I'm not even finished listening to this book, but I really love the narrator (Kathe Mazur). Within the first few minutes of reading, I was laughing to myself in my cubicle. I think her "EARMUFFS!!!!" outburst was hilarious. This is not usually the genre of book that I read, but I'm so glad that I did. As a mother of 2 little ones, I can relate to those who say that the message this story conveys is not at all funny, however, the book is very well written, and the narrator is quite engaging. It's a great read!

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. Each day, as I arrived at work, I could not wait for the end of the day so I could listen to this story some more! I started listening to audiobooks during Lent to help me overcome my impatience with other drivers ... and it works! Now, I don't care how long it takes me to get somewhere!
In the Nanny Diaries, it is amazing how wealthy people treat those they feel are "beneath" them. It is all too true, I'm sure. This is a very good listen and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

What did you like best about The Nanny Diaries? What did you like least?
The Nanny Diaries start promising: joking about rich families and their habits of wanting to be involved with their children's but not wanting to be the one's actually spending time with their kids. The story included some interesting threads, but did not work on it.
I found the end rather disappointing. Also the Nanny shows the textbook example of good and controlled behaviour (unrealistic). It would be more realistic if the author had really let her freak out from time to time.
Would you recommend The Nanny Diaries to your friends? Why or why not?
No, it did not explore its full potential.
Which character – as performed by Kathe Mazur – was your favourite?
The main character
Was The Nanny Diaries worth the listening time?
I did not throw the book away, but I am also not sad to start a new book.
