I listened to this as an audiobook but found myself stopping doing other things often just to focus on the capers and situations being described.
It was literally laugh out loud funny.
The only thing I may have done differently would have been to use a female narrator. The gentleman did a wonderful job, but it is a tale told through a young girls eyes.
The setting is Ohio, and I grew up in Wisconsin. I could relate to SO MUCH in this memoir. From playing outside until after dark, to family road trips where Dad did not want to stop for bathroom breaks, to talk about the pets, and, oh yes, the giant pink foam curlers.
This is a book I am glad to have in audio format as I will enjoy it again and again while driving.
She has the wit and storytelling abilities of Bill Cosby
I was literally laughing out loud. The dogs was looking at me funny.
I could relate to so much in her storyline. And it was funnier the way she tells it.
I will be listening to this many times.
It is a great book to have for road trips.
I have many friends who appreciate thrillers, adventure and mysteries as well as general crime.
Yes, He is a talented writer
I have not
I did enjoy the narrator and the idea of the story.
As it is only a brief chapter, I can not rank it
Although this is a short novella, I really enjoyed the story.
It was complete and satisfying.
I could visualize Dave walking in and catching Lara as she tumbled down the stairs
Her voice has a breathy quality perfect for a softer romantic story.
Her voice has a dreamy quality.
Yes! I will also listen to it again.
The only part I was a bit hesitant about were Dave's romantic ideas as he was about to confront his father. Maybe written a bit too girly but it really was alright for the story.
I will be listening to this again and taking notes.
There are wonderful ideas and references given.
Relistening is a great refresher to keep the ideas active in my life.
I appreciated the explanation of goals working more thoroughly if set on a subconscious level.
I enjoyed the authors giving specific steps to undertake to move forward towards those goals.
How to state your desires and goals in proper language and how to act on those goals.
Of course you get the wonderful voices, but also the excitemenr and emotion of each speaker.
You get a feel for the gentlemen themselves and for what they and their ideas can do for you, how you may connect.
I was energized, excited.
Recently I participated in a couple of online seminars about using your life to better potentail and getting healthier, finding one's purpose. The information in this audiobook is equally as valuable.
With his voice, J.D. could be a wonderful narrator himself.
I learned more about the author himself and some of his opinions on what makes writing successsful. I liked how he added that the narrator is almost a coauthor, when they add personality and life to the book.
I have read his books, but this is the first time I have listened to the author.
I enjoyed this very much.
I appreciated your mentioning that no matter how interesting, if facts do not move along the story or add to character development, they don't have a place in the book.
Thoroughly Enjoyed Thanks!

I am looking forward to more books by this author, Edith Nesbitt.I will also look for other narrations by Karen krause
While this is much shorter than most audiobooks I have lisitened to. it kept my attention fully from start to finish. This narrator is at the top of my favorite's list.
Some of the vocabulary useage and ghostly references reminded me of Dicken's A Christmas Carol
Sanderson had the most distinctive voice.
Wish did his part admirably well.
Clayton ~ He had everyone hanging on his tale
The narrator's voice was wonderful.
It relaxed me and made me open to being drawn into the story, to suspend my disbelief.
I liked the way the narrator differentiated characters with her voice.Especially those lines sounding surprised.It was nice to hear more from characters we met in the first book in this series.
When Jessie as Tessy tries to convince Goldilocks that as a police officer she must take action.Also Jessie's relationship with her mother.
Playing with PoisonEqually enjoyable
Going Dark Undercover
This can be listened to as a stand alone, but listeners will also enjoy the first book in ths series. It is a light, humorous read about good friends who watch out for each other.
