I didn't know what to expect when I started. It is comical, insightful, entertaining, and present realistic issues in a manner that doesn't bludgeon the reader. Aspiring writers may find some interesting tidbits in this as well. Other than the narrator sounding a little young to voice a 60 year old (hardly a complaint), I really enjoyed Amy McFadden's narration.
This is a great character development piece. The story builds well, and your investment in the different characters grows accordingly. Quite well done. I look forward to other non-Potter stories from Rowling.
I always appreciate when an author will narrate his/her own work, and Bill Bryson's narrations are especially good. I'm a big fan of his books, but this is my absolute favorite of the books he narrates. I was quite literally crying I was laughing so hard at many points in this book. I don't usually re-listen too books, but I know I will have to listen to this one again.
