    "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!

    "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!

    "Easy read, terrible narration"
    Would you try another book from Tracy Brogan and/or Lori Reyes?

    I might read another book by Brogan but never another book narrated by Reyes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I felt as though she was narrating a children's book. The inflections were over the top and she was a very slow narrator. It was seriously like going to pre-school story time at the public library.


    Do you think Crazy Little Thing needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I might read another book by the author but I'll skip the audio book.


    Any additional comments?

    Lori Reyes should narrate children's books. And nothing else. Ever.

    "The story is okay, but the narration is terrible"

    The story itself is okay..not literary genius but okay... however I had to transition over to the written version because the narration on the audio version was so bad. The narrator was over the top dramatic and the voice of the aunt was screechy and cartoonish. If the same narrator performs the next in this series I will skip the audio version.

    "Well Written, but Poorly Narrated"

    I own both the kindle and the audible versions. I enjoyed reading the novel, but not listening to it. The narrator's character voice for Doty was too shrill--I found myself turning the volume way down whenever there were scenes with that character. I also thought Fontaine's character voice sounded so flamboyant and dramatic it was like a caricature of a gay man's voice instead of sounding authentic to the character.

    But the novel was enjoyable to read. I especially liked the minor characters--even the protagonist's children were funny. I loved the setting.

    "Crazy Little Thing"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who has previous experience with this narrator. Or anyone who reads it. The narration completely turned me off to this book.


    Has Crazy Little Thing turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but I will be more attentive to the narrator for all future titles.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It made the listen painful and caused me to delete from my iPod.


    What character would you cut from Crazy Little Thing?

    None, but as I didn't finish the book I can not state with certainty.

    "First time I've ever returned a book."

    I have been a trucker for almost 7 years, and I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks. This is the first one I have ever taken the time to review, and this is the first one I have ever returned. This is the WORST narrator! I cannot imagine what made this woman use the voice she decided to use for the Aunt Dody character. It was a nose bleeding, blood pressure raising, assault on my ears. At one point, after a quiet calm conversation between the H and h, Dody's voice came screeching (it is LITERALLY a screech) over the speakers and I dang near ran off the road it startled me so badly. I will absolutely never listen to another book this woman narrates, because frankly, I think she has bad judgement and I like myself too much to practice self torture. Seriously, its horrific. I gave the story a three even though I didn't finish because I couldn't burden the author with the narrators cross.

    "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.
