Would you listen to Killings again? Why?

The writing is superb as always.

What did you like best about this story?

Just as the author writes about food, there is a tasty morsel in each story.

What didn’t you like about Robert Fass’s performance?

Mr. Fass's only flaw is that he is not he is not Calvin Trillin.

Any additional comments?

Well worth the listen. Had I not become enamored by the author's storytelling in his own voice, this book would have a 5 star review.

What would have made A Beautiful, Terrible Thing better?

Condense it. Where was the editor?

Has A Beautiful, Terrible Thing turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

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

I certainly felt for Jen and what she was put through, just felt the book was redundant.
I wish her well in the future.

What would have made The Andy Cohen Diaries better?

A bit of himself and real feelings.

Would you ever listen to anything by Andy Cohen again?

Maybe, only because I enjoyed his first book.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Just like on his show when he started the whole, 'HAH, HA" thing, his tone becomes obnoxious and repetitive.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Andy Cohen Diaries?

I would tell him to put in some genuine feelings along with the fluffy diary commentary.

Any additional comments?

Andy Cohen is smart enough to take the "rubber necker" in all of our natures and develop shows that we ,often guiltily, love to watch. I know he is smart, he has maintained friends for years so there must be some depth and he is an entertaining show host. I expected more from him!

I don't mind that I wasted a credit, if only I could get my time back.
Poorly written, poorly read. More about his conquests than the cruises.
A kiss and tell, where you get the feeling they did not care for his kissing, and I could have done without the telling.

Entertaining story but ruined by an annoying narrator who often "over acts".
Korean characters sound Pakistani.

Nothing like an author who can laugh at himself,express such affection for his his wife and kids, and amusement at world at large.
This charming collection will catch you off guard and have you laughing unexpectedly.
