Great story but too much Mommy stuff
Would you listen to Piece of Work again? Why?
I liked the PR stuff and the getting back into work aspect for once successful people.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
It was good.
What does Emily Durante bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?
Her narration was great and she could do many voices. I am listening to another book by someone else right now and may stop because of the narration.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The first 90 minutes was a snooze with the Mommy and baby stuff. It then started to pick up and I am glad I continued.
Any additional comments?
If she has cut the mother and baby stuff, the book would have been much better. But I still really like the working story.

Great for women who need a little empathy
This is a great listen. From the interesting character descriptions given from the main character's perspective down to the nitty gritty of a mother's thoughts about career, family, and the outfits that used to fit 15 pounds ago. Julia is a refreshing and empowering voice for working women, full time homemakers, and those that juggle all of that and more. Some of the dialogue gets repetitious and (rarely but it happens) dull, which slows down the pace a bit more than I'd like. But for the most part I really enjoyed this one.
