    "Not for me."
    What disappointed you about Wallflower at the Orgy?

    I had higher expectations for this book and so I am disappointed. I don't find her writing has anything with wit or punch. I also found the material to be dated.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Ephron’s story?

    Nora Ephron not a favorite of mine as I now know from trying this audiobook. I gave up about half way through.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narration was fine. I found the content lacking.


    Any additional comments?

    I won't be bothering with Nora Ephron again.

    Would you try another book from Nora Ephron and/or Kathe Mazur?

    Yes, I loved Nora Ephron's other books.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Ephron’s story?

    The stories were all from the 60's and 70's and I found them hard to follow. They were not interesting either. I kept thinking, what is this about?


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I guess so.


    What character would you cut from Wallflower at the Orgy?

    They are stories and overall not very interesting ones.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, maybe 1 or 2 stories were of interest, the others were boring and very unfamiliar, not sure who they are for.
