Definitely one best! The story was great. The narrator was great. It was a joy to listen to.
The character B. She was so awesome and just plain likable.
Bernadette. But then B was a close second. Bernadette was funny and relatable. Even though she is a mess, you can't help but love her.
This story was witty and entertaining. The narrator was brilliant!
I don't regret listening to it, but I don't think I'll listen to it again. And I probably wouldn't buy any more books by her. Now, this is not because I think she is a bad writer, but because I had a hard time relating to her because her personality is so different than mine.
Probably not. I thought most of the stories were entertaining, but I just couldn't relate to her life. I also felt that some of the stories were a little petty, but that's just me. Perhaps I'm just more of a Tina Fey type person.
I enjoyed her story about working as a physical therapist. I think that story really showed a genuine side of her that I wanted to hear more about. That's not true, I felt the whole book was genuine, but that story was one that I felt connected to her over.
I'd say so. I'm not in love with the book, but I don't regret listening to it.
I think that women who are adventurous and free-spirited would like this book. Women who identify with Tina Fey or Mindy Kaling might have a harder time connecting to Kelly Oxford's work.
The narrator. I had a really hard time listening to his voice. And it was really difficult to differenciate between the different characters because he didn't really change his voice at all.
To be honest, this genre is a bit of a stretch for me to begin with. I woudn't mind trying a different book in this genre. It all just depends on the story, and the narrator.
Someone with a bit more variation in their voice. Perhaps also someone that doesn't have such a deep, gravelly voice. I'm not sure who that would be.
No. Mostly because I couldn't get into the story because the narrators voice was so difficult for me to listen to.
This might be a book that is better to read than to listen to.
Yes! I would certainly recommend this book to a friend because there is so much interesting information that Gladwell provides and the whole book really offers a fresh perspective on how we view people, especially those who are successful and stand out.
The whole story about the rice patties and how that has influenced an entire culture.
That is hard to say, but probably Chris Langan. Or Marada (the young girl who attends the KIP school in the Bronx).
Success isn't just about hard work.
Really a fascinating book! Gladwell has a great voice too. The subject and content were so engaging, and his narration was perfect!
Yes! The whole story was so engaging and entertaining, and the narrators voice was lovely. I would happily take this journey again!
The main character. She sounded like a woman who was very progressive for her time and someone that young women now could relate to.
Her voice is so beautiful and easy to listen to. I don't think I would have imagined the characters to be so graceful and classy without her narration.
The book didn't make me cry, but it pulled me right in, right from the start. I hated whenever I had to stop listening.
Nora Ephron's wit and snarky humor.
This was the first Nora Ephron book for me. It was a gift. While I did enjoy the book, I know I was not target audience. Young women will still find it funny, but women 40+ will really enjoy it.
I like that she has a very unique voice, but that it isn't grating or difficult to listen to. I felt like she was sittingin my car with me, telling me all these great stories from her life.
Getting older doesn't get easier, but it does get funnier.
Tubular, Fun, Adventerous.
Hunger Games. Not just because it takes place in the future, but because the author did such an excellent job of creating a different future world that the reader can really imagine as they are reading.
I have not listened to any of Wil Wheaton's performances before, but he did an excellent job here.
No, but I probably would have if I had been able to.
I'm not really sure. Several of my friends saw the movie and said they really enjoyed it and found it to be very profound. I'm not really sure what they saw in it, but I've only listened to the book.
Possibly. I probably wouldn't choose to listen to another book by this author, but I would still give the genre a try again.
The first two narrators were so boring and impossible for me to stay interested in. Maybe it was their stories, maybe it was the narrator. The second narrator's voice/accent irritated me. The third narrator was ok. I had heard her before in "Dark Places". The last two were the most interesting, but their stories didn't pull mein.
I'm not sure the performances could have been better. I think it was the story that made the whole thing unenjoyable for me.
The first or second character.
This book was a little different than the others that I have listened too. It really tugged at my heart strings. I really enjoyed this book, but mostly because I really love dogs. The story was very enjoyable, but I think my opinion on it might be bias because of my affinity for canines.
I don't think that I can really compare it to any other book. Maybe "Poisonwood Bible". Both books make you feel so attached to the characters. I sobbed and sobbed several times listening to this book. Please keep in mind that it wasn't a bad sob, it was cathartic. The book didn't make me feel down. The story overall is very uplifting and moving. Similar in nature to "Poisonwood Bible".
The scene that was my favorite was probably when Bailey and the boy were at his grandparents house for the summer. It was fun to hear about them playing together and how the dog had to learn so much about life.
Man's best friend, forever.
Great book, but if you are dealing with the recent loss of a family pet, you may need to wait a while before listening to this book. My family pet had to be put down two years ago and I still found myself choked up and emotional when I listened to this book because it brought up so many memories of our family dog.
I haven' t read the print version, but I have no intention to because the audio edition was outstanding.
Libby was my favorite because you just want her to pullit together so badly. Deandre is a character you love to hate. She is awful but I LOVED every second she was in the story.
I listened to "Rules of Civility" narrated by Rebecca Lowman. The reason I even considered this book was becasue of her narration. She is one of the few narrators that you can enjoy instantly. She was great in that book and great in this one too.
Yes! Defintely! I hated having to get out of the car for work. It made me really look forward to my drives though!
The story is really dark, but the plot was so exciting that I couldnt' stop listening. There were so many twists and turns that I was guessing the whole time.
