    Story
    (2361)

    Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.

    Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle - and people in general - has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands.

    S says: "One of my top 10 listens of the year!"
    "Narrator extraordinaire for hilarious tale!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Where'd You Go, Bernadette the most enjoyable?

    The excellent narration brought the individual characters to life. I could picture each of the exchanges in emails and encounters as if they were a movie in my head. Reading this book by myself would never have been so entertaining, even though the writing is perfectly crisp and the story line is really funny. I bought this book without knowing anything about it and look forward to my daily walks just to get further along in the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Where'd You Go, Bernadette?

    Without spoiling anything, the scene where the entire hillside of Bernadette's house slips down to crush her neighbor's durning a fundraiser for their children's school. Who knew that blackberry vines could be the only thing holding up a hillside?


    Which character – as performed by Kathleen Wilhoite – was your favorite?

    Bernadette!


    Who was the most memorable character of Where'd You Go, Bernadette and why?

    Bernadette! You have to listen to her, especially in the email to her former professor in LA. Just buy this book! It is so entertaining!
