    Amy Gallup is an aging novelist and writing instructor living in Escondido, California, with her dog, Alphonse. Since recent unsettling events, she has made some progress. While she still has writer's block, she doesn't suffer from it. She's still a hermit, but she has allowed some of her class members into her life. She is no longer numb, angry, and sardonic: she is merely numb and bemused, which is as close to happy as she plans to get. Amy is calm. So, when on New Year's morning she shuffles out to her backyard garden to plant a Norfolk pine, she is wholly unprepared for what happens next. Amy falls down.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A plot


    Has Amy Falls Down turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Probably


    What three words best describe Amy McFadden’s performance?

    Good, expressive, clear


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Amy Falls Down?

    Too many to list.


    Any additional comments?

    While this book was humorous in places, I was mostly bored. When I start "dreading" to listen to a book, instead of "can't wait to get back to it," then I know it's not for me. I didn't finish it.
