the narration! ugh. weird. she's fine until she's voicing a child or a male. it's cartoonish and distracting and annoying and completely unnecessary in a memoir. It's fine to change voices in a novel, but in a memoir, especially when it's done poorly, is just not needed.
I had to cringe and grit my teeth when listening to these parts. It's my only caveat.
Otherwise, it's a very interesting story of the author's adventure in different cultures, and what she learned about language learning. It's very well researched and I learned a lot. The writing itself isn't excellent, but the story is interesting enough to overcome that.

This book is so interesting! The author goes to live in such different places, that I wouldn't think of living in, just to learn the three most useful languages. I like how candid she was about China, and just the interesting stories about her trying to conduct her family life in three different countries. It must have been exhausting to move so much in just two years. I don't know how she did it!
