This novel was a refreshingly light novel. The characters were well developed and the issues presented in the story line were very realistic. I enjoyed every minute of this listen and felt as though I were watching a scandalous lifetime movie. Whenever I stopped the audiobook I looked forward to the next time I would have to pick it up.
I enjoyed the narrator, but the story was just okay for me. I appreciated the fact that the book didn't rely solely on bedroom scenes to propel the story forward.
Once I started listening to this tale I was scarcely willing to stop- even for work. The narrator's skillful rendition makes the story all the better. This is one of those great stories that forces self-reflection and grants its readers a willingness to refrain from judging the "perceived" indiscretions of others. I ABSOLUTELY loved this story and not just because of the satisfying ending.
I read this a long time ago (way before the movie ruined it). The narrator is incredible nailing all the characters and inflections. In would highly recommend!
I've read this book many times and then got the audio version because I wanted to hear it on a road trip. I thought the narration was good, though I really didn't like how pathetic the main character sounded. She didn't sound that bad in my head. Other than that, great book written by a great author and a great story that isn't exactly black and white. I would definitely recommend it.
I listened to something blue first and loved it . I probably would've liked this one too if another narrator read it. It got on my nerves so bad I had to stop listening
The storyline in the movie made Rachel more likable .. She is not In the book
Julia whelen or Becca battoe
It has one
I liked that Rachel finally took a stand for herself, but I didn't like how weak she was really throughout the entire book. She's an intelligent and accomplished woman, but all she seems to think about is her best friend being a bitch to her since they met and her yearning for her fiance. I understand it's difficult to stand up against your friends especially when you're so used to their behavior, but in my opinion I don't like that she went behind her back and continued the affair. I think she should have been upfront with Dax from the beginning instead of allowing herself to be his mistress until he decided it was time. I thought this would be a cute romantic dramedy, but it just annoyed me, I'm glad I held off on purchasing the sequel.
Game of Thrones book 2
I think she did a great job of conveying the emotions of the characters.
I actually so the movie first, but never saw the last 20 minutes so I figured it would be nice to read the book since I liked the film...I was wrong. The movie changed a lot, but I'm glad that it cut Rachel and Dax's relationship to only a few stolen moments, but I didn't like how they changed the Ethan and Rachel's relationship and cut out Hillary.
Honestly I don't know what woman would read this and think it's so amazing. Emily Griffin is a good writer, but if her female characters are all like Rachel I'd prefer to steer clear.
