I purchased this book because Julia Roberts is producing this movie and is staring as the main character, Georgia Walker. (in 2008) And I am a big fan of hers...
I wasn't crazy about the narrator. The way she narrated, it make the character's sound old and stuffy. So I didn't quite relate to any of them. Also, the main character, Georgia was 38, but the way the author wrote about her, she sounded much older. Because I am also 38, I felt like she made Georgia sound like a great aunt.
If you are just expecting to find a book to keep you midly entertained then go for it. Because I purchase these books to be used for when I am excercising, I really like these books that are so great, I can't stop listening to it, and therefore, I excerise longer. This just wasn't one of these books.
I like that she narrated it. In the beginning, I was just saying, dear god, this girl was so stupid and kept getting herself into so much trouble. But after a while, I began to see that she just wasn't brought up normally. She wasn't giving the tools to deal with life.
It was an interesting story. And in the end, I found her to be one tough cookie.
I actually purchased it over a year ago but somehow never started it.
In the very beginning since it was based on 6 different people, it was hard to follow but very quickly I was able to. Very good character structure and a very interesting story.
I have very happy with this book. Rob did a great job narrating this/his book.
It was very interesting and kept me entertained.
I highly recommend this book.
I liked the narrator, not bad. I also like that there were 4 storylines, so I didn't get bored. Very easy to follow. Not rocket science, but if you want to turn off your brain for a while, this is good.
I didn't like the male narrator, I would of preferred the female to do the whole book. I also hated the male character, he was weak and spinless. I couldn't feel for him at all.
What a great book! It was so well written and the narrator, Hope Davis was so good.
The story took me completely off guard! I highly recommend this one. I haven't downloaded any books by this author before, but I am about to.
It was okay. It held my attention. I really liked the narrator, especially since she had to narrate the three different perspectives of Mom, older sister and younger sister.
Many of the reviews were very helpful to me. Julie Powell as the narrator, she did a good job. Heck it was her own story so I wouldn't of wanted some other narrator to do it.
It did take some really great courage for her to write about this/these experiences.
She was very honest and I give her credit for it, but I think she has come off very arrogant and selfish, by wanting her cake and eating it too.
It kept me on the edge of my seat.
She is so funny. I loved that she also narrated it. I couldn't imagine anyone else doing it. If you like Kathy Griffin, you will LOVE this book. I highly recommend.
