    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.

    Would you listen to Heartburn again? Why?

    Yes. It's not a story with great twists and turns. Easily enjoyable.


    What other book might you compare Heartburn to and why?

    Many chick lit novels.


    What about Meryl Streep’s performance did you like?

    Her voice and emphasis are amazing.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moment she realizes she has the means to leave. The lightness and freedom she must've felt was palatable.

  • Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend

    Budo is lucky as imaginary friends go. He's been alive for more than five years, which is positively ancient in the world of imaginary friends. But Budo feels his age, and thinks constantly of the day when eight-year-old Max Delaney will stop believing in him. When that happens, Budo will disappear. Max is different from other children. Some people say that he has Asperger’s Syndrome, but most just say he’s "on the spectrum". None of this matters to Budo, who loves Max and is charged with protecting him from the class bully, from awkward situations in the cafeteria, and even in the bathroom stalls. But he can’t protect Max from everyone.

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

    Not only is the the story of a good one, but telling it from the perspective of an imaginary friend is fresh and insightful into the world of autism spectrum. Even without that interest I can see many people enjoying the story of Boodo and Max.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Oswald. He was initially misunderstood, but his willingness to sacrifice himself for Max and his belief that he would live on because of that made me feel affectionate toward him.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Max escapes and is finally able to make decisions for himself.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Actually I enjoyed taking breaks to digest some what I'd heard during each listening.

    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
