I am a miracle worker. Doing what I can to choose love over fear.
This book was a title I found when I searched for the narrator Emma Galvin and I feel lucky. This is the perfect fiction, it is unlike the other performances by Emma Galvin placed in our time. Picking a moment in this book is like asking "If you could pick one book for the rest of your life. which would you choose"? It is not a dull moment in it. However, you need to be aware it is not very realistic. This is fiction which will put you in a different place. It let's you into a cooler version of Gossip girl and you are herby invited. Take this invitation and say yes to this fantastic joyride. You will not regret it if you are a fan of "Hunger games","Divirgent" and "Love unscripted" if you love TV shows like "Prison break, Oz and Bones you have to grab this!
She does a great job. This should however be a title read by Emma Galvin reading the female voices and Nick Podhel should have read the male voices to give the reading full justice.
"College roller coaster with fight club members"
Characters were not formed very well. Storyline was not very believable. I read reviews that this book was really good but was so disappointed.
Not very believable
Disappointment I read it
Waste of time
I love the story. I admit that the events are not common to the normal young adults life, but anyone who had the young angsty love affair in their youth, complete with emotional roller coaster will totally love this.
Travis, of course. Everyone wants to believe that their " bad boy" has a loving emotional side and wouldn't ever look at another girl once they found "the one".
I've seen other reviews praising the narrator's performance and I don't get it. To me, she sounded like a 12 year old boy, and that was the prominent voice you hear as the narrator and Abby. I had trouble for awhile distinguishing between the Travis and Abby characters. America is the only female character that sounds like a girl consistently. It was more than halfway through the book before Abby's voice took on more feminine characteristics.
And the scene where Travis sings "I Can't Get No (Satisfaction)" by the Stones really annoyed me. It's a pretty well known song, and even though the narrator didn't need to sing it, she says the words in such a monotone, drab way that it looses the intent of the scene in the book.
Finch. He'd be fun to hang out with. :)
As much as I love the story, I can't rate it 5 stars because the epilogue ending is pretty hokey and winds the book up on a silly note. It really ruined the end of the story for me. I can't wait though, for "Walking Disasrer" to be released. It's Travis' version of the story.
Well thought out, planned and written.
Although she tends to seem confused at times, Abbey is my favorite character being the protagonist, nothing could swirl around without her.
At first, her monotone bothered me. I pushed past that and just listened to a great story.
Abbey and Travis, just to hear their next drama.
I liked this book...a LOT! I immediately looked for another book written by Jamie McGuire only to be disappointed that there were none. At least, not on Audible. I will keep my eyes peeled though because I really like her style and well planned out script.
Its about a girl that wants a new start, but even though she's trying to run from her past. It still catches up with her. With her new start she begins a new friendship with a guy that she wants to stay as friends because he reminded s her of her past and dosent want to start anything more then friendship. He goes from being a guy that sleeps with ever girl to only wanting her and chances just for her cause he loves her.. And after trying to fight it. She figure out that no matter how much she wants to fight against it, she knew that her happiness was with him.
It make you feel like these are real people and your living their love story with them.
I like the name.
I love this book. It has to be my favorite book that I have read (listened to).
You can FEEL the love that is shared throughout this story. I couldn't stop listening to this audiobook and very much looking forward to the next.
It was definitely one of the better ones.
I have never came across one that compares in this genre.
Travis, he was not your typical college student, but he was so much better than expected.
I had this on my wish list but a friend was reading it and told me I had to get the book. I am so glad I listened to her. This book is a great read. I cannot wait until the book from Travis's point of view comes out.
Absolutely and I have. Love the love hate relationships.
The last fight. I was so frighten that we would loose Abby or Travis. It didn't look good.
Their first bedroom experience.
Yes, I would have loved too.
A good read
Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
Yes, Emma Galvin is great!
When after so much drama and back and forth, they finally get together.
Each character's voice is very realistic. She helps to paint a picture.
I've read a lot of reviews about this book and there are many strong opinions about Travis. People have called him crazy, psycho, possessive. I can see this, but I also can't help but be sympathetic. To be loved so much it drives you crazy, I couldn't help but love that. Travis is all over the place, so is Abby for that matter, but I think that works for them. It was very touching.
