Who is Ginny Cooper? She is every woman who knows the exact number of calories in a Snickers bar, every woman who has ever struggled with her weight. She is every woman who has grappled with the gray areas, every woman who has wanted to escape her own life. At times the listener will want to shake her and talk some sense into her. But Ginny will have to navigate her own road. And through it all, we root for her. Ginny's childhood memories of her fading hometown provide a bittersweet backdrop for The To-Do List.

This book had me at "The"!
Any additional comments?
I. Enjoyed. This. Listen. So. Much.
From the first "to do" list to the last, this book had it all. The narration was exceptional. Sheckells took us on a wonderful journey that never disappointed. The author created the characters (and major kudos to JC Miller) but Sheckells made Ginny real. I felt everything. Every. Thing.
This was a well-written book with a well-written main character and everyone should take Ginny's journey!

As a fellow procrastinator I understand!
I wonder how many women in America are like Ginny Cooper: miserable in their marriage, afraid to speak up and stand up to their emotionally abusive husbands. After so many years their soul shrivels into little worms, and it will take a serious amount of momentum and self-determination to get out of their situation.
This book has made me take special notice of my marriage. I am fortunate to have a very strong wife who is not afraid to stand up to me if I upset or offend her in any way, and I feel our relationship is stronger and long-lasting because of it. However, Ginny is the polar opposite of my wife: meek, timid, afraid to stand up for herself, and it’s frustration being an observer to this.
The To-Do List was a very interesting listen. It was a linear story - there were no twists or turns. But it was a tale that peeked into the life of an abused woman and how she mentally coped with it, and how she turned it around. I think it’s hilarious how she never got anything done. Her to-do list remained static for most of the book. As a fellow procrastinator I understand!
As the narrator, Sara Sheckells did an outstanding job. I love how she integrated the personality of each character into her voice. Cal was a prick in the story, and Sheckells made me want to punch him every time he opened his mouth. He kids Kevin and Kelly were the typical parent-averting, tech-savvy disrespectful teenagers of today’s generation, and Sheckells nailed their acts.
This audiobook was gifted to me in exchange for an unbiased review.
