I think the story could be good but can't enjoy all the f words. What a waste. Do authors really think this word adds some artistic element to the story? Asking for a refund.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Deal of a Lifetime?

The ending.

What about Santino Fontana’s performance did you like?

Very good performance. You could see what he was saying.

If you could take any character from The Deal of a Lifetime out to dinner, who would it be and why?

The son. I like his simplicity and easiness.

Any additional comments?

Short but really leaves you thinking. Very good

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I have listened to all of Fredrik Backman's books and was really looking forward to this one and sad that it was the last one which makes the disappointment even greater. If you want to know the worst about locker room humor this is the book for you. I have never listened to a book with more crudity, profanity, cruelty and everything that is bad about sports. Where his books where warm and everything good about people including their faults this was a big disappointment. I keep listening because I want it to be good but have to take my ear phones out of my ears to avoid the garbage jokes and F words. Why, Mr. Backman? Real life? So is diarrhea but I don't want to read about it.

Could you see Beartown being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

They would have to clean it up.

Would you consider the audio edition of Britt-Marie Was Here to be better than the print version?

I haven't read to print version but the narrator added a quality that would have been missed.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Britt-Marie because she was so different but I could still relate to her.

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

She adds the British accent and her own interpretation that makes it even more enjoyable

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

Laugh, smile, and feel sober.

Any additional comments?

I felt the loss of a good friend when it ended which is a good sign that it was a good book. I would highly recommend it.
