    "Skip this one"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This might be entertaining for someone who is interested in a light, shallow, empty story. It's actually a series of stories, but each one is worse than the last. No depth. Not even interesting.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Emma Straub again?

    There's a reason I don't read fiction unless it's considered a classic. This is the kind of book that reminds me why I don't read fiction. Truth is, by far, much more interesting. I experimented with this one based on its recommendation in the local Book Review. What a disappointment!


    What didn’t you like about Coleen Marlo’s performance?

    This is the worst part of the book. Ms. Marlo's voice with it's superior attitude drove me straight up the wall. Sometimes I can get thru something I wouldn't normally read by listening to it. This one was impossible. I stopped it after the 2nd story.


    What character would you cut from Other People We Married?

    The narrator.
