What's not to love?
Carrie Fisher, addicted to brutal truth, delivered the fascinating details of her life with her classic self-effacing humor.
Well... 'Wishful Drinking' -- Ms. Fisher's memoir that also let's her fans know what her Wonder Bread years were like
Everyone has a 'readervoice' in their head that turns on when reading a book. You have your own style, and it works; besides, what else are you gonna do for a narrator?
When an author, who is also an actor, reads you their work, you know you're getting it exactly the way they wrote and meant it to be heard.
So you get the added novelty of filling in a sort of emotional gap between the author and audience.
You could... in my case we did listen to it from beginning to end while driving (skidding) through a torrential downpour while looking for an open restaurant on the backroads of Virginia one Sunday.
I loved it.
Absorbing; Real; Charming
Hildy is a real person who speaks directly to the reader. Others have mentioned the absolute perfection of Mary Beth Hurt's narration. I couldn't imagine anyone doing a better job....
The very last...but I won't give that away.
I save my audio books for my walks but there were times I wanted to listen to more after my usual hour with the book. I resisted, though.
This book is a little slow to get into any plot lines... not too slow, just a little. But after you do get into the meat of the book you see where the early parts just enhance the character development and intrigues. I really enjoyed this book and Mary Beth Hurt was absolutely perfect. I recommend it without reservation.
There were many... I think when Cora begins to see how she has learned from her exposure to Louise.
Ms. McGovern did a deluxe job of coloring all the characters.
Louise, of course. Why? I think she would be a hell-bending fun character to hang out with.
Laura Moriarty did a fantastic job of creating a cast of decent characters. By 'decent,' I mean people with human foibles who confront and deal with them in a ethically conscience manner.
After I finished the book, I missed Louise and Cora on my morning walks.
