The book deals with real life issues associated with abandonment and it does not romanticise the protagonist. It is beautifully written and thought-provoking and explores the defensive nature of those who do not fully experience love or nurture in their childhood.
The protagonist follows the traditional formula of a hero but remains realistic.
The reader was good but at times the voice had an irritating quality to it.
The description about the post pregnancy experience was incredibly realistic and uncomfortable.
This is definitely a good read.
it's a well written story about a troubled girl and her struggles . She's not a loveable character but she understands the language of Flowers
The story is raw and believable . I was totally engaged from beginning to end
I'd recommend this book
it would be perfect for a book club
It hooked me right away and kept my interest all the way through
When she came down to be with him at the end
I was so engrossed with this book that I didn't want it to end. Both heartbreaking and heartwarming. The narrator could not have been more perfect for the part. Excellent story, excellent narrator, very well executed by both the author and the narrator together. Highly recommended!
I am a huge audio fan and like the addition of the narrator.
the main girl. she was so brave!
suited the characters so well.
recommended to all of my reading friends.
This was my book club's selection. I rolled my eyes a lot. The main character is selfish and unlikeable. Silly and inane. With so much good literature available, don't waste your time here
I loved the way communicating the language of flowers brought all of the characters together and ultimately gave hope for second chances.
I enjoyed this book so much! It is well written, believable and clever. I'll never look at a flower the same again. The narrator did a wonderful job. I would recommend this to my older children as well as al those who enjoy a clean and thought provoking read!
I loved the book and could not wait to get back to it each day. The narration was excellent and I liked the way the chapters alternated between the present and the past.
