The story was adorable, romantic, funny and well-written! The narrator was one of my favorites, really made me feel like the author was sitting across the table from me at a café, telling me her life story!
By now I should know not to read/listen to books about women discovering who they are through journeys. Didn't like "Wild" didn't like "Eat, Pray, Love", and I didn't really like this book either. Still, even if I did like this genre I would have had a hard time with this effort. It has its charms... the author's practical advice for leaving a life she didn't like is good and even inspiring. But as it continues the practical side declines and the story turns into a princess-meets-her-prince and ends with Happily Ever After. I'm happy she found something great in her personal life, but she could have done better conveying all the intricacies of this new life and business she was building throughout the last half. At times I felt like a sucker, like maybe I was reading a compilation of blog posts (repetitive at times) to fund the next stage of her desperate search for an un-job. The narration was flat-out bad. The accents were unrecognizable and the haughty pronunciations made me dislike Janice at times, through no fault of her own. Best of luck to you, Janice. I hope you continue your success.
