Helen Simonson's beautifully imagined characters and Peter Altschuler's amusing and poignant narration join together delightfully in this audiobook. While I'm sure that Ms. Simonson's book stands up well in print, Mr Altschuler brings great heart and, well, OOMPH, and drew me along to the exciting conclusion. Exactly what I'm looking for in a great audiobook - very satisfying.
This book confirms that true stories are the most poignant and the funniest.
My pre-teen daughter, teen son and I listened to Julia's story five or six times during a cross-country road trip, cracking us up through 7 states. Several passages have entered our family's lexicon.
Thanks Julia for helping us deal with the loss of our husband/father. There is still plenty to laugh about!
