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.

A surprise

I had no idea what this book was really going to be about--somehow, I knew nothing about Penn Jillette. Loved the book--his straight forward, honest narration and the engaging story. Entertaining for sure.

Blah blah blah

I like her podcast, but this book just seems like more of the same. Some parts were interesting, but mostly it felt like recycled self-help that we've heard a million times before.

Dark and wonderful

It's YA in every respect, but I loved it nevertheless. The narration was perfect. The idea of living in a world where death is no longer inevitable is so interesting to think about.

Beautiful story

Loved this book--such a beautifully written and engaging story. The narrator was great overall, but at times her depiction of the Kya's voice was annoying. She seemed like a strong character and her voice sounded so meek. Overall, a wonderful listen.

A good listen

Interesting to hear the backstory of this celebrity. Loved his honesty. Dragged in a few places, but otherwise I found it enjoyable.
