Why do we keep coming back to Nora Ephron Heartburn? Because it's a timeless, witty, laugh out loud, sad and real story. If you saw the movie, you know how good the story is. If you know nothing about it, just enjoy the surprise of listening to this amazing actress read the story. If you read the book, listen to Meryl Streep read it to you again. Trust me she does a much better job than you could ever do. The recipes peppered into the story are a real bonus. The carefully guarded secret recipe for vinaigrette is excellent not to mention the peach pie...yummy
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.
No. The book was predicable and, well annoying. If I wanted to hear whiny characters who have first world problems and think life is miserable, I would watch the Kardashians.
No. Her character was whiny and weak. I did not see her as a person I would ever spend time with in real life. I just wanted the book to end. I didn't care how it ended--just that it would be over.
She is the perfect narrator for this book. I will leave it at that.
Probably Not. Have to say since Meryl Streep is such a great actress, I was expecting her to be a better narrator..
Does not bring the characters to life.
All of them!!
This book was so boring...But since I already purchased it I have been trying to listen to the whole book , I have about one hour left..but it is excruciating....
The narrator - I did not enjoy Meryl Streep's narration, even though I love her as an actress. I found the tone nagging and irritating.
The story is too inwardly focused and the repetition of the self-talk became boring.
The performance was high pitched and sounded more like nagging than reading a book
A good story and a good narrator
Written it to be remotely funny.
There could have been some emotion????
The protagonist - totally unsympathetic and self-sympathizing.
Don't waste your money.
