"What was she thinking?: Notes on a Scandal" was excellent. I also saw the movie, and I think the narrator of the book did a wonderful job...I could practically see Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett as I was listening in my car. I would definitely recommend this audio to others.
I had a long trip of which I was driving alone, so I selected this book and was looking forward to listening to it on the drive. I was SO disappointed. I found it to be extremely narcissistic, self promoting, and worst of all, it wasn't the least bit funny or entertaining. Amy just droned on with "I", "Me", "My" telling uninteresting stories about the most ordinary details of her life, expecting listeners to be hanging on to every word, I guess. I really enjoy Amy's acting and comedy, but her book? Not so much. Sorry Amy!
Not write it.
Performance was fine. Content needed work.
The cheesy actor cameos.
While parts of this book were amusing, I was overall disappointed. I guess I expected more. I didn't finish the audiobook, I was bored.
I really enjoyed this book. However, being a native of central Maine, I think the narrator could have done a little more research and correctly pronounced some of the words and expressions that she obviously tried very hard to master. For instance, "Machias" is not pronounced "MaKYis", it's MaCHYis". Bangor is not "BANG ER", it's "BANG GOR". She did a pretty good job with the "downeast" Maine accents for the most part, I know it couldn't have been easy. All in all, I would recommend this book to others.
