Not my style
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
This book was totally not my style. Not that it was badly written, but I simply couldn’t connect with any of the characters. On paper, Leigh Fielding seems like a fun grown-up, but in fact she’s rather annoying, and is way too glib. I really couldn’t relate to the flippant manner she went about her life. This smart-alecky attitude started to irritate me after the first 100 pages. And what about the author’s anus fixation? What was that ABOUT?
In short this is the story about Leigh Fielding who decides to have her life back after having spent the past five years on dialysis and then finally getting a kidney transplant. With her new-found vitality (and donor Larry’s kidney) in tow, Leigh hits the road for an excursion that will carry her from Wisconsin to California, with a few stops in between: Mount Rushmore, the Badlands, the Rockies, Las Vegas–and a memorable visit to thank donor Larry’s family for the second chance.
Honestly, I wish Leigh would have shut up once in a while, during this trip, and let the reader enjoy the scenery in what could have been a great road-trip! Nope, this book was not for me.
Would you ever listen to anything by Jess Riley again?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The writing and editing was good.
