    Story
    "Engaging reflections delivered with delight"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Fascinating insights and stories focusing on aspects of a career musician, mother, and all-round engaging personality's personal and very musical life journey. There is great depth to some of what Robin says and the way the stories are arranged focuses on each thread as opposed to being linear which I found fantastic and conversational.


    What about Robin Spielberg’s performance did you like?

    One of the best narrations I have heard in an audiobook. Gentle amusement, joy, and excitement permeate the entire piece, and Robin clearly takes great delight in recounting her story. Fantastic.


    Any additional comments?

    If you have never heard of Robin Spielberg (I had not either) please don't let that put you off listening, it is a great story told with passion and conviction by the author - what more could you want?

    "Loved the energy and storytelling in this book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have already recommended this audiobook to plenty of people! I listened to it on my morning runs and they went by too fast! Some days I even slowed down so I could hear more.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the story about playing at the fancy hotel with the waterfall and instead of fighting the waterfall, Robin learns to embrace it and play to it. This scene was a very powerful one for me and a wonderful lesson I've called upon in my own life since reading it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! But, I made myself take it slowly and savor it.


    Any additional comments?

    Robin is a wonderful reader! She reads with tremendous energy and honest emotion, plus she does great voices and accents! I could see her feelings clearly as I listened. It was a treat.The images she paints are easy to picture and the reader very quickly becomes a part of the story.
