This was the first Lisa Jackson book I have had on Audible, and I enjoyed it very much. The narrator Christina Traister did a really great job bringing the characters to life, and there were a lot of characters she had to work with. The story was good and was for the most part believable. I could see all the crazy people as a part of a family all living together in that great big house on the island, getting on each other's nerves. I suspected Ava wasn't quite as crazy as her husband made her out to be about 6 chapters in, but to find out more, you will just have to listen to the book. Oh, and just one more point. People who are in a wheelchair or are no longer able to walk are not referred to as handicapped. Please use the correct term "person with a disability", or someone who is disabled.
I couldn't finish this book due to the narrator and how unlikable the main character was. The narrator yelled the name Noah so many times and it was difficult to distinguish between characters.
Also, the main character was very whiney and rude to everybody. She kept wondering why people didn't like her. I know why, she wasn't likable.
Enjoyed every minute of it, I am bed ridden and probably listen to 3 or 4 books a week so it is hard to surprise me, this book surprised me and least 3 times.
Worth the read
Yes, but only because I've liked other Lisa Jackson books. If this were the first, NO.
The story itself has its good points but it is melodramatic and circles monotonously!
At the beginning, I loved this narrator. She enunciates slightly differently and in a way that keeps you interested. However, she screams every time the main character does and is as melodramatic as the character. I had to skip whole chunks of the book.
It make me want to scream myself - MAKE IT STOP!
There was not a dull moment in this book. I hope the author has more like this. I listened on my long commute and while I did paperwork at home. It made both far more enjoyable
I have seen a few negative comments but I think this book is true Lisa Jackson. I was taken into the story as if I was actually there. Loved it. The narrorator was excellent. I will always recommend Lisa Jackson books.
