Another Morning Joe suggested and heavily marketed book written by White House insider Nicolle Wallace. I had high hopes for a fun engaging listen. The idea was a great one --full of possibilities. The execution was the problem. Instead of upbeat and in-the-loop it dragged on and sounded so careful and stilted that I found it hopeless. Can't recommend. Ho-hum --no more Morning Joe for me.

Where does Eighteen Acres rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I would rate Eighteen Acres in the top 25 of all of the audiobooks I have listened to both though Audible as well as other sources.
What did you like best about this story?
There were two things I liked equally: the different perspectives from multiple characters across the novel and the pace of the story. The pace was swift but not breakneck.
What does Susan Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Susan Bennett brings an additional audible sense of emotion.
If you could take any character from Eighteen Acres out to dinner, who would it be and why?
Melanie Kingston. I would absolutely want to dine with Kingston because of her access to the President. As much as it would be interesting to dine with the/a President, I would rather be able to pick the brain of her closest confidant.
Any additional comments?
Nicolle Wallace is not only an accomplished author, but she is also a fascinating person, and she brings that to her novel. Her novel is a must-read, and she is definitely someone who you should get to know beyond her work.
