I enjoyed We Are Never Meeting in Real Life. while listening to it, but it’s been a couple of months since I finished it now, and it hasn’t really stuck with me, so I’m rating this one three stars. The only story that I remember with any clarity was the one about her cat, which I was always going to remember because it was about a cat, but also because her cat was SOMETHING ELSE. And also because the way she writes about her cat was very memorable by design. Not your typical cat mom, here.
Setting aside specifics, which have mostly escaped me, the thing that I really remember about this book is how she just laid it all out there. All of it. I feel like she held nothing back, and if she did, I am slightly agog. Because stuff that if it applied to me I would never share with another living soul, she just plopped it down on the paper (or computer) and then said it again out loud with her voice after it had probably been edited and she left it all in a bunch of times. And I am impressed and also fascinated that she can do that.
If you like audiobooks, this is a good one. She’s got a talent for reading her own words out loud.
I think I’m going to read her latest book sometime next year, the one with the bunny on it, and then we’ll see after that.
