Beschreibung von Audible

Editors Select, August 2017

My good friend in college introduced me to Tom Perotta with the movie Little Children, which is a certified doozy. Perotta is an astute and provocative writer, famous for his ability to pierce the moral oddities of modern life with unrivaled technique and grace. His stories can get uncomfortable, but that’s what I love about them: He tackles the gnawing insecurities of his characters head on. Mrs. Fletcher is no exception, and the deep cast of talented narrators do the novel great justice, many of them actors having worked with Mr. Perotta on one of his successful film or TV projects. —Michael, Audible Editor

Inhaltsangabe

From one of the most popular and best-selling authors of our time, a penetrating and hilarious new novel about sex, love, and identity on the front lines of America's culture wars.

Eve Fletcher is trying to figure out what comes next. A 46-year-old divorcée whose beloved only child has just left for college, Eve is struggling to adjust to her empty nest when one night her phone lights up with a text message. Sent from an anonymous number, the mysterious sender tells Eve, "U R my MILF!" Over the months that follow, that message comes to obsess Eve. While leading her all-too-placid life - serving as executive director of the local senior center by day and taking a community college course on gender and society at night - Eve can't curtail her own interest in a porn website called MILFateria.com, which features the erotic exploits of ordinary middle-aged women like herself. Before long, Eve's online fixations begin to spill over into real life, revealing new romantic possibilities that threaten to upend her quiet suburban existence.

Meanwhile, miles away at the state college, Eve's son, Brendan - a jock and aspiring frat boy - discovers that his new campus isn't nearly as welcoming to his hard-partying lifestyle as he had imagined. Only a few weeks into his freshman year, Brendan is floundering in a college environment that challenges his white-dude privilege and shames him for his outmoded, chauvinistic ideas of sex. As the New England autumn turns cold, both mother and son find themselves enmeshed in morally fraught situations that come to a head on one fateful November night.

Sharp, witty, and provocative, Mrs. Fletcher is a timeless examination of sexuality, identity, parenthood, and the big clarifying mistakes people can make when they're no longer sure of who they are or where they belong.

langweilig,ereignislos und enttäuschend

Was braucht dieses Hörbuch, um für Sie zu einem 4- oder 5-Sterne Hörerlebnis zu werden?

Geschichte entwickelt keinerlei Höhepunkte, mit Abstand das schlechteste Hörbuch ever

Würden Sie es noch mal mit einem anderen Hörbuch mit Finn Wittrock and Carrie Coon versuchen?

Die Sprecher heben sich nicht besonders ab

Sie mochten dieses Buch nicht ... Haben Sie vielleicht irgendwelche rettenden Maßnahmen dafür?

Man kann das Buch nicht empfehlen, ist einfach nur plump

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Schwer zu sagen, in welche Kategorie es gehört, es ist weder spannend noch lustig, die Geschichte plätschert ohne große Ereignisse vor sich hin, Schade um den Download, hatte sonst bisher immer nur tolle Hörbücher von Audible
