Narrator does not have passion or understanding of the subject matter. Dr. Kaku's voice would bring both!
I loved the movie and wanted to learn more about the amazing Jane Hawking through her book. Jane describes herself as one that has a great sense of humor. Unfortunately the unwaveringly somber tone of the narrator never allows the humor or lightheartedness of the author to come through for me. In spite of this, the story is a beautiful story of love, commitment, determination, and eternal optimism. Listen carefully to the words instead of the delivery and you will enjoy the book and respect this woman's strength of character!
Didn't expect much of this impulsive purchase, but ended up loving the book and the narrator. Sorry Mr. Schirner, but at first your voice irritated me, then by chapter 3, I fell in love with the way you intoned all the characters. I let myself be enjoyably tossed around by the author, not trying to figure out the conclusion, and I loved all the twists and turns and unexpected revelations. Fun stuff for those of us who love government conspiracy theories.
I had no idea what to expect with this book, being unfamiliar with Jenny's blog.....OMG, it is hysterical! Finished it in one afternoon --- I just couldn't stop listening! Three more people bought this book after I played the Ex-Lax chapter for them. Jenny Lawson is funny, crude, tender, loving and human. She has issues (and who doesn't), but she has an amazing gift for putting her life's experiences into words that anyone can relate to. If you have a crazy family that you love, then you will love this book!!
Their story of tragedy, struggle and triumph is truly inspiring. To hear Gabby read the last chapter of the book absolutely made me cry with heartfelt joy for her and her family. Go Gabby and Mark!
