I dont know I didnt read the print version
the boldfaced HONESTY. And the quirky humor.
Her chapters about various feminine issues like underware, fashion and abortion. Laugh out loud moments like "I am Pro big panties" and her honest description of her abortion decision and experience.
Her honest description of her abortion decision and experience. So many women don't have the courage to talk about this issue from their own real experience.
You don't need to be a feminist to read this book...but it is HONEST with a capital H. I love the frank discussion on every topic from motherhood, weight and self image, masturbation and sexuality, etc. She leaves no stone unturned with her views on all things that challenge the modern woman.
Its just went nowhere and nowhere and nowhere...I just couldn't get past the first few chapters.
Make SOMETHING happen other than one thing from 8 different people's perspectives.
I returned it. horrible
Probably not again, but she is witty and interesting to listen to, so I would read another book authored by her.
Yes, just because her tone is so entertaining.
When she describes the ridiculous experiences she has had on the streets of NYC...extremely funny. The story about the guy who called her a cunt while she was on a blind date was a riot.
She is not just the "lesbian, horrifically obese and/or disfigured best friend of the beautiful skinny perfect lead female character".
If you like Tina Fey's book, you will like this, they are so darn similar in personality its weird.
I read the book in hardcopy and listening to this made it "better". Many of the main characters are likeable and complex.
Reminds me of Mistborn in tone. You have your heros, and your flawed heros, and your supporting characters with a lot of spunk.
Kaladin who's so valiant and so deeply scarred from life experiences you cant help but root for him.
Yes, until I get to the chapters about Shallan...who's wit is predictable and is just a shallow character. Skip those chapters until she cuts her arm in a fake suicide attempt, that when her story line gets tolerable.
Looking forward to the second book.
yes, and it was only because of how well the narrator captured the main characters personalities so well!
Of course ANNE, how can you not. But of course Mathew has a special place in my heart always.
She captured Anne PERFECTLY. She had the range to do the other supporting characters just as well.
"A story for all little girls, actual and at heart!"
YES. I have to say I HATE dyspopia..period. And I wasn't sure about the slight dystopia plot..but I think some of the reviewers complained it was too technical...and you had me at technical. The characters become family. You cry at the loss. You are alarmed by the humanity...but not surprised at humans as a whole utter failure on this planet and leave the story being not so sure if they have learned abything...but gosh this book makes you ponder very deep and disturbing thoughts.
Actually, the Martian. You will see why when you read it.
I think both narrators did excellent jobs. And I like when there is a female and male narrator for the different parts...helps shake things up a bit.
"And one day, the stars dissapeared..."
I have read this book probably 20 times and seen the movie as many times. The narrator makes all the difference in the world to a very familiar and loved story.
I love the Davey character. Even better as he was narrated. I find myself saying after recently listening to thi sbook again "Why (insert question here)...I wanna know."
In Anne of green Gables...and she was the reason why I chose her narration on this second book. Some reviewers complained she was a bit over the top...I thought she captured Anne in all her essence...and the so important supporting characters. She had a wonderful range that made her believable as most of the characters.
I ALWAYS CRY no matter how many times I read this book. SO TOUCHING.
A must read for all little girls..from young to old. I am almost 40 now and love the story just as much as I did when I was a little girl.
I have read the actual book and now listened to it via audible. Brandon Sanderson can develop characters like nobody's business..and to hear them narrated by a good narrator makes it so much more of an experience rather than just reading the book.
The protagonist. because of his truly empathetic nature.

No not really because I had read it before. but I still tear up at a couple of parts no matter what. (the lake scenes in particular..I wont spoil it).
Because the main character is so likeable. I want this dude as a drinking buddy.
I think anyone who loves Star Trek TNG or DS9 will love this book. It is SUPER TECHNICAL. I love the technical explanations...if they can convince me that it is scientifically possible, I want to hear it. I would rather hear technical explanations than have none and just think the whole time Im reading "this could never happen, this is so fake!". I really felt this could happen now.
The lead character. Sarcastic, Charismatic, Halarious, super nerdy and just someone you want to hang out with.
YES. The suspense was crazy at times. The end...holy cow I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat with my butt cheeks clenched just hoping for a miracle.
BEST SCIFI BOOK I HAVE READ IN YEARS.
I don't think anything. The immediate "superhero-comic" feel of the narration made me cringe.
I am sad because I really enjoyed MOST of Brandon Sanderson's other books...this was such a stretch out of his norm...not for me at all.
Just a warning the narrator is very animated. I felt like he was reading a comic book to me.
Disappointment and cringe worthy narration.
thank goodness for the return option...I only made it through 30 minutes of the book and promptly removed it from my phone.
Enders Game and Dune. All of these books draw you in to fall in love with the protagonist, present very human and real conditions where the characters act very human (i.e make mistakes, act our of emotion, make choices based on life experiences). All of these books make you think "HMMM". You are challenged as a reader to think about the moral challenges and implications of these issues and how these situations could be so emotionally straining to a society (race, species, etc.).
His reading was excellent. Very believable.
