    Story
    "Lack of Communication makes Resolution Difficult"
    Would you listen to Searching for Paradise in Parker, PA again? Why?

    I was glad that Ms Radish did not make this all cute, and soft. It was frustrating, sad, and happy just like life. I love her books and each for a different reason. This is not like all the others, her characters are stuggling to find their way through life and questioning their furtures.


    Have you listened to any of Barbara McCulloh’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first Barbara McCulloh listen


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

    I listened to this while driving from Montana to Wyoming. I wanted to yell at both the wife and the husband for not being better communicators. They reminded me of many people I have met or known over the years.

    "Pathetic.... almost painful"

    I hae truly enjoyed Kris Radish's books over the years. Stories of strong women becoming empowered and finding their paths. But this one was just a waste of time. It was almost painful to read, and I found myself drifing off and away from the story.
    Addy Lipton, the somewhat protagonist, is shakled to her husband Lucky, for whom the many years of marriage have anesthesized him into a lackluster existance governed by his overflowing garage, the Kingdom of Krap.
    There is, of course, the straw that breaks Lucky's back and the couple retreat to their own worlds. The ending is very unsatisfactory, and if I had been Addy, I would have kicked Lucky to the curb long before this story ended. Radish needs to stick to stories of women.... let the guys fnd their own entertainment.
    A total waste of time.
