I'm a casual, cynical and snarky sometimes fan of Oprah- sometimes put her show on as background noise. I thought this book would be right up my alley, but it turns out that the author is too snarky for even my taste. I really, really, really had the best intentions of liking the author/ narrator, but just couldn't make that connection. Novel doesn't really go anywhere- but I confess, I bailed 2 1/2 hours into it. Not sure if there was a redeeming ending. 2 1/2 hours of b*tching and complaining, nothing exciting or inspiring, no real developing plot. If you hated Julie and Julia like I did, you'll probably hate this. Wish I could get my $$ back.
The narrator / author does a nice job of not taking herself too seriously when reporting on an experiment she engaged upon a few years back. The last chapter though seemed all over the place and hard to follow. Then there's an interview tacked on that doesn't provide anything new, just the same rehash of the story you've just listened to. I would have preferred a postlogue of a "year out" reflection back. But overall, if you think you'd be interested in the topic, the narration is engaging and an easy listen.
