If you could sum up Nobody's Perfect in three words, what would they be?
Fun ... Sexy read.
What other book might you compare Nobody's Perfect to and why?
The "full figured" angle made it a "real" read.
Have you listened to any of Joy Nash’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Pulled me in completely to the setting and characters of the novel. Did good male voice but nailed the female voice! Hope she "reads" more books soon.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Made me LOL!
This is a contemporary , light romantic tale that flows okay, albeit very predictably, except for, maybe, a small part of the last 50 minutes of the story. But the slight twists caused exasperation instead of interest b/c the two twists were too late to try to create complexity in this predictable story. And the ending was still very clear. The slight twists caused an unnecessary detour with no meaning or purpose. Another irritation was that some details in the story were misaligned or not addressed as the story went on, which also took away from the realism. From the beginning, I struggled to understand why Nella agreed to marry Sam. The reasons that were given seemed too little and barely plausible for most people in her position. At times, the dialogue for the 3-year-old boy seemed developmentally beyond the average 3-year-old. And the narrator did a poor job portraying him. Thankfully he didn’t have a lot of dialogue in this short story.
I liked that Sam’s interest in Nella progressed in a reasonable manner and was based on something more than Nella’s physical attributes, though they were frequently mentioned and included in his attraction. The sex scenes started at almost 4 hours into the story and were far from explicit. Instead, the 3 back-to-back scenes were light, short, and sweet. I liked that the author was trying to portray larger women, generally more “normal” than not in the real world, as desirable and confident. But I didn’t find it helpful to make the terms "full-figure" and "fat" and even obese, sort of, synonymous with one another. It just seemed false and unrealistic.
