While I enjoyed her certain sense of humor and could relate in many ways, having grown up in Orange County, California, the book seemed to wander without direction through her life. Some of the chapters are amusing, but the book, in general, dragged for me. It wasn't what I expected.
Yes, I would probably giver her another try.
There were some amusing incidents. I think the chapter with the sex partner/trainer was too much, I get the humor behind it, but it was just too much for me.
I think many people won't get the level of Babe's expectations and won't understand the daily excessive indulgences, which granted, aren't that over the top for those that actually live that type of lifestyle, especially in L.A. And that's where the humor lies....
They make we want to read their work.
Since this is a taping of a conversation this question doesn't apply, Give it a listen and you'll enjoy, I'm sure of it.
Any and all of them, he's hilarious! He should host more of the conversations at the Festival of Books. I wish his work was available on audtiobooks.
The conbination of the authors is excellent, they interact off each other well.
I am going to find these authors in other media and keep watching for them on audtiobooks. Bring them back!
Doesn't apply. This is an audio of a panel discussion in front of an audience at the book festival, with interaction between authors, audience and moderator.
Anytime Goldberg is involved listen for a good laugh. I think he's hilarious, as are other panelists.
Real, funny, relateable.
I think it's a unique book, at least right now I can't think of another to compare it to.
Chelsea is a good narrarator, and it just adds to the story when the the author narrarates their own work. She made it seem effortless, I concentrated on the book rather than the performance.
Several times she had me laughing out loud. She cracks me up, but she has a heart also. I'm not sure I knew that about her before the book. She can be so direct sometimes, she comes off as mean. Now I think that she's just being direct in her own way. I get her.
I'll be buying her other books after listening to this one. I've always liked Chelsea, but now I'm a fan of her as an author. The book is enjoyable and will crack you up, it did me.
I think I would, but not as my first choice for this author.
Not really, it wouldn't be classified as a pageturner in my opinion.
Yes, he did a pretty good job.
No, nothing extreme about it really.
Not my favorite, but it was okay. So far I like the Hunt series, a little more suspense would be nice. Not much more I can say for this book, it was just okay.
There were times the story characters didn't seem to react to the situation in a believable way. I like twists and turns but this story was kind of flat for me and didn't build any suspense. I tried it two times and it just was not great.
A different narrator may have been able to improve the book. It seemed a little slow...
The story just never seemed to get off the ground for me and I'm a big fan of Grisham usually.
I think it was the performance.
It was slow.
Well written, the narrator suited the storyline well, enjoyable overall, and would read more by the same author.
No I haven't but enjoyed the performance.
A little of both...
The character development was interesting,the story flowed easily, I got caught up in the story and didn't want to stop listening.
Enjoyed this book and look forward to more of his, I'll be recommending it to my friends. The focus of the book is unique, moves quickly, and as usual, the author delivers twist and turns along the way with an unexpected ending. I also enjoy the legal insight into our justice system and games that are, or could be, played.
Entertaining, funny, with good narration. Highly reccomend this book, and I think it would appeal to a large audience. Love his characters, especially Skink!
