Kind of low on the list--White Teeth and On Beauty were so amazing, so I had high expectations.
Not as listenable--maybe because it's more postmodern.
her husband--she's very nice about it but he's obviously a tool
first visit with the mother in law
Probably--it's a wittier version of Augustine Burroughs with no smut. But I like Burroughs--this is even better.
A wonderful inflection of voice.
I haven't read the print, but it's such an amazing story what difference could it make?
The other two in the Millenium trilogy--that's a dumb answer but they're hard to compare.
I listen for fun. The book is so descriptive and captivating I would say it's better to listen to it than see the film, especially the American version of the film. Great fun.
The magic, the setting, and the ever-so-real yet very unusual family of characters.
The touch of magic realism in the Canadian back woods--this is something that hasn't been done before! And it's not as in-your-face magic and supernatural as Charlaine Harris, Twilight, and all the wanna-be authors. Dare I say it's as refreshing as the literary magician of our time--J.K. Rowling?
I don't want to spoil it, but when they spared the dog during a long winter and found a better source of sustenance for their canine and themselves.
Winter magic in the north woods.
One of the best. It's a provocative, witty, and really engaging story.
The characters were terrific, and the intellectual questions in skirts are quite compelling. I am going to teach it in a college course because it's so thought-provoking and I want to discuss it extensively with a group.
The main professor guy.
What really matters?
Now I do love her. She's so honest--she used to be a bit of a jerk, now she's accepted herself and enjoying life's surprises. A rather smart bildungsroman. This is funny and authentic and makes you think about mistakes you have made, but also makes you think about accepting them and getting on with it.
Maybe Rachel Dratch? Lynch is less performative and a bit less funny, but more down to earth in a fun way.
Jane. I might even watch Glee now. Definitely Best in Show.
Yes--it made a very long road trip relaxing and even reinvigorating.
I stole this when it was on sale--it's definitely worth a credit!
Probably not--I know everything I wanted to know about wheat and more.
I would have liked to hear the recipes and dietary suggestions that are supposedly in a .pdf I can't find.
A bit less clinical
Definitely--I am drinking the kool-aid instead of eating the wheat.
I am a literature professor and listen to audiobooks for a break from the 18th century, so this was a wonderful change of pace. This is definitely laugh-out-loud funny and made a 2000 mile drive enjoyable (although I sandwiched it between Jane Lynch and Penny Marshall, which were also lovely). This is better than Bossy Pants, and when Amy Pohler writes her memoir, the bar has been set much higher for her.
Probably the revelation of the double-bush exposure.
Hilarious, fun, and also very candid. She brings new meaning to "being real."
