  • Heartburn

    Is it possible to write a sidesplitting novel about the breakup of the perfect marriage? If the writer is Nora Ephron, the answer is a resounding yes. For in this inspired confection of adultery, revenge, group therapy, and pot roast, the creator of Sleepless in Seattle reminds us that comedy depends on anguish as surely as a proper gravy depends on flour and butter.

    Would you try another book from Nora Ephron and/or Meryl Streep?

    Probably Not. Have to say since Meryl Streep is such a great actress, I was expecting her to be a better narrator..


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Does not bring the characters to life.


    What character would you cut from Heartburn?

    All of them!!


    Any additional comments?

    This book was so boring...But since I already purchased it I have been trying to listen to the whole book , I have about one hour left..but it is excruciating....

    Daunted by the singular tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend this book to a friend. It is a love story, and psychologically challenging to my mind trying to understand the deeper meaning. Personally, I could do without all the explicit sex scenes, meaning sometimes less is more, but I could see how other would enjoy it. I enjoy the story of the relationship more. I also enjoy both Grey and Steeles characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did have an extreme reaction to the first book, because I have been in a past relationship with a person who was extremely controlling and jealous, and although it is enticing at first when you are falling in love, it is not pretty in the long run. Just saying!

    The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying is a contemporary spiritual masterpiece and one of the world's most profound sources of sacred inspiration. Sogyal Rinpoche interprets Tibetan Buddhism for Western students, offering new ways to look at life and death. He teaches us to transcend our fear and denial of death, enabling us to discover parts of ourselves that will survive eternally.
