The stories were really more weird than funny, and in places actually somewhat creepy. But the book offers some interesting analyses of anxiety, probably worth a listen for that, but if you're looking for "quirky and fun" look to Jenny Lawson instead.
I loved this story! From the Dark Jewels series, I know Anne Bishop has a knack for rich, deep, well-explored worlds that offer a whole different perspectives on the supernatural, and this is another amazing read along those lines.
But the reader was sadly unspectacular. Maybe I'm spoiled by readers like Luke Daniels and Michael Kramer, but this seemed slow and pauses poorly-timed, and sometimes the emotions in the words didn't match what came out of her mouth. I eventually turned the play-speed up to 125%, that helped some, but it was still a bit stilted. FYI, if you're picky about readers you might prefer to read this one in text.
I loved this book. It was very funny while illustrating all too clearly what it's like to live with an Anxiety disorder. There were so many funny moments, but also sweet moments, sad moments, and lessons learned and shared. Overall a great listen! :)
