This was a cute girly book. I am almost 30, was bored of the books I was reading, wanted something fluffy and fun in the summer. This did the trick.
I have wanted to read this book for years now. I attempted to read this 2 years ago and could not get past 100 pages. The content, while incredibly honest, was too raw for me.
I recently attempted to listen to it on audio, but again, am finding it too much. Depressing, dry and again, raw. I work in addictions so I think that this book is just too much of the same stuff I deal with in my everyday life. Not for me, but maybe for someone who is unfamiliar with addiction, specializes in addiction, or studying addiction.
Because I was reluctant to read yet another celebrity biography, I was reluctant to get this book.
I read all the reviews and decided to give it a go.
I wasn't disappointed.
It gives a new face to Rob Lowe. I would definitely recommend.
Not as good as A Complicated Kindness, which I loved, but alright.
It's more of the same, funny, cute and a variety of unique characters.
But, again, not as good as A Complicated Kindness.
I was reluctant to purchase this audio book because of all the comments about it being narrated in the voice of a 5 year old boy and how annoying/difficult it was to listen to.
However, I must say that the voice was not that bothersome for me. I loved this book, I thought it was original and unique. I would recommend it in audio or print.
I started listening to this book because a friend of mine recommended it during the "50 Shades" craze. I was surprised at how much I disliked this book. I did not get very far. I found the content not sexy but disturbing.
This was a great pregnancy book. Lots of good information. Not a waste of time. I listened to it on my ipod while in bed with nausea for a good 2 weeks. I recommend it for anyone who is expecting a child.
One thing that really bothers me about celebrity 'biography' type books is when they do not narrate the book themselves. I mean really? I listened to another of Jenny McCarthy's books - that she did not narrate - and was very disappointed. The only reason I purchased this one is because I'm pregnant and a girlfriend of mine recommended it. It has some honest truths about pregnancy that you may not find in other books, but I found the narrator obnoxious.
This was the first book by this author that I listened to.
It was brokeIn into 3 parts and after the first 2 parts I was frustrated that it was taking so long to get the story finished. I ended up fast-forwarding it to the end just to find out what happened.
I will probably not read another book by this author. Not my style.
This was by far the longest book I've listened to on Audible. I did like the storyline, but found myself wishing it was shorter, more condensed. I think that the same story could have been told in less pages and that it would actually have been better that way. I am torn about listening to the second book, because even though I want to know what happens (because this book is left at a total cliff-hanger ending) I know that the book is going to be forever long and that really irritates me. I suppose it is a unique story and like all literature should be enjoyed as such, but really....24hours of audio? Really?
