A Few Tidbits You Didn't Know
This is a satisfying work. I found out all sorts of things about my favorite writers. Kathleen Krull crams delicious morsels into this enjoyable book from amusing anecdotes, catchy quotes to outrageous behavior. It is chock full of information I didn't know. John C Brown and Melissa Hughes did full justice to the work and made it a thorough pleasure.

Uninspired & Lazy
What was most disappointing about Kathleen Krull’s story?
This audiobook had nothing of particular interest, by that I mean it was indistinguishable from somebody dryly reading (no, skimming) various wikipedia articles, going into no specific detail, having no style or unique voice. If I were the author of this cash-in, I would be ashamed to put my name to it.
