Loved the story, needs a new narrator though. Narrators voice started each sentence loud but trailed off so I could barely hear or understand him by the end of every sentence.
Angst ridden and sad, the voice of the narrator was too muffled and soft to hear him over traffic noise at times.
This book felt like I was watching a train wreck about to happen - you could see the problem from a long way off, but there was nothing you could do to prevent calamity.
Depressing book, and I'm tired of depressing books at our book club. If there are recommendations for books with at least one likable character that has an actual plot and doesn't involve: drug use, cheating spouses, constant angst - please by all means, let me know.
I felt so many emotions listening to this book. The author made you really see and understand the heart if each of the characters. This is one of the very best books I have ever read.
I loved this book! The setting, the characters and this story of love. Noah Taylor's voice was a perfect choice as it blended Tom's kindness, persistence and devotion to Isabelle, and helped us to love & understand her too. Thanks to all involved for this gift. It was my first audible book, and now I'm hooked.
Sad, thought provoking, detailed
The way Lucy brought Tom and Isabelle's relationship alive.
When Lucy gives Tom his birthday present and writes in the atlas "I love you forever forever forever forever!
The last chapter made me cry, it was all so sad about not being able to have a child of their own and what Isabelle had resorted too to achieve that dream. It could have all been avoided if they had done the right thing in the first place. Their lives were forever dramatically changed😢 But on the flip side I could understand their reasons for keeping Lucy!
I love this book and have recommended it to many people, but not on audio. This is one of the very few times I've had trouble understanding the narrator and I've heard the same comment from other avid audiobooks listeners. This is a beautiful book, well written and full of hear-breaking moral decisions, but one that is better read from the book.
Mesmerizing story and the best narration performance ever. I'm so glad I read this book it was an unforgettable story of love and heartache and a fabulous performance.
