Not having Michelle Duggar narrating like she's reading Goodnight Moon to her youngest children.
No, I don't think so. I have been a fan of the show since it's beginning, but what I learned in this book showed me just how strange and sad the Duggar situation really is.
She narrated the book like she was reading a board book to a baby. There was no emotion, no inflection. How can you read your own work like you've never even seen it before?
All of the above. They do not try to hide that they do not allow their daughters to leave the house unless they get married, that kids who start getting "ideas" are sent to a retraining retreat for as long as necessary, and that keeping everyone together is more important than individual needs and desires, including pursuing ones' own life and education.
Sad. Strange. Intense.
Definitely poor little Alice. What a bizarre world she lived in. You just root for her to finally find happiness.
The characters really came to life with her reading. The creepy people were creepier for sure.
I am so bad at this. Let's see. "See where the rabbit hole REALLY took Alice."
Not as good as Mrs. Thumb, but still so great, especially if you love Alice In Wonderland.
Somewhere in the middle. I love a good long book, and this one certainly fits that bill.
I felt the protagonist's relief when she was finally able to talk about her experiences with someone who believed she was telling the truth.
I have listened to Outlander, and think her accents are beautifully executed. She is a pleasure to listen to.
I laugh at the joking that goes on in the book. Very clever.
The first book in the series was hard to get into. For me, it was because it was mostly a love story. This second installation of the series is much more action-packed.
Yes. As long as Gretchen Rubin was narrating. I love her expression, tone, and speed of narration.
Finding a book dealing with home is interesting to me, especially since we live in a very transient culture. Least interesting? Gretchen's cushy life.
If Gretchen had read her own work, just like in The Happiness Project.
Not sure. I think I would have enjoyed it more in printed form.
I am thinking about playing this narrator's work for my kids at bedtime to help them fall asleep faster.
I would have cut out much of the minutia that made this book drag.
Just boring! I kept thinking it would get better, but it never did. I want those hours of my life back!
