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.
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.
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!
