I wouldn't take the time to write a review, but I really don't understand how this audiobook got so many good reviews. This story reads like a moment by moment walk through of two texas girls and their trip to the big New York. The book is very simplistic, so it got boring very quickly. The only reason I listened through the whole book was that I had paid for the audiobook.
This bookis a good relaxing listen. I enjoyed this book for a day when I want to relax with a simple story that makes me laugh out loud. The funny thing is that now I really want to go shopping. I am now onto the Manhattan book and am enjoying that one too.
This book was too gruesome. What makes that even worse is that you know the events are real. I couldn't listen for very long.
The book is good and would get 5 stars if the book wrapped up the loose ends. However, it becomes apparent at the end that this is only the beginning of the story. I feel like there is no conclusion or resolution at the end of the book. It wasn't till i was just about done with the book that I realized this is the start of a series. That would have been nice to know from the beginning. I also agree with others that they could have cut a few hours out of the story.
I loved the story and would give it 5 stars in a heart beat, except for the explicit sex scenes. I would give the book 5 stars if the scenes were removed. I loved the storyline. This was one of the few stories that I have listened to that I felt had a solid ending that wrapped up the loose ends and was a great ending.
This version uses modern lingo and is very condensed. All of the shakespearian romance or style is lost. This would be ok for a highschool student that is trying to get a quick summary of what the story means. This is not for someone that wants to listen to Shakespeare's actual work.
I enjoyed listening to this book. I believe the author was honest and sincere. I think the best part of the book was listening to his outlook on life. The Buffett family has such a great outlook. I only ranked the book a 3 because it wasn't very applicable to my life. My outlook on life was already that you can choose which direction to go in life, so this book didn't offer any advice that I really wanted to act on.
