    Story
    "An ok way to kill some time"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would hire a woman who can do a consistent and realistic Indian accent, a man with the same and an African American man to do the different parts. The "fake but clear" accents here - do nothing for me. The performance was not 5 stars for me at all.


    Would you recommend One Amazing Thing to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not. I can only think of one who might try this book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Realistic, consistent accents would have helped - REALISTIC, CONSISTANT. Not just a smidge with nothing but the hope to help non native speakers.better understand.


    Could you see One Amazing Thing being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, I can see this being made into a made for TV movie -like Lifetime. I dont know who I would cast - perhaps a whole crew of newcomers.


    Any additional comments?

    Some of the sentences in this book, give me hope that I can write my own. I really love Divakaruni's other work. This one, not too much. Of all of the stories shared none were particularly fresh orginal or unpredictable. I will read divakaruni agan though.
