Mini Reviews: The Immortalists, Home Work

I don’t know why some folk have so much problem with audiobooks, but I totally swallow these up almost as much as I do hard copies of books! More so, because at least I can do other things while I listen!

The Immortalists was kind of strangely-written, and going into this book, I thought it was a type of magical realism book. I’m not a big fan of those, but I don’t even think this one fits the “magical” bill. To be honest, the first half was done well, albeit trigger warnings of graphic content and suicide.

Home Work is a memoir of Julie Andrews, though she does employ her daughter as a co-writer of the book. It’s cute that this is the case; but I felt like this was why the story itself was written, not so much as a glimpse of much of Hollywood, but of a broader story about family. And honestly, that’s not what I was expecting or hoping for.

Have you read either of these books? What did you think?
