books that bring every word and detail that might occur if in person are books that I don't particularly enjoy. Stories don't have to get caught up in the mundane the way life happens
The story was good, real life. I like how the parental struggle was played out loud. I think the daughter's patience was a stretch but maybe saints do exist
If tightened up and shortened it would be even better. The New York accent and whine was hard to settle know at first but I learned to go with the flow
Would you consider the audio edition of A Departure from the Script to be better than the print version?
I don't think you can compare an audio experience with a textual one, neither is inherently inferior or superior to the other. I "prefer" to listen to audio (I have increasingly poor eyesight and I like being able to "read" while doing almost anything), I think in this the narrator did a spectacular job, and I would say that listening to this would definitely enhance your experience even if you have already read the book.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Have you listened to any of Sheri Pigott’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This is the first time I have heard one of Sheri Pigott’s performances and I hope to hear more of them in the future
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Where does A Departure from the Script rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It ranks among my favourites.
What other book might you compare A Departure from the Script to, and why?
It's quite unique, in that it describes a mother's journey into acceptance of her lesbian daughter. It's very well written. The characters have real depth. It's funny in places - moving in others. So I can't think of any other books to compare it to.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
There were loads of brilliant scenes in there. But some of the scenes with the main character's mother and mother-in-law were laugh-out-loud funny.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
'Mother of the Traditional Jewish Lesbian Bride'
Any additional comments?
The narrator was superb throughout.
