I was so sad to finish this book. You feel as if you know each of the characters personally. The readers were fantastic! Best audiobook I have listened to in years
I fell in love with the charming, quirky characters of Guernsey as easily as the heroine did. This is a historical fiction gem.
This book is beautifully written and read. I was hooked from the moment I started listening to it.
After the rave reviews, I was excited to listen to this, but it was the first audio book I've listened to that I really didn't care for. I appreciate the story with it's historical significance, and the writing style was clever, but as an audio book I found it pretty boring and my mind wandered quite a bit. I thought that the format it was written in (letters sent between the different characters) really made what was a simple story take twice the time it needed to take. The relationship part of the plot reminded me of the new phenom book Twilight (the author would probably be appalled to hear that comparison!), but don't want to say much more on that to give anything away. So overall...eh.
I was immediately caught up in the lives of the delightful characters of this book. The readers do a wonderful job of bringing them alive.
I hated to see this book end. It was well written, enjoyable and included a bit of history. I don't know how it would be as a written book, but it's made for listening. It may be a book club recommendation
This is a fantastic story. While I'm not usually a big fan of either post-WWII stories or the letter-writing format for novels, this tale of Juliette and her adventures is wonderful. Makes me want to take a trip to Guernsey and meet these people myself.
This is one of those audio books you hate to see come to an end. I got lost in the characters and the story line. The narrators were wonderful. Highly recommended!
