    At 23, Ruth Saunders headed west with her 70-year-old grandma in tow, hoping to be hired as a television writer. Four years later, she's hit the jackpot when she gets The Call: the sitcom she wrote, The Next Big Thing, has gotten the green light, and Ruthie's going to be the show-runner. But her dreams of Hollywood happiness are threatened by demanding actors, number-crunching executives, an unrequited crush on a boss, and her grandmother's impending nuptials.

    I really enjoyed the storyline, and it has changed the way I watch TV, thinking about all that went into the prodcution process. The narration- just ok.

    The narration of this book is absolutely breathtaking. The book itself is wonderful, but the narration is a work of art, no less.

    Story

    I really like the story line. I like 3 out of the 4 narrators, which made it a little tricky to enjoy the whole book, but after I got into it, the narrator I liked least wasn't as bad. All and all, this was my first audiobook and I'm hooked!

  • Veganist: Lose Weight, Get Healthy, Change the World

    Kathy Freston wasn't born a vegan. The best-selling author and renowned wellness expert actually grew up on chicken-fried steak and cheesy grits and loved nothing more than BBQ ribs and vanilla milkshakes. Not until her 30s did she embrace the lifestyle of a veganist - someone who eats a plant-based diet not just for their own personal well-being but for the whole web of benefits it brings to our ecosystem and beyond. Kathy's shift toward this new life was gradual -she leaned into it -but the impact was profound. Now Kathy shows us how to lean into the veganist life.

    Story

    I did not enjoy the narration at all, I felt there was way too much intonation, and it was hard to concentrate on the content. As to the content- I didn't find it very interesting, even though I have a vegan husband and am interested in the topic in general. I was disapointed.

    All decent parents want to do what's best for their children. What Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother reveals is that the Chinese just have a totally different idea of how to do that. Western parents try to respect their children's individuality, encouraging them to pursue their true passions and providing a nurturing environment. The Chinese believe that the best way to protect your children is by preparing them for the future and arming them with skills, strong work habits, and inner confidence.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the book in print, but I enjoyed hearing the narration of the author.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother?

    I don't there there was one moment, but it was hard to stop listening.


    Have you listened to any of Amy Chua’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could have, but I listne to books while commutting, so I only heard it a chunck at a time.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the book and naration.
