Listening to Judith Ivey performing these characters is as good as a Broadway show. I laughed, I cried, I held my breath and pulled the car over so I could listen. The book itself is really just a bunch of unconnected character sketches that jump around in time, with no plot and no consistent perspectives. I get the feeling that it was published directly from the author's notebook, where she had written back stories on her characters and their children that never made it into the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. So I think the audio version actually adds something that makes me keep listening when I'm not sure I would have kept reading.

Vivian I totally agree with your review. Judith Ivey's narration was inspired and I loved the book in spite of all the negatives reviewers have pointed out.
