Her vast experience as an actor is much of what makes the listening to this book so very enjoyable. Though it does help that Ephron's writing is so terrific.
In Heartburn, Nora Ephron pens a story of truth about relationships, commitment, heartache & betrayal within a family laced with the common comfort of food. Although we all have an escapism when things go awry, for this main character that thing is represented by food & cookbooks.
This is a great story that touches on the inner workings on marriage as an ultimate relationship and how an agreement between two parties on how that relationship is working is the central glue that can make or break it, in the end.
Have always loved Nora Ephron's movies now love her books. The combo of her writing with Meryl Streep's performance is outstanding.
Glad to be part of the audible community and I hope that my reviews help to choose the right book and share my love of reading.
The book gave me heartburn. The story was really flat - another divorce story - no solutions, no depth of characters.
The only thing Ms. Ephron nailed were the description of the emotions of the characters. Yet there was no spice to the story and some aspects were unbelievable. The only spice given were the cusswords.
I love Meryl Streep - but her performance was just ok.
No reaction, other than it was a credited wasted.
This book had great reviews, so I thought I give it a try. I have read better books about divorces, as tragic as that is, but this one was just mere average. Get the book on sale, don't waist a credit.
The reviews were amazing so I expected to love it and laugh but I didn't pick up the humor in it. The story line flowed and I wasn't bored but I don't get why it was so well loved.
This book was real. the real story of love and heart break.
so much personality to the characters.
I loved this book, but was heart broken at the end. I don't know what I was expecting, but I wasn't expecting to have to pull over and have a good cry like I did.
Say something about yourself!
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 "revisited" this again...beautifully read and written. Of course I'd listen again....it's Meryl Streep!
Talent. Wit. Humanity.
