This book really resonates with me as someone who grew up in the 80s. It's funny and sometimes moving - finally meeting Wesley! - and mostly spot on although not including The SureThing, aka the greatest John Cusack film of all time, is a glaring omission.
Her analysis of Dirty Dancing was a bit of a revelation; I hadn't thought about it in those terms before.
I wish Hadley was narrating her own book as she was great on Be Awesome. However Cassandra Harwood does a fine job.

Would you consider the audio edition of Life Moves Pretty Fast to be better than the print version?
I have not used the print version - its bit idiotic to ask on an audiobook website?
What did you like best about this story?
It was a non fiction book - it was also the first I bought upon the recommendation of another Audible user (whose review you can also find on the page) and I am glad I did - It was entertaining, mood uplifting and thought provoking as well.
Which character – as performed by Cassandra Harwood – was your favourite?
The book is divided in chapters that more or less focus on one or two movies at the time - it makes more sense when you have either seen the movie or used to it being a reference, even if only in jokes. The narrator is very good, it makes you feel like having a good chat in a pub rather than a monocord recording.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I was struck by how considerate the building of women characters were in 80s movie and how that element was what made me feel good or like them in a way that current movies seldom do. the author presented a convincing case on this particular topic, not just opinion based.
Any additional comments?
Great book on movies and women in movies for everyone interested in either of those. One of the gem I found as an audiobook that I might not have picked up in print.
