Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No. In fact, I told my sister to only read it if she had read and re-read everything she wanted to read.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The story jumped around so much I never really found anything interesting.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
As for her voice and her portrayal of characters, the narrator did a fine job. She didn't convey the parts that were supposed to be humorous as such. She read them flat.
Do you think How to Start a Fire needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Any additional comments?
I have read all of Lisa Lutz's books. They are all highly entertaining. Maybe if I had read this book in print instead of listening to it, I would have found it more enjoyable.

I strongly recommend this book be read rather than played. The chapters skip back and forth to various decades and it was very hard to keep track, especially if you only listen to a few chapters a day like I did. I'm playing it again so I can catch some of the details that I missed the first time. Overall the story was interesting and well-written, but I wanted it told in chronological order. I've read all of Lutz's other books and found them hilarious. This book is not funny.
