The reader, Janet Metzger, got just the right tone for the unnamed first person narrator, who has a witty, devil may care attitude even in the face of tragedy.
The sassy, witty tone that permeates the narration. I don't think I would have gotten it in quite the same way if I had read the book instead of listening. She has a flip way of expressing herself like when her friend is talking about her grandparents' graves and the narrator says, "I thought we were here to have fun."
When the narrator gives advice to Charlie, her best friend's son. Also, when her friend says if she won't sleep with her boyfriend someone else will and we suspect that she knows that the narrator has done so.
Based on a true story, this was enjoyable and informative. Robin Miles is one of my favorite narrators.
Probably not. I don't usually listen more than once.
Surprising growth of the main character.
No, I haven't read the print version, so I can't say.
The elderly woman who tracked storms. It is refreshing to have an old woman who wasn't a stereotype. She had intense interests and important insights.
I could have. As it was, I listened to it very quickly.
