I will never purchase anything again that has been narrated by CJ Critt. It sounds like she is sucking on oxygen before every sentence. I couldn't even make it through 1 chapter of the book it was so annoying. And I love Patricia Cornwell.
Please listen to the narration. The women needs a sharp intake of air before every sentence. It is torture to listen to her.
I wish I could have made it through- a big fan of Cornwell.
Would love to get my money back for this download.
I would read another book written by Chef Samuelsson but I won't listen to him reading it. No emotion and the cadence of how the sentences are delivered don't make any sense. Samuelsson wrote this book- yet it seemed as if he had never looked at the words before. You never know when he has finished a sentence and this makes it very hard to enjoy the fascinating story he has to tell. I am sorry that I purchased this book on Audible. I think that this would have been better as a read than a listen.
Absolutely not- it was dreadful.
Cut the actor and get someone else to deliver the story to the listener
The story itself is great. As a foodie, it was very interesting to get in the kitchen of some of the most renowned restaurants and understand how it all works- the hierarchy, the development of a menu, the delivery of food to the customer. I am just sorry that the experience was marred by a poor delivery. I liken this experience to going to a great restaurant and having a fabulous meal- only to be spoiled by a lousy waiter.
Absolutely- anyone who is a fan of Sissy Spacek and her movies will enjoy this book- which takes the listener from Sissy's childhood through her successes in Hollywood and most importantly her biggest achievements- finding a great partner and raising 2 talented children.
I loved Sissy as a young adult making her way in NYC!
I really enjoyed the chapters of her knocking on doors and trying to get an audition.
