Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Only if they're really interested in a very long story having little to do with mental illness.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The family's heritage. Just was too long.
Do you think Four Rooms, Upstairs needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Any additional comments?
This may be for others but not for me. Too many other good books on the subject. If it had Ben half as long I may have finished it.
What made the experience of listening to Four Rooms, Upstairs the most enjoyable?
I think Linda Shapiro told her story well and showed remarkable insight into the world of mental illness. She did not preach or whine about it just wove it into her autobiography.
Who was your favorite character and why?
George. While George did not narrate this book, I have listened to him many times as the narrator of other books and he is one of the greatest narrators I have ever heard. Also Linda who had the grace to hold herself above the family problems.
Which scene was your favorite?
When they were in the theater and George was on stage. The mother had a funny albeit embarrassing reaction to the kissing scene.
