I've read "Bitter" 3x with the paper book. It is by far one of my favorite books of all time! Listening to it- the only drawback is the narrator gets a little..."Charlie Brown teacher." Listening to Jen's newest book, which she narrated herself, was better due to the fact that Jen emphasized things differently- the way she intended. The footnotes peppered through the book are also hard to understand with an audio book...unless the reader is ready for them.
Overall- still an entertaining, laugh out loud book.
After reading Backseat Saints and Gods in Alabama...I LOVE that Jackson wrote the chapters with Rosemay and Arlene Fleet/Alabama connection from two different perspectives. It adds massive depth to both plot lines. I can see how these characters mirror one another. Both books need each other to be extraordinary. They are great on their own...extraordinary together.
Maybe. I would pre-read a paper copy first
The plot lines combined with the attitude of Junie B were great.
She perfects a Kindergartener's voice.
Yes and no. My kids really liked the stories. However, we kept pausing to talk about why children shouldn't;t speak to adults in the way Junie B does sometimes, also using some words such as
Yes, it was heart-warming supported by Engvall's humorus view on life.
Dinner with his stepmom
I have seen and heard many if his on-stage stand up shows. This differs as it is not a few lines, then funny. He talks about his life but ties in humor along the way.
My extreme reaction was being able to see my husband's point of view/ a man's reasoning.
Recommended for easy listening.
I needed a kick start to my workout program...so as a former book-junkie-now-mommy of three...I have NO time to sit and read. Perfect solution is books on my I-Pod. The only time I can
Hard question. None of the characters are infallible and all have some level of moral standards. My instinct is to say Liza is my favorite, even though she make some very poor choices. Adjacent to her poor choices for herself is a high ability to look out for the well-being of others.
Her voice is intoxicating.
I want to ask Joshilyn Jackson about one specific (minor) character that was not tied up at the end of the story. Why was the character's end left out? What happened to this person?
