This book held my interest. However, it was average to above average as compared to other books to which I have listened. The narrator was very good. I'd recommend it as okay and probably worth the time spent. It would not however be the best listen.
I am on the road often, so audio books are the way to go for me!
This story of an adopted child needing to search for her identity and to find her birth other really was touching and very well done. The author has excellent insight into all concerned parties in an adoption. Very human, interesting and enjoyable!
No. Decent book but once was enough.
I didn't care for the ending. I understood how and why it was that way, just wanted more.
I loved the story line and narration of Where We Belong. Emily Giffin skillfully crafted multifaceted interactive characters. I loved the content and progression of the story. I felt like these people could be my close friends. The narrator Orlagh Cassidy beautifuly brought every single character to life. Each vocal was distinct and believable. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
Lots of scenes were my favorites. I liked when Kirby showed up at her birth mother's door. I loved the tension between the the adoptive and birth mother. I liked the conflict when Kirby saw the expensive dress in her best friends purse realizing that she had just stolen it. I especially liked the stressful event when Kirby and Marilyn sought out Kirby's father.
Yes, I could have listened to this book all in one setting, but I really wanted to stretch it out, so I could savor each moment.
Yes. It was well written, had good narration, and was enjoyable to listen to overall.
Kirby was my favorite character mostly because I could relate to her. I'm close to her age and I was also adopted, though I have never met my birth parents. I have always wanted to meet them though, so I think one reason I liked the story so much is because I was able to do that through Kirby.
Everything about it was great. She changed her voice well with the change of each character, which helps keep everyone straight.
I think I would probably take Conrad. I liked the way that he was able to bond with Kirby so quickly and I just really like his laid back personality.
Read it! You won't regret it!
The story was very interesting and had me wanting to know more even it ended.
This book is exactly what I expected it to be, a nicely written story that had a happy ending. It was predictable, no real surprises and a nice story line that is nicely written. I would recommend this book but I wouldn't say it is a "must read/listen." You aren't really missing anything if you don't get it, but you will enjoy it if you do.
I always enjoy Orlagh Cassidy. The story was charming and I found myself liking both primary characters, the young girl and the woman who gave her up for adoption 18 years earlier. Unfortunately, about half-way through I found I could predict the ending and the author did not surprise.
I have enjoyed other Giffen books more.
Yes. Cassidy does a good job switching between the two primary characters. The teen girl's voice may have been a bit too "girly," but I was not bothered by it.
Other than getting my laundry done while I listened? No...I am not sure adoption stories ever wrap up that neatly.
I loved how it was realistic !
To me it is the scene where Kirby is playing her music in her fathers pub!
Kirby, very deep and multidimentional!
