Listening to Jim tell his stories is just priceless
I really enjoyed hearing from a dad's perspective. I have read many books from mom's but hearing a dad talk about his experience was entertaining and eye opening. I bet my husband could relate to a lot of Jim's stories, minus 3 children.
I have listened to and seen Jim Gaffigan in concert, this was right in line with his great comedic perfomances.
I laughed out loud many times.
If you are a parent or may become a parent someday buy this book!
I really loved all the books in this series
This series is the first one I have listened to with Tavia Gilbert and her performance is unbelievably good. Her voice puts me so far into the story that my heart races with the fight scenes and my eyes fill with tears during the sad and happy scenes. Between the writing and the performance it may be the best series I have listed to.
I really love series, its nice to get to know your characters and see the story evolve from book to book.
She does not do a good job as Abby and her voice inflection for the other characters leaves a lot to be desired. Every time Brice Harrison had a line i cringed because she made him sound like a weasel, not the Assistant Special Agent in Charge. I feel bad saying it but she is not the best choice for this series, a different book maybe, but if i didn't have my kindle book to help me break from the performance I may have given up on this series 10 books ago.
The series is a good one just get past the narration and you can love Abby, Candace, Dutch, Brice, Milo and the rest of the "crew"
I would have to recommend the print version, the performance really makes it difficult to listen to. Abby sounds much older than she should. Eileen Stevens, Amanda Ronconi, Amy Rubinate, anyone please give Abby new life.
I really wish a different narrator could be found continuing the series in audio is difficult. I am sure Ms. Michaels could be fine in another book, but she is really not at all right for this one.
I really like the character
I just don't feel like she sounds like Abby Cooper, no disrespect but I was under the impression that Abby Cooper is in her early 30's and Elizabeth Michaels doesn't sound like a woman in her early 30's from Michigan. She does mispronunce words and places like street names in most books in this series.
Love the story, but the narrator just isn't right for the character. I am sure she could do other characters in other books better, she just isn't Abby.
As a busy mom being able to have the audio version of this book was great. I was able to listen on my commute to work, while doing housework and when getting ready to go to bed. Print versions are good, but being "read to" while doing mundane chores is way better!
It is similar to Mary Higgins Clark's other books, but I own all of them, so I guess she is doing something right.
Kate's experiences and flashes of memory while in a coma was interesting.
I really enjoyed the audio version of this book. Steve made his points and had some really good ones. Having Steve's voice made a bigger impact then I think I would have had if I had read the print version of this book.
The inflections made this a great listen. You really know how Steve wants you to take what he wrote.
I love the way Darynda writes, the series is so entertaining. Charley is so easy to cheer for.
I did like having Molly Ringwald narrate the story. It was great to hear it exactly as she meant it to be heard.
Many of the stories were very relatable to my life.
Her tone and inflection truly meant that you heard the story from her perspective.
Yes, I read this book many years ago and this version was different than the Anne Frank of my youth. I thought the story was very moving and listening to Anne's story as an adult and mother made me see it a bit differently. Even though we know the end to the story, listening to Anne just talk about being a teenager was very relatable. I remember feeling some of the same things that Anne describes and that in turn made me think about my own teenage daughter and some of the things she may be thinking and feeling. The times have changed, but so much of it is still relevent.
She had great inflection and in my mind was Anne
