What disappointed you about Don’t I Know You??
It sounded like a fun premise, but in execution it was just annoying. Author's fictionalized memoir was boring; portrayal of celebrities had no irony or insight and was just kind of cringe-worthy.
What could Marni Jackson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
More fun with fantasy celebrity cameos - instead of taking them so seriously and drawing from facts anyone who's ever read Rolling Stone or People would know. Better "personal" stories. More humor in general.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Her extremely deep voice was a little distracting. Her attempts at slight re-creations of the celebrity voices? Substandard. Also, although I prefer listening to books by readers with non-U.S. accents, this (presumably) Canadian could not settle on a consistent pronunciation of "about." It was all over the place. Again, annoying.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Irritation, disappointment and regret that I wasted a credit.
Any additional comments?
When I ran into Stephen King in a diner in Maine and we became instant confidantes, he told me not to read this. KIDDING!
