Finished this a little over a week ago and I forgot to post. Comparisons to Eleanor Oliphant were spot on for me. I listened to the #audiobook and found the narrator to be a perfect match to the main character. Sad, funny, awkward, and British.

I'm going to join in on the #24B4Monday #readathon to the extent of my abilities! I have class, 2 study sessions, 2 marches/rallies (for housing), an interfaith Thanksgiving meal, worship, and a video call session with my family on my plate, but I'll definitely be doing some seminary-related reading too! And I'll be running and cooking, which will give me some #audiobook time. 😊 @TheReadingMermaid @Andrew65 @jb72

MrBook Wow! Busy times ahead! 😁 8h
Megabooks You‘re amazing balancing all that! 7h
Andrew65 Good luck, especially around such a busy time. 😊👍 7h
Emilymdxn I‘m always so in awe of how full and fascinating your time is! Interfaith thanksgiving sounds absolutely wonderful - I‘ve only ever been to a thanksgiving dinner once but they can be really lovely. I hope you have a great weekend! 6h

All books should be narrated by Colin Firth. Ok, not all books, but most books. 😆 What can I say, I love his voice. Anyhoo, looking at the reviews for this, I can see where some of the negative reviewers are coming from, but I personally really enjoyed this. It‘s a tragic love story, and the two main characters are very flawed, which I think makes it more relatable. I‘d recommend it. 4⭐️

Clare-Dragonfly Hmm. I don‘t like audiobooks much but I really enjoyed A Christmas Carol read by Neil Gaiman. Colin Firth might be worth a try! 🤔😄 2h

Excellent book on getting stuff done! So many practical tips and suggestions mixed with theory and bug ideas. It'll make you aware of areas you can easily and quickly improve in your life.

Guess who finally finished!!! I'm telling you, without the #audiobook for this, I don't think I would have finished. I appreciate parts of this story and the latter parts of the book were way more interesting than the first but I found myself losing interest so early on that there was no redeeming it.Listening from the beginning might have been a better choice.

StayCurious Yeah I had really mixed feelings too! Funny because beforehand I heard such good things. 17h
FantasyChick @StayCurious honestly, I can see why a lot of people love it...the story IS interesting and I love that time period but it just missed the mark for me completely. If I would have listened rather than read, I think I would have enjoyed it so much more. 17h
Eggbeater Just started listening to this one on audio. So far, so good. The virginity "expunging" with vet made me laugh in an icked out way. 12h
FantasyChick @Eggbeater YES!!!! I found so many people were weirded out at that part but I thought it was hilarious in the strangest way 😂 Good choice on the audio. I think it changes the whole experience of the book 11h

In Cold Blood | Truman Capote

I‘m so glad I joined in the readalong for this book! I‘m not a big true crime reader, but I truly appreciated this story and the discussion so far. Truman Capote is a fantastic writer, making you feel that you‘re right alongside as events are happening. At the same time, I‘m really curious as to how much his own involvement at the time influences the story and the actual accuracy of some aspects, although it‘s impossible to ever know for sure.

batsy Yes! Nice review. Capote's writing is so vivid. 1d
readordierachel I'm really curious about that, too. Great review! 16h
readordierachel Can't wait to hear what you think of that one! 10h

A remarkably well written book. The subject matter definitely sheds light on a disturbingly dark time in U.S. history. I couldn‘t wrap my mind around some of the more horrific bits. I‘m still processing. Cora certainly had an indomitable spirit. It won the Pulitzer Prize for good reason.
