Humor is an odd thing. I know from the other reviews I read that many people found this to be hysterically funny. I was really looking forward to a light-hearted upbeat listen. The problem was that I just didn't think it was funny at all. It all sounded forced. To my ear the narration was halting and strained. I would seriously suggest you listen to the audio sample carefully before download. Can't recommend.

I expected laugh out loud funny. Instead, all I could think was, please let it end. The material in this book is no more or less funny than anything any parent experiences.

Loved the story . Laughed the whole way through . The narrator was brilliant putting on different voices for the different characters. Definitely recommend this audiobook
Would you try another book written by Leanne Shirtliffe or narrated by Trudie Kessler?
Loved The narrators voice, it was fresh, and had buckets of character. It's a big part of why I purchased the book. She just sounds so funny! But the story telling is not funny. I could tell what was supposed to be funny, but it wasn't funny. The metaphors and similes were too many and varied, and there was far too much hyperbole. Over done, all overdone.
What will your next listen be?
A David Sedaris book. I thought this book was going to be like a female David Sedaris, with witty observations and insights,
What does Trudie Kessler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I would look out for other comedic books with this narrator. Honestly, great performance, but the story telling couldn't keep me listening.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Boredom, annoyance, tedium.
