Characters seem overly trite and shallow due to the flat affect of the narrator. I'd like to hear the abridged version read by Cynthia Nixon because I have been a fan of Giffin's "Something Borrowed" and "Something Blue" as well as the audio version of "Heart of the Matter" read by Cynthia Nixon. Normally I prefer Unabridged audio books to abridged, but Cynthia Nixon is a talented actor and I bet it makes a big difference.
I Loved Rachel Dratch on SNL, especially Debbie Downer, So listening to her narrate her own memoir was very entertaining. During parts where Ms. Dratch describes the availablity of roles offered as her career falters I started to feel uncomfortable as her talent is unquestionable but there were some 'downer' years for her to describe. I hated to feel sorry for her but even then the details are very interesting and fun to listen too. And you don't need to feel bad for long, the story really picked up for me in the middle to end as she moves to dating, falling in like, living through and welcoming an unexpected pregnancy and welcoming her baby to the world. A great read or listen.
There is nothing like hearing an author read their own story, especially when they are a talented comiedian.
Well written mystery. The plot moved at a good speed and switched between the present and past with ease. I couldn't stop listening and couldn't wait to figure it all out.
Great Narration. Linda Emonds was able to read both male and female voices without sounding phony or silly. Her voice really added to the story
