Misadventures in the (213) | [Dennis Hensley]

Misadventures in the (213)

What Tales of the City did for San Francisco, Misadventures in the (213) does for Los Angeles in this tale of a struggling screenwriter, his circle of celebrity-seeking friends, and their madcap attempts to make it in "The Biz." Misadventures? What else would you call making off with fish from Tina Louis's koi pond, calling Leeza Gibbons mid-flight to ask who does her headshots, or auctioning off Andrew Shue's chicken-wing and Heather Locklear's lip print for charity?

    "Really bad audio quality for outdated fluff story"

    I originally got this book because I love Kathy Griffin and had just heard "Official book Club Selection." I wanted to hear as much as I could. When I started to listen to it on a plane the audio quality was so bad I could barely keep listening. I was on a long plane ride so I braved it. The story itself was so-so, taking place in the 90's with so many pop culture references to the time it almost felt like a period piece. Even the reference to the "213" is outdated today. It wasn't the best use of my time, but Kathy definitely delivered- in the same way she delivered on Suddenly Susan. Not the best acting, but always fun. She has gotten much better over time. Not sure if the audio can be fixed- but if it can and you're from LA and like fluff- you might enjoy listening to this one.

    "Horrible - want refund"

    No Kathy Griffin that I could hear, just Karen Griffin. Terrible sound quality, story very hard to follow. Had to give it one star or couldn't post this review.

    "Poor audio quality"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book is ruined by poor audio quality and poor production values.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Dennis Hensley and Kathy Griffin ?

    Yes I would
