This book is one of the best books I've listened to. I enjoyed it so much that this is actually the first review I've written about any audiobooks (and I've listened to hundreds!)
I couldn't pick one memorable moment because each moment in this book was so memorable. I loved the characters, and the narration was spot on! I loved the author's accent throughout the reading and it rang so true with the dialogue and wording.
Probably my favorite character was Big. She had such perseverance and such a big heart full of love. We all should be so lucky to have someone like her in our lives!
I had a couple of
I usually don't like books narrated by authors because they are usually very flat. This book was soooo not flat! The narration enhanced the story tenfold. It couldn't have been told by any other reader because it just wouldn't have been as heartfelt. The story was somewhat complicated with twists and turns, but I never felt lost because of the way the story unfolded. Thank you so much for offering this wonderful piece of fiction.
I can't comment on any aspect of the actual story, as I didn't manage to get through more than five minutes of the book because Joshilyn Jackson's voice is absolutely awful.
Great book. Sorry it ended. Characters seemed very real. I am going to recommend it to my friends and family.
Since it's not educational ~ I would say no. I listened while I did chores, it was interesting and not all that predictable. I wish the story finished a little further down the road!
I liked the fact that Mosie was a pure character!
I really like the way this book was narrated, nice voice, cute accent!
I wish it were a little cleaner. She used the F bomb numerous times. It would have been a nicer story without the harsh language.
It was an uplifting, positive story.
I would've changed the narrator. She was too nasally and whiny. Or I would've used 3 different narrators.
This story did seem a bit adolescent at times, and not just when Mosey was telling her story. It was a bit predictable.
This was my first audible download, and it definitely didn't disappoint! I was hooked on the story by the end of the first chapter, and listened at every opportunity until the story was over. The story and the characters drew me in very quickly. I particularly enjoyed how the chapters were from a rotating point of view, with enough variation in the writing and reading style to instantly know whose point of view you were listening to. Joshlyn Jackson's performance was fantastic, really adding to my enjoyment of the book. I highly recommend this audiobook.
I needed a kick start to my workout program...so as a former book-junkie-now-mommy of three...I have NO time to sit and read. Perfect solution is books on my I-Pod. The only time I can
Hard question. None of the characters are infallible and all have some level of moral standards. My instinct is to say Liza is my favorite, even though she make some very poor choices. Adjacent to her poor choices for herself is a high ability to look out for the well-being of others.
Her voice is intoxicating.
I want to ask Joshilyn Jackson about one specific (minor) character that was not tied up at the end of the story. Why was the character's end left out? What happened to this person?
I would definitively recommend this book to others, the story is great and it keeps you guessing what is going to happen.
What I liked best about this story is the power of love that sorrounds the story. Even though the characters don't believe in happy endings, they are suprised by the power of love, being God or whatever you prefer to call it.
The performance was ok, the voice is a little distracting, but once you get used to it, it flows fine with the story.
Yes, I really enjoyed this book.
Enjoyed her voice.
Such a good book and great story about 3 generations of women.
