I enjoyed it and listened to it in 2 days.
the overall tone of the book. She is so adorable and likeable and relatable. I think that is her strength. I'd like to see her focus more on that and she is really good at doing audiobooks. doesn't sound like she is reading from a script
There is something endearing about Judy Greer that makes her almost instantly likable. There is nothing mind blowing about the book as far as content, except to say that it made me like her more. Listening to this book is like making a new friend: you get to hear all the past stories, thoughts, ideas, dreams, hopes, and gaffes. it's a one sided relationship at this point, but you know, she IS an actress (hee, hee). Very enjoyable listen.
but you can't half them. I was completely engrossed in this book. It felt metamorphic for me UNTIL the last 30 minutes, then it got all complicated by the same BS I thought she was trying to overcome and escape. Disappointed in the ending, BUT the rest was soooooo good that it made it worth purchase.
but I did anyway. Even read the follow up book. I'm actually looking forward to a third; just don't take it too seriously.
This was a fun audiobook with snappy dialogue that kept me interested until the end. The finale was a little anticlimactic, but the interactions amongst the characters kept me interested. I already bought the second. Nice, light listening.
I read this book last year, and I enjoyed the book so much that I bought the audio book to listen to as I run (I enjoy comedy when running).
Why didn't Chelsea Handler narrate this? She narrated her last book, and it was GREAT GREAT GREAT. The narrator was reading a story to me, and it felt like that. Like I was just being read to; Chelsea was so good in her last audio book I felt like she was telling me a story.
The book is the same, but I think I would have enjoyed this more with Chelsea Handler. Even the sarcasm and some of the jokes didn't come through.
This is the first time I have ever reviewed a book, but I just HAD to put my opinion out there. This is BY FAR thee best audio book I have ever listened to. The narrators are TELLING me a story (not reading one to me). They were fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. I laughed out loud numerous times, and I was brought to tears numerous times.
It was so very well written that when it was over I was sad. I wanted more. I needed to know what happened to Skeeter, Minnie, Celia (who I loved), and Abeline (s/p). I loved these women, and I was sad that it was over. I enjoyed having them in my life, and the content of the story is moving and touching. It made me want a better America and a better world. All of that in a work of fiction? You betcha.
I was not sure about listening to this in the unabridged format, but I absolutely loved it. Once I was in I had to keep listening to find out. One of my New Year's Resolutions was to discover the classics, and I have just loved this and Sense & Sensibility and Pride & Prejudice. I plan on listening to all the Bronte sisters. Wuthering Heights is next.
