Publisher's Summary

Cris Pereira hates starring in a cautionary tale. Alas, her recent heartbreak relegates her to this unbecoming fate. The only good thing about being dumped a foot from the altar is the newest layer to her punchy sarcasm. All she wants is a do-over, but this is not your average fairy tale, and wishes don't come true in the real world.
One Sunday afternoon, she meets a movie star. Tom Abramson is intelligent, charming, and impetuous. In other words, he plays the role a bit too well. She isn't falling for it. She knows better. All British men are not descendants of Fitzwilliam Darcy, and movie stars are genetic mutations gone awry: X-Men with statistical disadvantages and emotional handicaps. Keep your knight in shining armor. A modern girl can rescue herself, thank you very much. After all, dreams are for the foolhardy, nightmares are just a part of life, and . . . this is not your average fairy tale.

Fanfare

Would you listen to Fanfare again? Why?

If I listened again it would be because, an exceptional narration makes a good book, better.

If you???ve listened to books by Renee Ahdieh before, how does this one compare?

never listened to anything else by Ahdieh.

What about Beth Richmond???s performance did you like?

Beth Richmond did an exceptionally good narration. Beth's voice is pleasing to the ears. I love the way she makes every character distinct and gives so much to the personalities.Richmond has a lovely voice, and does any age, male or female in a believable way. I personally love to listen to anything she narrates, and bought this book because she is the narrator. You won't go wrong buying anything Ms. Richmond narrates. Her narration, of Jinx Schwartz's, Hetta Coffey series, was so amazing, that I now seek out books she narrates.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No, but Beth Richmond made the entire book fun and possible.

Any additional comments?

I recommend this book for Young Adults and up.

TOM!!!!!!!!!!

Loved every single part of this book! I was sucked in from the very beginning and could not stop listening. The story flowed flawlessly with perfectly developed characters! I fell in love with Tom and loved how his fame didn't affect his true character and his loyalty. I WANT A SEQUEL! Renee is a fantastic story teller and her words are so beatiful!

Don't

The narrator: the english accents sound like budget language lessons. Terrible and grating.
The story is obvious and trite, language is OK.
Don't waste your time.
