Amazing story

Would you consider the audio edition of It's a Thin Line to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version, but the audio performance was amazing.

What other book might you compare It's a Thin Line to and why?

I would compare Kimberla Lawson Roby's, 'The Perfect Marriage' to this book because it kept my attention and was so interesting.

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

Susan Spain really made the characters come alive. I felt the emotion of the characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I could have listened to this book in one sitting if I had more time. I think I finished this book faster than I've finished any other book on audible.

Love it!

What made the experience of listening to It's a Thin Line the most enjoyable?

The way I could completely understand each character. I love when it takes a little while to figure them out what makes each character tick. But then I don't like to have to wait too long to figure it out. Once it was explained what was going on in the mind set of each of the main characters. I really felt like. I knew each one.

What was one of the most memorable moments of It's a Thin Line?

When the Mother found out about her Brain Tumor issue. I just lost my mother to pancreatic and lung caner. We found out what she had due to her getting a brain tumor. The recovery and the things her mother went thru, made me remember everything i went thru with my mom. It was like i re-lived the moment. It just shows that most things that you read. Come from True knowledge. In this instance. If you were to tell me, she made the whole way her mom's life played out. I wouldnt believe that she hadn't experienced or knew someone that experienced this.

Have you listened to any of Susan Spain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I think that I have listend to other books that are narrated by her. She did very well. I would listen to her on other books again.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I WANTED to.. But I have trained myself to only listen during WORK hours. This way i am keeping my mind off the drama and issues in the every day Cubicle life.

Any additional comments?

I love and have read almost everything and now listen to That Kimberla Authors. BRAVO!
