Publisher's Summary

Kate is a 35-year-old woman who is obsessed with social media. So when her fiancé, Max, breaks things off at their rehearsal dinner, she goes straight to Facebook to share it with the world. But something's changed. Suddenly Kate's real life starts to mirror whatever she writes in her Facebook status. With all the power at her fingertips, Kate goes back in time to rewrite their history. Kate's two best friends, Jules and Liam, are the only ones who know the truth. In order to convince them she's really time traveled, Kate offers to use her Facebook status to help improve their lives. But her attempts to help them don't go exactly as planned, and every effort to get Max back seems to only backfire, causing Kate to wonder if it's really possible to change her fate.

Extremely Predictable

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not really well spent. I knew what was going to happen before it happened. Too preticable.


If you’ve listened to books by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke before, how does this one compare?

I've not and I don't think I would.


What didn’t you like about Amy McFadden’s performance?

The narrator was really bad. Her accent was odd. Very annoying. Her male voices were absolutely awful.


Did The Status of All Things inspire you to do anything?

Not read anything else by this narrator


Any additional comments?

I think this should have been in the teen genre. Very immature and predictable. I COULD NOT get passed the narrator. I don't think I even finished. I just skipped around toward the end and got the jist of it. $24 was way too expensive for this!

Perposterous, annoying

You prefer literature but you're not a snob. Occasionally you enjoy a lighthearted "beach read"; you may even dip your toe into the dreaded pool of chick-lit on occasion. Sometimes you're pleasantly surprised, as in the case of Bridget Jones' Diary, for example. Liane Moriarty does a good job delivering a great story, too.

Not so with this book. It serves up everything that makes you roll your eyes about chick-lit. Not only is the story utterly preposterous in the way a Hallmark channel Christmas movie, but even more annoying.

The narrator's voice, first of all... a counterfeit Joan Cusack with none of the charm or personality.

I finished this one only because i'd used all my credits and returns for the month. So it SI better than nothing I guess, but not by much. I did need to shit it off many times because i got so irritated by it.
