    Is it possible to write a sidesplitting novel about the breakup of the perfect marriage? If the writer is Nora Ephron, the answer is a resounding yes. For in this inspired confection of adultery, revenge, group therapy, and pot roast, the creator of Sleepless in Seattle reminds us that comedy depends on anguish as surely as a proper gravy depends on flour and butter.

    Doggy Bird says: "Delicious listening experience!"
    "Heartwarming and honest"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! It was funny, honest, warm & friendly.


    Any additional comments?

    I would not necessarily have gone for this had it not been for Meryl Streep's narration, but it was thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended.

    FBI Special Agent Kate O'Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world's most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years, the only name she's cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.
