Maybe You Should Talk to Someone audiobook cover art

Will return it - so not what I expected

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

I find it totally boring and the narrator is way too fast and has a weird pitch.

Tolles Hörbuch und eine wundervolle homage an Deutschland. Da möchte ich fast schon wieder umziehen.

If you could sum up Alexander von Humboldt und die Erfindung der Natur in three words, what would they be?

Aktuell, Wichtig, Must-Read!

What other book might you compare Alexander von Humboldt und die Erfindung der Natur to and why?

Die Bücher muss ich jetzt erst mal suchen, die sich mit diesem hier vergleichen lassen.

Which scene was your favorite?

Jeder Moment wo Humboldt das Ganzheitliche versteht und veranschaulicht und Zusammenhänge sieht vor denen noch heute die Menschen gern die Augen verschließen.

Would you listen to The Invention of Nature again? Why?

Yes, it is an amazing book, but I will get the German version as I do not like this narrator. Every sentence sounds like a flashy news headline.... Not my thing.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The pace, yes. The story itself, no.

What did you love best about The Cafe by the Sea?

The story is cute and easy to listen to while on a relaxing road trip or walking along a sandy beach (as I did today) and puts you in the mood to travel to Scotland. But what really stands out for me is the narrator. I do not want to put the book away as I like her voice so much.

Any additional comments?

Get more books narrated by Sarah Barron.

Where does Born a Crime rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Most incredible book I have listened to in 2017, his story teaches you a lot about human behavior, how to survive and move on. His gift of observation and connecting the dots shows up in some very interesting comparison, we have to think about.

What does Trevor Noah bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His voice and emotion really comes through when he reads the book.

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

Absolutely, and I think I nearly did.

Any additional comments?

Listen, listen, listen!

What made the experience of listening to Ein Schnupfen hätte auch gereicht the most enjoyable?

Ich mag Gaby Köster, ihre Stimme und ihre Direktheit. Macht Mut, das das Leben auch nach einer Tragödie weiter geht und das man auf einge, gute Freunde zählen kann.

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

Ja.

Es ist ein Genuss Hape Kerkeling zuzuhören. Obwohl sein Lebensweg mit schweren Brocken (Steine sind zu klein) geplastert ist, zeigt er wie er mit viel Liebe, Ehrgeiz, Kompromisslosigkeit und Güte dieses Leben liebt. Ich bin froh davon lernen zu können.

I will read the book myself as I can't stand the nasal, patronizing intonation of the narrator. Imo she would have done good to listen to Brene Brown's speeches first to capture her warmth, enthusiasm, quirky humor and persona. I so wish Brene would read her books herself.

Don't get me wrong, the narrator reads well, and for any other book, I would like her, but to emulate Brene, nope, sorry, does not do it for me.
