    With her disarming, intimate, completely accessible voice, and dry sense of humor, Nora Ephron shares with us her ups and downs in I Feel Bad About My Neck, a candid, hilarious look at women who are getting older and dealing with the tribulations of maintenance, menopause, empty nests, and life itself.

    "That Voice!"
    Overall

    Sometimes the term "Narrated by the Author" is a good thing - think Bill Bryson, for instance. Unfortunately, Nora Ephron is no Bill Bryson. Her narration of this funny, smart book about life as an urban woman "of a certain age" is so grating that it is difficult to listen to for any significant length of time. Although Ms. Ephron's voice is high-pitched and whiny, I could have lived with that. Far more annoying is her sing-song cadence, and overly dramatic inflection. This is probably the only Audio Book I have ever heard that made me wish I had chosen the print version instead.
