Boring, Boring Boring

What would have made Things I've Learned from Women Who've Dumped Me better?

Stories that were actually funny or in some way insightful. This is an attempt by a series of so-so writers to replicate Hornby's High Fidelity - a feat with Hornby himself has not been able to do since that book.

What could the authors have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Made it funny, or not written it at all.

Did the narrator do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Narrative was reasonable, but nothing special.

What character would you cut from Things I've Learned from Women Who've Dumped Me?

Pretty much all of them. Only 1 story was worth the 10 minutes listening to.

Any additional comments?

Good on Audible for offering a credit back in exchange for this book. Otherwise it would have been a total waste. Don't buy it,
