    He's Just Not That Into You, based on the popular episode of Sex and the City, educates otherwise smart women on how to tell when a guy just doesn't like them enough, so they can stop wasting time making excuses for a dead-end relationship.

    I love love loved this audio book! It made me laugh and cry all at once. I listened to it with my 19 year old son, and all he could say was... that's exactly right mom... that's the way it is. It truly was liberating to realize how many gymnastics some of us women go through in order to justify a realtionship that just doesn't fit. It's like the Emperor's New Clothes... we ooooh and ahhhh, make excuses and say how great they are underneath all that fear of intimacy and lack of regard, when the truth is - the guy is "buck naked" and "just NOT that into us"!!!

    Alexandra Fuller tells the idiosyncratic story of her life growing up white in rural Rhodesia as it was becoming Zimbabwe. The daughter of hardworking, yet strikingly unconventional English-bred immigrants, Alexandra arrives in Africa at the tender age of two. She moves through life with a hardy resilience, even as a bloody war approaches. Narrator Lisette Lecat reads this remarkable memoir of a family clinging to a harsh landscape and the dying tenets of colonialism.

    Overall

    I couldn't put this book down, and now finding it on tape is a delight. The narration is engaging and entertaining. The author writes in an almost muscical style, it's like listening to narrative poetry in parts. The richness of the language and detail is truly luscious. I am usually struck by how "thin" many modern novels read, like eating the most basic and bland meal, with no spice or flavor. This novel is like a feast, rich and robust, filled with a symphony of tastes, smells, sights, and sounds.
