I read the reviews and I am glad I chose the book. Good story. The narrator was great. I will look for more books by the JP and other books narrated by the JW. I did question whether someone straight out of high school would be so knowledgeable of life but then I remembered from the start you could tell/feel she was quite intelligent. I will listen again.
I enjoyed the story and the narration was very good. Somewhere towards the middle of the story, I was able to guess the outcome of the story but it did not keep me from staying engaged throughout the entire story. This was a nice, light, romance with a refreshing lack of overt sex scenes.
I actually give this book 4.5 stars.
This was an incredibly clever story with a great plot. I love it when the author makes the characters so real and vivid that I become so invested in their lives. I cared about them, cried for/with them, and rooted for them.
Celeste was adorable and quirky and perfect. Just like Julie, I didn't want Celeste to change completely and I'm glad she didn't. This family was so broken but put on such a facade. It was heartbreaking and sad.
There is something that happens in the story that I guessed right off, but then doubted myself several times only to be right in the end. It was just so weird how the family lived. However, it was all explained in the end and was realistic. My small issue with the "thing" (I don't want to give it away) is that I feel it went on too long. I was ready for it to be over long before it was.
I love angst and heartbreak but I love the happy endings and the romantic love story the most. In some of these angsty books, I feel like the happy ever after is so short at the end. I need more. I want to see more happiness for these characters that suffered, cried, and hurt so much throughout the story.
This was a really great story with some exceptional characters. I recommend this for anyone that does like to cry, laugh, and have their happy ending.
I have just recently started listening to audio books and I'm still not sure how I feel about it. This is the first book where I truly enjoyed the Narrator and didn't feel like they sounded goofy. I loved this story, it had allot of funny parts and I found myself actually laughing out loud. The narrator did a great job of playing out the different emotions without sounding ridiculous. Out of the 4 or 5 books I have now listened to I am most happy overall with this one.
not exactly what i was expecting when i read the blurb of the book. I knew what was going on very early on in the book but still didn't make me like it any less. I loved the characters (especially celeste) I loved all the quirkiness. Made me laugh out loud & tear up at times.
5 Crazy Ass Must Listen Stars!!!!!
This book threw me for one hell of a loop there. Shocking twist, funny, dorky tees, quirky teen, cardboard cutout, tears shed and so much more. Holy brain cramp here!
just listened to this for the second time. Love the characters, the storyline is great , has an unexpected ending and lots of great lines. Would highly recommend this if you're in the mood for a romantic comedy!
One of my favorite books in print, I'll admit I was a little leery of the audio version. I was happily surprised and satisfied by the audible version. Julia Whelan did a fantastic job bringing these characters who are so dear to my heart to life. This is a story you don't want to miss - unique, touching, funny, smart, with a hero unlike any you've read before.
