Hearing Jill read her own work. Her tales are of her life and experiences, this just adds to the satisfaction she would give that much of herself to her listeners. Even through the rough part about her mother.
Any of her other works or Olivia deBelle Byrd's, "Miss Hildreth Worn Brown"
Loved the story about the gator hunt! That was hysterical!
I learned if my own writing career should ever take off in a way that Jill's has then I might truly have to think long and hard about how to do a book tour: plane or bus.
In the book Jill talks of "Big Butter Jesus" she saw while doing a bus book tour. Just as she said, the original singer and his video is on Youtube BUT I was shocked to see "Jesus" had been struck by lightening. Guess Heywood's line in the song about God not liking idols built was true.
It is extremely lengthy and if you are driving from New York to San Fransico then maybe.
I'm sure the techies in the world enjoyed listening to every bit of hardware and software jargon, the making of it and getting it to run but for those of us less inclined it got a little dry.
He did a fine job getting us through it.
No. From what I learned of Jobs through this story I believe Jobs should've reconsidered asking this to be done in the first place. Too ecentric, could be called a thief at times and not a nice man at all.
Jobs did make a lot of money stating all along the way, "it's not about the money" but nonetheless, he made it. Hopefully, he did more charity work than was mentioned because actually, none was mentioned.
The storyline was incredible! Through every scene you could close your eyes and be transported to wherever the story was happening. District 12, at the Capital, the arena.
Katness: I found she was captivating and a survivor even before the Reaping.
The narrator did a wonderful job with the distinction between the characters.
I pulled for all the underdogs. My heart rate increased with their triumphs and my stomach sank at their defeats.
I think I'm the last person I know to have 'read' this book and can't wait to start the next in the series. The movie has already been released and I refused to watch it until I'd read the book. Better late than never!
