Great Story, Not a Great Reader
This was a well-written story taking place in the UK. For some reason, the reader is American, and the juxtaposition of the UK-specific dialect read in an American accent was jarring and distracting. She mispronounced some words repeatedly and it just took me out of the story too much. I'd skip this audio and read it instead if it sounds interesting to you.

Wonderful characters & engaging read
I almost didn’t buy this book, but am so glad I did. Even though this is a story about a woman with Aspergers, I connected with the protagonist, Elvira (Ellie), as she is warm, relatable and charming. It felt like I was right along with her as she forged her path in the world. She faced obstacles with honesty, grace and intelligence. Wow! What a fantastic story. I can absolutely see a movie being made. The only thing I wish was different is that, although the narrator did well, it was read in an American accent, while the book was set in the UK. It was disconcertingly strange to read about English life, culture and all the English characters in an American accent.
