What would I do without audio books?!!
So I might be too old to read this, about an 18 year old girl and her last summer before college. But I like a good coming of age story and this seemed like a good choice. I must say I really enjoyed it. The author has a subtle, patient writing style that allows a story to gracefully unfold, without feeling forced or rushed. The characters weren't totally predictable which I like. And best of all it had a wonderful ending. Total satisfaction!
I wasn't sure what to expect but it was quite a journey. I loved all the characters and all the surprises and developments.
It took me a few minutes to get into this book, as I thought the narrator was kind of annoying. I gave it a chance and her voice began to grow on me. Book was very cute, with a good story. I was pretty sad when it ended! Will download another from this author.
I have downloaded other books by this author and Along For The Ride has been my favorite so far. I felt like the characters were all well-developed and I could really visualize what Auden was going through. I think I enjoyed this story so much because it seemed believable-from her parents divorce to making friends in a new town. Many books in this genre are entertaining, but completely ridiculous and unrealistic. Great listen!
Along For The Ride is undoubtfuly my favorite book. I learned from it so much. Every second sentence is one that I would be proud to quote. I laughed and cryed with the carichtors, I could really feel for them all most of the time. The author has a really good sence of humer. The reader is excellent, I really loved the way she read. Her reading made the book come alive for me. The carichtors are developing and changing during the book, and the ending is a kind of new begining for everyone. When you buy this book, you are along for many rides. So enjoy your rides.
