I could so relate to the author...I'm curious how her life turned out...It's a great, easy listening adventure.

I'll never know whether I would have found this book amusing if I'd read it instead of hearing it performed, apparently, by someone huffing helium every other sentence. It seemed as if the producers decided to up the funny factor by coaching the reader to be as shrill and nasal as possible (and to experiment freely with bad fake accents).
I also wish I'd been warned that the book's "humor" would consist of an endless, predictable string of Jewish-mother tropes and cutesy women's-magazine one-liners about catching/keeping/losing men. Ugh.
I knew it wasn't going well when I started forwarding through 10 minutes at a time, then 20 minutes at a time, hoping the mother character was going to shut up or die or something. She didn't. And neither did the main character.
I usually don't mind a dose of chick-lit, but this was truly so cloying and pointless that I'm actually sitting here venting in a nasty review. Double ugh.
