Wendy Wax - yes!
Amy Rubinate - Never again.
This narrator is stilted and to fast. It was impossible to listen to and a waste of a credit.
Yes, I rarely like books read by their authors but Jenny has a real knack for narration! It is her story she should be the one reading. I know read her blog and can imagine her saying it!
Her father with the squirrel in the cracker box and Beyoncé the giant metal rooster knock knock!
This is my first for this Genre and Jenny Lawson.
Jenny suffers from panic attacks (which I do also) and I have never heard it put so perfectly, she really puts into words what feels indescribable, it felt like someone else finally really understood. It nearly moved me to tears.
I normally listen to "beach reads" at work. After buying this for my wife for a cross country journey and being told I must stop any other audiobooks to listen to this I did. It had me literally laughing out loud at work! I would have to stop, back up and re-listen to parts I missed because of laughing so hard! The other thing is she suffers from panic attacks (which I do also) and I have never heard it put so perfectly, she really puts into words what feels indescribable, it felt like someone else finally really understood. I hope she does a follow up and I am now dedicated to her blog! I love that she is from Texas and lived in Houston, as I do also, that aside it is truly one of the funniest things I have ever heard and I can not stop recommending it to people!
This story is flat and the characters are one dimensional caricature of southern women and hard unloving New Yorkers. , the addition of Magical Realism wasn't the worst example I have read, but it follows in the foot steps a little bit to much towards Sarah Addison Allen. I have been a fan of previous works, The Devil in the Junior League and The Ex-Debutante were both funny and relatable, the women although flawed were strong and the stories were built up around them. It reminds me of a poorly written harlequin novel.
The men all sounded like versions of batman, they were laughable and stagnate. The women sounded very similar to each other which was disappointing.
Portia's sisters, they added very little to no substance to the book.
What I learned: Women are weak and easily manipulated and controlled by men. Men are greedy, uncaring cheaters. Flat characters.
