I really loved the narration of this book. The narrator did a great job of giving each character their own voice & engaging the listener in the story.
It's hard to choose just one. Each character adds their own element to the story.
I don't want to spoil the story for anyone.
I missed reading this classic as a kid growing up. I always heard about it but never read it. I figured "what am I waiting for?" so I picked up a copy on Audible. I'm glad I did. Even as a 30 year old female, I enjoyed listening to the story & imagining that I was Ender. It's obviously written for a younger audience but this classic absolutely blows the current drivel for young audiences out of the water. If you missed this one as a kid, listen now-- you won't regret it!
I didn't dislike the topic of the book (obviously, I did choose to purchase the book) but the narrator was a bore. Perhaps someone who enjoys something lulling them to sleep with their voice while they're trying to listen to a book?
No. I found her voice too low & soothing. Not a great choice for a narrator of an audiobook.
Too dry. I was interested in the topic but the narration bored me & made it hard to focus & want to continue on. I only got through about half of the book by the time I gave up. I got the point & didn't need to listen more.
Seemed too long. By the end of part one I understood the arguments in the book & was not enticed to start the second half.
Perhaps this is one of those books that is better read on your own than an audioboook. I think the topic has merit & is interesting I just didn't like the delivery of the audiobook itself.
Out of this world story. I cannot believe it's true. Stories like this are why I prefer non-fiction over fiction.
I don't know. Mostly he was fine but once I realized it sounded like 2 people were reading it in the middle of sentences, it became difficult to listen without distraction. It seemed as if they went back in later & re stated portions of sentences. Therefore volume & inflection can vary in a single sentence. It's not terribly often but once I noticed it, it drove me a little nutty. If you haven't listened yet, try to forget I mentioned this. The story is incredible & this quirk is easily overlooked.
Yes. The story is strange but thought provoking. I enjoyed the story & look forward to seeing how the movie compares since I think it would be hard to follow the book beyond a loose framework.
Maybe. Depends on the topic. The story was good but it was a little rote. I guess that goes with the theme of the book though.
I loved this audiobook. I'd listen to it again especially if I had a long drive coming up.
Tina's stories are great & you feel like you're getting a "behind the scenes" on everything you've seen her in on tv.
Give this book a try. You'll be glad you did.
YES YES YES. I tried to read this book initially & just couldn't get into it. I think the large number of characters & Swedish names of people & places made it confusing for me to sink into the story line. My mom read the book & highly recommended it so I thought I'd give the audiobook a try. I'm so glad I did. It was much easier to get into & the narrator is engaging.
Yes. When the comedian can read their own book to you, I feel the experience is much more enhanced!
It's honest & funny. Comedians always embellish but it's fun to listen to the stories & struggles especially when it's done in a humorous fashion.
Listen to this book. It's great. I listened to it while driving a long distance & was so glad to have Mindy along for the ride to entertain me.
Maybe after a couple of years I would. I would certainly recommend the book though.
Not really sure. I don't tend to listen to a lot of fiction so I can't compare it to much else.
No but I enjoyed the story & performance.
Great story with colorful characters. It's not as much of a "love" story as I expected but that is perfectly ok. I felt the characters were very dynamic & relateable despite the story being set in a time long ago.
The honesty in the book is great. Rachel Dratch has a self depreciating style that doesn't make you feel bad for her or question her confidence. She also answers a question I had been wondering...."What have you been doing since SNL?"
Tina Fey's Bossypants. Rachel talks about Tina in the book & they're friends.
Phone calls from her agent reenacted.
I listened to this book on the train & had to keep myself from cracking up out loud. At times I had to pause the book so I could enjoy a good laugh without missing anything!
