Audiobook Review: Dangled Carat: Hilary Grossman

Dangled Carat

Elsie’s Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Narrated by Lisa Beacom

I loved this humorous, heartrending and ultimately triumphant memoir of navigating a relationship with someone who has commitment issues. It has to be a painful experience in retrospect to tap into your emotions and feelings and put them on paper, I’m not that brave, nor would I have the patience of Job that Hilary had.

The story centers around Hilary a 27-year-old woman who’s on a relationship break from her on again off again boyfriend when she meets Marc the man of her dreams and a confirmed bachelor, but what happens when the confirmed bachelor begrudgingly falls in love too?

Sometimes I felt as though Marc’s character was needlessly cruel, but I didn’t see him as mean-spirited, just completely oblivious to other people’s feelings. Although, you could tell he was a caring person to those he deemed worthy of sharing his inner circle. The big question in the story was whether Hilary was part of that inner circle or just flitting on the periphery.

Would I suggest this as a playbook for young women who find themselves in a similar situation? Not likely, but then for every Warren Beatty, there’s an Annette Bening out there who actually makes it to the alter!

Lisa Beacom did an excellent job narrating Dangled Carat, her fully voiced reading was perfect for this genre and she also narrated Hilary Grossman’s first audiobook Plan Bea, which I recommend also. The audio quality, for the most part, was top notch there were a couple of areas where the audio was a little breathy, but it was corrected quickly.
