Funny and thoughtful, I like Ms. Loves's thinking. She seems to be an educated, smart, good-hearted woman who has seen a lot and gives her opinion on men.

Another good audible book from Adam Carolla but I wish he would stop with the F-bombs when it appears he's talking/recording off the top of his head. I'm not one of your construction site/ show business buddies...Adam gives thoughtful and entertaining advice here. He's a good guy who has worked hard in life and has a sense of gratitude.

Would you try another book from Andie Mitchell and/or Andie Mitchell?

The author overwrites, as if she is trying to make a magazine article fill a book. Sloth and over-indulgence are not that compelling to read about.

Has It Was Me All Along turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I will continue to read memoirs.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Reduce areas with too much descriptive language. She needs to take a writing class or work with an editor.

Was It Was Me All Along worth the listening time?

Not worth a second listen.

Any additional comments?

Andie Mitchell has an easy voice to listen to.

What disappointed you about I'm Looking Through You?

The author's/narrator's voice was rather unsettling to me. Having first read the print version, I knew the story and thought it was compelling. The narration had a 'la dee dah' tone and tempo which bothered me, knowing the impact the author's gender issues had on her unsuspecting wife. Surprisingly, I couldn't get beyond the first few chapters...

What didn’t you like about Jennifer Finney Boylan’s performance?

The tone and tempo of her voice seemed rather removed from the situation. Rather flighty.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I did like the written version.

Any additional comments?

This is the first book that I've returned due to the narration.

Would you consider the audio edition of Lost for Words to be better than the print version?

Edward St. Aubyn's dazzling writing has been performed, not just read, by Alex Jennings. I own both the print and audible versions.

What made the experience of listening to The Iceman the most enjoyable?

The narrator caught and kept my attention. Hard to believe he once played a character named "Balki" on a sitcom.

What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?

His variety of voices, tempo and timber, an excellent narration.

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

I felt disgust for the killer, sympathy for his abused family, and great admiration for the police officers that stopped the killing.

Any additional comments?

This book came out before the killer's filmed interviews and death. There is a lot more related information now available on the internet.
