Lots of chapters but each one is as important as the one before. Loved how their lives intertwined without them even knowing.

What made the experience of listening to Love Life the most enjoyable?

Rob Lowe truly let us into his private life. When he talked about his oldest son going to college, I felt like it was my daughter. He is an artist but also very human.

What other book might you compare Love Life to and why?

Nothing that I have read compares to Love Life.

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

I more than enjoyed Rob Lowe's first book. His voice is very easy to listen to. Both had me laughing hysterically and crying like a baby. This is someone we can all relate to.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Love Life, between the sheets and into the night!

Any additional comments?

Again Rob Lowe has welcomed us into his private life. I loved every minute of this book. His voice is so dynamic. I cried when he cried, I laughed when he laughed. Most of all I fell in love again.

Where does Stories I Only Tell My Friends rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best listens I've had the pleasure of listening too.

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

Rob Lowe has a dynamic personality that shines through his voice. I felt like we were sitting at my living room table having coffee and talking about life.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Hearing him describe the birth of his son brought tears to my eyes and a new admiration for Rob Lowe the man not just the actor.

Any additional comments?

Great listen. A must for anyone who grew up in the 80's watching movies like About Last Night and The Outsiders. Like walking down memory lane with some interesting twists and tidbits of information. Rob Lowe does a super job telling you about his life experiences but keeping his friends lives private. .

Who was your favorite character and why?

Elgen, because he loved Bernadette so much he would have done anything for her.

Which scene was your favorite?

The mudslide! ha!!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Two parts actually 1. When Elgen told B to go and 2. When Bernadette opened the velvet bag when B found her.

not worth your time. I couldn't even get though the first part. The story jumps from one to the other and it is really hard to follow. The narrator has a difficult voice (I'm sure she does justice to other stories) but this one just wasn't a good fit for her.

This is a masterpiece in disguise. A great listen and well worth the time. You go through the emotions with the narrator and feel the rollercoaster ride along with the characters.

What an amazing story! I chose this book because of narrator, David LeDoux whom I adore but now it is one of my favorite books of all time. Try it and you really won't regret it.
