Loved the story. Great narration.

I have been married 38 years and the author captured the ebb and flow. The humor was excellent.

Depressing. Not funny.

I am into dark humor, sure. But this was just sad, and ultimately boring.

Shockingly truthful and hilarious insight to marri

Audible popped this title for me after a sci fi saga and it took me completely by surprise right from the title all the way to the end. I immediately recommended it to my family then said "oh god what have I recommended to my family" as I kept listening. Best book I've heard in years. Really gives you a lot to think about, and laugh about, in your relationship.

Cute

Very cute story. It was like listening to a short play or improv skit. I miss the theater. 🥸

Great performance and story

I really liked the book and the performance. I picked it up with no expectation or knowledge of the story because it was free with the membership. The main reason was the length and the bizarre title. It was a pleasant listen.

Depressing AF

Not sure how anyone enjoyed this. I personally could go the rest of my life without having to hear a couple bicker back and forth for an hour. Also not at all funny. I felt like I must have listened to something completely different that a lot of these reviews.

Witty and original story of Bounty paper towels

This is a quirky story of a recently deceased couple being interviewed by a market research analyst on behalf of Bounty paper towels. They look back over their lives and contemplate what went wrong whilst answering questions about brand loyalty and their attitude towards cost, absorbency, sheet size (apparently smaller sheets are a false economy) and strength. This is highly original and it genuinely made me laugh out loud. I still prefer Fiesta though. I don't know, somehow it has a nicer feel than other brands.
