I couldn't make it through the first chapter. Who wants to listen to someone's inner thoughts about their daily "to do" list? It's bad enough to have your own inner though to-do list... Sorry, Anne Tyler. I was giving you a second try after reading an article that made me think I would really like you as a person. Just not my type of book... and the narrator's voice was so annoying on this book. Like listening to a fussy aunt who is stuck in the 50's, trying to always do what society wants from her, rather than listening to someone's real and interesting inside thoughts.
Boredom. Wishing I hadn't used my credit on this book.
Hard to say.... if I'd read it at a different time of the year, it'd probably be mid to high favorites range. Listening to it in December, it was near the top! Just the kind of story I wanted to hear to remind me about the real spirit of Christmas.
I had to stop listening for a few days after one chapter's close devastated me.
This is the first Glenn Beck performance / book I've listened to.
I could have! I listen on my commute, so it helps me pass the time and stay awake. :)
I would say Beck's voice added very much to the experience. He's quite theatrical!
