Terrific book, pleasure to read, closure-enducing

Absolutely loved listening to this book. Honestly, this hearing this from Michelle Obama made every swerve and telling even more poignant. She already had my respect, but it is now galvanized.

Not exactly what I came for, but overall ok

Non-christian here, but decided to read/listen to this book anyway. The reviews for it were wholly good and figured it might be helpful in dealing with my personal feelings of loss and grief. Instead, it's more a discussion about God and the nature of God. Overall, I liked this book, it's not for everyone and I don't believe only followers of Abrahamic religions should read this. If you are coming here to look for healing, you will have to wade through some rather "preachy" moments to get to some great concepts. Personally, the Holy Trinity is not where I find healing, but if you do, then you'll probably love this book.

I enjoyed the read. I was expected Michelle Yoeh as Eleanor and I knew better to expect that. The end was a little anti-climactic, but that is ok, I enjoyed the journey.

I fully understand this is a Dramatic reading

I fully understand this was a dramatic reading, although part of me was disappointed it wasn't a direct reading of the book. That being said, I did enjoy the reading.

The book is very well written and performed. It was also rather educational in the terms of the experience and perspective of the non-American Black in America. Sometimes a "outsider" point of view is needed to look at oneself and see the bullsh*t that gets cultivated here. Another book that everyone in America should read, as it helps bring to light the sheltered singularity of the American lifestyle. The deep vein of pessimism was distressing, but like any growth experience, it takes a bit of pain to understand a new perspective.

Lovely book to read at any age!

Lovely book to read, though I wish I had read it when I was 11-14.

Great read and story...THEN

Loved the book, and Wil Wheaton as the narrator, GREAT IDEA!! Loved that!!!

However, and it may be quibbly of me, but the exaggerated/emphasis he puts on "THEN" at the beginning of the sentence got a little distracting. It could just be Ernest Cline's style but I only noticed in the second half of the book. I'm still giving the book top marks. Then, I'm going to buy the hardback copy for a friend.

Thanks!

Holy crap this book was fun! This world would be a much better place if more people were like Dolly R. Parton.

One of the realest, funniest books I've ever read.

Where does The Last Black Unicorn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book was a 6 hour performance by a talented and amazing person.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Black Unicorn?

Rosco

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

Her delivery was on POINT!!!

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

I laughed I cried...

Any additional comments?

I haven't read the hateful comments yet, I know there are some. Her book is written how she talks and I know some people out there will not give her credit for her genius, but I see it and I LOVE IT.
