Publisher's Summary

Sometimes it's tough to be Lucy O'Rourke. Disasters of all sorts seem to seek out this globe-trotting photographer. Whether it's on a raft in Cataract Canyon, a crocodile attack on the Amazon, a hurricane in the Gulf Stream or even the two-legged kind (men), Lucy just can't seem to help making the wrong choice at precisely the wrong moment. This collection of eleven linked stories features the unique blending of romance and adventure that is the trademark of Pam Houston.

Author Should Not Narrate

The stories are terrific, but the narration is not great. It is a rare author who can narrate their own book well. Unfortunately, this author is not one of them. Ms. Houston's reading style is deadpan and monotonous. I think this is a pleasant book, but would have preferred reading this myself, rather than listening.

Narration is painful

Because I am lazy, I never take the time to write these reviews unless I’m compelled. I like Pam Houston’s writing, but I haven’t actually heard a word, nor really truly, because the narration makes me want to poke my ears out. Slow, depressed, sing songy wah wah wah. No passion. It’s like she’s reading out loud, but thinking about what she’s going to make for dinner.
