Yes, but only the hard copy or paperback because of the audio book narration.
I believe the narrator had a health problem, maybe had a stroke or something similar. In my opinion, he should not still be narrating books. Sometimes he would run out of breath before finishing a sentence, or it seemed he had a hard time "pushing" out a word. He would also pause in the middle of sentences. I really think it was hard for him to get the words out. I was worn out listening by the time I finished the book and did so only because of the interesting subject matter.
Yes, if you can tolerate the narration.
Mimi Alford's account of her affair with JFK was very interesting and told with heart-felt honesty. No stone was left unturned as she unveiled her story. Being the same age as Mimi in 1962, I can relate to a 19 yr. old girl's excitement caused by her experiences in Washington, DC. Young and innocent, Mimi, gave no excuses for her actions, other than she was star-struck and overwhelmed by the affection shown her by the President of the United States. The narrator, Susan Denaker, did a superb job of telling the story, and I felt as though Mimi, herself, was speaking.
No one particular part. All chapters were thoroughly interesting.
There were no funny parts. I almost felt just like I was there, as the descriptions were so vivid.
Recommend the audiobook above other versions due to the excellent narration. Enjoyed this book and appreciated Mimi's honesty. Also, I have a much lower opinion of JFK than before I read the book.
I do believe in angels, but Lorna Byrne's account of her experiences is hard to believe as true. It was an interesting and uplifting book, and I really liked the narration by Sile Bermingham, who had a smooth and easy style. Lorna states one time she was made invisible by the angels, God (or the higher power) ruffled her hair and sat and talked with her. So many of the experiences she says she had are very hard to consider as real. As a child, Lorna Byrne, was thought to have mental problems by others. They may have been right.
The book was very good, and I really like Allison's voice. That is why I gave it 4 stars. She seemed so genuine, more than a professional reader ever could, and I wanted to learn all about her and the books she has written - UNTIL - I saw her on the Dec. 2010 episode of Real Housewives on which she was a guest. She was drinking Vodka, smoking, and cursing (vulger words that had to be bleeped). My heart sank, and I was devastated. She showed a lot of arrogance regarding her psychic abilities. Why would she do these things when she knew it was being filmed? Was it the Vodka? I think the people mentioned in her book are real, and that she has a gift, but I no longer wish to know more about her.
This audio book was interesting and, for the most part, well-read. The narrator lowered her voice to a gruff rumbling a little too many times while quoting others. This seemed to take away from the pleasant and smooth flow of the book, even though her voice was soothing and easy to listen to otherwise. The author referred to her sister much too often, almost as though the sister should have written the book. Also, the author seemed obsessed with sex, and gave so much time to this subject that it became boring. The book was interesting, however, and worth the price.
