This book has repeated and blank sections. The writing is okay, the narration is okay - the recording is simply awful.
I loved The Devil Wears Prada and really hoped this would be as good. It wasn't. The narrator was so-so, but the writing was just awful. The endless descriptions of the baby's skin, hair, smell, etc. were nauseating.
The narrator emoted a bit too much, especially when describing Andi's thoughts about her husband or baby. It was annoying.
This book was a major disappointment.
I love this series of books - they are a great listen. The narration is just wonderul.
The audio is awful. There are huge blank sections - specifically over a key plot point.
There were so many errors in this download - not the author's fault, but just a warning to those who are considering purchasing.
The book is okay, but too abstract for me. I actually like this narrator and have enjoyed her reading some other "Barbara Holloway" novels, but I found this book to be tedious and annoying with the vague details and ridiculous plot twists.
The author seems to have a bizarre obsession with what everyone is drinking - it just comes up too often.
There are better Kate Wilhelm books.
The narration in this book is just awful. "Readers" are used to portray real life actors, comedians, musicians, etc. and it's just horrible. The person who reads the Billy Crystal excerpts is particularly annoying. The effort put into immitating people is so distracting and off-putting, that at some point, I almost just threw in the towel and gave up the book.
I was disappointed that Chelsea didn't read this book, but the reader did a good job. It's a tacky read, but very fun.
The content of this book is very suspect because so much of it is dialog that no one could have been privy to except for Bob Hanssen and I just have my doubts that he related so many "mirror conversations" to anyone. Also, the reader is horrible. He frequently lowers to a whisper when doing the "mirror conversations" so that the volume has to be turned way up, then he's yelling the next minute. This is just not a good book at all.
