Hysterical - very funny, a wonderful light story.

A unique way to approach a book, and a fun read.

I listened to this book and loved it. It's like a hilarious sitcom. My teenage son (who usually prefers music to my books in the car) didn't want me turn this one off!

I am not sure I would have finished this novel if I had not been listening to it on audio -- what astoundingly self-absorbed and awful characters! Sure, that's partially the point; it's also not very fun to read.

Tedious characters who get more bizarre and do increasingly things as the book plods on. They'd gleefully go on a midnight walk in a lonely wood when there's an escaped maniac murderer on the loose.

Random, quirky and a lot of fun. Embrace the over-the-top storyline and enjoy the adventurous tale.

I adored this book! You simply MUST read this book if you've ever lived in Seattle, visited Seattle, or heard of Seattle.

Great read! loved the characters, the plot, the setting, the story! It was not a simplistic chic read which is what I was expecting. Much more complex and layered! Loved it!

I can definitely see how the author was a writer on Arrested Development. The story and characters are sometimes over the top, but so funny and told in such an engaging way.
Normally I hate it when a narrator tries different voices for different characters, but this one was fantastic.

Truly the best audiobook I've ever listened to and the narrator gave me chills during Bee's visit to the Christmas program. I could listen to that narrator read the phone book. The actual story is a grandiose 5! I completely fancy all the characterization throughout this novel. On top of all that's great about this novel; it is laugh out loud funny throughout!

Where'd You Go, Bernadette is one of the quirkiest books of the year. It is a satire of the rich and the lifestyles of Seattle and Microsoft, but is dead on funny. Told through the voice of Bernadette's teenage daughter Bee (short for Balashnika) and vairous e-mails, text messages and other communications. Hysterical!
