    Nora Ephron returns with her first book since the astounding success of I Feel Bad About My Neck, taking a cold, hard, hilarious look at the past, the present, and the future, bemoaning the vicissitudes of modern life, and recalling with her signature clarity and wisdom everything she hasn’t (yet) forgotten. Filled with insights and observations that instantly ring true - and could have come only from Nora Ephron - I Remember Nothing is a pure delight.

    What did you love best about I Remember Nothing?

    I am a 33 year old business woman, and it was lovely to listen to stories of a pioneer career woman like Nora Ephron tell her tales of current and past conquests and misadventures.


    Any additional comments?

    Her intonation can be a little bizarre or redundant, but I always love hearing a writer read their own work. You believe the words more.

    Story

    It's five o'clock in the morning and still dark. Swimming outside the wave break off the Catalina coast, training for her next long-distance swim (she has already crossed the English Channel twice), 17-year-old Lynne Cox senses that something is following her. She worries that it might be a great white shark.

    Carin says: "Brief and lovely."
    "Powerful. This story stuck with me for weeks."

    What made the experience of listening to Grayson the most enjoyable?

    I cannot say enough good things about this audible book. The story is unbelievable, and succinctly told. It took my breath away at times. Lynne Cox is not a great reader, but her writing carries itself and it is interesting to hear her tell her own story. She does an amazing job of taking a powerful story to an almost mystical level with her metaphors and life lessons. If you avoid the world of self help and spirituality, this might feed that part of your soul without beating you over the head with dogma. I loved that you could listen to it in an afternoon, or, as I did, while taking a long walk. Enjoy!
