I am so glad I decided to listen to this quirky novel on audio. It was a totally unexpected combination of emails, letters, articles, captain's reports and more. I really hesitate to say too much more about it as I don't want to spoil the experience for anyone. Despite Bernadette's obvious social phobias, you are still rooting for her and her daughter Bee is a delight. I am on the fence regarding the husband. He is an odd duck. Any which way, I would recommend this for road trips!
