Ethan Hawke sounds like he's trying to emulate that guy who does the coming attractions at the movies. The book is insanely good though, of course.
admittedly have not listened to entire thing, but I can't bear it!
I love studio 360 (radio series this was based on), so I was so happy to see this was available on audible. sadly, audiobook features way too many clips from the show (I already heard them, and the clips feel like lazy cop-out); also feels very disjointed as a whole group of interviews/ whatever this is. not as much as I had hoped of a basic overview of creative types and how they operate. there is a little of this, but not enough. I mean, once could just read the Artist's Way and get every revelation these folks seem to have in the first chapter. I know literary types eschew all self-help, so it amuses me to find the authors so shocked to figure out exactly what other gurus for cultivating creativity seemed to figure out looong ago. I wanted to love, but I would just download the podcast and call it a day, (PS what is up with crappy cover designs for creativity books. can't help but wonder as a book cover designer myself. oo a light bulb! sigh.)
haven't written a review before. felt the need to write one here--this was one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to, bought it maybe 5 yrs ago and have listened to many since. still love this one. hated for the novel to end. story about a woman's friendship--very intimate, almost like lovers (as a lesbian and close friend to plenty of straight ladies, I found this aspect especially truthful--as female friends very often toe the line super close to lover)
anyway, beautifully narrated by author. what else...
i suppose I should mention other audio titles I have hated to have end. All sedaris (Amy and David) titles, and that first book in Strain series. pretty much it.
I found this funny. Yes, it's a little light at times, and self indulgent. But that's the point. It's a little more literary that Sex and the City...but not much. Definitely entertaining though.
I was so excited to find this, I neglected to check to make sure the author was the one actually reading. I mean, it was a speech he gave, and I have heard bits of the audio before so I just assumed. sigh.
His sister does a goof job reading, I was just really disappointed it wasn't the full audio from the speech.
This is interesting, helpful, but I find myself annoyed by the overarching Christian perspective. Also find the authors slightly condescending. I found the book DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS much more helpful. Audiobook for above book is done very well. I also have the hard copy and find it a good companion for audiobook.
laugh out loud hilarious. I had no idea she was so funny. I can't imagine why anyone would not enjoy this...maybe other folks were hoping for something more princess Leiah? I am not a huge Star Wars fan, not that I hate it. anyhow, my other comic faves have included David Sedaris, Dan Savage, Paula Poundstone, Sarah Silverman.
