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

    If you were expecting to laugh, you won't get to much. I only could listen to 1/4 of this book . Thank goodness for Audio books return policy. I DID love "I Remember Nothing" and " I Feel Bad About My Neck".


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Ephron again?

    Yes!


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Crazy Salad and Scribble, Scribble?

    Not sure.


    Any additional comments?

    I DID love "I Remember Nothing" and " I Feel Bad About My Neck".

    "too bad"

    Sadly, this book bored me stiff--as outdated gossips usually do.
    (I recommend buying Ephron's other books/audiobooks)--Reader does a good job of imitating Ephron's voice, tone and style, but I am not sure that was necessary at all.

    "Don't waste your credit"

    I LOVE Nora Ephron but if you're expecting to hear one of her quirky stories to entertain you and make you laugh then you'll need to look elsewhere. This was terribly boring. Sorry!

    Story
    "Wanted to love this...but..."

    If you are of the same generation as Nora, you will relate to the stories better than I. I wanted to love this book. I was hoping for some wisdom on aging in that Nora Ephron wit of her screen plays. The stories are like a comentary on the events of the times in which she was living through, many read out like a diary entry. The narnators voice is a good fit for the author, so it is like you are hearing the author read her stories. This book is long if you don't or can't relate to the stories. For example the storie about returning to Wellesley... was a bit of a 'you had to be there'. Unfortunately I could not finish this book as I lost interest.

    Story
    "Fascinating"
    Would you listen to Crazy Salad and Scribble, Scribble again? Why?

    Yes, in a couple of years. It was a fascinating insight into life at the time of writing the book. A great variety of topics covered, some of which I spent time researching after hearing about them for the first time.

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

    This is a great selection of pieces that Nora wrote-great observation about politics and the media


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Crazy Salad and Scribble, Scribble?

    The story of the woman who was Nixon's secretary


    What does Kathe Mazur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    She read so well that I felt I was listening to Nora herself


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

    No not necessarily-it was great to be able to dip into
