but the performance is questionable. i liked the narrator for some reason and i wanted it to work and kept hoping it will get better but the way he messed up the voices and accents was consistent and very confusing sometimes which is a shame because the book is fascinating and awesome

Been struggling to start this review as I felt like saying a bunch of endearing things about Mr Everett, things only a grandmother might say.. And that would not do any justice to this book as it is so lovely, awesome and cool, all at once!! His words and music are the ultimate companion on the darkest of days when one cannot imagine having company and turn those times completely around to the point of wanting to crawl out of one's skin for the joy of deciding to stay alive to be able to listen to what E has to say.. but it never becomes too much as one finds oneself cracking up with random laughs on the way, so it's all good. Mr E always has your back when no one else seems to.

Pure pleasure on any other day, too.

Many thanks and a whole lot of love to The Chet as well.

The only note I would like to make here is that while Joseph Lelyveld welcomes her with the first few minutes of introduction, the narrator is Joan Didion herself.

it's all very odd, isn't?

delightful at times, painful most of the time. well worth a listen, but I was glad when I finally heard audible's hope..
Juliet Stevenson helps with soldiering through it all.

it was surely a lifesaver for me in desperate times (and will be in the future as well). i wish i knew how to speak of this more eloquently because i can't just say nothing. please let yourself have this experience, it is well worth 4 hours of your time on this planet. thank you

The stories are a pleasure as always, the forced accents are a bit of a nuisance.
