Where'd You Go, Bernadette: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Maria Semple

Narrated By: Kathleen Wilhoite

Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA

Date: August 2012

Duration: 9 hours 30 minutes

Summary:

A misanthropic matriarch leaves her eccentric family in crisis when she mysteriously disappears in this whip-smart and 'divinely funny' novel that inspired the movie starring Cate Blanchett (New York Times).
Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect; and to 15-year-old Bee, she is her best friend and, simply, Mom.

Then Bernadette vanishes. It all began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle--and people in general--has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands. A trip to the end of the earth is problematic.

To find her mother, Bee compiles email messages, official documents, and secret correspondence--creating a compulsively readable and surprisingly touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's role in an absurd world.

    Eh. Story gets a little wacky at the end. Had some good potential there but idk didn't do it for me. The narrator is very talented though.

    Loved the narration and thought she captured B's voice and emotion. This book was full of laughs as well as drama.. It was really well constructed. Loved the book!

  • Dora F.

    I liked the story in the beginning, then when I thought about what was this all about I really didn't like It. Self indulgence story. The narrator could tune down a bit the dramatization.
