liked most -- the refreshing perspective of one that has had a rough life, but doesn't wallow in "poor me";it was worth price.
liked least -- almost fell over dead when the recording started, with the "audible kids"
screeching out - startling everyone in the room! didn't realize it was intended for kids.
frankly, i don't remember the ending - now that's sad.
it was ok, take it or leave it.
yep, and the price was good too.
the intro and closing - "we hope you've enjoyed, ....."
the first time he told it like it was -- uttering the unspeakable, but much thought phrase....
it went on too long -- it was tiresome, and almost dumb in the end. would've carried a heavier punch by losing a few stanzas. clever though!
got to be a bit predictable, and far fetched after awhile, so i would get to the point sooner, or else add some dimension to the characters
nah - too far out of the realm of the real world we live in
it was ok
it doesn't surprise me that this would be a hollywood consideration - but i wouldn't go farther than the lifetime movie network. the fact that this question is posed, actually reinforces for me, the negative reaction i had to the story - it cheapens the delight that was dangled here and there in the book, when it stuck to clever, and away from cutesy. this seems the type of movie for a washed up sitcom type to relaunch their career -- someone left behind in the 70's or 80's - or one of those real housewives of beverly hills. ugh.
i couldn't tell you - never read the print version
the memory of seeing "wilde" - the movie about oscar wilde's life, and how remarkably similar this book is to the goings on in the author's life.
no - after awhile, it does get a bit old though - all the witty observations, at first playful and fun, get a bit tedious and later too much.
the narration really is annoying
i can't get into it - it's so schmaltzy and predictable - contrived.
oh heck no
before i keeled over from sheer boredom, i was able to press the stop button
ack - no wonder it went hollywood. ack ack ack hated it
What a great combo - a twisted, sick story that kept me laughing - coupled with the best narrator ever for this unusual road/head trip~ranking it one of the best I've heard.
I'd compare it with Geek Love, Bad Ass, and vintage Stephen King - a darkness that is not stops just short of campy but is not cheap, as it's threaded with the most amazing observation/narrative on human instinct, natural behavior.
man, he delivered this like no other could -- the perfect "voice" for this story - the intelligent observer, with a touch of Louis Black meets George Carlin.
this is the song that never ends....it goes on and on my friends (oh, wait, i think lambchop has got that covered)
The listener is treated to alot of hit and run "how to" blurbs, but after the first few, it was a real snooze. One wonders how some of them manage to make a living as public speakers, when their big "sales pitch" is such a bore. Redundant, and very disappointing.
What a gifted storyteller - the dual readers gave depth to the tale - this is definitely a novel worth listening to.
What a great character! I've heard the name over the years, but never had a frame of reference for it. It's amazing to imagine the challenges of the times, societal rules, etc. Even by today's standards, "Moll" would be an extraordinary woman.
I'm so glad I took others advice and read this book before Glass Castle. It gave an important frame of reference that was helpful - and lent a believability factor to that book. This writer is gifted at sharing personal stories that make you want to know more.
