Awesome book, awful narrator.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I love Clueless and hearing about the back story and on set goings on was very interesting.


How could the performance have been better?

Get a different narrator. She was AWFUL. She inserted completely different inflection and tone into the movie quotations she read, making me think she has never seen the movie. It really took away from the content. Added to that, seemingly deliberate poor pronunciation. Example: Richard "Grecko" (known to most of us as Richard Greico) . I understand she is a comedian and maybe she thought this was a great esoteric joke (which I could appreciate in an stand up routine), but an Audiobook isn't the place the place for it.


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

I love Audible but his book is best in hard copy.


Any additional comments?

Get multiple narrators. One for the commentary, one for the female comments and one for the male comments. We don't need an original cast recording, just something to differentiate.
