Out-of-Date Content

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was just okay. With the information being past its prime time, one should at this point choose a more current book - no later than 2013. The world of couponing has drastically changed since 2011. Of course, I do not fault the author for telling those strategies pertinent to 2011.

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

Ditched the chain-smoking narrator and cut back on the author's bragging and constant horn-tooting. It was very disrespectful to gloat about giving others "handouts."
The author "pumped herself up," but deflated and insulted those in need.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Hillary Huber?

Just about any female with clean, healthy lungs.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Wouldn't be a movie b/c of the nature of the content.

Any additional comments?

Remind myself to never purchase another book narrated by Hillary Huber. Her name is actually on my written list of "horrible narrators."

Interesting Book

Would you listen to How to Shop for Free again? Why?

Yes, there were lots of ideas in this book that I will want to return too.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed when the author was talking about shopping in retail stores and how to make a profit doing that.

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

I am not sure if I have listened to this narrator before or not.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Nothing was really moving.
