I would highly recommend this audiobook to a friend, if that friend likes Julie Andrews. I learned a lot about her life that I wasn't familiar with before, like her Broadway starring role in My Fair Lady.
I love the way Julie Andrews' voice sounds and her genuine revelations, like she's sitting in the room and telling you her memories.
I've listened through this multiple times now and I recommend it highly for anyone interested in organizing his/her home, office, closet, pantries, etc. It's step by step so there's no guessing about how he actually organizes his own spaces, like in his dresser the bottoms are in the bottom drawers and shirts are in the top drawers. Adopting his tools and tricks has been really intuitive for me and now my belongings keep returning to their homes, a concept I didn't know about before this. It's helped me avoid buying things I already have but previously couldn't find. DVDs have a home. Makeup has a home. Everything is where it should be.
I turn this book on to get myself in a cleaning mindset. It just inspires me to keep going.
I love Andrew Mellen's voice and his practical tips.
"Like with Like" and "Everything has a home" (including the trashcan for old magazines!)
I bought this book to listen to during my drive to a funeral. It was an interesting perspective of a dead girl watching what her family did after she went missing and what the afterlife might be like. I most enjoyed the suspense of the story and it was a proverbial page-turner.
The author narrates this book and other people have commented on it. I thought she was fine - sort of like an author book-reading. She is somewhat monotonous and uses a similar tone for the characters, but has a good sense of when to pause and the story is easy to follow.
