The story seemed a bit scattered to me, as Diane jumped back and forth between narrative from herself and her mother's journals. It was a very personal and emotional story. Although it was interesting and gave much insight to Diane's psyche it was not nearly as upbeat or funny as I expected. If you are a Diane Keaton fan, I'd say it's surely worth the time, but it was not my favorite listen.
The story line wasn't bad, but a bit predictable. It certainly didn't have me riveted to my earbuds. The thing I really didn't like was the canned "Eve said", "Harry said", "Sherlock said", etc. of the narration. I suppose the both male and female narration added to the audiobook and the text had to be read verbatim, but it sounded as if the "So and so said" phrases were recorded separately as inserted as needed. I found this very repetitive and distracting.
