The book is written from a stereotypical neurotic New Yorker. I couldn't finish the book because she keep ranting about herself and the small mindedness that makes it almost painful to grasp other cultures kept getting on my nerves.
I'd like it to be funnier, in the lines of "Pretty little lies."
Yes, I got this one because I had listened to "Pretty little lies" and LOVED it. This one is completely different. It's OK, but not what I was looking for.
Yes, that's how I came about Liane Moriarty. I like her performance.
Not sure. I had a hard time with the english accent of the reader and found myself getting distracted from the book. For a while I was considering moving on, but the story was interesting.
Have it read by someone with a more clear accent.
Good question. I have to think about that one.
Yes. The book seems good, but in written form. It's very detailed, almost academic, it needs to be read.
The audio performance was fine. I just found that the content is not a great fit for an audiobook.
Absolutely. It kept me bitting my nails start to finish. I like the characters and the focus on human emotions and non-verbal communication.
Jack I suppose. He's enigmatic and with his silences and grunts leaves a lot to be interpreted.
When Jack and Nadia go back to Evelyn's house and they are all pointing guns at each other.
I want to get the rest of the series!!!
Hilarious, entertaining, and imagination stimulating.
Why, emperor Molusk of course. He has an utmost rational approach to everything, yet he is also arrogant and polite at the same time. It's a fabulously complex character.
Brilliant. The british accent makes it even better.
Made me laugh so many times! I re-listened to it with my son and by myself. So funny and creative!
Tough one. I read (or listen) to non fiction, science, psychology, fiction, magic, fantasy. I would put it in the same category as "Objects of my Affection."
The main character's introspection triggered by fulfilling the items on the list "in the spirit they were written."
OK. Not superb but not astonishing either.
I would take out Troy, Marisa's brother. I got the feeling that there was more to the character and would like to know what was going on there.
How to live mindfully, in the here and now and experience life as it is.
It is a series of talks Pema Chodron gave during a retreat. She is very light hearted, and even funny.
The moment when a wasp comes in during the talk and stands on her nose.
I was looking for something like 50 shades (hot and forbidden) but this is the "middle class girl meets emotionally damaged billionaire and turns him around" cliche.
All the male characters sound fake as if they were done by a woman who tries to do male voices by using a deeper. Daniel sounds fake and the best friend sound mentally challenged.
I read a review and got both books at once as suggested (Layers and Inner Core), but I don't know that I can finish Layers, let alone put myself through Inner Core.
D. Maybe a note to audible to revise the algorithms that select the suggested stories. Maybe better "key words." Disappointed.
If the book wasn't a slight variation from books one and two.
The main character is a girl that is not impressed by money or fame that meets a rock star who has emotional issues and she turns him around. Just the same as with Lick and Play. Even the voices are the same. The structure is the same with only the details changing.
The voice is the same, with the same intonation as the previous books. Probably wouldn't be a problem if the books were different from each other.
It had some funny moments.
Start over from scratch.
kind of. Yes.
The performance was fine. The pace was too slow, and the main character, or one of them was completely annoying. I quit in the first few chapters when I realized I was wishing it would be over soon.
I wish I could return it.
