Tom Hanks is one of the best narrators out there--and I've listened to many. He makes these characters come alive and by the end you feel like they're family. I listened to this book during the COVID19 quarantine---and listening was one of the most comforting parts of my day. Highly recommend.

A good listen

Interesting story. Neat to hear some of the reasons behind his song lyrics. Love his music.

Even better than the hard copy.

I loved this book--but the audio version was even better. Tembi's Italian made me feel like taking Italian lessons and booking a trip to Italy. The words sounded so much better than they did in my head! The story is sweet and sad, but also funny and thoughtful. Highly recommended.

The story was good but the narration was what really made it come alive for me.

Warning: This book will make you angry. It was full of interesting facts, but I'm not sure how many are up to date (I checked the Siri fact and it was wrong). The ideas are sometimes manipulated too--but overall, it is a big eye opener and should be listened to by EVERYONE (especially men who likely have no idea).

I grew up watching Demi's life on screen, but had no idea that her life story was so rich. This memoir is engaging and refreshingly honest--I enjoyed it and would recommend it highly. Excellent to hear it in Demi's voice too.

The story is engaging and the narrator is excellent. Finished it in 2 days--wish there was more as I'm sad it's over.

I had no idea who the author was, just picked this up spontaneously. I was pleasantly surprised by how engaging the book was. It was a great listen!

Print text was better

I tried to listen and couldn't get into this book. Later, I read it in print and absolutely loved it. Perhaps the different perspectives make it harder to follow in audio, I'm not sure-- I would recommend the book, but just not in this format.

Excellent

I liked this book so much that, after listening, I bought a hard copy. I plan to teach oral storytelling to my class, and this was the perfect resource. I've tried to apply some of the lessons to my own informal storytelling and have learned that it truly is a difficult art to tell a terrific story. If that's your goal, this will help. Engaging and instructive.
