    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this book was such a refreshing change and exactly what I'd been looking for. The UK accent of the narrator truly brought out the humor of the book. If I were to read the book myself, I never would have enjoyed the story to the the level that I did.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it was funny and the reviews were actually true. The story was believable, the characters unique in their own way (not too sappy like a romance novel) and just what I look for in a chick-lit book. I laughed out loud with Stevie's version of the "F" word.


    Which character – as performed by Becky Hindley – was your favorite?

    I thought Stevie's son, although not a major character in the book, was enjoyable and unexpected for me. The character of Adam narrated by Becky Hindley was just perfect. I admire the way she could switch from Adam's accent to another characters' seamlessly.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I tried to control myself and only listen on my drive to and from work to make it last, but I couldn't do it.


    Any additional comments?

    I am so frustrated with best seller lists. I have been disappointed so many times in books I've downloaded which is why I am going to make a conscious effort to write more of my own reviews or at least give the books I've listened to an honest score. I think we all should try.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. Good listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ex-Debutante?

    Finding out who her mother was with every week at the motel.


    What does Susan Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brings the characters to life differently than what I would have in my head.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    It depends on who played the starring role.

  • Where'd You Go, Bernadette: A Novel

    Story
    (2145)

    Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.

    Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle - and people in general - has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I honestly don't know. Maybe someone with lower expectations. I spend so much time trying to decide on a book that is worthy of my precious credits. So I read reviews, categorize by star rating, then I've tried best selling and I still find myself choosing the wrong book for "me". I just could not get into this book. I need a story with characters and this read like a diary of emails.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None.
