I didn't think this book would ever end. It was good from time to time, mainly at the first but then it dragged for hours. Just not my style I guess. Seems like the whole story could have been about half as long.
Apparently I wasn't familiar with Nora Roberts and simply got taken in by all the rave reviews. I tried to like the story but just couldn't hang with the teeny-bopper scene.
the story dragged in spite of (too many) intricate twists and turns. I listened all the way to the end just to protect my investment. Nope. I just did not like this book. In the future I will watch for both author and narrator and avoid them.
I don't usually like books that are read by the author but this one wouldn't be the same if read by any one other. I was on the verge of purchasing the Kindle edition when my librarian g-daughter insisted I go with the audio version. So glad that I took her advice. I laughed all the way through. Another Audible book that I was listening to (and 85% done) had to wait. Once I started Bossypants, there was no going back.
Just listening to the long winded descriptions of just about everything in this book is totally exhausting, not to mention boring. The monotone delivery doesnt help. DH used my car and noted that the radio was on (instead of the bluetooth device thru which I listen to my books). That's a first in a couple of years!! I am deleting this book.
I like Faye Kellerman but couldn't stay with this story. Usually I like the whole Decker thing but this must have been written before she refined her characters. It dragged and the thisonesaid this and thatonesaid that was exasperating. I quit halfway through part 1. Sure would like to know what happened to the little kid but just couldn't take anymore.
I really enjoyed the author's funny but no-nonsense delivery of truths that I know but fail to use in everyday life. The pepe-le-peu accent just makes it that much more enjoyable. I actually SAW her ideas in action when I was in France. Just wish I'd read/head the book first.
I forced myself to listen to the whole of Part I hoping this story was going to get better. It didn't. This 2-part book is about ONE day in the life of two very ordinary people. Miniscule detail surrounds the most mundane events. It had 5 stars but now I notice that the 5 stars came from only one review. My mistake!
