Biography & Memoir • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

The familiar HGTV hosts of the popular "Fixer Upper" series offer their first audiobook, largely a family biography. It fills in much of the personal history of the couple, their family, and their highly successful real estate, home design, and television interests and activities. The narration is principally performed by Joanna Gaines, with segments usually capped by a brief humorous comment voiced by Chip Gaines. Sadly, in most long passages, Joanna's delivery produces a narration that sounds rushed rather than focused on entertainment and understanding. On the other hand, Chip has focused charm in his few and brief narration moments. As the couple veer from a sequential timeline to personal memories and milestones, the listening becomes confusing. Fans of the Gaineses will enjoy this audiobook, despite its shortcomings. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2016]
