Good overview

Good general over view of starting to think about full time bring. I took notes on what stuck with me . Would have preferred a woman narrator to match author

Written by a woman but narrated by a man

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes, Have a woman narrator. It really makes a difference to me when listening to an audible book to have the same gender as narrator.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Living the Simple RV Life?

When I found out at the end that this was written by a woman. I did not know who Sunny Skye was, I just listened to the book.

Did Richard Henzel do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes however his voice reminds me of films I use to watch in class in public school. I almost did not continue to listen to the book because of this. Made the book more of a textbook instruction than a "story".

Do you think Living the Simple RV Life needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not sure.

Any additional comments?

The book covered most ins and outs when thinking of full time RVing. It was written well enough, But the narrator was not a good match and gave it a lessor good feeling for me.
