Most Helpful

Eh. Kind of dry and more like a "manual".

Would you try another book from Michael Carr-Gregg and/or Michael Carr-Gregg?

I might.

What was most disappointing about Michael Carr-Gregg’s story?

I thought some of the book was very dry and seemed more like an instruction manual at times.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The accent was hard for me because I am from the United States. But at times, it was comical because of the word choices.

i would have appreciated less "it's going to suck"

This is an exceptionally short book, out of four hours or so i think the author has to spend at least an hour repeating in a thousand ways how much step families are going to suck for the first few years. YEAH i got it, next subject, ohh the book is over? great.
