Review of ‘If You’d Just Listened to Me in the First Place’

Posted on Updated on

Ella Boudreaux is great at nagging, but she doesn’t consider that a negative trait. She considers herself, in fact, the best at what she does. After all, what would her husband, Charlie, do or be if she didn’t nag him like she does. Of course, one has to ask, what it has gotten her?

If You’d Listened to Me in the First Place by Barbara Venkataraman is a hilarious short piece told from Ella’s point of view about how she met her husband. Has Ella’s nagging helped her to achieve her life’s goals? I’m not telling. You’ll have to read this short piece to find out for yourself.

My main complaint is that it ended far too quickly. I was just getting interested in Ella and her quirks when it ended.

I got this story free in exchange for an unbiased review. I have to say, it’s not too bad at all.

I give it three stars.
