Where'd You Go, Bernadette

by Maria Semple

Open iTunes to Buy


*Soon to be a major motion picture starring Cate Blanchett* A whip-smart, hysterical dramedy about a family in crisis after the disappearance of its brilliant, misanthropic matriarch. Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom. Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle--and people in general--has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands. A trip to the end of the earth is problematic. To find her mother, Bee compiles email messages, official documents, secret correspondence--creating a compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's role in an absurd world.

Perfect commuter book

This book is great. I love the story and the way it is constructed. I have one hour each way commute. I was literally looking forward to it just to listen to this book. Amazing narrator. Love it. I want to listen to it again!

Truly great!

I am already missing the characters. I really loved this audiobook. The narrator was sublime!

Pulled me in from the beginning

I finished this book last night and I'm missing it already. I rarely feel that way about a book anymore. The narrator was the best I've ever heard!!
