This is the 19th book in this series. What kind of maniac changes the pronunciation of the main characters name this far downstream? I don’t care if the author tells you to. “Nope... already finished 18 of these saying Bo-lie-tho, I’m gonna ride that wave to the beach.”
Honestly.
I have no real problems.

I had no expectations coming into this book, but I was pleasantly surprised. The story moves right along and heads in directions you don’t expect.
Worth a listen.

Not a bad book, but I found it difficult to listen to. The meter of the the book mirrors the rhythm of source material. It doesn’t vary.
Dut dah dut dah daa.
Dut dah dut dah daa.
Dut dah dut dah daa.
Over and over. It was hard to get lost in the book.
Also, and this is entirely personal, I found myself really disliking Columbus, and not for the reasons I expected. He is portrayed here as a unlikeable lucky doofus.
If you listen to the sample and the narration doesn’t bother you, you won’t have a problem.

This is a reflection on me, not AS, but I don't need to know why you are a sad clown. I enjoy the jokes. Love her show, loved her movie, don't need the back story. Maybe you do and if you do, you will pleased.

If you've had any exposure to the motivational crowd (Robbins et al) you should pass on this one. It feels dated. If you?ve never experienced a motivational book or seminar?tuck in.
