    "Awful!"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a waste of my time and credit. It was an awful story that in my opinion centered mostly around aunt Doodie. The romance was severely lacking! The narration of Aunt Doodie was utterly annoying making an already crappy story even crappier! Don't waste your credit on this one!

    Story
    "4 ½ stars. Very enjoyable first person narrative."

    Don’t do the audiobook - terrible narrator. Read the paperback or ebook.

    Story Brief:
    Sadie and her children spend the summer with Aunt Dody and cousins. Sadie is recently divorced. She doesn’t want a new relationship, but she is attracted to Dody’s gorgeous neighbor Desmond.

    Opinion:
    I really enjoyed this. I smiled a lot. I liked being in Sadie’s head. I loved her interaction with her cousin Fontaine, a gay interior decorator. I enjoyed the developing relationship with Desmond. This was not a powerful wow story. It’s a pleasant, everyday people around you kind of story. There were several conflicts caused by Sadie making inaccurate assumptions and jumping to wrong conclusions. Those were nicely done. But one of them bothered me - toward the end Sadie was mad at Des for something that she should not have been mad about.

    Sadie has some low self image problems and does some silly things. I was fine with that, but some readers might prefer a stronger heroine. This book has a chick lit feel, but it does have a romantic happy ending. Although I wish there were more romance and declaration of love at the end.

    The narrator Lori Reyes was a huge problem. She had a terrible, high-pitched screechy voice for Dody and the children. It was like fingernails on a chalkboard. I cringed every time she used that voice. She would be a good narrator if she NEVER raised her voice to a higher pitch. Her natural voice and low voice for men was good.

    Genre: contemporary romance, divorce

    "Awful Narrator"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I just purchased the book today and I have already had to toss it out. The narrator is the worst. She is so annoying that I can not listen to the book. It is a shame because the story line sounded good.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Awful. Annoying. Can not listen to book.

    "Hilarious!!!!"
    Where does Crazy Little Thing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 10 for sure.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Crazy Little Thing?

    Pretty much anytime Aunt Dody opened her mouth! Loved Aunt Dody!!!!


    Did Lori Reyes do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Pretty much. A few times the transitions between Desmond and other characters were a little muddled, but for the most part you could definitely differentiate between the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I actually laughed out loud... for most of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Would love to read/ hear more about Aunt Dody's future escapades. What a character!

    "Light, Enjoyable Story. TERRIBLE NARRATOR"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I actually couldn't finish listening to this audiobook. I had to finish the second half on my Kindle. Just couldn't stomach the narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ehhh.... They were all just... there. No one character really stuck out as a favorite.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Lori Reyes’s performances?

    NOOOOOOO


    Any additional comments?

    The story itself was fine. It was light and enjoyable. It's a shame that the audiobook ruined the experience for me. By the time I abandoned it and started reading my ebook, the story was unable to rise into "really good" territory for me.

    "Heartwarming amongst all the craziness"

    I had so many laugh out loud moments in this book, it was so intelligently written, I raced through it. I bought this book and a week later Amazon dropped the price:( which I was not impressed by but the book is so good that it was worth it.

    Okay back to the review, there are so many crazy, insane moments that this book felt real and somehow within the craziness you identify with the characters. You become vested in the characters and you feel they are a family member you know. This book is about second chances about love and life. It also have some serious moments but this is a great book.

    2nd, being that it's my second book!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It has a happy ending and it's very funny!


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, the only accent that didn't work for me was the Scottish one, Dess! The aunt and Fontaine, excellent,

    "Laughed So Much"

    I really enjoyed this audiobook the narration was good apart from when she tries to do a Scottish accent of Des but turns out to be Irish, still a good listen. Loved Aunt Dody and gay Cousin Fontaine just cracked me up loved the voices. This was such a great book and I loved Sadie with all her inner thoughts and self criticism. This is a great feel good story and will have you laughing out loud; leaves one feeling good. Worth the credit if your a born romantic.

    "Narrator was awful!"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Something about the narrator's voice is really awful! Save your money. It's to bad because this book has gotten great reviews on amazon. Wish I could get my money back!

    "Poor"

    The story line is poor and so boringly predictable. The gays are predictably always nice and like all the other characters exaggerated and unatractive making it impossible to believe in any of them. To make it worse the accents are annoying. Where did the Scottish accent come from. If the novel had been any good this would have ruined it.
