I really like the story line. I like 3 out of the 4 narrators, which made it a little tricky to enjoy the whole book, but after I got into it, the narrator I liked least wasn't as bad. All and all, this was my first audiobook and I'm hooked!
Captivating, entertaining, predictable
Any of Weiner's other works!
No, it was too much
I found the book predictable at parts which made it less than a 5 star for me!
Entertaining, with some twists and turns you don't expect, along with some heart felt moments. Overall, a good read. :)
I read this book without knowing what it was about (no spoiler alert here) and was NOT disappointed. I have read every Jennifer Weiner book and can honestly say she is getting better and better in her writing. The narraters were great too! Their voices matched what I imagined the characters would be like.
This book was nothing complicated - just a good solid read. Was actually bummed when I finished because I MISSED it! Have been thinking about it every since.
Say something about yourself!
This story is so well written. The narration perfect. The production premium. Together it made this book a treasure. I so appreciate the work everyone did to bring this story to Audible. I enjoy most of the books purchased but some are treasures. This tale is a treasure. About midway through I thought "Oh, no this is going to be depressing". So grateful it was not. It is a contemporary story delivered by a great storyteller. Truly I thank you.
I was skeptical about listening to 'chick lit' on audio, but have been totally immersed in this audiobook from the beginning. Each chapter is narrated by a different character, and hence I wasn't overly irritated by the narrater's voice. The story is engaging & I thoroughly enjoyed it. As a mother, the story is one that is close to my heart.
Superb character development! Each character will touch some component of your personality. This was my favorite book of all hers
Thought I'd take a chance because the book sounded light and fun. It was light but it was way too thin on character development for some of the major "twists" that come at the end of the story. Yep, I listened to the whole thing thinking that it would get better. It didn't. What a shame.
Once again, Jennifer Weiner, whose earlier works I adored, has let me down. Yet another one of her superficial studies of women. I actually didn't finish this one because frankly, I couldn't stand the thought of wasting one more minute w/any of these ladies; every one of them from Annie to Julia to India to Bettina - very sad and predictable creatures. I wish Jennifer Weiner would return to her fun early days. The last few books she's put out have been nothing but dull, predictable duds. C'mon Jen, give us another "Goodnight Nobody?" We need more characters like that! And yes, Janey DOES make it to this one, but I barely recognized her. On the bright side of this recording are the readers. Each actress brings the character to life. It's just a pity that they have such pathetic material to read.
