So wanted to like this one after enjoying ANYWHERE BUT HERE, but I stopped listening after about 2 hours. Just couldn't get into it.
BTW, did you know Mona Simpson is the sister of Steve Jobs?
I know this has all the potential in the world. I just can't get into it! But I vow to try again. I think i've started this book half a dozen times by now and I still get bored. I'm getting bored just writing this
...and that is why you will enjoy this memoir. Poor Meredith Baxter was truly falling apart on camera for a good part of her life! Don't even get me started on her Lifetime TV dramas era! But MB tells it like it is, sparing no painful detail. it'll make you cringe, laugh and shake your head. She's a sweetheart who has written a very engrossing book. But I grew up on 'Family Ties' so maybe I'm biased. No, it's really good.
SO many characters. This makes it difficult to stay engaged. I had to go back and rewind many times. On my second COMPLETE listen I finally saw the big picture and only then did i truly enjoy this book. That should tell you something. Download if you're willing to do the work. Otherwise get the actual book and read it. A great story!
Wow. You just won't believe your ears. Highly disturbing. Amazing. You won't be able to turn it off. Jaycee's narration really drives it. Speechless.
Ahh, an audiobook with a wonderful narrator! It was a great story as well. Kept me tethered, hard to turn off.
I bought this because it was long. I kept listening because it was good. Not great, but very good. Good enough to keep listening, not great enough to keep listening thru the smallest distraction. I'd call this a cozy story, with familiar characters and pleasant settings. Transports you to the West Village effectively. Doesn't thrill nor disappoint.
Fortunately it doesn't suffer from the overt melodrama it indulges in. Classic setting, creepy characters, a good whodunit with some nice macabre twists.
Kept me hooked in. Absorbing story about the goings-on of privileged teens and the occasional regular kid. Cutthroat emotional hijinks. Good, angsty teen tale with enough restraint to make it enjoyable for any age.
Fantastically transporting. The protagonist is a bit flat but you'll enjoy story nonetheless. Vividly drawn. Good story. Good times. have fun.
...it's JK Rowling! You'll get sucked in and love it.
I admit I got a little bored about 2/3 in, but just a little.
Good whodunit with just enough profanity (a smattering) and r-rated content to keep it edgy without being distasteful.
