I "revisited" this again...beautifully read and written. Of course I'd listen again....it's Meryl Streep!
Talent. Wit. Humanity.
Meryl Streep was enjoyable. It is like she is telling her own story. Will look for more. Will add Ephron to my list of authors.
Who couldn't love Meryl Streep's wonderful expressiveness? But, the subject matter was dreadful. I'm no moralistic prude, but according to Nora Ephron, all men are either cheating bastards or sissy cuckolds. The best parts of the novel were the long asides the narrator told about her life, and the recipes.
Her volume changed and she yelled occasionally. I listen to books at night when I can't sleep and sometimes as I was drifting off to sleep, her yelling would wake me up. She was expressive, but if you are listening to this to relax, this is not the reading for you.
It was fun to listen to Meryl Streep and i enjoyed the humor in the book. Its a very light and simple story that quickly started to bore me. I did listen all the way through and hoped for an interesting ending of which I didn't find.
It had some cute humor tied into the story and a few times I laughed out loud. I think it takes some skill to write humor
