You know you've thoroughly enjoyed an audio-book when you want to listen to it all over again straight away. Every moment of this audio-book is a joy. What a triumph of a story. So interesting and all the characters are fantastically portrayed in words and voice. I highly recommend it!

Would you try another book written by Lucy Dillon or narrated by Juanita McMahon?

Story was rather self-indulgent and self-pitying. The word tedious kept springing to mind. I understand the moral of the story was to overcome that but it took a long time to get there.
It was made worse by the narrator who kept ... pausing at inappropriate moments. She also pronounced every name as if it were in CAPITAL LETTERS.

Would you recommend A Hundred Pieces of Me to your friends? Why or why not?

if you have nothing else to listen to.

Was A Hundred Pieces of Me worth the listening time?

not really

A riveting account of his and his father's roller coaster lives, simultaneously providing a modern history lesson of world affairs over the past 50-60 tumultuous years. Written with unmatched intellect, wisdom and humility. Loved it.

This is quite literally the best story I've ever read/listened to. Clever, quirky, unaffected, funny, spell-bindingly brilliant. Bring on the next one Liane!
