A fun listen for fans of Emma Thompson

Would you listen to Nanny McPhee and The Big Bang again? Why?

Maybe. It's a strange book in that there is the story and, interspersed with it, is Emma Thompson's diaries from the filming. I think that switch back and forth can be hard for some, but my kids actually liked it. For myself, I will say that I preferred the diaries to the actual story.

If you’ve listened to books by Emma Thompson before, how does this one compare?

Again, it is hard to compare because of the format. However, I loved that there is just so much honesty from Emma Thompson in this.

What does Emma Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Honestly, I don't think anyone could read this story (or diary) like Thompson.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Ummm.....there is a film of this book.

Story+Film Diary+Emma Thompson=Joy

I've listened to this audiobook perhaps four times over the last several years, and it delights me every time. I wish Emma Thompson would narrate more books, preferably including a full memoir of her own. Her voice is beautiful, her delivery delicious. And she is remarkably insightful and emotionally wise. This book alternates between being a diary of the experience of filming Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang, and a reading of Nanny McPhee Returns. Her character expression in the story is fabulous, and the story itself is both funny and uplifting. What I enjoy even more is the education she gives us about the technical aspects of filmmaking, and the physical and emotional effort it requires of everyone involved. Her understanding and love of human nature make the whole thing a fascinating and joyful listen.
