the words of one of the greatest writers of our time.
Rachel, the co-cuckold. How could it not be? Her husband has left her and she can't even date.
I have enjoyed 100s of audiobooks and expect to enjoy 100s more. But "Heartburn" will always be The Best Audiobook Ever. I can't believe I stumbled on it accidentally after all these years.
This was very well read and well written. It is great to know it was based on fact. It really is a heart breaking situation that was told hilariously. I love that she told the story about her famous husband. I have been quoting lines from this book to my friends. I think the narration helped to enhance the book.
Heartburn is the story of a woman's, Rachel, divorce. She uses her humor and love of cooking to tell the story of her marriage and it's demise. It was well written but the story telling and humor were not my cup of tea. I didn't laugh as much as I hopes I would and didn't get all of the Jewish American colloquialisms.
