This story actually kept me SITTING IN PARKING SPACE listening to the end, after a 1-1/2 hour commute home. The narrator performed the many characters so well, and the story itself is informative, emotional, and captivating. To top it off, it's a true story.
Facinating account of Nora's 1 year masquerade as a man. The experience taught her lessons about both genders, and broke many stereotypes. Lots of humorous and serious scenarios. The author's voice is a bit monotone, like she has not fully shed her "male" tone. NOT a male-bashing book at all--guys actually get alot of sympathy and credit.
Another excellent King novel. As usual, he tends to go on longer than needed sometimes and the first few chapters are less fun than the last as he "sets the stage." Yet it always kept me guessing, and was well worth the time.
Listening to this audio was boring and tedious. The ideas of relaxing, appreciating nature and one's own company are good ones. Yet much of the time the author writes exceedingly about things so mundane and common that it's boring. Also, since it is entirely narrative, there is no diversity in the reader's manner. Not good for a long commute in the dark when I'm already sleepy.
