    "AAAIIIEEE!!!! Save your credits!"
    Would you try another book from Harriet Lerner and/or Natalie Ross?

    No. Natalie's voice makes me want to gouge my eyes out. Maybe Harriet gets deeper, but I just couldn't stand that voice and the oversimplified


    Has Marriage Rules turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No - in this case one bad apple can't spoil a whole barrel.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Natalie Ross’s performances?

    If I need motivation to end my life.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Desire to get my credits back.


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to save others.

    "Disappointed"
    Would you try another book from Harriet Lerner and/or Natalie Ross?

    I wish the author would not have so many religious references. For those of us who are not practicing Christians, it is distracting and annoying.

    Story
    "an excellent read!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm a mental health professional - I've already bought 4 copies and lent them to clients and recommended to almost every client that they get it and listen to it or read it!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Simple, easy to read - and is consciousness raising!
