For Daly English, life is a series of one disappointment after another. Rather than dealing with the fall-out, she locks herself in her studio and works tirelessly toward completing her art school portfolio. Unfortunately, fate isn't done with Daly quite yet.

Where does A Colorful Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the first audiobook that I have listened to, ever!. I enjoyed listening to the narration; I do think I personally may have enjoyed reading the book rather than listening to it. This was a new experience for me. I wish I had a print version so that I could follow along with the narration. Maybe this is something that could be added, like "closed captioning".

Who was your favorite character and why?

Each of the characters had their own story, I guess Daly would be my favorite because she made the greatest transformation.

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the scene where Daly and her mother were flying in the plane and the emotions they each felt.

Who was the most memorable character of A Colorful Life and why?

I think the young girl, Megan (I think that was her name - I wish there had been a written list of characters).

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the story. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys real-life stories. Not everyone can live "happily ever after". This is real life.
