Liked the podcasts and lots of content great but the narrator sounds so patronizing in this book! Especially in sections where she talks about her daughter and what specifically worked for her repeatedly.
Also not sure if it's because of narrator but it comes across as lots more to do rather than minimalist with relentless lists and planning and more lists, it's a bit overwhelming!
I really love the podcasts though so I'm not sure if maybe just the narration that makes it come across as kind of self congratulatory and a bit rigid with relentless planning lists and rules.
I love the idea and maybe the actual book would be better or with a different narrator.

Would you try another book from Christine Koh and Asha Dornfest and/or Karen Saltus?
If it was more on minimalist living, sure. This was more about frugality in my opinion. I think there was more about how to raise your kids in general and "oh yeah, this person on this forum stated this" throughout the book instead.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
The book was boring, friends. I'm sorry. I am a minimalist parent and don't believe this is one I'd recommend to others.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Karen Saltus?
No idea. I don't know much about narrators. She did okay but I was a bit bored and didn't like how she voiced some of the other "forum writers" as snotty sounding. It was a bit rude in my opinion or assuming.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
