I was a little unsure I would like this book for the first few minutes of the audio. I wasn't crazy about the tone of the narrator or the story but when things got started it really moved. I was glad I finished it to the end and I will be giving another Nora Roberts book a try. The books I really enjoy I usually give a second or third listen to months later. I will be listening to this again in a few months.
I loved the lead character and the technical aspects of the book.
This was a great listen from beginning to end and well worth the purchase. I enjoyed the narration and was able to picture each person in my mind. I highly recommend this book.
I truly enjoyed the performance by Becky Hindley. The story was lite and funny. It's a quick listen but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I loved the english and scottish accent. There is no way I would have been able to imagine that dialect in my mind as I read.
The grass may look greener on the other side but watch out, it could be astroturf.
I READ this book way back when it first came out and though it was over 25 years ago I still remembered that I loved it. I needed a long book so I decided to listen to it. I absolutely love the narration. Steven does a fabulous job. I couldn't wait to put on my headphones on each day. Worth every penny or credit you use to purchase.
I loved how he was able to bring life to the words. When "It" came out my heart started racing as if I was in the book.
I listened to this every chance that I got. If I had 34 hours to spare all in one sitting I would have definately listened to it in one sitting. This is a great book if you have a long drive or flight or your stuck in bed for medical reasons.
I purchased this book because of the reviews and they were all correct. This is a smart book. I really enjoyed his style of writing. I didn't get the feeling that this book was written to be a "tell all" of hollywood but to tell the story of how Rob Lowe became the Rob Lowe of today. I actually found myself using some of his advice to his younger self for my 14 year old son, "Don't worry, it will all work out. When it's time for you to have a girlfriend she will show up." If you grew up in the Brat Pack era, like I did, you will find it interesting to hear some of the stories about the movies of those times. Oh, and I loved Rob's voice as the narrator, very pleasant.
