    Would you consider the audio edition of My Mother Was Nuts to be better than the print version?

    Listening to the author read in her own voice was great, but she isn't young Laverne anymore. It took a bit of time to get used to her 'mature' sound. I felt that at moments she was going through the motions of reading the words, but for the most part she delivered her part in an honest, matter of fact way. She never apologizes for the choices she made. She was living her life as we all do...one day at a time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Mother Was Nuts?

    The opening is pretty funny-getting robbed by ninjas. There are moments that the emotion gets the better of her. It made her very likeable!


    Which character – as performed by Penny Marshall – was your favorite?

    Herself


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

    I reached a point that I didn't want to 'put it down' (stop listening).


    Any additional comments?

    I felt that she did what her mother taught her to do, 'entertain people'.

    While walking home from work one evening, Jeff Manning is struck by a car and killed. Two women fall to pieces at the news: His wife, Claire, and his co-worker Tish. Reeling from her loss, Claire must comfort her grieving son as well as contend with funeral arrangements, well-meaning family members, and the arrival of Jeff's estranged brother, who was her ex-boyfriend. Tish volunteers to attend the funeral on her company's behalf, but only she knows the true risk of inserting herself into the wreckage of Jeff's life.

    E. says: "The Voice of Claire"
    "Ugh! Claire's voice!"

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I have just started listening and am not sure I can continue. Claire's voice draws out the ends of every sentence!! It is annoying and difficult to listen to. I wish I had listened to a sample before I purchased. I won't make that mistake again!!!


    Any additional comments?

    If I get over the voice or it gets better I will re-rate the book.
