Very interesting autobiography (although I réalise autobiography is not my favorite genre...) By the end I had got over my disappointment that it was not read by billy. A lot of what I enjoy about his humour is the way he says things - Gordon Kennedy has a nice voice but it is not Billy...

Nice autobiography

Very nicely read by the author but I was expecting to laugh a bit more. The funniest parts are when she’s quoting her dad - wish I had his autobiography he sounds like a hoot!!!

Glad I persevered

I was not taken by the first few chapters of this book but decided to persevere given all the very positive reviews. I'm glad I did. For me the story really turned around from when she meets Barack. Her relationship with him and the concessions she makes whilst maintaining her girl power and indépendance were enlightening. Sometimes moving, I didn't want to switch it off. Her voice is gentle and reassuring (almost dull if you're not in the mood!!) - certainly not the hyper enthusiastic American style we're now used to.
Over all this book definitely reinforces the awesome image of this amazing couple and their suitability for that big White House and all that goes with it. I wish we could have him back! Suitably scathing of the new prez too! Read it! Don't let yourself get bored with the first part... although it is nice to know Michelle's background, it gets better later on.

I found the story line slow and tedious. I selected it having loved Grisham as a teenager and enjoying other books read by Lavoy but this one was truly laborious to listen to. No twists no passion no crazy characters just extensive detail about failing authors and literary dealers... I even dropped off during the last chapters and can't be bothered to go back to listen to the climax. Boring...

Enjoyed it by the end

I found this book was quite business/sales oriented to begin with but was glad to persist through to the last chapters. I'm sure I'll listen again in a few weeks/months to see how much I have put into practice.

No introduction to each story?!?

I have been enjoying the stories which are dramatized excellently! But I have no idea which one I just listened to... there was no announcement of the title at the beginning nor at the end. Northanger Abbey is very well done (almost too much as each of the three episodes is fully detailed) but the next two have no introduction. Surely this could be amended for a more pleasurable listener experience?
