I guess this could be classified as a self help book; if so, it is not typical of the genre. This is my first book by Whoopi Goldberg and she narrated it herself. I was unaware that Whoopi has written a number of books. The book is about relationships. Whoopi says she hopes that readers won’t make the same mistakes she did or have to learn the hard way why a relationship is not working. She also says people should have a prenup so everyone is on the same page about finances.

The information is common sense but Whoopi is very frank and hilarious. I think she is a great story teller and a fantastic narrator. I hope in the future she does more narration of books, she is a natural. I also learned that Whoopi is a big fan of audiobooks and is a regular listener. This make a great fun book to listen to and I laughed throughout the book. This is a short book at a little over four hours.

Thanks, Whoopi!

If you could sum up If Someone Says "You Complete Me," RUN! in three words, what would they be?

Open, honest and humorous.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Whoopi, of course, though "character" doesn't apply here except that most of this book is a revelation of her own character, her own insights.

What about Whoopi Goldberg’s performance did you like?

Loved Whoopi from the first time I saw her perform. She is a genuine, down to earth gal, and funny as heck. Whoopi's big heart and sharp mind come across clear as sunshine, as she narrates her thoughts on relationships. As I listened, I felt like Whoopi was talking to me, not reading aloud. Great job, Whoopi!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

This book isn't movie material. It could be filmed as a course of study. I'd use the same title that Whoopi gave to her book.

Any additional comments?

I have reached the point in my own life where being single is something that I celebrate. Whoopi, in her own way and for her own reasons, has come to a similar conclusion. But there is a whole lot more in this book than Whoopi's satisfaction with living on her own. She has learned a great deal from her own decades of experiences, and more from observing the lives of others. I appreciated Whoopi's honest, open approach to the topics in her book. I also appreciated her acceptance of people's differences when it comes to what they need, what they want, and what they are willing to give when it comes to relationships. And, of course, the narrator was the perfect choice! I soaked up this book quickly and am already halfway through my second listen. This has been one of my most enjoyable, thought-provoking Audible experiences.
