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.
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!
I reached a point that I didn't want to 'put it down' (stop listening).
I felt that she did what her mother taught her to do, 'entertain people'.
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!!!
If I get over the voice or it gets better I will re-rate the book.
