A better narrator and more character development would have made this a better listening experience.
I doubt I'll listen to anything by Gale Forman again.
The narrator sounded like a middle aged woman but the book is told from a 17 year old's perspective so it was very off putting.
None, I just wish they all had stronger personalities.
Seriously, don't waste your time.
The story was nice and happy, but I really just wanted to comment on the narrator. The story is supposed to be about a 17 year old girl, but the narrator sounds more like she's around 30 years old. It makes it hard to picture a high school student talking.
I have a book addiction and an 2 hour commute, thank god for the sanity of audible
Yes, The story was compelling. You are right there in the moment with her as she has to make her choices
she gives the character a great voice, helps keep you engaged in some of the slow points of the story. Had me in tears several times, where if I had been reading I am not sure that that would of happened
It had a good story line, and realistic characters.
The ending :)
She was a good match for the main character telling the story.
I read during my commute, and I looked forward to listening on the drive.
Good book, and I am going to get the second book.
What can I say? Outstanding listen. Author, Gayle Forman, you really get it. Kirsten Potter, you really get it and perfect for the voice to send the message out there. High recommend for anyone to read.
Yes I would try another one of her books.
She put some amazing feeling in her reading.
The overall story was extremely interesting, some portions were a bit sappy sweet, but overall a good story and should make for an even better movie. The tears will be flowing so don't listen on the road if you don't relish the idea of being gawked at by surrounding drivers!
The story was very nice - I listened to it straight through the day
This was a good story. I would possibly listen to it again. It was well written and wrapped up well. Very creative.
The strength of this book is the complexity and richness of the backstory. The life the character is living is rich and full. Her memories and the response of her friends and family tell a varied and complex story of a young girl maturing into womanhood surrounded by interesting people.
I loved this book. I loved the relationships and the story line and how the author told the story of her characters by going back in time and throughout the novel created these characters from the ground up. As soon as I was done listening to it, I immediately wanted to download Where She Went. *spoilers* I can't wait to see Mia on her new adventure, being the all-star cellist she was meant to be, and her reconnection with Adam. Simply fabtabulous (so fabulous it needed a new word).
